Thank You Card and Candy You Should Know About

Its Time..........
I finally found the time to put up a new post up. Its sure been a while but things have been very busy lately. So...for this card I got my inspiration from Diana over at DL.ART. I love all the wonderful challenges shes having and plus she's keeping me on my toes to make Thank You cards that I need to send out every now and then.
I think this card turned out nice. The big heart was stamped with a Stampin' Up stamps set I have called Polka Dot Punches Stamp Set. The set is beautiful and I love using it. The black paper was embossed on my friend Regena's Cuttelbug (I so have to get me one of those).
Anyway not much more to say except that here's my card....

Thankful Tuesday

So DL.ART is having yet another challenge that ends tomorrow and since its been a while since I put up a post I decided that I should put up a short one now. Its been a long week for me and I just haven't found the time so hopefully I'll be able to get a proper and longer post up next week.
I attacked my scraps drawer and managed to use up quite a few making this card. I printed out the rose pics a long time ago and finally found a way to use them. Construction that's something you don't see everyday yet I used up quite a bit that I had lying around. I know this card is straying far from what I usually make but hey I have to experiment and see what I like best. I have to admit though that this isn't what I would choose. Anyway here's my card...
I'm entering this card into the current Challenge:

  1. DL.ART - Thankful Tuesday (Thank you card using scraps)

So I'm still working on those Thank You cards that I have to send out. I already sent some out but its always good to have some on hand. Flowers are from Fred She Said and my friend Regena embossed me some paper, she also let me borrow a leaves punch that I used (kinda hard to see cause they are under the flowers. My Aunt Maryann Punched out the big butterflies for me and the smaller butterflies were punched out with a fiskars punch that I got on Used Winnipeg for just $2. Decide to go with using my favorite colors, Black and Green. I love how it turned out, would never have guessed that it would make a cool color combo as well. So here it is....

My First Card Of 2012

Its only the second day of 2012 and already I'm making cards. I got my motivations from Diana over at DL.ART. Diana had a Blogaversary blog hop going on from Jan 1 to Jan 2. On the hop we were supposed to find 4 secret words of items that are supposed to be used on your cards. Well I found all the words. At first I wasn't sure about the color combination but I like it a lot. I think it turned out great. My sister Jessica has a birthday on the 22nd and I though why not make it a B-Day card and send it to her. Hopefully she'll like it.
The mulberry roses come from Diana over at Moshie's Moments. I won some blog candy from here last year and these beauties were included. I love them Diana, Thanks! I go the number 17 from a Cricut cartridge called "Cherry Limeade". The sentiment comes from Sentiment's 4 You. My friend Regena offered to emboss the pink paper for me, its kinda hard to see the effect but its there and I have to say the card looks more beautiful in person. I got the idea of the flower in Tilda's hand from Jacque. She has such fabulous inspirational ideas. Makes the images looks even more real. LOVE IT!
So here's my card......Finally!
I would like to enter the card into the following challenges:
  1. Incy Wincy Card Challenges - Anything Goes
  2. The Secret Crafter - Anything Goes
  3. Top Tip Tuesday's - Anything Goes
  4. Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
