Friends Cherish

Here's another card that I've added to my Etsy shop. I love how this cute card came out. I wish I could remember the line of paper that I used, but I just can't seem to find it! If you recognize it, let me know then I can update my post (thanks)
The card uses plenty of dimensionals to pop up the front of the card to create a deep window for the verse. I used a pink colored pencil to faux stitch around the edges of the designer paper. And aren't those the cutest little crocheted flowers!?

Thanks for stopping in today :-)

A Romantic Card

This card is absolutely gorgeous! If I hadn't already showed it to my husband, I would have put it in an envelope to give to him.
First off, the lace is fabulous! Second, I made my own shape using Cricuts Design Studio, then after all that excitement I made the cute little flowers using white tissue paper. As you can see, I changed the color a bit.

This has got to be one of the prettiest cards I've made. I hope you like it tooo!

Christmas in July?

Here are a couple of Christmas cards that I created. I didn't think I'd like making them so early, but these came out so nice that I will probably continue making more. The first card uses a page from the Wonderful Winter paper pack from My Mind's Eye, Spellbinders Labels 4, SU button die, and some twine. I printed the Merry Christmas on my computer using Kingthings Christmas font that you can find for free here.
The next card was quite easy. I used a beautiful page from Webster's Pages, gold trim from Jolee, Gold embossing powder, Gold leafing pen and the Season's Greetings stamp from Michael's dollar bin that I bought last year. It came out so elegant.

With a cherry on top

Here's a card that fits right in to a challenge that Sarah Martina Parker has on her blog.
Sarah wanted fruit to be used. Cherries are available in quantity right now and I just love to see them at our local food store. I like seeing them sitting in my refrigerator even more. So yummy!!
