bad blogger...

I'm a horrible blogger. I know this. I always think of posting and then something else happens... and then I forget and, well, it's weeks between posts. I don't have a lot to say these days, but here are some cards I've been working on lately:

Tangerine Tango & the Manhattan Flower embossing folder - love it!

SAB paper and my newest set, A Rose Is A Rose... I'm not normally one for pastel colours, but this rose uses Barely Banana and So Saffron, and I think it's fabulous!

Another one with the Manhattan Flower embossing folder... this one has just a bit of glitter on the embossed flower, and then a strip of patterned paper added to the side and voila! And, yes, it's PINK!

I love love love the Daisies #2 die! Love it! I'm using it to make tangerine daisies for my wedding invitations... I'm making them with the smallest and largest sizes on the die, which leaves me with scads of the middle size left over. So, this card uses the middle size daises, the Fine Supernova glitter in Chocolate Chip, and the Chocolate Chip corduroy buttons.

These are the lilies from the Fifth Avenue Floral set, cut out & the middle one popped up. I curled the edges with my fingers for a little dimension. I CASEd this idea (for the cut out lilies) from someone on Splitcoast, I think, but I can't remember what the original card looked like exactly!

Another daisy card... this time I used the Fine Supernova glitter in Tangerine Tango for the smaller daisy in the center, and I love the look!

Those are great cards! I see you did some cutting, must have been before someone one ate your scissors.
