California, Here We Come!!

My daughter and I are CHA-bound later this morning!! Totally can't WAIT!! (Last year, not only was she the "make-and-take" QUEEN, she went on a quest to see how many free tote bags she could score ... can't remember the total number, but it was a LOT!!! Guess we'll see if she tries to break the record this year!!

I made this card a few days ago for a friend's birthday (HB, Kaya!!). I love it when I can combine a diecut image with some texture and stamping ... (does this look enough NOT like a Hallmark card for ya, Pam???? Hehehehe!!) I think I'm gonna have to play with some more of these little fan images from the Pagoda cartridge ... they are stinkin' ca-YOOT!!

I'm soooooooooo looking forward to warmer temperatures and sunny skies!! Smiley from millan.netThe Winter Blahs are starting to get to me, man!! I'll post some pix of some of of our adventures, so come back and check it out!!

Hugs to ALL!!

I love your card too!! I would love to use your card for inspiration. My sister loves the Asian look. I happen to have the Pagoda Cricut cartridge also. What size did you cut your fan?

Gosh, Sue ... that was over a month ago!! My brain can't remember stuff I did YESTERDAY!! (hehehe!) I am guessing that it width was about 3 1/2" inches ... give or take ... :S
