You Quack Me Up

So I'm on the fence about this card.  While I think the duck is the cutest I'm not sure about the rest.  I'll try to explain what I was going for.  The bg paper was chosen to represent the water, along with the foilage you would see growing around a pond without being literal.  I added the 2 scallop borders to try to represent the flow of water and the orange panel was to add a sense of warmth around all the cool blue.  Sometimes I look at it and think yep it turned out ok and then other times its missing something.  Maybe if I dig in my stash I can find a little bobble or something to add as an embellishment somewhere.  What do you think? 

Thanks for stopping.  Hope you're having a great summer.  See you next week.

Friendships are Sewn One Stitch at a Time

I picked up this cute little sewing set at JoAnns back in April.  I just couldn't pass up this saying.  This is one of the new cling sets J's is carrying.  Here's the details ... The base is white, layered with SU crumb cake.  I took a piece of scrap red stripe paper most likely DCWV and layered in the center.  The spool was stamped with stazon and colored with markers.  I stamped the scissors and tape measure, colored them then cut them out.  The 2 edge punches are both SU.  Today's post is short and sweet.  Thanks for stopping by.

This is such a lovely sentiment from Verve.  I saw a card made that paired this sentiment and the bird image together and thought it was beautiful together.  However my card ... I'm unsure how I feel about it.  I look at it and like it then I look again and think "eh".  So its a love/hate relationship right now. The colors were chosen from the dp.  I pulled the colores from the swirl up the side and used black, bermuda bay and just a touch of celery.  The branch at the top is SU Watercolor trio stamped and cut out and then I added some bermuda bay flowers to it.  Not exactly sure I'm loving it.  I do however like this color combo and will have to add it to my memory file to use again.

Thanks for looking.  Have a great day and I always appreciate your comments.

Treasure It

Today's card is actually one I used for Mother's day this year.  In trying to use what you have theme I broke out a dusty set from TAC called Treasure It for the large flower.  The small flower is from Verve's Feel the Sun along with the sentiment.  I did use some new paper I picked up from DCWV and I have to say its a new stack I'm in love with called Lemon Flower.  The papers are so pretty I really had to force myself to cut these 2 pieces up.  The yellow is SU's daffodil delight and I've mentioned before its my new fav yellow.  I colored the flowers with SU markers and added some black stickles to the center.  The butterfly is a MS punch.

Hope you're having a great summer and thanks for taking the time to stop and leave me comments.  Have a great day.

Happy Fourth of July

I know I'm a day early but Happy Fourth of July.  I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday and have some great picnics planned, barring the weather holds out.  Today's post is short and sweet. 
Here's what I used white base, old dcwv dp.  Basket, flowers, butterfly all from Verve Chicks Rule set.  The sentiment is SU punched out with the oval punch.  Flowers and basket were colored with SU markers. 

Thanks for stopping by, have a safe and happy holiday
