World Card Making Day 2013!

Truly, no day is better!
Thanks for visiting my stop on the blog hop!


I didn't use an OWH sketch  because the background is just CAS, one blue and one white embossed mat. Then I added my favorite punch people from this year. I produced an entire army of minions in order to fulfill my goal of making tons of cards for kids for Operation Write Home this year. I thought I would try making a "thank you" card with them as well. Did you know that minions even have their own language? Google it! :)


Happy World Card Making Day! Be inspired! Go make some cards. Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, I'm with Kara and Susan! I've made some robots for kids I've been pleased with, but your minions rock! I LOVE them!

And, of course, just when i've sworn off buying new, you've cost me $$ & punch/cricut cartridge space because I so need to CASE these and add to the minion world takeover, lol.

I love this card. I have several minions myself. I made a minion card with three different minions for my daughter for her birthday. Of course I had to make six of each design. I was already cutting - right? I have to google that language because I too wanted to use the leftover for OWH kid's cards. I thought a good sentiment was 'Thanks a Minion' or 'Miss you a minion times a day'.
