Hello! I hope you've had a great weekend! We've been enjoying having hubby back home! It's been raining all weekend so here's hoping Spring is here to stay! Now for the snow all to disappear, so much this year it may take a while! As I write this the kids are playing beside me, Carter in a shirt a diaper and rubber boots! LOL I remember when Ariel was that age and now Carter is here loving rubber boots and wearing them ALL THE TIME! :>
Today Ariel and I went to a shower for hubby's cousin's fiance. We did a group gift with his family and I made the card. I thought that the aqua ribbon flower from my video was a perfect starting point and here is what I came up with:
I may be slightly into this color combination currently! But this is what happens when you leave something to the last minute! I pretty much threw this card together! I had the rough idea in my head but had to work on it fast! To me this card screams spring! You can see how with this flower I played around with how I twisted the ribbon giving it more dimension. The bride loved it and showed it to all the guests! :> I thought that the Best Wishes was a good sentiment for a shower, right?
I wanted to let you know how much you all touched me with your kind comments here and on the HA blog! And I've been thrilled to see some creations with the flowers:
I love how Barb did it with two different ribbons, you can see it here. I love what she put in the middle of it here.
My fellow hostess Linda made one with her favorite colors purple, check it out here.
And I love seeing the ones that Nat made, can't wait to see them on a card, check it out here.
Please let me know if you make some too! :>
Well I can hear my little ones running amock in the house so I better run! But I do want to leave you with a cute photo I took of them on Monday, hopefully the last time we will play in the snow:
I went to take a photo of Carter and Ariel came up and put her arms around him so quick and it worked so well! They love each other so! Don't you love there hats? I have a thing for cute hats!!
