You're in my thoughts

Today a card with a bit of a grey sky, as we see today. I don't use grey so often, but this card proves it can work. And it even isn't that sombre. The red and craft gives it just that little bit of fressness wich makes it fun to see.

I really love this sailing boat! I used it already more often, and it makes me happy, every time I make a card with it.
It is cut out with my Cricut machine with the "Life is a Beach" cartridge.
The clouds are stamped with a Hero Arts Stamp and so are the stripes on the waves and the sentiment.

Honoring Ombre

Today a fun card for the Moxie Fab World Challenge: "Honoring Ombre".
Here is the inspirational photo.

And here is the card I made after seeing the photo above.
I really loved the colors. And besides that: I had to think of birthdays. Now, we are in birthday celebrations these days, because my son and my daughter and my husband are celebrating their birthdays all in two weeks!
That means a whole lot of birthday cakes :)

Hope you like my card and see the connection between the inspirational photo and this card. All stamps are Hero Arts: the birthday hats, the butterfly and the Happy Birthday wish.

Just for fun

Today I like to show a birthday card I made just for fun.
It is always good to have some birthday cards on hand!
Looking around on blogs I was inspired to make a card with three flowers. Don't ask me were I saw it, but I liked the idea and gave it my own twist.

The flowers are cut with my Cricut. Used the "A Mothers Day Bouquet" cartridge. The heart of the middle flower is a stamped spool sentiment by Maya Road. The heart of the flower on the right is a stamped button from a little stampset by Hero Arts "Sew Original" CL397. The stamped button on the left is from a SSS stamp set. In the background a stamp by Hero Arts "Old Letter" CG197.The butterfy is a Martha Steward punch. And the Happy birthday wish is also from a stampset by Hero Arts CL139.
Paper is from My Mind's Eye.
Hope you like it!
