I'm on Day 2 of being on my own-some (my husband's visiting his family, on a much deserved mini-holiday) and yes, I'm missing him, and yes, I have a crafting mess alllllll over the kitchen counter! Cheering the clutter! What I am not cheering, or even bearing the teeniest hint of a grin about, is the snow that's falling. Pretty yes, but c'mon...April showers...s.h.o.w.e.r.s!
And that's my segue into my pair of whimsical cards on parade today, and creating them as a 'flower and shower' pair was not intentional. I made the first one...then found a Verve Rain or Shine stamp set (NBUS...for over a year! Yikes!)...and made a second...
Even though they're both quirky, I drew ideas from sweet, talented Kim, who is our 'inspire-ee' over at TIME OUT #28~CASE with your own twist. Her card: lovely!
Mine...well. certainly not soft, delicate or pastel like hers, but, I do have outlined flowers, similar colours, in bold tones, a sprinkling of leaves and...a black panel (well, part of one) with a white sentiment. Kinda close...*grin*
My second card mimics the first, only with Wink of Stella'ed umbrellas and an embossed sentiment.
The duo...they are rather wild, aren't they? See what happens when my husband leaves? I have no one to say, "ummm...maybe not so much..." Still, I hope they'll make you smile...
In addition to TIME OUT, I'm sharing over at:
AAA Cards #37~Spring Flowers
Off to see what's for dinner...maybe cereal (I so don't cook!). Apparently, my husband's mom is making him a roast beef dinner. 'Nuff said...
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
