Another Bouquet

Spring is teasing us with some warm sunny days and some cloudy, rainy, cold days, so want to surround myself with flowers. I made this card for my mom for Mothers' Day. I used my Build A Bouquet stamp set from Our Craft Lounge. I am having so much fun with this set (yes, my last post I also used this same set).  But look how different a color can make. I also used my cricut storybook cartridge for the vine and flourish. I am entering this in several challenges this week. Items I used to make this card: Cuttlebug swiss dot embossing folder, Cricut Storybook cartridge, a plain doily, CTMH Heavenly Blue and Grape Sherbet (discontinued colors) ink., misc papers from my stash, bling and a CLEAR stickpin from my friend Linda.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.

A Bit Bold

Springtime is here and I am all set for flowers. My daffodils are almost gone, few of my tulips are blooming and my paper flowers are bold. This card was made for several challenges OCL, CRU#29). I CASED the card for the sketch. The stamp set, Build a Bouquet,  is from Our Craft Lounge . The paper I used today is from  DCWV, the  Citrus matstack. Sometimes I just need a card for whatever, so I didn't put a sentiment on the front. Thanks for visiting.

Wee Henry Fishing

I made this cute easel card for my son, who loves to fish. This images is from Hambo Stamps and it is called Wee Henry Fishing. I love easel cards because they can be put on a shelf, desk, counter, whatever and enjoyed for a long time. On the inside, I have a nice poem and a letter that I wrote to my son about growing up, his accomplishments and loving who he has become as a young man. The sentiments are from CTMH stamp set. Thanks for taking a look.
