Flowers, version I

Good Day! Today's card is one that has been on my list for a few weeks. Seriously, am I the only one that makes a list of cards to create? I usually make a list based on some inspiration/new produce or technique I want to try. I am working on my "flower" list. Since there are so many new flower techniques, I wanted to try them all. This flower is randomly coordinated (is that an oxymoron?) collection of purple scrap paper, cut in scallops/circles. I sprayed each with a little water, crinkled and let dry for a textured appearance. I also found a scrap of Anna Giffin ribbon in my stash. It folds so beautifully.

An Apple a Day

Hello! Well, it has been a crazy, busy month. School activities, work, baseball and LaCrosse seasons are almost over...which means more time for crafting! OYE! So, let's get on with the show.

Today's card was inspired/ripped off from Chupa's cute apple card. I thought this was perfect for my kid's teachers appreciations, one in red and one in greed. Still using up some of my favorite Cosmo Cricket Early Bird paper. Delicious!
