Some People...

Hey there! I've been quiet, huh? It's not normal I tell you! Well I haven't been getting alot of crafting done, got my nose stuck in a book, lol! I did sit down today and make a couple cards though! One is for tomorrow's Viva la Verve! sketch though so I'll share that one tomorrow:)

This is one of those cards I created, just for fun! I love it when my mind is free to create whatever I want WITH whatever I want! 

It's a fairly simple card, but I didn't want this one too busy. I started by cutting a circle in the Harvest Gold cardstock, embossing the gold cardstock with my Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder, and then stamping the flower from Great Friend in Tempting Turquoise ink. I stamped it off again and then cut the middle flower out and popped it up with on a dimensional. I cut a couple scalloped edges with my EK Success edge punch and then wrapped some Harvest Gold ribbon around the card front. The Harvest Gold piece was popped up on dimensionals as well. Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from Feel the Sun. OH! I forgot to mention that the decorative edge of the card base and the Harvest Gold cardstock was done with PTI's edger die.

So I also had a SUPER happy mail day today! Wanna see?
My Grand Calibur arrived!!!

I also got four Grand Nestabilities dies: Circles, Scalloped Circles, Labels 1 and Labels 4!

Some FABBY twine from The Twinery!! Aren't all those colors gorgeous?? Totally makes me want to go stamp, lol!
