Morning... Kindness!

Happy Tuesday everyone!! Today I have a "Kindness" card to share that was made at one of Julie's SU! card classes!!

First I want to inform you that the next 4 weeks or so I'll be working excessive hours and may not have very detailed cards to share. I will be posting simple and quick ones... I'm so sorry as I enjoy trying new things, but the time just won't be there to stamp as I like. I'll do my best to keep the "EYE CANDY" flowing!! :)

Now, let's get to the important stuff... the card! :) For the flower vases we used the SU! Large Oval punch with the ends cut off. Then shaded the pots with Craft White on one side and the ink to match the paper on the other side. (Click on photo to get a close up view!!) We used the SU! Boho Blossoms punch for the flower and using a white gel pen for the center. Added a stem using SU! Old Olive marker. To give more shading we used the aqua painter with Baja Breeze ink for added depth.... just so fun and springy! Gets me in the spring time mood!!

Thanks for the visit as I just {{LOVE}} it when you do my stampin' friends. Enjoy your day!!

Michelle :)

SO CUTE!!! Sometimes the simpler cards are the best! As for your comment about having to work excessive hours in the next 4 weeks, I think you should tell your employer that you have better things to do. After all, what's more important - working or STAMPING?! :-)

Beautiful card! I love my boho blossoms punch. You have given me another great way to use it. Thanks for the inspiration.

This is so stinkin cute, Michelle! I love those vases... I'll have to give that a try. And the colors are wonderful... they really pop.

Here's hoping that the month will fly by so that you can get back some of your free time and stamp more! I just wish sleep were optional. heehee

Gorgeous card! I love the colors and LO!

As far as your blog is concerned, #1--I love CAS cards, so that won't be a problem. #2--DON'T apologize! It's your blog. Do what YOU want. :)

Welcome Spring... oh how I wish it were true. This card reminds me of spring. Very pretty colours. Baja Breeze is one of my favourite colours.

FYI...I love quick and simple so bring on those cards.

Love it! I love the simplicity of it. Your color choices are awesome. The whole card says spring. I can almost see that spring breeze rustling the flowers in their lil' pots. Too cute!

Emily said...

This card is just too adorable! Love the spring-like colors and the simplicity of it. I think the piercing really pops the picture out. I'm going to have to do some more of that on my cards.
