Just Basic

So, I was cleaning of my desk and decided to construct a card using several items that I've been holding on to.  I recently purchased the hexagon die cut plate from Papertry Ink and tested it using pink shimmer paper. Then I found the fun 'Spellbinder Spiral Blossom Three' flower that has been laying around for several months just waiting for a card.
I picked up this fun bling ribbon at Hobby lobby during one of my shopping trips and was just waiting for a good time to use it, now's the time!  
A Recollections Paper Pad - Valentines Day Collection and a few papers from my scrap stash.  
Simple, Sleek and Just Basic.

Wishing You A Blessed Day,

You Hold the Key

The past few days I've been working on some basic cards without Copic coloring.  Yes you read that correctly.  Having a few new paper pads that a recently picked up, I decided that I would put together a few cards just using paper and embellishments.

The card below was constructed using the Authentique Lovely Collection.  There are so many fun papers in this collection and I love that they have the smaller scale in the 6 X 6 paper pad, adding embossing from a Cuttlebug folder, some ribbon and gems from Michaels and here's the result....

Hope you enjoy!

and then there were two....

So, I know it's been along time since my last post, but I think the cold weather just had my brain frozen for any creative ideas.

I want to share a card today that I created for one of the girls that's in my bible study and she recently delivered TWINS!  I am happy to say that everyone is doing well even though they were a little early.

I recently found these images from Sweet November (Sleeping Baby Fairies), and picked them up as digital's.  Well, I have found that I like them so much that I will be purchasing the actual stamps so I can stamp in different colors and also emboss the image.

sorry the image is a little blurry
