I've been busy! (Keep your sunglasses handy)

Aloha Howdy!

I have more cards to share with you today. The first 2 are for the Technique Lovers challenger at SCS. This week we were to make a ribbon frame. I loved this look so much I made 2 cards. I don't know about you, but it's nice to do something other than a bow.

Lavender Petal Prints
Stamp: Petal Prints
Paper: white, American Crafts pp
Ink: PTI Lavender Moon
Accessories: PTI Lavender Moon ribbon

Aqua Essence of Love
Stamp: Essence of Love
Paper: white, PTI Aqua Mist
Ink: PTI Aqua Mist
Ribbon: PTI Aqua Mist

This next card is one I've thought about making for a loooooong time. I'm not sure what's taken me so long to get it done - maybe the fear of failing? Silly I know! I'm absolutely thrilled with the way it turned out. I know the possibilities are endless with this Daisy - afterall they come in all different colors! My pet peeve though, is when florists take a perfectly beautiful white daisy and die it. WWWWHHHHHHHYYYY?!?!? (I'm not so happy when they do that to other flowers either but it doesn't irk me as much.)

Yellow Shady Daisy
Stamp: CHF Shady Daisy Backgrounder
Paper: ShortCuts clear, Yoyo Yellow
Ink: white stazon

This next card is one I just felt like making. Today was sunny and 80 and after our cold, rainy spring break last week, well the card seemed necessary!

Orange You Sweet
Stamp: Tart & Tangy
Paper: tangerine tango, Summer Picnic dsp, white
Ink: tangerine tango

This last card is one I made for a friend whose Dad recently passed away. It also works for last weeks Color Challenge at SCS.
