Crafty Sweetness

What do you do with a few minutes all to yourself?---- read a book, take a bubble bath, listen to music. Well with my few minutes I decided to wander around a craft store and check out what was new. I also had a 40% off coupon for Michaels that I just couldn't let go to waste :) I wandered up and down the isles looking at everything from silk flowers to rubber stamps finding nothing to spend my coupon on. Oh well, I thought, this coupon will just have to expire. And then I spied them. The cutest new die cuts from Sizzix. There were love bugs, teddy bears, baby girl and boy die cuts---I just could not decide. If you would like to take a peek at all the die cuts, here is the link to the Sizzix website.....http://www.sizzix.com/campaigns/cshow/2 I decided on the baby animal set.
Aren't they the sweetest little animals! I could hardly wait to create something with them. This is what I came up with........
This little elephant card was made with the new baby line from Melissa Frances. I just love this paper. It is so soft and sweet.


The little giraffe and lion cards were made with one of my all time favorite lines of paper--Tres Jolie by My Mind's Eye.
Let me know what you think-------
