Sunflower for a Special Day

Happy Friday! I'm here with a quick post for the Queen for the Day challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The queen is Carole aka ckbythesea and this is the card I cased.  Carole punched her petals and I used a Cheery Lynn Designs die cut called Sunflower. My stem is hand cut

Have a wonderful weekend doing something that makes you happy. I intend to do that.

Stamp-Inspired by Stamping/Flowers Bloom (sentiment)
Paper: PTI white and Stampin'Up! Pool Party cardstock
Accessories-Cheery Lynn Designs die cut/ Sunflower, white grosgrain ribbon, Cuttlebug embossing folder/Divine Swirl

Meow Meow

The cats have invaded my blog today. :-) Frances Byrne gave the challenge at CCEE Stampers this week: C is for CCEE challenge and what else? How many things beginning with this letter can you use to create a card? Think colors, images, embellishments, or styles of card.
I'm sure I could have made a circle card and used cream cardstock but I wanted to use my kitty cats and case a card.  So, here are my 'C' items and I may be stretching it a bit to use some of them.  C for cat,  cat eyes/circles (I made them with rhinestones),  checked paper, Cricut. I used the Cricut to cut my cats and sentiment. Of course, I used cardstock. I can't prove it but I cased my sister's card. :-) I made this card while visiting with her for a few days. I really like hers better. I flipped the sketch and really shouldn't have. Her card was a side opener.
Be sure to check out the rest of the team's cards. I think they will have come up with something better than I did. Just the same, it was fun making my card and I think you will enjoy this challenge. Come on over and join in.
Paper-PTI white cardstock, Martha Stewart 12 x 12 paper pad/Playful Blue (I think), SU Olive green cs scraps
Accessories-rhinestones, Martha Stewart grass punch, Cricut/Going Places, Martha Stewart Laurel leaf punch border punch

Wedding Card

Here I am with a card I wasn't expecting to make. I decided to get crafty today and make a card I really need.

This is the first wedding card I've ever made. Don't know why, just haven't. I was needing one and today was Featured Stamper today on Splitcoaststampers. The FS is Mary aka MaryR917 and I cased this white on white card of hers. Really, the only part I cased was the color. I had some dies I wanted to use so mine is quite different.

I rolled my roses using a Sizzix die listed below.

My card is entered into the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog-White on White

Stamps-None (inside only)
Paper-PTI white cardstock
Accessories-Cuttlebug textile embossing folder, Cheery Lynn Designs/Victorian Romance Flourish, Spellbinders Classic Heart, Sizzix Flowers-Bigz Die, white pearls, hot glue gun
