Happy Wednesday everyone! We are half way to the weekend!! And that means it's time for a brand new challenge over at the super fabulous Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week's challenge is called...Special Lady/Girly Challenge!
This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Doodlebug! You don't have to use them on your card but if you have them, we would love to see them! ;) I used the Kraft in Color 6x6 Paper Pad, a White Doily and some Lily White Sugar Coating Glitter, all by Doodlebug, on my card.


I coated all of the Prima flowers with some Diamond Glitter glue by Ranger and then the glitter. I also used the Martha Stewart 3 in 1 Butterfly Punch, some May Arts Natural Twine and White Opal Liquid Pearls.


The stamped sentiment is from the Best Mom Ever Clear Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp.

♥ Vintage Memories ♥

Hi there! One of my New Year's resolutions this year was to join in on more challenge blogs. Which translates to...take more time out for mommy! I'm always putting everyone else first and always running around for my kids, which I love, but decided I need to take more time to relax and enjoy life. And one way I love to relax is to make things! Especially cards. So here is my card for this week's sketch over at the Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog! Such a fun one too! :)


I used some old papers and embellies from Farm House Paper Company. I've been hoarding them forever and decided to finally let go! I also used a paper rose,some May Arts Natural Twine and some White Opal Liquid Pearls.


Here is the fab sketch!

And, did I mention, it's being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this week! :)


Hope you have an amazing day! We are snowed in again! Kids are off from school and having a blast! :)

hugs...
