Today more snow and cold so I picked up and organized my craft room and made a couple cards to share with you today. I'm also trying to finish up my valentine's so maybe I'll be back a couple times today with more to share - crossing my fingers :o)
Card #1: I started this card about a week ago but finally got around to finishing it.
No particular person in mind yet for this card - just for my stash. Finished card size is 5 1/2" square.
Here it is - hope you like it!
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
The Alphabet Challenge - Z for zesty colours.
They want to see orange, lime and lemon colors.
Orange is one of my favorite "happy" colors, so I couldn't resist.
My Time to Craft Challenge #234 - Buttons & Bows (use at least 3 buttons and a bow)
and Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes (optional shaped card).
Card #2: While I was cleaning out my craft room I came across a big stack of magazine pages that I had torn out of card and scrapbooking magazines with photos of layouts or cards I really liked.
This is a direct and unabashed CASE of a card shown in an advertisement for Doodlebug Designs on the back page of the Feb 2011 Creating Keepsakes magazine.
My flowers are different shaped and I used a different sentiment to make it my own.
Really love how this one turned out. Take a look:
Can you see why I saved this? Just way too sweet and a great way to use up a stash of buttons. It says "thinking of you" but I think I'll use it for a valentine card since the colors are just perfect for that. Might be fun to try with hearts and buttons instead of flowers. Hmmm... might have to see if I can try that next.
I'm entering Card #2 in Sweet Stampin' Challenge "Sentiments Only"
That's it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today. Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
