Fun Afternoon...

This afternoon I spent all my time making some cards.  It was fun to just do one after another.


This was my first one.  It was so pretty outside I just wanted to make something cheerful.  Very simple.  I just cut your basic rectangles and embossed a few and stamped "With Love" and voila!  Oh, then I added the pretty yellow pearls.  Very simple.  Very quick.  Very pretty.


My next card was just thrown together.  I had some scraps that I wanted to use and this is what I came up with.  Again, basic rectangles, some embossing and a "Thank You" stamp with a few pink pearls.  The flower stems I made with gold-edged green ribbon.  It turned out very nicely I think.  Another fast and easy one.


My last card took a bit longer.  I  used my trusty Black Cat Lynx to cut out my shapes which are actually Penny Duncan Shaplies files.  Thank you Penny!  I layered every other layer white and silver cardstock.  I then added the flower which was a file that I got from somebody on the MTC forum.  I am so sorry but I do not know whose file it is or I would surely give credit where credit is due!  If anyone knows, please let me know so I can add the owner's name of this file!  Anyway, I embossed a bit, taped a lot, and added a few little rhinestones at the four corners and a larger one in the center of the flower.  This is a wedding card for the daughter of some friends of ours.  I am very pleased with how it turned out.  I am sorry my photos are so dark.  I should have waited to take the photos in the daylight, but I won't have time tomorrow!

So, you see, I had a wonderful time this afternoon just whittling away the hours making pretty things.  I like those kinds of days!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
