Thank You

Hello! I actually made a daisy card without using yellow and black!! I like how it turned out too. The double scallop edge at the bottom wasn't planed but I messed up on the sentiment the first time and had to find a way to fix it. Sometimes mistakes can be good things, I might do it on purpose next time! Thanks for stopping by.

Hello!! I've noticed alot of Christmas in July challenges going on and thought I'd give it a go. It'll be here before we know it, the older I get the faster time seems to fly!! I dug into my small stash of Pink Piroutte that I had been hoarding. I'm so glad that SU brought that color back!! I embossed my poinsettia with gold embossing powder and cut it out. It is colored with copic markers and raised up with pop dots. The white panel has been sprayed with Shimmerz. I Love how this turned out! Thanks for stopping by, I Love reading your comments!!

Autumn Blessings

Hello! I know it's a bit early for fall cards but it will be here before we know it! The Just Us Girls Challenge was a sketch this week. The sponser of this weeks challenge is Justrite stamps and if you use Justrite stamps you get entered in a bonus drawing as well! Since I don't have any circle shaped Justrite stamps I used the center of one of the Autumn Blessings oval stamps and made my own! I really enjoy making Fall cards! Sorry for the darker photo, I was running out of daylight and time for the challenge! I may retake the photo tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!

Hello! Hope you are keeping cool where you are, it has been a VERY Hot & Humid week here. So thankful for central air!! Today's card is very simple and elegant. I'm really liking the new Quickutz embossing folder that I picked up. The flower was stamped twice and the center cut out and poped up. The butterfly was embossed and cut out also. I think a set of these cards with different sentiments would make a nice gift. Thanks for stopping by and stay cool!
