So today is my birthday and I spent time workin on a few cards, all of the cards today are from using up some scraps.

Inks used are Blush, Crystal Blue, Sweet Leaf, Buttercup, Button is from Winter Cozy collection.

Yesterday, I went to Culpeper to a place called Stamp-N-Scrap to see a friend I know by the name of Beki, she does alot of teaching, I just wanted to check the place out, while I was there Beki was showing a few ladies how to make the Tri Shutter card, now I haven't done this so I watched for a few min, and listened to what she told the ladies about scroing at 2 and 4 and then cut at 1 1/2, now I was hoping I would remember this later, well I did, so Beki here is my first Tri Shutter card made using Tickled Pink scraps, (sorry it is a little blurry)

This next one is using Wishes again, Lucky Layers pg 27, papers are from Paper Garden collection, buttons are from Z1284 Winter and Z1281 Spring, Z2161 Petal ink, D1153 Because of You.
