My Dear

Hello my blog friends!!

How are you today? All is well I hope!

I have been in the house all day....the weather REALLY stinks! It's been raining all day.
However, the kids have been awesome ( reading their books for their school reports) and I have been a busy bee cardmaking! I loved it!!

The first card I am sharing with you is for
Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge...

Here is my card...

The pattern papers are from the new Echo Park line This & That.....OMG, I love it!!! The colors are so beautiful and vibrant! The cardstock is from Papertrey Ink. The stamps, flower, leaf, sentiment and frame, are all Waltzingmouse.  The gingham ribbon and lace trim are from Michaels.  The gem flourish is Zva Creative.

I colored the rose and leaf in with Copic markers G24, RV21, R29 and RV25. I used black ink from Memories.


This next card is for Dynamic Duos...  this week is the monochromatic challenge


I love these two colors together! Here is what I made...

All cardstock  and leaf stamps and die are from Papertrey Ink. The script background is from Heartfelt Creations. The sentiment is from Fiskars. I used chestnut roan chalk ink from Color Box and soft brown shadow ink from Hero Arts. The tag punch is from McGill. The twine and button are also PTI. The gems and pearls are Recollections.

Thanks for stopping by!
I'll be back in a few with another card and some pics.

Where to begin! Your first card is vibrant and pretty. Love the focal tag with the gingham, snippet of kraft lace and rose blossom!

Then there is your FABULOUS sympathy card. Love your design and those prettty leaves. Thanks for playing along with us at Dynamic Duos!

Both really pretty cards Michelle. Your first card has such lovely background paper and your DD makes me realize that fall will be here soon enough.

LOVE that paper on the first card and the stamped flower is just perfect with it! Those colors and all the bling flourish are wonderful. Those leaves are just right for a sympathy card and I love the look of the center leaf with the pearls around.

These cards are both amazing. Your WMS card is truly stunning with your lovely pattered background papers and the dimension you achieved with the rose.

Love the lace and the pearl embellishments and the way you stamped the sentiment on the tag.

Awesome job, and thanks so much for playing along with the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge this week!

Two absolutely gorgeous cards, Michelle! I just love how the little sentiment oval and the pearl flourishes just flow together!
