I have had an absolute blast making cards with the December sets!  I hope you have enjoyed hopping around to see all the eye candy!


I always need cards for teachers, and this year I'm getting a head start!  I made this card for my 4-year-old's preschool teacher, Mrs. Q, who Katie lovingly calls, Mrs. Cube.  There are lots of different Die-namics here, so I'll just start at the beginning.  I cut out the entire alphabet with the By the Letters Die-namics set in kraft cardstock and glued them down on the kraft card base.  I did glue them all down, even though the entire middle is covered up.  I just wasn't sure where I was going with the card at first.  I stamped the sentiment from May I Have This Dance on a Mini Tabs Foursome die cut and then sewed the corners to the Oval Open Scallop Doily die cut.  The flag banners at the bottom are from Mix & Match Banners and the flower, of course, is the Fringed Perennial die-namic.  The papers are Kraft Funday Happy Days by My Mind's Eye. 

Please hop on over to Kim's blog for a list of all the design team members participating in today's pep rally.
