A couple of New Cards

Here are a couple of new cards that I made. The first one is made using the Robotz cart as that was my newest one.

The second card is made by folding paper and laying it in a pattern behind a cutout template. I have done many of these but just got back to doing it lately. It is alot of fun and very rewarding.

Moose Card

Here is a card that I made with a moose that my special friend sent me. I put it on a card and added the sentiment and I love the way it came out. Enjoy!

Card for my Postman

Here is a card that I did for my postman. He is the greatest postman ever. I took a picture of our local post office and then went out on the internet and got a picture of their trucks and mounted it on the picture. I used Everyday Paper Dolls cart and dressed him in jeans, plaid shirt and baseball hat, as that is the way he dresses. I then put some dollars in the card.
