It's Tuesday night and the excitement mounts as I eagerly await tomorrows Belli Challenge. To keep myself in stamping and card making form I did make several cards today. I'm still working on cards for our quilt boutique in April and I needed a few to send myself.

Fortunately no one I know is sick right now, but I got a new Lockhart stamp last week and wanted to use it.....I thought it was so cute....a little tissue box. Even though no one is sick right now I know that someone is bound to get the sniffles soon; what with pollen and allergy season bearing done on us as winter tries to leave to make room for spring.

The XX's are from a Gel-i-tin set I purchased in KC at last summers Flybaby gathering. The sentiments from Inkadinkadoo.

In making this card I got to pull out some tools that I really like but haven't been put to much use lately...they were today and you will see the fruits of their labors in other posts this week. I used my circle and scalloped circle SU punches and one of my favorite tools of all time....the perfect layers tool. I never have figured out why SU retired this tool. It makes getting nice layers of many different widths so easy! I'm so glad I got one before they went bye bye!

So that's it for today.....now to bed so I can get up bright and early and see what Chris and the Belli DT has for us tomorrow.

Very cute card!

I agree about the perfect layers- one of my favorite tools ever. I use it all the time. I got mine from QVC which still sells them.

Very cute! Love your layout and the x's look like cross-stitching! I love this little stamp, I'm going to have to get it someday!
