Well Brandy just got here to go walk and looks like it's fixing to storm! Great - wet walk. Got some cards and layouts to share today and some little Texas Roses. First is my card for CPS together with Imaginisce stamps and a Penny Black stamp and some Cosmo Cricket Core'dinations cardstock.
This one is for two challenges - the 365 Card Challenge Sketch and the Delightful Inspiration's image challenge. For this I used some Scenic Route papers and the adorable little image from Faith.
The next card is one I did for the Sketch this week over at Delilghtful Sketches.
Core'dinations has been given some Imaginisce to work with and the Design Team has all been having so much fun with the things we got. Here's a card I made using some of their stickers and paper together with Core'dinations Cardstock.
The last card is for the sketch this week over at Taylored Expressions. For this one I used an image from Paperworks Co. and some Scenic Route paper, core'dinations cardstock.
Next I have some layouts for you using two of the Imaginisce paper lines together with Core'dinations cardstock. For the first page - this is my daughter, Brandy, dancing last year in Dallas at the Pulse convention. The core'dinations cardstock is the line they did with Jillibean. I LOVE this numbered cardstock - perfect for so many pages.
The next page is another line of the Imaginisce papers together with some Core'dinations cardstock and some of their new Gemstones line. I actually just randomly sanded some of the gemstones which created some different shading to the background. The flowers were made using a Cuttlebug embossing folder with some basic core'dinations cardstock on different colors. I then sanded them and cut out and layered them.
Lastly since I'm always so impressed with the beautiful flowers that Linda Beason always has on her blog posts I decided to take the opportunity to take some pictures of these Texas Roses (cacti) since they don't bloom very long here. The last picture is the Lantana that covers my flower beds - they are just about the only flowering thing I have found that the deer won't eat. AND they will eat it the first year you put it out - well just nibble - then the next year I guess it doesn't taste the same so they leave it alone.
Thanks for stopping by!
