More Field Flowers

I just love the color Night of Navy.  I don't use nearly enough.
Since I went on a Field Flowers kick, I decided to use some Night of Navy with it.
I like the simplicity of this card.  I think because the bow is not to thick, it would even make it through the mail with a normal stamp.  Who knows. 

At our last club meeting 2 of the girls brought some cards they had made for show and tell, and 2 of the girls brought us little gifts.  I will do my best to get those to upload and share with you. 
I'm so proud of these ladies.  I really do love club!  These women have become such wonderful friends.
I miss the few who had to take a sabbatical, and hope they rejoin us again real soon.

See you again soon.
Thanks for stopping by today.

P.S.  I don't know if you noticed the new bar on the side to follow me on pinterest or not.  I have to tell you that Pinterest is my new addiction.  There are so many great ideas and recipes on there.  If you don't know what it is yet, click on there and ask me for an invite and I will invite you to join.  It's given me the motivation to do fun things to my house again, and make new recipes.  If you haven't tried it yet, you gotta.  {{{{big cheesy grin}}}}

Just be happy

I'm so frustrated with blogger right now, that I need to take my own advice and "just be happy". 
I have been struggling uploading pictures to my blog the last few days.  When it takes more than 10 minutes for a picture to upload.....I get frustrated.  Oh well.  Upward and onward.
This is one of the cards that I made for my stash.  I saw someone else made a card similar to this and I loved how they used the two stamp sets together. People are so creative!!!  I don't know who to give credit too, but if you do....let me know and we will give them credit.
For this card I used Marina Mist and Poppy Parade.

Thanks for peeking in.
Have a wonderful day.

Happiest thoughts

I have been seeing lots of cute cards made using the Field Flowers stamp set, and so I just had to get it. 
I have been playing the last few days with it too.
I have also been thinking that with all the new changes to Stampin Up and the new catalog coming out in June instead of July, that I really need to use up last years In Colors.
This card uses Poppy Parade (which I will really miss when it goes away) and Pear Pizazz.
I also noticed that one of the rhinestones fell off of one of the flowers in the upper left hand corner....oops.

I have a few more cards that I have made using this stamp set that I will be sharing in the next few days as well.

Thanks for peeking in.
Have a wonderful day.

Birthday thank you cards....

These are what the cards I made for my club girls this month for their thank yous look like.
Boy, that was confusing wasn't it?
I figured why not make some more cards for my stash while I was making their cards too.  So, I made 4 of these for me as well.
 I ran out of white ribbon, so I just used red ribbon on the rest of the packages for my cards.
These were some fun, yet easy, cards to make.

Thanks for peeking in today.
I hope your day is wonderful.

Simple butterfly card

I love the simplicity of this card.  I saw a card similar to this one, and LOVED it.
I think the simple detail of rounding the corners and how it makes the card just look softer.
Pool Party and Calypso Coral look so good together, don't you think?
 This shot is to show you the layers of the butterfly.  I love the little heart on the butterfly wing with a little bit of bling. 
Thanks for peeking in today.
Have a wonderful day today.
