Bubbles and Swiss Cheese

Do ya like that title?  Bubbles and swiss cheese--I'm not talking wine and cheese here.  I'm talking about this card I made today:

I used the swiss cheese border punch around the edges in the hopes it would look like bubbles.  Everyone on the message board says it does, and they're the experts!   So bubbles it is.  I love it when I can think outside the box.  It doesn't come to  me everyday!  Oh, and of course I used the ever so fantastic A Child's Year to get that cute tub cut.  I really use that cart more than all my others combined.

Speaking of which, here's another card I made today also using A Child's Year.

I love how soft and girly this turned out.  I just bought this great new background stamp and wasn't sure what to do with it.  So I inked it up with pink and blue and created a background and the rest just fell in place without even thinking about it.  And the best part is it's all from scraps!  I'm really working hard on that pile.  I joined a scrap exchange on the message board and we were to send a small baggy of scraps to someone.  Well, I sent this HUGE envelope filled to the brim--it cost me $2.50 to mail it.  Heh, heh, heh--her problem now!  Thanks for taking a peek!


  1. Wow.. I love both of them. Sad to say, I haven't used my A Child's year yet... You are so funny Ramona.

  2. Both beautiful cards Ramona. I LOVE the bubbles! Just ordered A Child's Year. You convinced me I had to have it. hugs to you, eileen

  3. Beautiful cards Ramona! I love them both, and especially the swiss cheese. What an adorable name for such a cute card. We can come up with some real doozies! lol
    I must start using my Cricut more, one reason why I haven't posted on the MB lately.

  4. Those cards are amazing! Love the bubbles punch! Whoever thought of the name swiss cheese for it, must have been a great cheese lover hahaha!

    A child's year cart, on top of my "to buy" list, right after the paisley one!
