Happy Birthday

Two more cards using the Clean & Simple sketches from last weeks and this week. I thought the gift bags of cards that I am making up for my church could use a couple of birthday cards. I have kept these both pretty clean and simple for me, no distressing...*grin*. On the pink card I used some of my all time favorite pink polka dotted paper...swooon. A embossed heart, spritz, and a birthday banner complete this card. The top card uses Teresa Collins designer paper, I luv the "old fashioned wallpaper" look of this piece. I paired it with some bolder prints to make it stand out. I hope you have a fabulous day, don't forget to stop by my Esty Boutique and check out the great prices on some gently used 6x6 paper pads....enjoy!

Thanks For Guiding Me

Happy Saturday all, I had to play along with Stacey'e new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. I was drawn to the kraft hat and used kraft for my base. I used the blue and yellow color scheme and a Verve uplifting sentiment. I missed Chupa's sketch deadline from last week, but wanted to play along anyway. The week really snug up on me, good because the weekend came quicker but bad for my check off list; yes, I work off a list! It keeps me organized and makes me feels like I am accomplishing summin...lol. Hope you have a great evening....enjoy!

You Got This!

I luv the sketch from Retro Sketches last week, so may awesome possibilities! It gives you the option to keep adding sweet layers or make it more CAS. I adore the green with the blue, a fun color combo. I used a sentiment from a Unity set, crocheted flowers(one of which I dyed to the color of my choice), washi tape, and lots of layers complete my card. More cards to share all weekend, be sure to stop back by. Also, I added some fun/gently used 6x6 paper pads to my Etsy Boutique at great prices, check them out too.....enjoy!

Mojo Monday/MOJO302-July Diva Dare Tattered Pages

Hello friends, my card is using today;s Mojo Monday sketch and it is my turn to answer the July Verve Diva Dare, Tattered Pages. The title alone inspires me to create....teehehehe. Julee (Poetic Artistry) and myself (Paperie Blooms)are the spotlight divas this month! Julee has created countless, uplifting sentiments which have become one of Verve's trademarks, and if you follow my blog you know I luv distressing and "shabbiness" on my cards.  So head over to the Verve Blog to get all the details! I went all out on the shabby/distressing element of my card, totally luv this look! I layered, tore, scrunched, and curled my card to the perfect shabby look. I luv that Julee creates scripture stamps and what is more uplifting than scripture? I reached for the Plain Jane Psalm 37:4, I stamped it and then cut it out using the Classy Label Die by Verve. I added a Wavy Heart Die by Verve to the left corner. The positive scripture and all the shabby goodness complete the dare for me this month! I look forward to how you answer this month's Tattered Pages Verve Diva Dare!
