Wednesday Thoughts

Hey there! It's Wednesday and I have a few items to share today.  We are experiencing absolutely beautiful weather here in Virginia.  I would say well deserved after an earthquake and tropical storm in one week.  My favorite part of the week thus far has been driving to work while listening to Cowboy Mouth as loud as I want with the windows down.  Instant dryer for my hair!  :-)

Here's a card made for Penny's latest challenge which is based on this photo.  That's Glitterbabe's, Cloumbian Daisy digi image you see floating atop the bright papers.  I used more of that great Cooredination's cardstock I mentioned earlier this week.  I distressed the edges to give a softer appeal with a nail file.  The pattern papers are Lush(polka dot) and TPC (Boho Blooms).  I adore my SP& Company bold sentiment set as you can tell because I used it again for this card today.  :-)
Challenges I would like to enter this card into:

I was in a envelope swap recently hosted by Teresa and my partner, Shawn, sent me these items:

For this swap you send 1 partner a regular size (3 5/8 x 6 1/2 white) mailing envelope filled with mystery items!

And with the contents of the envelope you receive from your swap partner, you must incorporate that into making a project!
Think ATC-Tag-Bookmark-Postcard,Alter a Mini Book,Journal Page etc.

Thank you Shawn for a great variety of items!  Here's  a card I made for this week's Crafty Creations using three or ore punches/die cuts:
and a tag:

This swap was a lot of fun!

Okay, off to work I go!  Have a great day! 



Beautiful tag! I just love the blue sunrays around your image. Vintage is one style I just adore! Job well done my dear. :)Peggy


These are all awesome!!! Love that beautiful Daisy. I've always wanted to incorporate scripted paper onto a card, but wasn't sure how. You did it fantasticly on your second card! And that adorable tag! Love all of these!!! :)


Love purple :) I love that tag on the bottom! Especially that little bird on it. So glad your weather is much better!

Being in New Jersey, we experienced the earthquake (totally surreal!) and hurricane in the same week, too. That was amazing, we never get that kinda weather here!

Your Columbian Daisy is colored so prettily, and I love those intense blue papers behind it.
