Just a note{card}

So you know by now that I am in love with pinterest.  Since beginning this adventure back in May with blogging and Close to My Heart another of my loves has been blogs - particularly crafting blogs :) - like Lisa Stenz, Debbie Carrie and Jeanette Lynton.  So via Lisa Stenz's blog I discovered Papertrey Ink- which I am sure most of you have already heard about and this is so old news - sorry that is just the way I am, always late to the game.

Over at Papertrey I found a ton of cards that I fell in love with and wanted to duplicate.  The first one is shown here

So following the tutorial I cut out a 1 3/4 inch circle on the cricut.  Then I used my stamp set from the Dreamin Workshop on the Go and made these

I was so happy with the way they turned out!  I placed the cut out circle on the card and lined up the stamped image.  Then I lightly traced the circle with a pencil, stamped the image all the way around the pencil line, added a button and erased the pencil marks.

So much fun and I think packaged together in a gift basket they will make a perfectly beautiful Christmas gift!

And don't forget about my GIVEAWAY :)
