Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends!
Countdown Till We See The Grandkids - 4 Days!
I'm at ALL SYSTEMS GO.......and......FULL SPEED AHEAD today as I race around getting things in place for our upcoming trip back to Wisconsin. LORDY.....there's lots to do! I'm spending the day today with MANY of my SaddleBrooke GalPals and we are making Cards for the Troops with our Stamping Friend Maureen. She hosts a yearly event in memory of her son Bill who was killed as a result of a hit and run accident. This year we are prepping the card packets at the Little House and today is one of the three days I'm free to join in the fun.
My cards today are those that we created at Stamp Club last Saturday. Check these cutie out.....
We used Elegant Eggplant and Very Vanilla cardstock to create the layers for our card......and then we used Elegant Eggplant and Summer Starfruit ink to stamp our images. Our images were stamped with the Everything Eleanor stamp sets........And this is one set which I am totally thrilled that I purchased fron the new catalog.
Our 3x3 flower idea came from fellow SU demonstrator Erin Gonzales. She made her card an A2 style card and I just wanted to create one of these fun little folded flowers and pop it on a 3x3 card.
We used the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and framelits die to create our sentiment across the bottom of our card and added a couple of thin slivers of cardstock to the top petal of our flower and wrapped a pencil around the cardstock to create a curly piece coming out of our flower. This card was lots of fun to make and the best part of it is you have lots of wiggly room at the center of your flower - because of all the circle layers that go into the center of your flower. FUN FUN CARD!
Thanks for joining me today - I've got a SUPER BUSY day planned out today and plan to put my nose to the grindstone tomorrow in order to get all my last minute things DONE. Hope you can join me tomorrow for more Kards by Kadie. Keep Living Your Dream!
