Thinking of you!

Hi everyone!! Well, today I have a card to share using a simple scrap of DP I found, adding ribbon/button, then decided to stamp swirls with a sentiment for a finishing touch. This card came together very well with the "Scraps" I had laying around my craft room... it's amazing what you can find... right!?? :) The white stripe in the ribbon really adds to this card!


I also relieved a RAK (random act of kindness) in the mail a while back and decided to share this beauty made by Allison from Stampin' When I Can!!! She is such a sweet heart and I always enjoy visiting her blog. Don't you love how well the DP's work together... and the ribbon/button treatment! We're watching the Olympic US and Canada hockey game and just taking it easy this afternoon. LOVE lazy Sunday afternoons... and the sun is shinning so brightly. It's melting too! Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful week!!

SMILES... Michelle :)

I am loving your scrapy card! I love making cards with scraps. I have been trying to work with scraps lately...no new fresh sheets of paper! It is so hard when you have brand new paper you want to dig into, but getting rid of some scraps is a major to do on my list! Love the white and the flourish and the apron punch! Fabulous! And that RAK you received is SO awesome. Beautiful! As for weather, it is getting ready to rain :(..... then snow....

What an AMAZING "scrap" card - a wonderful find with that DP - just the colours I love - very clever missy!!! Hope you enjoyed the Winter Olympics - how sad it's finished for another 4 years though!

Oh yes, that is a very nice card by Allison - great use of those papers! I do love your card - that blue against the kraft is wonderful really works beautifully!

Wow, that little scrap really is great on this card! You know it took me probably 10 months to warm up to Pacific Point, now it's gone! In certain situations is looks really good... and this is one!

Beautiful, Michelle! Love the ribbon and button treatment - gives it a nice, classy touch. I'm like you - I often get get re-inspired by finding a scrap or unused embellishment still laying on my table. It's fun to make yourself use it!

Gorgeous card Michelle! I LOVE that flourish, it looks fab! The way you've done that ribbon is really good too.

Your RAK is great too. I have those little trendy trees, just never quite make much of them! I might have to play a bit more :o)
