Flowery Thanks

Good Morning Stampers ~ today I have a flowery thanks card with a twist for you.

Well Zoie's recital was lots of fun.  She was so cute on the stage.  She enjoys performing and dressing up and wearing make up.  She is a girly girl!  At the same time she can get dirty with the boys.  She is such a delight and you never know what will come out of her mouth!  I am so lucky to have her as my grand daughter.

Today I saw a sketch that started me thinking.  Tuesday Morning Sketches has this sketch for their challenge.



   
When I first saw the sketch I immediately thought of the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits.  I thought the strip would be perfect to use the waves for.  But then I started thinking and wondering if I could use the leafy wreath and cut it to give a curled effect.  I played around with it and finally got it to work for me.  I added some of the large flowers and leaves and a sentiment and I was finished.  Here is my finished project.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I am spending the day with one of my best friends.  We get together once a month as we live 2 hours apart.  I am so looking forward to seeing her!  Have a Sensational Sunday and take some time to create your own flowery thanks card!

Frames

Hello Everyone ~ are you familiar with frames on a card?  I am sharing one today!

Well today will be quite busy!  Zoie has her dance recital today.  It is midday so it will take care of most of the day.  She is so excited about dancing on the big stage.  She even asked if she could take dance again this year so she could dance on the big stage.  I think she will be the ham in the family.

I was watching a You Tube video the other day and the lady was telling how she uses frames to create a lot of her cards.  I loved the look of her card and decided to see what I could do.  I cut a frame using the Lots of Labels thinlits and gold foil paper.  I applied it to my card base.  I then used the Flower Fair Framelits to cut my flowers and leaves.  I played with the placement of each of the flowers and leaves.  When I was happy with my placement, I added some gold thread at the bottom and then used glue dots and dimensionals to attach my leaves and flowers.  I added a rhinestone to the center of my flowers.  Here is my completed creation.

Thank You

Hello Stampers ~ I don't know about you, but I am always in need of a Thank You card.  I have one for you today that I made in my smooch class.

The kids got home early last night.  I was not expecting them until about 9:30 and they walked in the door at 7:30.  I was in the middle of vacuuming so I had the vacuum all over the floor.  After they got in I quickly finished the floor and put it away.  Everyone is tired but they had a great time.  They were all so tired from yesterday that they left earlier than planned.  Zoie was pretty mellow but Remi was wound up.  She was all over the place and chatting up a storm!  The after about an hour she crashed.  Jess took everyone up to bed early!

My card today is another one I made in our Smooch class.  I really like the look of this on the black paper.  We cut out the shape and then heat embossed the image.  After that we used our smooch to color it in.  I then added  the sentiment.  When I got it home, I decided to use the butterfly embossing folder for the background.  I added the shaped layer with dimensionals and then stamped and colored the mini butterfly.  Using the coordinating punch it was punched out and added to the card.  Here is my completed creation.
