My card today is actually 4 1/4x4 1/4 square. I love making a small card sometimes just to mix it up a bit. The stamps are from a set by Woodware USA called Garden Greetings. The set is a wonderful mix of both sentiments and small garden images. I colored the image with Copic markers and Spica glitter pens. I finished off the card by stamping the image, using my Creative Memories Oval cutting system, and using Nestabilities to cut the scalloped oval. The ribbon is from my stash, and it is from a Christmas set. The paper is from Stampin' Up--Wild Wasabi and Real Red. Fun and fast card to make!

I have three more projects using the Raspberry Tart paper kit ( it is such a great deal at $5.50!!)available from Samantha at Scrapmaster's Paradise. She has a real eye for pairing things together, and this paper kit is one of my favorites from Stampin' Up.
I had to include some of my own paper in this one, but I couldn't resist using my new Cricut cartridge, Wild Card. The stamps that I used are from Vintage Labels by Stampin' Up. The colors are Pretty in Pink, Old Olive and Rose Red.
They will join me and Dawn for the first ever term! We are so excited! We are going to kick things off with a blog hop on Sunday, August 1st with prizes!! You don't want to miss it!
I couldn't resist making this card also for this week's Paper Sundaes challenge:

My card today is from a wonderful paper kit that Samantha has available! The paper is a retired paper called Raspberry Tart (one of my favorites!!), and I was excited to use it! I decided to make a nine patch out of the paper with a stamp in the middle...YUMMY!! You can purchase this kit and many others through Samantha at Scrapmaster's Paradise...you won't be disappointed. And, to see many samples made with all of the kits, just join the Scrapmaster's Paradise forum. We have been having a lot of fun just chatting over there about anything.

This little cutie is from the Greeting Farm set Showtime. One of Meredith's friends turned 5 a week ago, and she had a circus-themed birthday party. How perfect was this set for that occasion? I had to go with it! My team mates would love a visit from you, and we would love to have you try our challenge this week!
