Thank goodness its Friday....I haven't had any time to make cards this week which always leaves me feeling a bit down :( But I have a couple of cards to share that I made last weekend.
First up is a card for Less Is More and the birthday challenge at Uniko:
I stamped the lovely Uniko butterflies in fresh, spring colours. I cut one butterfly out in yellow and popped it up and stamped another on the card base to add a bit more interest. It is a simple design but you can never go far wrong with a few butterflies :)
I will also link up for a third time at Simon Say's Wednesday Anything Goes challenge.
Next up is a second entry for this week's CASology where the cue card is mini. This is the card that I made for my hubby for our 13th wedding anniversary this week. I am still waiting for mine so there may not be a 14th wedding anniversary!
I used this sweet sentiment from Pink Petticoat and popped it up with my new Memory Box cross stitch rectangles. Just a little touch of red to the heart added a bit of colour.
I hope you like them! I am determined to find some time to get creative this weekend so watch this space :)
Love these--the layered stamping is well done and the little sentiment box is so cute!ReplyDelete
I adore the design of your first card, you may say it is simple but not to me! I really like how one butterfly is stamped off the edge and the colours are really refreshing. Thanks for joiining Uniko xReplyDelete
Ba ha ha! Happy Anniversary Sarah! Hope he gets to remain 'your happily ever after!' This is a fantastic take on the cue! Just love how you have chosen to make your mini sentiment the focus, with that pop of red in the heart. Getting jealous again over that cross-stitch die too... Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week! Absolutely love this! xxReplyDelete
I love the off-the-edge butterflies and those colors truly say spring. The anniversary card is so CAS and perfect. I never get an anniversary card, so don't sweat it.ReplyDelete
