Happy Friday!! Yikes.... before I know it, this week has flown by so fast and I have missed blogging almost the whole week. Been totally in spring cleaning mode, so I've been busy cleaning & trying to re-organize my room. 

I cleaned up my stash quite a bit and I found good home for all the goodies. I am sending the stash to Kelly Latevola, who currently collecting crafty goodies to help her friend Angie who lost everything in an apartment fire. Please check out Kelly's blog post if you are interested to help out.

Now the cleared up space didn't last long at all. Hah! I have quite a few new stuff coming in thanks to a couple fabulous gift certificate that I won recently. This time I ordered a few sets that's been on my wish list for a while. A couple of my favorite sets are Technique Tuesday Ali Edwards Summer sentiment set and this Hummingbird set from Kaiserkraft. 

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

I just love, love, love them! The font combination in Ali Edward's sentiment designs always make my heart beat faster. Yes... that's how much I love her designs. :) And how  true is that sentiment? In case  you are wondering, no I don't work for Technique Tuesday, I simply believe in gushing about products that I do love. I only have a few of Ali's sets but every time I used them I cannot help but feeling wow, I love this and it's so great that you can use her set for card as well as for scrapbooking. I have a long wish list for Ali Edwards set. Hm... when is my birthday?? Sigh... still months away.

And that birdie stamp?? Make my heart pitter patter, too. For some of you who have followed  my blog for awhile you know how much I love bird stamps. The moment I saw this one I know I have to have it.

Now, since I didn't post anything this past few days, we can play catch up, right? How about 2 cards for 1 day? This next card is a card I  made for Hero Arts flower challenge. Yep, my rare moment where I use flowers for my card. I always find them pretty but challenging to use.

Note to self: have to remember to try stamping with white on colored cardstock more often. 

Thank you all so much for stopping by here and just an an fyi, we will have a big & fun blog hop coming this weekend as Lily Pad Cards celebrating their 1st birthday! Hope you will join us & help us celebrate.

I wish you all a day full of sunshine.

Vera, I love the Ali Edwards pretty, and the card is gorgeous! I also love the poppies in white on colored card stock. Gorgeous!

Gorgeous cards! Love what you did with both..the colors on the first are devine and the flower card is stunning. (this from a true flower-challenged individual!)

OH! I just love that first card---SO GORGEOUS:) And those poppies on the second card are BEAUTIFUL! LOVE!

Cheryl said...

Wow! These cards are so beautiful! I love the clean look of the first card (plus, that shade of green is my all-time fav!), but the pink card is stunning! I really like that you gave the poppies some depth with added darker color.
