With Loving Thoughts


This was my dads Fathers Day card,  I used a die cut from DieVersions, and stamps from various sets for a monochromatic look.  We had brunch with the family at a local restaurant and had a very nice time.

Todays release is:
 
 
 
 
I could not resist two cards with this beautiful set.  The top card uses Butterfly Elements and the new French Country Papers.  Below I printed Butterfly Elements on vellum and immediately embossed it in gold, added an embossed border at the top and a couple sequins and there we are.  Two birthday cards ready to go.  I have a lot of June birthdays so these will be mailed soon.

Introducing I've Been Framed




Wow, already day four of MHKDesigns release!  Another fabulous set:

Todays release is:
 


I really liked this saying with the tree framing it, took minimal coloring with my Tim Holtz distress markers and paired it with some papers that have been in my stash for many years.   How do you like the photograph?  I found this wood slab at Michaels in the woodworking section and the window is my craft room/office window.  The lake is a bit muddy as we have had a lot of rain so stay tuned for a better picture when the rain has stopped for a bit.

One more day to the release so say tuned and remember:

I immediately pictured a shaker card with this hot pepper and "You are totally HOT,HOT, HOT and was quite pleased with the outcome.  The hot pepper at the bottom is fussy cut and has glossy accents on it for shine.  I had a difficult time getting a clear picture of this cards shaker section but you get the idea.  It is filled with all types of sequins, and glitter. This is going to dear hubby for Fathers Day. I hope you have a lot of fun with this set!
