Its Friday and we are having company for a couple days. I wanted to show you these cards before I have to clean up! Oh no, 'Clean Up', that means I may never find you again if you don't get to your home before the final CLEAN.  Three of the four cards are the Poppy Girl stamp from Unity. The last card, the poppies, which is appropriate for this post, features a stamp from Power Poppy Stamps. Here we go!
This little gal needs some embellishments and maybe some encouraging words. Wanted to share the pastels. Love this stamp!
Just a note to say, I really am excited to have company and I don't mind the 'clean'. Maybe I will find that lost stamp!!
Thanks for looking,

It's a beautiful day here. Lets start with some more cards and ideas. Todays feature is the'vertical' card. The first ones are "Thank You's" made with a Tattered Lace alphabet die.

Next  ones are stamped with an OLD Magenta image of the 3 pots! Love these, but probably haven't used them for 15 years. Ok, stamped and embossed in black, and colored with irridescent H20's.

More cards with Marianne dies. Yummy! Yes, these could have been embellished, but sometimes the chuch perfers a flat card. Better for mailing. The big ( and it is about 4.5 ) circle looks plain and , but it is one of my most used dies. Fits nicely on a 5x5 card.

This is a  picture of the die I used for the cards in yesterdays post. Thought you might like to see. Fairly new.

Thanks again for looking!

March 2017

New month, new post. Today I have another Marianne Die. It is as you see a square with a bit of lacy cut-outs. At first I thought it it was limited but only by the size. Any image for any theme can be put in the center. Or if you like, just words or a flower! Really easy and color makes it versatile too.

Marinne creatable sheets (collage sheets). Try Buddly Crafts unless you have a local store
This one shows all four pieces in the set. The lacy layer in the center is what I cut in half and used on the sides of the heart cards in a previous post. Of course the white layer on top  is a plain circle.

Thanks for looking!
