The DS paper is "Bali Breeze" and the card stock is rose red. I used 3 different stamp sets. . . Baroque Motifs for the swirly background, Polka Dots & Paisley for the word "happy", and the butterfly is from Kind Thoughts. I stamped the butterfly in rose red and then covered with crystal effects and translucent glitter. Hopefully you can tell a little more about the details in this picture.
These are a couple of other cards I made to send to my notorious scrapaholics friends as thank you notes for the wonderful weekend.
as always, thanks for looking. have a great day!

This card uses the main image from the same set as the first card and the background if from the boho set.
as always thanks for looking!
All together they don't look like that much, but when I was in the middle of making them I thought I'd never get done. Either way. . . I did them and I'm quite proud (even though my son still says they are birdhouses). I was really proud of the ones I made for the boys.
Loads of love stamp set with jumbo eyelets attached as the wheels. I think the hardware ads just the right touch.
I also got a box from the UPS man today. So of course I had to play tonight. I really needed to make some thank you cards. I wasn't really in "the zone" and I don't think these cards are some of my best work. But I was able to complete 4 cards in a relatively short amount of time, so I'm pleased.

I'll keep you updated on the progress. . .
as always, thanks for looking!
I used the on board basics small and the Simply Scrappin (tm) kit "Tie the Knot". If you are interested in doing something like this, check out the February Project Pack.
Here is one last picture. It is a detail of the end of the book to show how the papers look together. . . . this is probably my favorite picture of this book. . .
as always. . . thanks for looking! I'm off to work on my son's valentines.

The background cardstock is "purely pomegranate" and the DS paper is from the "Bali Breeze" set. The ribbon is chocolate 5/8 grossgrain and a green velvet from the Ribbon Originals (tm) set "Sherbet". I'm fairly pleased with the final product. I hope it fits well with everyone else's.
as always, thanks for looking!

I loved this challenge. I usually have a hard time with IC's because I'm a very literal person. But this time I think I did a little better. I'm using this card as a thank you note for one of my customers. The Red flowers are from "Brocade Basics", the wording ("joy") is from "Warm Words" and the partial background on the white paper in the middle is the background stamp "En Francais". The cardstock is Kraft, real read, and whisper white.
then. . . . since I had a little more time and felt like I was doing well tonight . . . I made ANOTHER card :)
when the new catalog came out a few weeks ago I immediately saw the designer papers "notebook" and had tons of ideas of what I could do with the set. I love the colors and the simplicity of the patterns. This is the first time I've been able to use it and I can't wait to do more with it. The stamps are from "Carte Postale" and the card stock is close to cocoa.
Well, that's what I've been doing tonight. Now, it's WAY past my bed time and I've got a big day tomorrow. . . . it's Job Shadow day and I've coordinated all the students that will be participating in my little town. Have a great weekend
and as always, thanks for looking!
