A card-a-day {#4}

Here is today's card. I turned this one on it's side and stitched some elastic cord through it so I could tuck the chipboard tag right in there. Through the holes on the tag is some beaded wire and on the back is a family photo that is a magnet. It is stuck on there with removable adhesive so that after Christmas the grandmas can add us to the fridge. I like all of the fun circles on here they made a good home for buttons attached with hemp cord and the red brads that come with the kit.- Mixed in with some nice shiny red puff paint circles. Thanks so much for all of the nice comments you have been leaving on these cards. I have to say I am not usually much of a card maker...not for a long time anyways. I started my scrappy journey as a stampin' up demonstrator so I think now I just rebel against the old days by not making them. But as I have already said these have proven to be so much fun that I will definitely be doing more...just for a small creative something.

Hi CD !
What gorgeous cards you've made. I think, if I was able to do such great cards, I wouldn't be able to give them away... so no point me trying.
I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the Paper & Co Show and that you had a good trip back. It was worrying not to see any message on your blog for some time.
I was your assistant on the "Angels" class, on the Sunday :-D
Incredible class. You really touched me

I think your cards are amazing and I just have to tell you that as I was perusing your blog I came across your entry for your "names" such as your super hero name etc. I couldn't belive it but it's true we both have the same super hero name!!! "The Blue Smoothie" How weird is that. Here's a link to my post. http://mistylynnwhat.blogspot.com/2007/09/my-names.html
Thanks for the inspiration.
