I Appreciate You

Welcome back and thanks for coming and checking on what I am creating today.  The challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks is Anything Goes.
I used this wonderful paper pack from Heartfelt Creations called Countryside Evening Collection.  The sentiment stamp is from the Heartfelt Creations called Antique Lantern Pre-Cut Collection.  I used Spellbinders and Cheery Lynn Dies, added some flowers, and some bling.  Inked up my edges with Walnut Stain and used Wink of Stella pen for some added glitter on the word thanks.
Please pop over to 4 Crafty Chicks and play along with the design team and our Crazy Egg challenge Anything Goes.  Till next time happy crafting!

Happy Birthday Bridge

Welcome back friends, wow almost the end of July crazy how this summer is flying by.  I do hope you are enjoy your time with family friends.  The weather has been much nicer to us this month and we sure appreciate it.  As our Winter was so very long, and the spring wasn't that great.  But on the bright side it is a wonderful day today, and that is all that counts.
My card today is the last one for July's Inspiration at One Crazy Stamper, I am showcasing another way you can use your dies.  If you remember the first post this month I used the bridge die and sparkle and now today, using it again.  This time I added some versa mark and some white embossing powder, you can't really see it in the photos, but it is there, and then adding some flowers and more dies from spellbinders to finish my card off.  I like how you can make these dies all work together and in array of ways.  So pop on over to Lora's store she has this Memory Box bridge die, and tons of others.  I do hope you get a chance to take in all the Inspirational project the design team has showcased for you this month, share the love, as we really appreciate a comment or two. Till next time I hope you get crafty!

Friends are Forever

Hello friends, I haven't done this very often showing you another persons card, but again, it is just such a beautiful card and she is such a great friend, crafter and person I just had to share it.  She doesn't have a blog, which she really does need one, so she could share her wonderful creations with everyone.
I love how she added the bling (peals and rhinestones) together around the oval.  The ribbon is so perfect her little bows are amazing.  The words "friends are forever" are raised up a bit, you can't see this very good in my photo but trust me they are.  The color and the sentiment is wonderful.  I feel very blessed to have this lady in my life and truly giddy receiving this card in the mail.  Nothing feels better than getting fun mail.  If you can comment at the bottom, she will see this, or I'll send it to her.  Thanks again for stopping to see what I have going on.  Hope you get into your craft room, and get creative too!
