Sorry I have been absent for the last week. I have missed getting on all the blogs to see what has been going on. We are having work done on the house (basement) and I had both of my children home for Spring Break. I thought I would be able to do some card making but as you can see this is my first in over a week, it is good to be back. This card holder was made with the new Carousel Notes in the Occasions Mini and the SAB rub-ons. I cut the carousel notes down into quarters, so you can make 4 cards using one of these Carousel Notes. I whole punched around the scallops and put white brads in each of the openings. I was inspired by Patty’s blog to create this project. This card was really simple to make. Enjoy!
I hope everyone had a great Easter. Mine was busy with my daughters finding places to stay for our trip to Italy. Now we just need to wait and see if any of the places are available. Hopefully we will be lucky and have an apartment in Florence, Amalfi Coast, and Rome. I am getting very excited about the trip but also a little stressed in thinking about all I need to do. It will get done eventually.
I am so in the mood for Spring. The weather has been nice other than the wind. Hopefully it will die down and we can really enjoy the sunny cool days. My colors for the challenge today were More Mustard and So Saffron. The first thing that came to my mind were daisies, pansies, and bees. Needless to say I took the idea and ran with it. I began by using the card sketch from JendelMuro.
I ended up modifying it a little to suite my card. Here is her sketch and my card.
In Full Bloom and Simple Sayings II (both retired) Paper:
Basic Black, More Mustard, So Saffron, So Saffron DS, White Ink:

So what do you think? Are you in the mood for Spring also. Hope you have a great day and Thanks for looking!
Well as usual the day got away from me. I was hit with a bad case of allergies over the weekend and it threw me for a loop. Needless to say I am running behind.
I saw the Mojo Monday sketch on PoeticArtistry
on Monday and knew I wanted to do it for Wednesday. She challenged us not to use a square or circle where the butterfly was. I got to thinking that most people would probably do a flower so as usual I wanted to do something different than a flower. My Unfrogrettable set came to mind and the creativity took off from there. I thought it would be fun to use lily pads in place of the swirls and for the strip in the middle a wharf came to mind. Needless to say the card came together fairly quickly once I had all my elements. Here is the Mojo Monday sketch and my card. Let me know what you think of my interpretation.
