I did it! My First Card!!!

After reading all the blogs and getting much inspiration I made my first card, I gave it a go! Oh boy, it was fun but I have to get this glue thing down so that it doesn't muck up (yes I meant to say MMMUCK) my card! LOL!

This is the front of the card

and the inside with I did go back and use a glue eraser to clean it up afterwards and am much happier!

The cardstock and paper are all from Basic Grey: Wander
I used the Martha Stewart scallop punch (love it!!!)
and cut the letters from the CM Cricut Cartridge: Cheerful Seasons, which is a great cartridge, it has tons of images and fonts!

still to come are my little story books....adding finishing touches!

Happy Scrapping!
