Fun with Swiss Dots


I had a lot of fun playing this morning with my new Swiss Dots folder. Thanks to Kim for picking it up for me! I waited too long to go get it after I knew they were finally at one of our local stores and when I got there, there weren't any left! So, Kim to the rescue...she actually had doubles of the Swiss Dots and the Paisley, so I bought both off her. :) I think this card turned out to be a fun looking card, I think it'll be appropriate for a birthday or perhaps the arrival of a new baby girl. I just learned today that a friend in our playgroup just had a new little baby boy...yeah, gotta love new little babies. Now, we just need a new little girl in the group for me to give this card to! lol :)

Well, Jim's bringing a friend home for supper tonight for a 'Thai' themed night...so I should actually be making the dinner instead of making cards and blogging...even though it's a lot more fun! Anyway, I had better get the show on the road, somehow I don't think they want leftovers instead of my Thai dinner! lol :)

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Julie, I love what you did with the circle punches and slot punch to put the ribbon through! It's a great design detail. Beautiful card...I wish I wouldn't have sold my Natural Beauty set....sometimes we are "hasty", aren't we?
