Thinking Of You - Butterfly

Hi Everyone: The weather seems to be getting worse. It is snowing. I like warm weather. I'm sure some of you people like snow and cold weather, I'm just not one of them. Who likes to go snow skiing and snow boarding?

Todays card is on Very Vanilla and Daffodile Delight card Stock. I used Perfect Plum, Raspberry Ripple and Old Olive Card Stock for the banners. Each one is stamped with a Bloomin Marvelous stamp and embossed with White Embossing Powder. The banners were cut with Hearts A Flutter Framlits. Each banner is attached with a White Brad. The saying is from You Are Loved stamp set. I tied a Raspberry Ripple 3/8" Satin Stitched Ribbon around the card. I attached a bow to the ribbon with a White Brad.

Tile Card

Hi Everyone. Sorry I didn't post anything yesterday. I was sick and spent most of the day in bed. Feeling better today. The weather is sure crappy today. Ice and snow mix - yuck and really cold.

I got the idea for today's card from Frenchie, The base is Tangerine Tango Card Stock. Layered with Pacific Point and Whisper White Card Stock. The tiles are Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper that are embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. The flower is Pacific Point and Tangerine Tango Card Stock punched with Boho Blossoms and Itty Bitty Shapes punches with a natural white brad in the center. The stamp is from Kindness Matters stamp set. I tied a Tangerine Tango ribbon from the Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack.

Hi Everyone:

I went to church this morning and had a wonderful time. Got to see all my friends. I almost didn't make it because there was ice on the driveway and I almost fell down when I went outside to warm up the car. Other than that, having a wonderful day making cards. What kind of fun are you doing today?

I have two cards for you today. It seems everyone is making Faux Patina cards. Well I had to give it a try and this is what I came up with. Hope you like them.

Hello Everyone:

Woo Hoo - Weekend. I slept late this morning, it was great. I am going to craft all day. Such fun. Oh What A Wonderful Day - Woo Hoo.  So how are you going to spend the day?

Today's card is a Birthday card. The base is Rich Razzleberry Card Stock.I layered Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper and Old Olive on the base. I embossed the Old Olive Card Stock with the Vine Street embossing folder. I covered the seam with Summer Starfruit Satin Stitched Ribbon. I layered Naturals White Card Stock on top of Rich Razzleberry Card Stock with Brights Designer Series Paper on top of that.  The Bird and leaves were stamped with Blissful Bird stamp set with Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry Ink. They were punched with the Bird Builder Punch. I used Rasberry Ripple Satin Stitched Ribbon on the top layer of the card. The flowers were punched in Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight Card Stock using the Boho Blossoms punch and Itty Bitty Shapes Punch embellished with Pearl Jewels. The Happy Birthday is stamped with From My Heart stamp set.
