Happy Friday friends! It's been a busy week not leaving much time to create and share. I'm hoping to do better this next week. So many ideas - never enough time!!! I have been playing a little catchup on my project life and was eager to use my ETC stamp set. I've been a long time fan of water color and thought i would add a little to my book this week. Again another color combination in hopes of spring.... I think it's working- sunshine and blue skies today! Keep reading to see the cards and watch a little video I created to show you how to do this simple technique.
Today I am sharing my love of two things. Paper flowers and this color combination. I think the dreary weather has me wishing for some sign of spring and since I can't seem to find any looking outside. I thought I would just make my own. These flowers are perfect to add to any gift bag, box or make a bouqet and give them as the gift. Trust me on this-you will make someones day! Many people have emailed me asking how to make these paper flowers. I have provided the link from wedding chicks many times but I think sometimes a video might be more helpful. So today I have a little video to show you how easy these really are.
I love color and sometimes that is all you need to take a card to the next level of cuteness. This card came together super fast and I just simply love all the color! With Valentines coming up on Friday I thought I better get busy and get some valentines made today. I hope you will join in the fun. No excuses, This is super simple even if you don't have the exact same supplies I'm sure you've got something that will work.
January came and went but not too soon for me. While I've never claimed to have a perfect life - I am usually happy even when things aren't so good. But January proved to be a bit of a challenge and I have had to do some serious "me" time to determine what I want for this year and my life. I do know one thing for sure and that is I love to share here on my blog and today I am doing just that. There is really no better day to me than Valentines and it really doesn't have anything to do with being "in love" (Don't get me wrong) that is nice and all but I simply love hearts and giving fun little gifts! and it's the perfect day for both!!
