On this second card, I embossed the green layer with the writing cuttlebug embossing folder before mounting on the navy card to accentuate the writing in the background of the image.
This third card was so easy--I just cut out the gift bag image and adhered it to yellow cardstock allowing the "tissue paper" to stick up over the top.
I hope yall enjoy these. You should really try this sometime!

This first card is very simple -- just black ink on purple cardstock (my new cardstock from the Bold Brights color family). I think I'm gonna make several basic cards like this to keep in my stash for when I need a card but don't have time to make one.
This second card is on black cardstock. I stamped the flowers with black on a scrap of paper, then matted it on a solid piece. I stamped the sentiment (Thank you...for your friendship) on a smaller piece of the same solid. I used a square punch to make the points on the right side of it. I finished it off with 3 purplish dew drops. If anyone is considering getting this set, I highly recommend you do so.

It's not that there is anything wrong with either of these, they just didn't turn out the way I envisioned. Be sure to go to Libby's site this week and check out the other submissions for this challenge.
Now here's a picture of my cutie pies. Jason and I pick up new jammies for them this weekend. Anthony got Scooby-Doo and Joey got Mario.
I hope yall are all having a great Monday.

A few details for those of you interested--The background was embossed with a cuttlebug folder. The green long strip (yeah, that's green) was also embossed with the same folder, but I flattened out the embossing a little so it wouldn't be too much. The "thanks" is embossed with copper. Although they are hard to see, there are five clear dew drops on the right side of the card. I also put a clear dew drop in the middle of the blue flower and also put crystal lacquer on the blue flower. I hope yall enjoy!

I know the pictures are blurry, but I still haven't figured out the best way to take pictures of cards. By the way, can someone tell me how to schedule a post with blogspot? I haven't been able to figure that one out yet. I'm gonna try to go make a card, although I may have forgotten how since it's been so long!

There is lots of noise going on right now--Joey yelling for me to come see how much of his homework he has done, Anthony yelling because he doesn't want to take a bath, and Jason yelling because Anthony won't sit down in the tub. Needless to say, this post is gonna be short because I need to take care of some of this chaos. I hope yall are having a great week.
