some random cards

Here are some cards that i whipped up last
night during my scrap night at my friends house. The first card showcases two of my favorite unity stamps. I saw an adorable card by maren bendict in the paper crafts issue jan/feb 2010. I not sure i did her work justice but i like the look of what i came up with.

On this card i am still playing with the gina k baby set.

On this last card i won a stamp of my choice from artful inkables and i choose the twilight inspired set into the moonlight. Hope you have a great day.

I entered these two cards in a couple of challengs on the stamp tv site. The first is an inspire challenge to make a card showing off your crafting style. I think my crafty style is use as much as i can and i usually find someone project and that usually jump starts my mojo.

Gina K hope for hati butterfly set.

I a butterfly gal i have shirts, stamps, even my scrap room door is covered in butterflies. So when gina k started to show off her snippets for her feb release i was all ready to order this set. It a great set with a very simple butterfly and one sentiment. The other cool thing about this set is 2.00 of the stamp sale goes to hati. Now i like when i get something scrappy and help others at the same time. My card is a total case of one the dt memebers cards that was shown during the release so if you want to be inspired like me stop by the gina k gallery at splitcoast or head on over to stamp tv. Have a great day.
