Paper play...two days in a row!


I LOVE "snow days..." guilt free paper play time in my happy room!

This card will be in today's post to an old friend who's recovering from surgery and coping with a catastrophic illness. It meets the following challenges:

City Crafter (handmade flowers...I hand beaded mine)
Crazy Amigo (good intentions)
Papertake Weekly (ribbons and/or pearls)
Spoonful of Sugar (blue and green...my seed beads)

I used Tulip® Glam it Up™ Iron On Crystals™ on these cards too, glued on with Aleene's® Paper Glaze™, both by iLovetoCreate™.


This next card is for these challenges:

Created by Hand (use a stencil)
Crafty Creations (new beginnings)
Start Here (use a stencil)
Crafty Pad (something new)
...and I used matching colours for the current Moxie Fab World challenge; this was the Tuesday Trigger (I'm so pretty)

I used this Quietfire Design rubber stamp with this Spellbinders Nestability stencil (lacy squares) and a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today. I'll stop by your place too, if I have a link. I wish you a creative and happy day!

Deborah all the beading on your first card is just stunning and very inspiring. I must give this a try sometime. Love the simple layout of your second card and the colours used. Thanks for joining in the Start Here challenge at Stamping Vacation
