Happy NSD!!

Did you get to scrap today?? I did - well I made a few cards and have a couple of layouts in the works. I also made another "card" that I can only tease with at the moment! lol

Anyway - here's what I have for you:

This first one is for Paper Blooms. It was an inspirational challenge. I saw this red DP and immediately thought of this challenge - thought it was the perfect paper! I had a picture of this card in my head - which probably means I saw it somewhere but I don't remember where/who it was otherwise I would be more than happy to give credit. I am sure tons of people have done this before I saw it though (making petals out of ovals)...I probably should have thought of it myself!

All the papers on this came from the old ScrapJammies kit except for the green stem - which is CTMH textured cardstock. The "Love" sentiment is PTI.

The second one I am loving!! I have seen these all over the place and this is my first opportunity to try it. It's for Our Creative Corner - they asked for something for Mother's Day. So I made it my time to make the Flower Pot Card. It is the CUTEST thing!! I didn't realize it was as small as it is! It will fit into an A2 envelope! (Well, mine my not because that top flower might be just a smidgen too high!) Oh well...I also just realized that Jennifer on the OCC Design team did the same card - oops! I assume that just means it's a REALLY good idea! LOL

On the inside - you have Happy Mother's Day sentiment and a daisy that was "stamped off" to give it the lighter coloration.

I am not 100% sure who makes the DP on this. The cardstock, stamps and ribbon on this is CTMH. Glitter is Martha Stewart.

And lastly, Scrappy Frogs asked for spring flowers. I think both of these work for that particular challenge!!

As always, thanks for stopping by - I have a couple more things I need to get done, so you might see more from me today.

This is so sweet. I made the same type of card for my MIL! I adore how you have one flower actually stuck to the flower pot!! So cute!
I, too, was shocked at tiny and cute these are in real life. I thought they were much bigger! Thanks for joining us at OCC this week!
