Two Cards


Well today I have two new cards to share with you and then I have to run and do errands before the thunderstorms hit. The first card is for Lauren's blog we had a inspiration piece to use that was aprons hanging on the line. I wanted to make a card that used those colors along with the feeling of being light and airy.You can see the inspiration piece here When I finished with my card I felt something was missing........it was layers I always have layers on my cards although I love simple cards I am a pile it on type person.
I was so honored that last week I was one of the top five picked by Lauren to be featured on her blog(nothing like a pat on the back to get the creative juices flowing) You can see that card here. the card recipe is Owl $1.99 stamp from Archivers, Punched Flowers from paper I stamped and some Autum leaves flourish stamps.

Mojo 99


Now this sketch has what I like a lot of layers I used all scrap paper out of my stash and a $1.00 stamp oh! I can't forget my CB folder. That's it a quick easy card thanks for stopping by.
