Flourishes are so fun to use and are fabulous for creating borders and frames! I LOVE how LISA and MARIA used the flourishes to do just that on their DT cards this month!! Have a look, and I’m sure you’ll agree on the gorgeous results they had! Be sure to click on the link’s to their blogs for more details. First up is LISA’s card with a beautifully created frame for her sentiment using our ACN FLOURISH 2… Look how she used flourishes to create butterflies and a lovely decorative corner on this card using the FREEBIE from MAY…still available for a short time here on my blog… MARIA has created a brilliant border frame for her JAR OF FLOWERS using FLOURISH 1… and I made my card to celebrate a wedding using FLOURISH 1 FLOURISH 1 Hearts FLOURISH 2 Thanks for stopping by, and have a creative day!!

I’ve made this card for Steve and Donna; friends of my MIL who have been so wonderful in helping her, my SIL and our family in every way possible since my MIL was diagnosed with terminal cancer. They have always been very good friends to my MIL, but they just went above and beyond if you know what I mean! I made this on Wednesday after seeing the FTTC69 (one layer card),and was going to drop it in the mail for them today. Sadly, I am up at 5:30 am, writing this post because we got the phone call in the night that my sweet Mother In Law has passed on. I could not go back to sleep of course, so I am up trying to clear my head (and keep busy at the same time…is that possible?) before my boys wake up. My husband, Des, has managed to get back to sleep (I hope). We will have to make plans to go to New Brunswick, but we have no details yet. When and how …
I’ve finally made a card for the Flourishes grand opening celebrations!! Spring for me, is definitely something to celebrate, as is Easter! I combined two challenges from Flourishes for this card: FLLCCEL2 (Celebration) and FLLCCEL5 (pink and green). I’ve colored the Flourishes Signs of Spring image with Copics and I’ve paper pieced the eggs in the basket with Basic Grey dp. The eggs and the frame are cut using my Cricut. Cricut Cartridges: Easter ltd ed. 2010, Accents and elements Copics: R01, R12, R20, R11, E31, G82, G40, YG93 Paper: Basic Grey Sultry dp, Stampin’ Up card stock in green, pink, and white Accessories: dew drops, May Arts lace ribbon Any questions? I’m always happy to answer them! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Cut it out and pop it up!! That’s the Crafty Creations Challenge I am setting out for you this week! We are using “Home Sweet Home”, a sweet image from The Digi Kitty on our DT cards this week. Here’s PEGGY’s sweet card: And my own card for the challenge… I stamped the circle/leaves from Unity Stamps as a background for this sweet little saltbox home from The Digi Kitty. The leaves are popped up, as are the bushes, roof and door of the house, using foam adhesive dots. The house is colored with Copics. The sentiment is from Flourishes Cottage Home set. Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you will join us in this week’s CRAFTY CREATIONS CHALLENGE.
I’ve made a gatefold card for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge and combined it with the Twisted Sisters challenge on SCS to use unconventional colors for a Christmas card. Well these colors are definitely not my usual choice for Christmas cards… I stamped the Flourishes wreath in rich cocoa and colored in the berries with Memento potter’s clay marker and copics YG95. I also added a little shimmer with my Sakura gel pen. The dp is from Crate paper. The card stock is groovy guava and soft sky, and the ribbon is American Crafts. Thanks for stopping by!
