The Best Catch Ever!

With Father's Day just around the corner I've been scrambling to get some cards made. I found this awesome fish stamp from Northwoods Rubber Stamps when I went out of town recently, that would work nicely for Father's Day. First though, here are the cards!

Here are the stamps I colored. I wasn't happy with them so kept coloring more. When I put the glitter on them they all looked okay, so I have a bunch of extra images for masculine cards. 

I've been known to send out duplicates. I sent a tea cozy to the same person 2 years in a row. 

OOPS -- hope I don't do that again.

Here are some details.

I love making cards, but have been struggling because of my old worn out Cricut cutter that I can't seem to find replacement blades for anymore. The cutter has never really cut straight in the first place.

I'll be happy when I finally get a new one. Can anyone recommend one that you're particularly happy with? 

I hope you're having a good week so far!

Talk to you soon!
