As promised, I am back with more and a sale!

I mentioned I had more cards to share yesterday and I am trying to make good on my promises. :-)
Again a card for a couple of challenges.
First is Paper Popsicles. The monthly theme is cards and the second challenge is to make a thank you card with a flower. I used some scraps from The Shaker Box's February card kit. I was a guest designer and really loved the kit Linda created. She selected the chic Amy Butler papers and some fun embellishments that included the velvet ribbon on this card. If you enjoy card making, check out her kits. Each month Linda chooses a theme such as friendship, Easter, Mother's day, etc. The kits come with pre cut card stock, ribbons, brads, buttons, stamps, envelopes, and pictures with directions to make 6 cards that were created by her designers.. Of course there is enough product to create even more cards using your own designs. The kits are a total value! Be sure to check out the online store and sign up for the community. Everyone is extremely friendly and it's a laid back drama free place to find inspiration, friendship, and shop. Right now Linda has a 15% off $10 orders. Use coupon code 2NAE5D to receive 15% off all orders $10.00 (excludes digi items and kits).Good through 04/30/09.

I used Card Patterns sketch #9. One reason I love this blog is because there is an eclectic mix of card makers that contribute their work. Sometimes I feel like I am in rut and find my work stagnant. My fiancee says he can pick my work out amongst others. Huh? Is that bad? He said it's my style. Hmmm. Okay, so this site has some really funky and fresh, mixed in with a few vintage and shabby, along with simple and cute cards. Lots of styles to inspire.


I used a Velcro dot to close this card.


Here's the inside of the card lying flat.



The next card is for Inspirational Card Sketches #11. Have you ever started a card and thought I just don't know? I am not having any good ideas. Then suddenly you start adding items and decide you need to stop! Yet you are not sure if you like it? That's how I am about this card. Definitely on the fence.
Again I am embracing the white space idea. This card uses Amy Butler papers, chipboard letters, and die cut. The buttons, velvet ribbon, and pom pom trim are from craft supply.



Okay, that's it for me today. I have to finish a recipe book for my Mom. I had no motivation to work on these 12x12 books but, one is done and I am finishing the second up today for sure. What a great relief it will be to hand these over. An achievement if you will.
Okay, enough from me.
Thanks for coming by! Have a wonderful Wednesday!
