Live with Passion... and RAK!

Well, I must confess... this card I have been working on since this morning with LOTS of interruptions! All intentions to post this morning and here I am now... better late than never I guess! :)

I had this layout in my head and this past week I received my Razzleberry Lemonade DSP and Melon Mambo paper and ink pad. So I had to play with my NEW toys... *wink*!
The DSP does the work for you on this card and I just added the butterflies, sentiment and yellow gingham brad. I jazzed up the butterflies with rhinestones and wire.

The photo shows my yellow pretty bright. I used Summer Sun as I don't have all the in-colors. But it looks nice IRL!!

Now Lisa who is such a "sweet heart" from
The Craft's Meow, mailed me this amazing RAK (Random Act of Kindness) along with "2 stamps" from her big "Grand Prize" winnings from The Greeting Farm and Club Anya !! I was on Cloud 9 when I opened the package and seen what was inside. Thanks SO much Lisa for sharing your winnings and I can't wait to make a card using these CUTE images!! She always takes good care of me!! :)

Hope you found time this weekend to enjoy the weather, family & friends and STAMP! I'm behind on my commenting so I haven't forgotten about you!! I'll be popping in soon... :)

ENJOY... Michelle :)

Hi Michelle

What gorgeous colours you've chosen for your card! I love how you've let the paper do most of the work! I LOVE your little brad, how cute is that?! The attention to detail with your little gems and the antennaes on the butterflies is lovely. I really love the LO you've used. That's a great one to keep as a template for lots of different cards. Fab job!

Now, onto that gorgeous little Anya. How cute is she?!! I love the way you've used the string behind her to pull everything together and the phrase works really well with her. Fab :o)

What a fun plaid button for your first card. I like the patterned paper you chose to go with your cowgirl card.

Outstanding creations, as always Michelle! I especially love the bright happy colors of the first card. I think I *need* that dp! The second card is just too cute and the embellishments take it over the top! :)
