This a version of the Mini flag card we did back at Mother's Day . So I tweaked it and turned it into a Mini Flag Scrap Card. I found this awesome picture I couldn't believe the colors in our shirts were the exact right color and the sizing of the picture was perfect. So I had to figure out how to make this into an oval. So I drew pencils marks around the outside of the encompassed area I wanted inside the oval die cut( the large oval) kept the picture face up and put it on the oval die positioning it just so I would get as much of the main focal point of the picture in their as I could. I think I did pretty good. I just nipped a tad of my DH's(Darling Husband talk in Blog land) head. But overall I am thrilled with this card.

I actually gave it to my husband to get a masculine reaction and I could tell he was really touched right before I repossed it out of his hot little hands. LOL
I absolutely had to add this card to my stamp camp and I though wow we will really run behind w e have so much to do but no matter what I throw at
I am so humbled by the creativity of my group and I would love to here your comments on this post! Comments really make all the hard work of posting worth while!

Deb Brown and Sandra are relaxing making their cards washing away the weeks stress!

Sandra brought in her card for the challenge I sent out. We made these Movers and shakers oval magnet cards last week at class. I challenges everyone to go home and make their own version of the card and she did awesome even using a different magnet, the heart.
Great job, Sandra! It looks very elegant!

Her little heart floating up are from the 3 heart punch and the sentiment is from the NEW set "Just Believe"
