Postmarked with Love card made using 3 Birds on Parade criut cartridge

Hello, friends!

Sorry I have been MIA. I was at CHA last week and have had the hardest time recuperating. Also, I have had tons of stuff in my personal life totally blow up(you know how it goes). Also, we are getting ready to go back to school around here. I am taking three more classes this fall and I don't wanna ;-) I am however, looking forward to my son going back. He is driving me crazy!

Here is a card I made using 3 birds on Parade. One of the great things about this cartridge is the word art. It makes scrapbook titles and cards a snap!


I used papertrey Ink paper and ribbon.


Have a great day!

Ohhh Snap said...

What a cute card! ohhh my buggg, my sister and I must have hit the papertrey ink booth 3 times lol. just what i need, another craft addiction lol.

I'm still spinning from CHA, and I was only there for the supershow lol. I've got my fingers crossed for you that things get better soon. I love that staples commercial with the parents using the shopping carts like scooters through the school supplies section while 'the most wonderful time of the year' song plays. DD doesn't see it the same way of course lol.

It was so wonderful to meet you at the circle event!
