Decided to get a card made to enter in this week's challenge on Simon Says Stamp, which is anything goes.

Went to Archivers yesterday and bought this fabulous 6 x 6 paper pad by Teresa Collins which has navy, blues and yellows in it!  Was inspired to make a simple card to show off the pretty paper. 

Thanks for stopping by!

There are several birthdays coming up soon for friends and family.  Here is a card for one of my longtime friends:

I've been wanting to use this silhouette stamp and finally decided to ink it up. Patterned paper is from the Simon Says Stamp March card kit.  Sentiment is on the inside.

Thanks for coming by.

Tomorrow is the deadline for getting a card up for the February card chain challenge at Lily Pad Cards.  There are always several choices for the theme of the card we choose to make.  I chose the Valentine's Day theme:

I have a large stash of these flowers that I made from the Tim Holtz tattered floral dies.  Cut them out of copy paper, colored them with distress inks, accented all edges with Stickles and layered them with a pearl in the center.  Rather than a true red or true pink, the flower has a coral color to it.  I like the way it looks against the paper heart doily.  The dimensional flower was in the Simon Says Stamp January card kit.  I was very pleased with the assortment of items included in the kit and am looking forward to getting future kits from them.  Well worth the subscription price - check it out!  Sentiment is from Hero Arts XO clear set. 

Happy Valentine's Day!

Sorry I've been missing in action again.  Sometimes life takes over and my cardmaking comes to a standstill.  I don't know how so many of you gals keep up with all of the challenges, contests, blog posts and comments on such a regular basis!!  I do try to visit most of the blogs on my reader pretty often; please forgive me for not always commenting. 

I digress.  My youngest grandaughter's birthday is coming up soon; she will be eight years old.  Here is the card I made for her:

She loves pink.  I used a new embossing folder from Bringing Crafts Too You - so cute! 

Have a blessed day. . .
