Here's a card that I saw on Dawn Olchefske's blog a couple of weeks ago.  She punched hers with the new blossom punch that's in the current mini but my punch is not coming in time to make this card for my mother-in-law's birthday so I had to used the 5 petal flower punch and turn it and punched again to make more petals.  I wanted to make sure that the pretty DP was showing through the cut out.  The DP is from last years in color pack in peach parfait and concord crush.  I think that the two colors look great together.  The small flower was made using the boho blossom punch and the other flower was from a random punch that's been in my scrap room for years and I have no idea where it came from.  Lastly, the sentiment is called Curly Cute by SU.

Simple Single Layer Card

Here's one of those simple single layered cards that is super fast and super easy to make.  It's a good layout for one of those times when you forgot to make a card for an occasion and you have to throw one together at the last minute.  This one was done in black and white but I'm sure that it would look great in any color combination.  The stamp set I used was the new one from the current Sale-a-bration catalog.  It's called Fresh Vintage and it was the first item that I picked as my freebie.  It's a wonderful versatile set that can be used so many different ways.    I also used the oval Designer Frames Embossing folder.  It's in the big catalog and also in the SAB as a free item with a qualifying order.  All you have to do is just spend $50 by March 31st and you can pick any item from the catalog.  

Happy Stamping!

Mojo Monday Challenge

I just realized that I only seem to be posting once a month lately.  My scraproom is in my basement.  It's cold down there, so I don't have much ambition to go down there at night.  Yesterday I had the day off of work and turned on a portable heater and went to work.  Since the Mojo Monday email had gone out yesterday I figured that I would tackle that too.  I'm going to give this card to my sister Michelle for her birthday since her birthday is 2 days after Easter and this card reminds me of an Easter egg.  Here's the Mojo sketch and what I came up with.

Happy Stamping!
