A Beautiful Friendship

One of my favorite papers from the Seasonal Expressions 1 is the I Heart Us Collection.  The bright bold rainbow stripe and the multi colored polka dot make my heart swoon!

I couldn’t wait to put together this fun card to celebrate a beautiful friendship.  Sometimes I think we spend time chatting and talking with our friends, but don’t really let them know how much we appreciate them.

Leave me a comment with who you’d send this card to and why!

Tea for Color Dare #294

It’s Friday again…hard to believe that this is the last Color Dare for the month of May and that means it’s Tic Tac Toe week!!!

No automatic alt text available.

Tic Tac Toe gives you the choice of picking your own colors.  You MUST use and identify the three colors in a row of your choice; however any or all other colors from the Challenge Board may be included.

It was a really tough decision, but I finally chose the first vertical row – Sapphire, White Daisy & Bashful – since I used a PML card from the Beautiful Friendship paper packet there’s a little Smoothie, Heather and Canary included as well.

Rarely do I use the 4X6 cards in their entirety – it means I have to make a 5X7 card which is rare for me (gives me too much space to write on inside) but having a British maternal grandfather and my mom’s china teacups I had a fondness for this particular PML card. It’s hard to see in the photo, but the centers of the Smoothie flowers are filled with bitty sparkles.

Three Little Cupcakes – Color Dare #293

It’s Friday…time for another Color Dare!

This week the Color My Heart Color Dare Design Team is creating with the colors:  Canary, Sapphire & Silver.

You might feel a theme happening with my Color Dare Challenges this month.  I really love the Festive Birthday stamp set and I can NEVER have enough birthday cards.  It’s been fun challenging myself to use the same stamp set but in totally different ways.

I hope you’ll take some time to create with us at the Color My Heart Color Dare , you can click HERE for the details of the Color My Heart Color Dare.

Thanks so much for stopping by…I hope you enjoyed my artwork and that you’ll take a minute to visit the other Design Team Members Blogs too!

One Pattern Four Ways

It’s no secret I’m crazy in love with the Make It From Your Heart pattern books and Volume 4 is no exception.  I reach for these books every time I need a little inspiration and a good pattern!

When you use one of the patterns you can simply rotate it 90 degrees in either direction and come up with a total of 4 magnificent patterns!

Each of my cards is made with the same pattern and papers from the Beautiful Friendship but they all have such a different look.

I appreciate you stopping by – I hope you’ll consider trying one of the Make It From Your Heart patterns on your next card making adventure.
