New stuff

I am asking for ideas - reactions - opinions.  I just received an order through Create and Craft, a new tv series of infomercials - several hours a day - on satellite tv, etc., as well as on line.  One of the items I ordered was a set including tons of card fronts, inserts with verses, die cuts, etc.  Has any one else seen these or used them?  I will have enough for hundreds of cards - I know I will tire of them before I get to the end - but there are lots of possibilities.  I think I will have a chance to make easy cards for a lot of veterans!  This is from a packet called Lovely in lace.  The floral panel is pinched from the lacy border - though I trimmed a sliver in order to show the burgundy bg for contrast.  Added_  Cheery Lynn hummingbirds, and a sentiment by Elizabeth. I added glitter on the floral centers as well as the eyes of the birds.   I used a leafy embossing folder by Sizzix for the card base which is burgundy shimmery cs.  I used one of the birthday sentiment sheets from my new pack - cut 5.5 x 11, folded and attached to create a double layer on the inside of the card.
