a couple of cards

I got about 30 minutes to play around today and managed to whip up 2 cards. I wanted to work on a couple of other things but I was needing the instant satisfaction of a card today...lol

I used sketch 12 over at Midnight Madness for this one. I also used the corner flourish rubber stamp from kits 2 remember. I love this stamp. I wish you could see it better, it ended up with most of it covered by the time I got done adding the flowers. No worries you will be able to see it on another project this week or check it out HERE. After I was done with the card I spritzed the entire card lightly with gold glimmer mist. I found a friendship quote online and then altered it some in Word. I like the way it turned out. I was going to post it here as a freebie but haven't figure it out yet...lol. If you would like me to send it to you just email me at rlhudson94@hotmail.com

When I first saw this sketch I was a little hesitant. I am horrible with tags. Now that it is done I am loving it! I see me using this one again and again.

supplies: K&Co pp and tag, cs??, DCWV flower brad, Prima small flowers, Kits2Remember rubber stamp, Tattered Angels glimmer mist, Ranger distress ink, Making Memories pins, fabric flowers, lace, ribbon, quote off internet.

This one is for several challenges.

Midnight Madness-sketch
Whimsy Stamps-friendship
Dutch Dare-lace
Little Yellow Challenge-lace and pearls
2 Red Bananas-quote as main feature
One Stop-swirls and pearls (hope it works eventhough most of the swirls are covered. swirl stamp and swirls in the paper)
Pile it on-at least 3 flowers

Spoonful of Sugar-flower frenzy

Closeup of the details.

This one I am not so sure about. I made it for a friend who picked out the papers, wanted circles and no flowers. She loves it I am not so sure about it. What do you think? Be honest I can handle it...lol.
