I have a few cards to show you today. Let's start with the Be Inspired #40 challenge on the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog. Some of the DT members have used the new Herringbone folder. Since I don't have this folder yet I used my favorite Swiss Dots folder. I made this card for a colleague who got a baby girl. If you participate in the weekly challenges this month you have a chance to win the new Cuttlebug folders. In addition to winning the new folders the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog will be giving a set of stamps of your choosing from 2Red Bananas, our sponsor.
Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper: Little Yellow Bicycle Tools: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, Martha Stewart Doily Lace edge punch, Stampin'Up! Ticker Corner punch, sewing machine Flower: Prima Marketing Letters: American Crafts Pearl: Katy Cards
I also created two ShortCuts cards. ShortCuts is teaming up with the 365 Cards blog this week. Today, the challenge is to bind two pieces of something to create a card. Here's my take on the challenge. This card is for a colleague who gave birth to a son last Thursday.
Supplies: ShortCuts Clear Card Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper: October Afternoon Ducks in a Row Letters: American Crafts Tools: Sizzix Stars #2, sewing machine Button: Rusty Pickle Other: eyelets
For my second card I used one of the kits donated by Deborah Cariker, a Memory Works consultant.

This morning we went to visit my grandma who is celebrating her 97th birthday today. She still lives on her own. She has been having a hard time since she lost her daughter in March, but I think she was looking pretty good and feeling well today.
Here's a sneak peek of the Jillibean Soup clear stamps.
I already have them and I can tell you they are great. You'll have a chance to win 6 sets. Leave a comment here today no later than Midnight EST.
Thank you for your lovely comments.
