Flowers & Swirlys... O'My!

Hello stampin' friends! Hope you are having a super day and enjoying some spring time weather... :)

This is what has inspired me to show you these cards. The card on the left I made a while back, but this morning I made the 2nd one using another color twist, but using the same DP. I changed the direction of the DP as you can see the lines both horizontal and vertical. I'm on a "ROLL" using my SU! Jumbo "So Swirly" wheel. LOL!

Such a Clean & Simple card to make. (CAS) Plus I love using up scraps of DP's when I can. I added one rhinestone for a bit of bling on each card. Next I layered my sentiment "behind" the scallop circle for more of a layered look. (Kinda hard to see in the photo, click on the photo's to get a closer look if you like!!)

Now I'm off to give Cooper, our golden retriever, a walk. He's been itching for one all morning... LOL! It's warming up in central Minnesota. I hope my cards put a SMILE on your face and give you the feeling of what's to come... SPRING!

Thanks for the visit and lovely comments!! Smiles everyone...

Michelle :)

Oh so pretty, Michelle! I love them both equally. They definitely put a smile on my face... especially after a long day at work.

I've been working on last minute Easter cards. Will have some up to share soon.

Hugs, my friend! (and a pat on the head and scratch behind the ears for Cooper)
