A Card Set!

Hello!  Happy Thursday!  Hope your day has been well!  I've enjoyed being home with Carter all day!  Hubby is off to the hockey game so it's just me and the kids tonight!  But that's okay when they go to bed I've got Grey's Anatomy to keep me company!  

Today I have a card set to share that I made for a friend.  I am trying to get back into making card sets to have on hand.  The end of the school year is coming up plus birthdays are always popping up!


I cut a panel out of white cardstock and attached three strips across, than heat embossed in white the wildflowers by Hero Arts. I used Hero Arts layering papers which made the color choices so much easier!  Each pack comes with three colors and there you go three strips!  I embellished the flowers with matching gems by HA but for the pool one I didn't have matching so I used pearls!  I also used the white part or the "inside" of the layering paper for the card so that inside:

I am entering these cards into the current Simon Says Stamp Challenge, it's use 3 different papers, I totally did!

I finished up a new wreath today.  I love this color combo!  I am working on opening an etsy store for my wreaths and I will be selling this one!  I get a lot of orders from friends too!  I love doing custom ones!



WREATH REMOVED FOR PUBLICATION!!!


I love this color combo as it's not expected!  But I love how it works together!  :>

Well I am off!  Have to practice spelling and piano with Ariel!  Than bedtime and feet up for mommy!

Anita, I'm so sorry I haven't commented sooner!

That card set is absolutely amazing, as is that wreath! GORGEOUS colours together. That teal is my favourite. It's the colour we made our front door! :)
Kudos to you for trying to open an Etsy store. What a fabulous idea to make and sell.

I also wanted to thank you for all of the kind & thoughtful words you have showered me with over the last little while! You are so kind. :)

Take care, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
