In conclusion ...

This may be my final post for a bit, as the Christmas holiday break is over and reality starts on Monday. I'd like to say "I'll make time  for crafting", but I know that that could be a lie. I am the type of person who has difficulty juggling being a wife, mom, full time teacher, and crafter ... and when something has to "give", that something is crafting. Anyhow, that being said ... here's my cards to show you today:

It's Five for Friday at 365 Cards. During the cleaning of my craft room, I discovered a baggie of flowers and buttons, obviously from some swap long forgotten. Well, the baggie of goodies came in handy as I created a card for this challenge.

Five for Friday means things should appear on the card in fives...

So, here's my take on that challenge:

1 - five pink flowers with five pink buttons
2 - five green flowers
3 - five stamped flourishes
4 - five rhinestones embellishing the flourishes
5 - five letters in the word SMILE
6 - five stamped "smile" sentiments
7 - five small rhinestones amidst the flourishes
Supplies - All embellishments from the stash, unknown sources. CTMH Playful Flourishes stamp set.

Then, it's Stamping Saturday at 365 Cards. The challenge is to stamp on ribbon. I stamped on twill for this challenge. Now that I look at it, I think I will add some small rhinestones onto the ribbon between the stamped words.

Supplies: All CTMH. Embellishments - clear sparkles. Twill ribbon. Stamp sets - Solo W, It's Your Day. Colors - Hydrangea, Sunny yellow, Star spangled blue, Clover meadow, Holiday red.

  1. Hi Maricar - LOVELY cards! I just love the 5 for Friday one - with the flowers and flourishes, it's so pretty! I'm a bit sad about going back to work tomorrow, too. But, work is good - the things I do are valuable and I feel needed there.
