I have a cased card to show you today... I saw this card on a blog a few days ago and loved the idea! You may see the cased card here - http://www.stetlerarts.blogspot.com/
Of course, I made the design my own by changing the colors and DSP ...

The CS is cut at 4.25 X 11 inches; I used three punches: a retired one for the mini flowers; two current ones - Fancy Flower Extra Large, the leaves are the wings from the Two-Step Bird punch. The flower is popped in the center of the card. The outer sentiment  "Hello ..." is from the set Happy Greetings found in the Summer Mini. Gotta have a little bling - rhinestones! :)

Here you can see the popped flower....

and a simple inside --- with a sentiment from Herb Expressions stamp set

Enjoy your day - thanks for stopping by!

Tangerine Tango Embossing -

It's about time isn't it? I don't know where this week went! Are you enjoying the sunshine today? I was talking with someone this morning who said the forecast was 40% chance of rain for Saturday... I wondered why they don't say "60% chance of sunshine" - that sure would make the mood better, wouldn't it? :)

'Nuff said!
Here is my card for today.... I used the butterfly from Strength and Hope, the flowers and grass from Fabulous Florets. The butterfly and flower were embossed with the NEW colored embossing powder - Tangerine Tango! Had to add a little bling - pearls!

Here is the inside - lots of room to write an encouraging note to someone!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Enjoy the sun!
Have a great weekend!
Blessings and HUGS!

Scraps and Such...

Good Morning!
(Well, at least it is still morning as I write this! I don't know how the morning has gotten away from me so quickly!)

I decided to make a card this morning and I had a plan in my head as to how it would look.... let me tell you, this card is NOTHING like that plan! How does that happen? Does it ever happen to you?
First of all - my craft table is such a "mess" I guess I just picked from what was already in front of me instead of cleaning and planning!

Here is a picture I took right after I finished the card ... does your table ever get like this?

Here is the card I made... using DSP from the retired Occasions Mini ... I versamarked the large flower from the Fabulous Floret set (Summer Mini) on the Pink Pirouette CS; popped a sentiment from the set "Happy Greetings" (Summer Mini); Used the Fancy Flower punch to punch out the sentiment; Matted all with River Rock CS...
Now off to clean that table so I can get down to serious business :)
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a good one!
Blessings and HUGS!

"Flower Garden"

Hi All!

A quick post for today as I have a pedicure planned for this afternoon ... and family arriving by supper time! :) Making a fish chowder for them! Better get on with it, aye?

Here is my card for today... using the "flower garden embossing folder". I inked it a bit to make it stand out.

Good Morning everyone!
And a fabulous day it is!

Here is my card for today! Made with "Fabulous Florets" from the Summer Mini! I think this has to be a strong contender for my "favorties" list! So - settle in ... I will be making more cards using this same set over the next few days! I have family coming on Friday so there will be very little stampin' time on the weekend.... Of course, Madi always wants to make a card or two ---- girl after my own heart! :)

I used the Scor-Pal on the white background ... scored a frame around the whole piece ... hope you can make that out. Then I inked the flower and sentiment with Cherry Cobbler ink, and the green is Pear Pizzazz - OH! and more rhinestones! :)

 Here is a view of the inside...

Thanks for stopping by today! I just took Teddie-boy to the groomers. If he lets me take a picture of him on his return I'll post it later!
Have a great day!
Blessings and HUGS!

We All Need A "Touch of Kindness" ...

Good morning everyone!
What a beautiful day this is going to be!
Soooooooooooo  good to see Mr. Sunshine!
For all you Canadians out there - I trust you will exercise your right and privilege to vote today! I'm on my way there very soon!

But First - here is another card using the Scallop and Doily Triple Layer Punches ... The sentiment is from the stamp set "Touch Of Kindness" which is found in the Summer Mini - which went LIVE yesterday!
Ummmmm - I've been using a lot of rhinestones lately.... wonder what that's all about!

Here is a close up of the "flower head" ...

Close up of the sentiment ...
 and -
the inside....
Have a wonderful day ....
Keep a smile in your heart and on your face - no matter the outcome of todays election.
God is in control... we're not.
