    Oops! My little girl is crying in the background, and I accidentally didn't finish posting my comment before I clicked out.

    I love these cards!! Thanks for the link to the eagle clip art.

    I especially love that penny slider card with the car on it. I may have to use that idea for my nephew's 16th birthday this month.

    The paper I gave you is from ATD. (I'd never heard of it before, but Tuesday Morning has gotten in several of their products.)

    Wow! What a great group of cards - you have been busy. They are all wonderful - I agree masculine cards are tough. That Eagle clip art is beautiful.

    Thanks for linking my little tutorial :)
