Enclosure Cards

Welcome! So sorry it's been a while since I've been able to post anything here. We had a great weekend, and I even had some time play in my stamping area today, so life is good! :)

We had hoped to go camping Saturday night, but the nearby state park campground that we like is already closed for the season!! Just before loading up all of the camping gear after lunch on Saturday, I called the campground to make sure they still had spots available and got a recording announcing that they had closed on Labor Day. Oops!! I suppose we could have headed out to a different state park, but this one is close enough that we could camp overnight Saturday and still get back Sunday morning with enough time to clean up and make it to church and Sunday School. So we did a little geocaching Saturday afternoon instead, and after supper we played one of our favorite board games (a family favorite from my childhood, Bonkers!) a few times. After the kids were in bed, DH and I caught an on-demand movie along with some popcorn. A fun day!!

So here's what I was up to in my stamping area this afternoon. I'm still working on 3 x 3 enclosure cards (see this post for background).
This one is for:
This is the first time I've used ultra-fine glitter, and now I can completely relate when other crafters say what a mess they've made!! It really does get everywhere. It would have been wise to use my Embossing Buddy first--next time for sure!!


This second little CAS enclosure card is for:

And finally, I'd like to share this little owl card.
I had fun using my newest paper punch for the first time--it's a Martha Stewart branch punch that I found on clearance at Wal-Mart last week. Fun, fun!! I'm entering this card in:
Thanks so much for dropping by and checking out my little slice of bliss today!!!

Oh, what fun cards and so handy to have around! I love how you punched out the front for each one. That glitter one sure caught my eye (and thanks for the warning about the super-fine glitter!) and that pink & blue owl is just adorable!

Cute quick little cards. I have never figured out why camp grounds close. People do camp in the winter. Well hope you had a great weekend regardless. Can you tell I am behind in blogging. LOL
