Take A Seat

Happy Saturday!!  It has been snowing quite a bit here in Colorado, and there is more yet to come this weekend.  Perfect time to bunker down in the ol' craftroom!

I have a card to share with you today that I made with some of the gorgeous flowers from I Am Roses!!  I am telling you people, if you haven't checked out their shop, you are missing out!!  A ton of styles and colors to choose from!  Great prices!  And I don't know about you guys, but have you ordered paper flowers and had to completely re-shape them when you got them?  All squished and flattened??  That is not the case with I Am Roses!!  They are careful packed, and totally card-ready when you get them!!

Here's my project-

Image- CC Designs
Paper- American Crafts, Autumn Crisp
Sentiment- Tiddly Inks 

I love these flowers!!  They really are fantastic!

Thanks for stopping by!!  I hope you have a weekend of crafty goodness!!

Here's the deets...

Rachel here today, and I wanted to share with you my card from the current ATG, "Sweet Treats" twist challenge!

I love the Lawn Fawn Summertime Charm set, it's so versatile!
This was definitely the kind of set that had to have
a bit of stitching on it!

If you look closely here, you can see a bit of glare
from the acetate I used on top of the jar to give
it more of a realistic look!

Copics used-
R39, R29, R27
W3, W1

I kept the layout simple, and just stacked some fun papers
from the Doodlebug Fruit Stand Pad.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope I have provided a bit of inspiration for you!!

A Girl And Her Dog

Yay, it's Saturday!!!  I am going to be super busy today, but I just wanted to share a quick card that I recently made for my MIL.  She helped me out a ton when Chris was out of town, and I had jury duty, so I made a thank you card with one of my favorite new images!

My Favorite Things.
I am a big Birdie Brown fan!

Could this sentiment be anymore cuter??
My MIL is a huge dog fan, so this was a no-brainer!

I kept it pretty simple with layers of paper that I distressed,
and some simple stitching from the ol' sewing machine.

Well, I'm off!!  Lots to do today!!  Check back here tomorrow for another fun post!

Thanks for stopping by!

The paper is from the darling Prima 6x6 pad called Kaleidoscope.
