Some Cards

Had some time late last night to work on some cards. Lovin ctmh new BITTY BRADS, they are so great for the little flower centers and come in a variety pack of colors. Used my nestabilities for the scallop circle and just cut off the right end to be flush with the paper. I made this card with simple stamping using some of my favorite CTMH stamp sets "friendship blessing" and "Because of You", ocean ink, chocolate ink, bitty brads, ribbon from Michael's.
Same card in a different color combination: black, white, bubble gumThis is the inside, used the scallop circle nestabilities and paper piercer to make the holes

Another color combination: ocean, white and sweet leafCtmh groovy blossoms, ctmh white big blooms, american crafts ribbon, ctmh chocolate cs, ctmh window charms (the clear apoxy bubble over the flower center), ctmh stamp set "friendship word puzzle" Using up those scraps!!!
And my favorite! This is my take on the card on the cover of Cards. I used making memories noteworthy collection pink ledger paper, ctmh chocolate cs, ctmh stampset "Free Spirit" (flourish), ctmh "from me to you" stamp set, leaves from ctmh "angel whispers" stamp set, chocolate and crystal blue ink, prima flowers, textured green paper, hand cut hearts from cranberry cs, Martha Stewart butterfly punch ( I used orange mulberry paper for the butterfly), stamped the thankyou on a transparency in brown stazon, paper piercer and zig zag scissors for the grass, making memories brad, jewel brad from Joann's. The little bird is from the $ stamps at Michael's.

Beautiful cards - love the colour combinations.

Can't get her to hold still long enough to weigh her, but Fidgit - now fully grown at 2 1/2 - stands about a foot tall. She's classed as a small breed here. She's a real Mummy's dog and loves cuddles, really playful but, as I said, she HAS to have the last word!! I really hope you find one and you find something that will help with the allergy.
