Another Card...

Can you believe it - I am back again. Twice in one week!!! I wanted to share a card I did for a swap over on Splitcoaststampers. I came across a card like this during my blog hopping and can not find where I originally saw this. I have searched my google reader but have had no luck.

The only requirement was to use a flower image. So I choose my Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder and some "flowery" dsp. Don't you just love the layout of the card? I really like how the folds overlap each other. It was truly easy to create this card. Darn I wish I had written down where I got the idea from-I hate not being able to credit people for the wonderful creativity. If you know-let me know, and I will definitely update this post.
I really need to stop taking pictures in my cubicle at workas well. The lighting sucks, the background is ugly, oh I can go on and on...

Where the Heck Have You Been?

I am pretty sure that is what most of you are saying-LOL. And believe me, that is what I have been saying to myself lately as well. It's been a crazy first quarter, but I have so missed creating and blogging. I have done a few cards lately; I did two swaps and a baby shower card. Now ask me did I remember to take a picture...nooooooo...and they were some really cute cards.

But here is a card I did last night. I was just in the mood to create something and I have been coming across so many nice and simple cards lately that I thought I would put together a quick one.

I used my favorite paper of the moment, Sweet Pea. The stamp set is Vintage Vogue, another one of my favorites at the moment. I am a big hoarder when it comes to buttons, brads, and ribbon, so I was pretty pleased with myself that I used a felt flower, a corduroy button, and a regular button. I even played around with the new SU punch. You really need your muscles for the new punches. They are really heavy to me, or am I just a weakling?

I promise to be back real soon.
