With Sympathy

Oh my, sorry I have posted in a while. I had all of the best intentions of submitting my card to the Flourishes, LLC " Timeless Tuesday challenge #216, but, the week just got away from me. So, better late than never, to share my card. 

The theme was " frame it", so I took the challenge to make a frame around my daffodil image. This was actually a first for me to do this with my dies. I had been meaning to try this for some time, and well, thanks to Flourishes for the challenge, it got me motivated. I love the look and I am sure you will see in on more of my cards.

I used the Daffodil stamp from the Calendar Set 1 from Flourishes,llc for my image. My sentiment is from the Stampendous set Orchid Greetings. The frame die is from Spellbinders and the banner/pendant is from Hero Arts. 

The paper that I used for the card is from We R Memory Keepers Simply Spring 6x6 paper pad. I just love this paper.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a fantastic day.

Easter Blessings

Just popping in to post the Easter card that I sent to my daughter and son-in-law. Very simple, but fun.
 ( I made a card using the same paper and washi for the Great Impressions blog site and didn't want to post this until their post was up.)
 I am trying to use all those "forgotten" stamps and paper that takes up space in my craft area. This image stamp is one of those dollar wood stamps from Michael's craft store. The sentiment is an old retired stamp from Close to My Heart. I used a bit of washi tape, some sewing and a few buttons and paper from Close to My Heart.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a beautiful day.

Just a piece of whatever

I've been doodling and playing with stamps and came up with this fun piece of whatever.

I  had some left over pieces of cardstock that had shapes cut out, so I used them as a stencil for my circle and ovals.
 Then I used a few stamps sets from MME that I got for Christmas that couldn't wait to ink. 
 I did some white embossing, regular stamping and a lot of doodling. I thought the circles looked like Ladybugs, hehe.
I think this is just my fun piece and I will use it on my kitchen photo board for a splash of color in the summer. Then, I may just pop it into my scrapbook for safe keeping. 

I thought that I should have done this in my mixed media journal, but then I couldn't use it for a summer decoration. 

Have you ever just created a "FUN" piece of art work? 
Thanks for stopping by.
