Warm Wishes

First of all a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to Kellie from Kards by Kellie for giving me a "stinking cute" blog award!!! What a dear blogger friend she is so everyone go visit her wonderful blog!  Now on to a new card.  It's summer so here is my take on sunshine and blue skies:



I hadn't used my Country Life Cartridge since I had purchased it and it has so many cute graphics.  I love the sunshine coming up over the hill.  It is just so cheery and I also used the sheep from this cart because you NEED sheep grazing on a hillside!!  Another thing I like about this cartridge is the great alphabet and word selection.  They are also not as hard as some to cut out and keep in one piece.  I cut the words out at 1" and they hung together pretty well.  Here are my supplies:
  • Country Life Cart: sunshine and hillside, sheep and words
  • Paper by K&Company (jeepers I love their paper!)
  • VersaMagic Chalk Ink and Distress ink in Antique linen
  • Bakers Twine in black and white, 2 buttons
  • Inside original words done on computer
Thanks for stopping by.  I won't get another card done til next week so have a GREAT weekend and thanks to you WONDERFUL blogger friends who helped put me over 50 followers!!! 100 here I come!!!  I have entered this card in the following challenges:
  1. The Kraft Journal  - Make it Monday: something borrowed or something blue
  2. Paper Playtime Ch#50 - Summer
  3. Party Time Tuesday PTT #24 - Blue Skies and Sunshine
  4. My Sheri Crafts Challenge #64 - Faithful companions (yes a sheep is a companion)
  5. City Crafter Challenge Blog Week #63 - Let the Sunshine In

Hi Cindy, I just love your card...I've got the same cartridge and have not used it! Thankyou so much for the inspiration, I'm going to dust it off and get creating. Your butterfly card on the previous post is just beautiful, I love white on white with all that embossing:)
