Raspberry colors, a clean and simple layout, and another limelight post


Hi everyone, happy Sunday! I have a couple cards to share with you. This first one is for Dawn's Raspberry Suite color challenge -to use Berry Sorbet, Aqua Mist, Dark Chocolate and White. What fun colors! I immediately thought of what a fun birthday card they would make. The sunburst image is from Verve's Wishful Elegance set and the sentiment is PaperTrey's Birthday Basics.

This card was super easy to make. Just pull out all the circle punches you own and start punching your scraps!! There are 2 scored lines on either side of the ribbon. See that cute little bow? I made it from the Bow Easy! Oh man oh man, perfect bows everytime I tell ya! I bought it from Sharon's Stamp Simply store. She is out of stock now, but ordering more as fast as she can.


This next card is a sketch from the Clean and Simple blog. I am new to this blog, but I like it as they have "fall to layout" every week and lots of CAS card samples throughout.

Now that I look at my card, it may not qualify as a CAS card persay, but I followed the sketch -honest!! LOL! Isn't this beaver (is that what he is?) the cutest? I have had this chipboard piece for some time now and finally found a sketch to accomodate it! The DP and chipboard is from DCWV Green Stack. I love all the woodland creatures in this line and the papers have such fun colors to them! The ribbon is from Heidi's store and the Kaiser pearl is from Flourishes.


Today is my second week as the Flourishes Limelight designer. Here is a tiny peek of one of my cards. You will have to hop on over to the Flourishes blog to check out my MIM/LIM cards. Can you guess which set I used from the peek??

Stay tuned as I will be back with some Featured Stamper cards. I need to play catch up from celebrating a good blogging friend's week (yes, Kathy, it will get made -LOL) AND my roomie, Joan Ervin, is chosen as today's FS!! Congrats roomie!! I have to look at some wall kitchen cabinets today then I can get to work.
