This is a card that Becky received in a Swap and it was so nicely done I took a photo of it and will find a day to CASE it. I should have included the designer, but maybe it is on Becky's blog.
I think I will have to include this set on my Wish List.

Friend to Friend and Coffee to Go....

This was another gift I shared with Becky the week of Convention. This little Big Shot diecut is so simple to use and you can make a little gift up so quick. I use it a lot.

A Boy's Bday Gift

I made this gift for a little guy who Brit cares for once a week. I have grown very fond of him, as Britney brings him over often. So to make his birthday a little more special, just a treat....because you want to know something, "the State Fair comes EVERY year for HIS birthday", how can i beat that one!
