Easter cards

Easter cards using the Cricut Easter seasonal cartridge.....
chipboard,patterned paper,brad,cotton ball and pop dots
This is my first card using this folding technique.

I am not totally pleased with my first efforts but will try to
do better with the next ones...

Ladies I wish I had more time to craft...I started this blog
planning to have much more time then I've ended up being
able to devote to it unfortunately...

I enjoy watching what you will all come up with never fail to
Inspire me....Thank you for that....
