The Cutting Cafe design team!

Let's make a little gift...

I'm so excited to be part of The Cutting Cafe design team and share my very first project with you today! I've taken a plethora of photos so sit back and relax!














I used The Cutting Cafe's... Greeting Card Folder cutting file,along with the All Occasion Circle Word Set 1 Printable Stamps! (1.5in & 2in for the yellow centers)
The digi papers are Summer Driggs Moment collection! And the SU! supplies include, cardstock in olive & rose red and the scallop punch. The folder holds four cards and envelopes. There's room on the inside pocket to write a little note to the recipient or put a greeting! So what do ya think, pretty fun stuff, huh?
I am so impressed with all the awesome printables 'the Cafe' has and this wonderful opportunity Regina has given me to play with them....I feel truly blessed! Check it out, I know you'll find 'that one thing' you've been looking for!
Now, you all know, I couldn't have a post without challenges, so look what I found...
Stampin' For the Weekend~pocket/wallet cards.
The Corrosive Challenge~more folds!
Creative Inspirations(Mon)~ anything but a card. And a different challenge blog called Creative Inspiration (wed) that also wanted to see Not a Card! And this is my second entry for Charisma Cardz for their unique challenge this week...did you visit them yet??

Have a lovely day and may you be filled with overflowing joy! Blessings!!
