Happy Thursday Part 2

I'm back and children are no longer complaining of grumbling tummies. Here's a few more I've been working on.

This is another card that didn't quite come together how I had it in my mind but I still love it!  I think it could be used for a variety of occasions. I was going for clean and simple but it ended up more colorful and complicated.
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Pixie Pink (retired), Whisper White
Ink: Versamark, Pacific Point marker
Accessories: Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Word Window Punch, Bitty Banners framelits, Big Shot, Petals-A-Plenty EF, Beautiful Butterflies Bigz, Rhinestones Basic Jewels, Glue Dots - LOTS OF THEM!

Another cute Christmas Card!  I think this will be perfect for my grandma as she loves to wear Cardinals in the winter time.
Stamps: Warmth and Wonder, More Merry Messages
Ink: Baked Brown Sugar, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler
Paper: Baked Brown Sugar, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Season of Style DSP stack
Accessories: Oval Framelits, Big Shot, Extra-Large Oval Punch, Hexagon punch(to flag the ends of the banner), Stylish Stripes EF, Perfect Polka Dots EF

Last, but not least, I wanted a card with a spiritually encouraging message.  I love the paper doilies - they add such a soft touch to a card.
Stamps: Trust God
Paper: Basic Gray, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Raspberry Ripple, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Gray, Raspberry Ripple, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Paper Doilies, Stripes EF, Big Shot, Pretty Print EF, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, Decorative Label Punch, Circles #2 Originals Die, Raspberry Ripple 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, Rhinestones Basic Jewels

I was very happy with how my bow turned out!  Hope you've enjoyed my selections for today.  See you soon!
