I'm Back....

Here are some easel cards I made. Terri and I got together to "play" last week and I started these cards using my Greeting Farms and Lilly of the Valley stamps. They are not finished I still want to dress them up with some embellishments. These three below are from Lilly of the Valley. Here are my Greeting Farm cards....
Terri and I also challenged ourself to use our Cricut Cartridges. We had to use "Wild Card & Straight from the Nest". This was my card. Terri of course blew right by me, and created I think, four cards with a lot more detail. Still I was happy with what I came up with.
On another note.....
I was recently told my hours at work would be cut. I keep hearing on the news about the economy getting better, but it's not true. I do not know is anyone else listens to Coasttocoastam on the radio or visit their site, but those who do and heard Gerald Celente this morning know that it is going to get worse. Food is going to get very expensive, jobs wil continue to leave the U.S., Students cannot find work and cannot pay their loans (but thanks to Mr Bush cannot file bankruptcy or get any release), and big companies continue to sell us out. What I did not know was that the Senate are getting ready to pass a bill (#510) which will kill off the small farmer! The people pushing it? The big food conglomerates (Kraft, etc). Yeah it's going to get ugly.
I guess I will be planting a garden this year....

love your card - and I can sympathise - things are not much better over here in the UK - unemployment, high costs - you don't even want to know how much our gas is - we pay $8 a gallon! I lived in Texas for a while a few years back and miss so much about the US - but don't miss the mosquitoes and that Texan heat!
