Delightful Doilies are sooo delightful!!

Its been a super busy weekend and we still don’t have a computer at home. Luckily my husband brought his computer home from work so I have a chance to do a quick blog post.

I have really enjoyed the week of honouring over at Joy Taylor’s blog and she has posted a challenge for her readers to do the same. There are so many people I get inspiration from, but I really love Dawn McVey’s work and chose a card from the Love Birds release in December. I decided to do some Mother’s Day cards and did a lot of variations on color. Here are my creations:

Sorry for the dark photos – couldn’t get any good pictures of these with good natural light. The first card uses the new Papertrey Ink color, Royal Velvet – it looks very blue here, but it is a beautiful, vibrant purple and I can’t get enough of yellow & purple at the moment. In all these cards I have used the color that is 1 shade lighter for the layer on Mat Stack 3 – it is hard to see in the picture, but very nice in real life!
Here is Dawn’s card that I used as inpsiration:
Thanks to Dawn for being so easy to ‘honor’ and thanks to Joy for this wonderful challenge!

Happy Friday everyone!

 I had a request from someone recently for an engagement card and realized I’ve never come across a ‘Congratulations on your engagement’ sentiment in any stamp set — has anyone else? It is very common in the  UK to send engagement cards — and I’ve lived here long enough that I can’t remember if this is done in the states — is it?!?! Anyway, its on my *wish list* of sentiments…

So, onto the task at hand – this card is for Make It Mondays – Glitter Strips with Scor-tape and also the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop as I was able to use this lovely scalloped circle from Limitless Layers. I was definitely inspired by Dawn’s card in the video and already had my sites set on using this mat stack frame for the card as it is perfect for a wedding theme! The card says ‘Congratulations’ and it is a little hard to see in the picture, but fine in person!

The colors are inspired by the current Totally Hues Challenge over at the lovely Heather’s blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
