Two Cards Same Challenge

A productive day today! Don't you just love days like that...I sure do. I got everyone off to school this morning and then my little friend Ethan came for the day (8:40 am-5:20pm). Laughing today was good and the sun felt even better. I played outside a little bit with Ethan. For supper I cranked up our BBQ and made hambugers. Laundry, dusting, pulling out an old afghan, changing my blog page, reading, playing outside, shopping, supper, kids in bed equalled a chance to finish my card and make another one. Just gotta love that!

Samantha and the rest of the gain over at the Scrapmaster's Paradise is holding their very first Blog Hop! I was so excited when I saw these colors yesterday. OH...the idea's running through my head all night...if only I could magically do them as I was thinking them up in my dreams...LOL. Congratulations to the Great DT's and Samantha the Creator of Scrapmaster Paradise, it truly is a wonderful blog. Enough with my novel...and onto my cards. I loved these colors so much I made two different cards.
Here is my big flower card. I had to rearrange this card a few times to get what I wanted. My recycled bit of product was my twist tie in the middle of the button. We were getting rid of some art that my daughter had done (and didn't want) so I promptly pulled this off one of her flowers. It was her idea totally not mine.Recipe: Big Blossom and Friendship Blooms (both SU);Tempting Turquiose, Green Galore, Whisper White; Basic Black and Tempting Turquiose; dazzling diamonds, glue pen, twist tie, button, pearls, Martha Stewart punch, and scalloped edge trim punch (SU)

My second card I was itching to make during the first one...LOL. Talk about learning patience. I also learned have a sharp blade in your cutter if you want things straight...LOL. This Verve verus in one of my fav's.

Recipe: Forever in our Hearts and Happiness Found (both Verve); Versa Fine (Black), Green Galore; DSP, Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Whisper White; Swiss Dots folder, Top Note (SU), paper piercing.

What a great Monday, wishing you all a great day tomorrow and thanks for stopping in. I hope you enjoyed the cards. Thanks Samantha for the wonderful color challenge and a great blog hop. Tomorrow is another busy day, but I do hope I have some time to create card.

Happy Crafting!!!
