Good Friday Morning!! I am picking a winner today for my $50 Glue Arts Gift certificate!!  But first I have a few more cards to share with you.
 Recently I was sent an email telling me that the Guide To Art Schools has listed my blog as one of their top 50 cardmaking blogs, what an honor!! I want to thank everyone who has been coming to my blog from their site and hope that you will go take a look at the other blogs they feature. Click Here for the post. 
I plan on browsing the featured blogs on a slow snowy day! oh. wait. that's this whole week!
soooo, I promised some cards....
 first up.
 A card I started with some Girls Paperie and then put down as it wasn't working for me. So I finished it off,  I cut the paper to fit the card, then added the cut off diecut edge and faux stitched along the edge. I cut out the bracket shape with my Imagine ( preloaded shapes) and embossed it with the Allegro folder and popped it up with some UCutIt foam. I cut out the true love shape from a tear out journaling spot from Pink Paislee, and then added on a couple of these accordion stickers. I layered on the puffy XOXO sticker from K&Co I think? and then added a simple craft supply flower with twine and pearl. I also added on some sheer white ribbon and topped that with a button and twine.





This next card is a LOT busy for me. I had an idea that didn't work out, so basically I just kept piling stuff on til it looked full enough to be finished. Yes, sometimes I  run out of steam. And sometimes my projects just don't work out like I want them to. But I move on, that's why I love cards and small projects SO much, it's not like a layout I worked on all day, so if it doesn't work out I can deal with it.
Anyway, I layered on lots of Pink Paislee scraps, then added the Imagine cut out bracket ( preloaded shapes) and cut off just about 1/3 of it and added it to my card at the top ( popped up on UCutIt foam of course). Then I added the two coupons from My Minds Eye, the circle doily ( Wilton) and ran my seam binding ribbon- in Lettuce- across it. I cut out the sweetest day strip, popped that up and added the lime glitter Pink Paislee sticker letters, and finished it with the felt sticker from PP as well. a small brown button finished the bow for me.





Lastly for today, would you like to find out the winner of the $50 Glue Arts Gift Certificate?

I'm a big fan of the flowers with buttons on them, so I love your first card the most. I really need to start making these things. I take classes, then get to busy to think about making these super cute embellies.
