Grateful for you Card

I made this card by casing a Diva. Which Diva? Amy of Pickled Paper Designs! Here is her card. I have the exact same paper pack, but not the same embossing folder or stamps, but it doesn't have to be exactly the same right? What type of creativity would that be? :) Anyways, so I'm entering this card for Verve Stamps Diva Dare for September.

Then while blog hopping around today with Unity's FWF, I found Scrapbooker's Paradise and there challenge right now is to distress. Well I've got Tim Holtz's Distress inks all over this card, antique linen and Walnut Stain.

Stamps are Unity
Ink is StazOn
paper by Kaisercraft Devonshire Collection
Gem leaves by Studio18

Bicycles on Friday

Hi my Flair Friends! Happy Friday! I made this card a few weeks ago for my cousin who got married last week. A wedding card? Yep! On both there save the date and invite had bicycles, so I continued the theme with the Congrats card I made them.

I realized last week during FWF that I can enter this card in the ATU challenge #40 going on for a one layer card! Yay!

Stamps are Unity

Simple FWF

Happy Friday! I cased this card from this lovely one by sf9erfan. Similar but different. I'm frustrated that my sentiment is a little crooked, but what can a girl do? Thanks for stopping by!

FWF - Thank goodness its friday!

I made this card today for the KOTM sketch and as I was putting it up I realized that just the sentiment is from a KOTM. I really wanted to use the sentiment and I really liked it with this butterfly. I used some new paper I got with my mom in Texas. It is lovely! Happy Friday everyone!

Summer Farmer Markets

We love to go to the Farmer's Market during the summer in the evenings. We've had a great time going with friends lately. We walk around, buy some yummy fruit and sometimes other food, hang out in the grass, listen to music and let the kids run around. Just perfect.
