Some Favorite Cards

I do not typically post "favorites" but I have been blurfing this evening (yeah who are we kidding, it is 2:55 but WOWZA!!! There are some great posts out there Lately so I am going to show you some of my favorites.

This first one I actually found a while ago and I fell in LOVE! I love the simplicity of the design, yet it really highlighted a beautiful flower and there fore drawing you eye to the sentiment. FAB!! I have to admit I have CASED this card in 3 different colors but can not post my results as I am waiting for my delicious Dark Chocolate Card stock from PTI to mount it on. ( I even used faux ribbon to make my own plaid on one of them)

This card belongs to Alisha at Paper Prozac! Here are a couple more from her recent posts that are just as FANTASTIC!!

This beauty was created by Charlene from our very last Loonie Stampers Challenge. Is that not beautiful?!? I LOVE it and shall be casing soon. Thanks Char! :)

This card seriously CRACKED ME UP. I love it and I would not hesitate to give a card like this to any of my BFF'S. Go check out Regan's Blog for more great cards and scrapbook layouts!

Deanna needed some thank you notes and made a few of these. They take very little tine but still come jam packed with the personal touch. Great job Dee, these cards are super cute! (note to self: self, buy a flower punch like that)

Now the next two cards came from Maria's Blog. She really has some wonderful cards to view on her blog. I really enjoyed these ones. The first one is made of NEW Papertrey Ink Designer pattern paper called Chocolate Remix. It has 3 patterns out of 6 that perfectly coordinate with three of their stamp sets. HOW GENIUS!! I really like how Maria used some of the stamps from this coordinated paper and stamps to stamp some extra color into the centers of the flowers on the paper. Absolutely love it.

This one is made from the "In Colors" that are almost "out" from Stampin' Up! and also the butterfly from the garden whimsy set. That set was the first set I bought wen they debuted the spring/summer catty. I love how the butterflies look dancing across the top of the card.

Well that is it for me today but I should be able to post some of the stuff I have been working on soon. I have a business meeting this afternoon but hope to still get in some stamping time. I also may have to bring McKayla (my 4 Y/O) to the doctor as she seems to have been bitten by something on her ankle and her ankle is now all puffed up. She says it doesn't hurt but kinda itchy and you can see a small white bump which I can only assume is where the possible 8 legged creepy took a nibble. YUCK! I will keep ya updated on that!
Have a happy Sunday!!


  1. I'm sooo feelin' the love down here. Thanks for that. And I hope it wasn't that hairy, scary laundry room spider that 'nibbled' McKayla! Eeeek!
