Floral Thanks

Today seems like a flower kind of day. It could be that Mother's Day is just around the corner, or maybe I'm just falling in love with my stash flowers and flower stamps lately. Whatever it is, I give in and look forward to many floral cards in the future.

Thanks for reading!

Happy Fathers' Day Frog Prince

I just couldn't resist a fun fathers' day card with a frog and some fun geometric paper. I've had this patterned paper in my stash for ages and kept meaning to use it. I think it worked out pretty great on this card.

Best wishes

Back to simplicity today with a sticker, some washi and a sentiment. Sometime life gets really busy and it's nice to have a few simple cards on hand. And when they use up some stash goodies? Even more rewarding!

My Superhero

We all have that superhero guy in our lives that deserves to be celebrated, and what a better way than with a fun and simple little card?! I had a lot of fun with this card, choosing the perfect paper and colors. I really like how the primary colors worked and pulled that heroic look together.

A cup of warmth

One of my dear friends is down with the flu, so I thought I'd send a little cheer-me-up card with a cute teacup sticker and some well-wishes. I kept it really simple and flat so it's quick to mail and (hopefully) even quicker to reach her and make her smile.

Dainty Congrats

I don't really make vintage cards, but there's something about that soft and dainty look that I just can't resist. So, I thought I'd try with this sweet little cup and some pretty patterned paper. I really like the sage green and the bright pop of pink with cream as a palette and plan to use it again. I'm also digging this textured cardstock from Bazzill. It's not heavy enough to use as a base, but it's really fun as a layering piece.

Coffee Love

Good days definitely start with coffee -especially Mondays when it's time to get back to the grind. I'm not a fan of Mondays, but I am always happy to sip my morning cup of coffee.

Birthday Chick

I never seem to run out of a need for birthday cards - and my card stash has been running dangerously low. So, I thought I'd knock out a birthday card and make use of a starry embossing folder. Quick and simple, but a festive little creation.

Watercolor Cup

Since I did 3 seasons already, I wanted to round things off with a summer card - except, I wasn't really feeling the summer/beach mood. So, I did the next best thing and made a watercolor card. It is entirely too messy and my watercoloring needs heck of a lot more practice, but it's a finished card.

Autumn Thanks

I think we're catching another theme here, as we had spring, winter and now we're onto an autumn card. I have no particular reason for making an autumn card, aside from spying a cure paper and some leaf puffy stickers I really wanted to use. Making use of my stash does keep me happy!
