Creating with Crafty Secrets

Happy Monday All!
How was your weekend?  
A little on the 'cool' side here in Ohio ... guess that's to be expected this time of year.

Last week I needed to make a variety of cards for my mom and so as not to overwhelm you, I've saved a few to share with you from time to time.  Here are four of those cards which I created using images from the Crafty Secrets - Heartwarming Vintage Collection, Creative Scraps called 'Birds & Blossoms'.  There are several other Creative Scraps themes so be sure to pop over and take a peek.  This is a fabulous way to create fast & easy cards and the images are all so beautiful.

AND ... if you pop on over to Crafty Vintage Girl right now, you will find all 17 different Creative Scraps on SALE ... each under $2.00!  So many beautiful images to create with.

Hope your week is off to a wonderful start!  The skies have cleared up ... it's a cool (and very comfortable) 67 degrees (F) so I think I'll head outside to give hubby a hand cleaning out the garage!
