It seems like forever since I've had the time and energy to go into my loft and craft. Robyn's blog hop was just what I needed to get me off by butt! Ha ha! This was a fun card as I used the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge and just cut out several images. I will post the rest of the cards I made (total of 6, all different sayings, but used the same paper and the same idea) at the end of this message. I have to say that I LOVE glue dots! They are perfect to use when I'm layering images such as this flower. I also "spritzed" the petals and leaves and dried them with my embossing gun. I curled the leaves and petals with a pen giving them a little more dimension. Not sure if you can see, but I also used the Cuttlebug to dry emboss the white background paper. I love Really Reasonable Ribbon and when it came on Thursday, I knew I'd be using it all up. I love purple and this assortment is just beautiful! So I glad I joined that club as I get a great little package every month. The Sentiment is Robyn's and it fits so well with the image. I finished it off with 3 rhinestones. When I go into Michael's I really go through the $1 bins and find most of my embellishments for a buck! When the grandkids visit they love to use them too and I can be generous when I only spent a buck!
I hope you are enjoying the hop! just think of the great cardio workout we are all getting! I love comments and plan to stay a while and look around. Join in on the fun!
If you've followed my blog before, you know I make multiple cards at a time. I figure if I'm going to figure out the colors and what I'm going to do, I can make several cards at a time. If you look closely you will see they all look similiar but have different wording. I needed a get well but wanted it to look bright! I love spring and will send these out to my BFF's. I never have enough birthday cards and am always glad to have a stash to go to when I need a BD or other card in a hurry! I hope you enjoyed my post!
