Card with new Persia folder

I just made several cards similar to this, all for different occasions. This one is for my chemo buddy, who, as she gets sicker, I think of more and more. It's such an easy card to do. I used the new cuttlebug Persia combo folder for the embossed background. I love the scalloped frame on it. Haven't used the dies yet, but they are awesome--the scalloped frame, a super cool peacock, a leaf, and a flourishy thing. Can't wait to try them out! Anyhow, I digress. The girl cut of course came from A Child's Year--I just can't get enough of that cartridge! The sentiment is a new stamp and I thought it went great with this cut. Quick and sweet.
On a side note, I put myself on a stamp ban because I have sooo many and I haven't used a lot of them. I'm just so addicted to stamps. Know how long I lasted? 24 hours. 24 hours and someone came on the message board with these gorgeous stamped cards and I rushed to ebay and bought them! I'm so weak.... Thanks for taking a peek!

Mini album & frame

This is my 1st mini album and I was terrified I would totally mess up. The photos are of my granddaughter, and this was a gift for her mother, so of course I wanted it to turn out decent. Once I got into it, I had a lot of fun with it. Now I have abunch more I want to do! What do ya think--did I do ok?

Most of the images came from A Child's Year. A few from Walk In My Garden, Home Decor, and Indie Art. The font is mostly from Alphalicious, and the tags are from George. Oh, and the inner green edges were embossed with the cuttlebug. Thanks for taking a peek!
