my husband was sweet enough and observant enough to understand just how badly mama needed a Sunday nap today---so, he took Sierra outside to entertain while I snoozed. Sweet, huh? Since I owe him now, I told him to name a cookie...any cookie...and I'd make him a bunch----PLUS I didn't tell you what he brought home for my birthday---THIS beautiful little gem and in my very favorite color too---he is so thoughtful---I have to be very careful what hints I drop around him because he listens and delivers---kind of makes me feel guilty---so I don't say much :) Oatmeal Raisin it is for the day and that's what is in my oven right now----mmmmm...love the smell of those little bundles baking. So, while they bake I thought I'd come chat for a minute.
Here are a couple of cards using some tools from Provo Craft.
The first card uses THIS 2x2 circle die for the posies, and THIS Olivia alphabet die for the sentiment. Such a fun card---I added Making Memories velvet brads and Kaisercraft adhesive pearls for the centers along with sheet music for stems and a bit of glitter of course. The paper is from Graphic 45, Basic Grey, Sassafras lass and 7gypsies.
On this next card, I used THIS Olivia alphabet die for the tiny flowers and the sentiment, THIS 2x6 flowers die to cut the large flower from felt, and THIS Perfectly Paisley embossing folder. The paper is from Basic Grey, the jewels and glitter from Doodlebug (they have the most wonderful glitter---it coats so well), the wide ribbon from SEI, and the flowers are from Imaginisce, Prima, and the craft store.
I'll be back tomorrow with another picture of what's being added to the goodie pot for my SKETCH CHALLENGE. I love watching what has been created---it truly is so much fun for me and I thank you all for sharing your talent and inspiration with all of us! Keep them coming---plenty of time left still.
Happy Sunday everyone!
