Hi there, hope you're having a fabulous day today, I know I am here in Florida.

Here are a couple of cards.  The Bridal Shower card was cased from Leigh Penner of  "To The Full", thanks Leigh for a delightful shower card very creative.
I loved her idea of the hearts on dotted lines as if it's raining "love". The adorable umbrella was cut by my daughter on her Silhouette, so cute isn't it?

These two birthday cards were fun to make.  The yummy looking cake stamp and die is from Papertrey Ink.  Didn't get my blueberries quite lined up, but think they still look adorable.
I tied a length of white twine around the lower portion of the card and tied with a bow before adhering the scallop gingham paper at the top.

The other birthday card which I made from a paint color sample from Home Depot, has been sitting on my desk for quite a while and I finally decided to do something with it.
I combined it with Papertrey Ink's "Ombre Stripes" pattern paper.  Isn't it funny how the paint chip lined up with the DSP lines, well most of them anyhow.  Topped it off with a circle of gold and a HB sentiment. Should have thought to add some paper piercing to the bottom of the chevron cut before gluing it down, next time!

Thanks for peeking at my blog.

Awesome cards, Mom! You know I love the first two and the third one--how cool! What a great idea to use the paint chip as a banner. Looks great with that patterened paper!

WOWZER WOWZER WOWZER!!! You have been a BUSY little girl in April!!! You crack me up.... just like me. One post here, one post there.........then BAM! Everyday! No wonder you thought I was MIA.
Well first.... these three cards are ADORABLE!
LOVE how the umbrella came out. In fact... I might be using this as a CASE! for next class. I have several PTI umbrella dies... so this could be a slam dunk! You know how it is... can't think HOW to use something, even though you love it.???
The cake card is so cute. I've been playing around with mine too. I've made a few I like. I DO love how you tied the twine under the DSP trim... reminds me of a canopy on a bakery window! right?
The paint strip card is just genious!!! How clever is that? and what a great way to use the umbre DSP papers... guess what I'll be picking up in the stores!
Great cards all around.
