A New Card, Guest Cards and more Blog candy photos....

Three quick things to share today, Here's a quick card I made on a visit to Archiver 's.  Sad to see this store closing down. I guess over the last year I saw it coming as they had moved both their stores in Austin and after moving, immediately closed the second store.  The other store was located out of town, in a location that I could not access anymore.  But on a visit with a friend, I did get to make this cute card:
Second, here is couple of fun cards that I have gotten in the mail, This beautiful card from my Godmother Jan, this was a card she made from the stamp set that I gave her for Christmas:

The Second is a couple of cards from Mary K of Scrapbook Place:
And this fun card was for my Birthday, sent to me from Holly of Squigglefly, using an
image from Squigglefly!
