I had originally wanted to make a looped bow but it was too much so I opted for a knot instead. It is off centered so I could place the "Hi" sentiment on layered dimensional Nestie hearts, which is accented with more of the punched flowers. My DH said it is a bright and cheery card! I told him that was my goal.
I also have been given two awards! My very first ones and I receive two in two days! WOW y'all are great! My sister Jody (Joann to everyone else!) gave me this award:
She is the one who inspired me to start blogging in the first place with her great blog with all things thrifty, gardening, sewing and other fun stuff! THANKS JODY!
So I pass this one on to my Lisa Phillippi at Adornments by Lisa , and you can see why below!
*Next I received this one from my great blogger and paper soul sister Lisa Phillippi:
Lisa's great blog is full of great cards and beautiful floral punch art, which she also teaches! Lisa and met on the Stamp TV forum and came to realize that we loved the same styles of cards, paper art and also floral punch! What is really neat, that while I have many blogger friends all over this country and the world even, is that Lisa and I are going to get to meet AND take a floral punch class taught by Susan Tirney Cockburn (see this post) together in a couple of weeks! Double fun! Meeting blogger friends isn't always possible because of the logistics of our locations and it is a rare treat to get to meet them in person!
This award is so cute, I love ladybugs and have a card on my "to do" list with a ladybug theme! So now I pass on this award to my 10 Fav's, which is hard to pick just 10! Here they are in no particular order:
That's the first 5 and I will post the other 5 on the next post! These blogs are great! You will find wonderful paper art, humorous content, inspiring posts, useful info, so have fun exploring them! I have to get ready for Pesach (Passover) so I will try to get the table gift posted tomorrow, until then,
Comments are always welcome, let me know if there is a technique you would like to know more about!
