Pineapples, a Cupcake, Doggy Paws & some news...

Hello and welcome back to my little crafty corner of blogland!
Today I'm sharing 3 FUN cards that were fairly quick to make with the help of multiple cutting dies and some colorful papers!  I tend to go overbaord on embellishments, but I've kept that at a minimal here to best showcase the themes of the Pineapples, Cupcake and Doggy Paws!
