Might As Well Stamp!

     The Nor-Easter is knocking on the door, no reason to go anywhere, so I might as well keep stamping.  For our friends to the north, please be safe.


     My first card is for Joan's Gardens Challenge Week #5.  Here are the details for this weeks challenge.

Use blue, green, and white.  Check!
Use an oval.  Check, it's a SB!
Use a printed flower.  Mine has polka dots in blue from Prima!
Use a stamped sentiment.  Mine is from Clear Dollar Stamps

     I also used my new Memory Box Resting Bird dies, with an Amuse Bare Branch with Leaves stamp.  One of my newest addictions is the Bo Bunny Double Dots paper. Eek, they make the cutest cards!  There are felt leaves and a pearl head brad as embellishments.


     My second photo is of cards that I made for the Mid Week Throwdown over on the Stars and Stamps Blog.  This week they are requesting cards that our troops can send home to their children.  I used colored images from Dearie Dolls, that I sent into my print program so I could add sentiments.  My papers are also Bo Bunny Double Dots.  For embellishments I used bakers twine, buttons, and a little Glossy Accents.

      Thanks for stopping bye, and I will be back a bit later with my Friends with Flair stampings for this week!

What a super nice card with those darling little birds and your papers, flowers and leaves. I also love the children's cards and so with the recipients. They are no nice and cheery. Stay safe. We are bracing for 26-32 inches now. I've stocked up on everything I need, so my "babies" and I will snuggle next to the fire when the power goes out. Hubby is off working the storm as usual.
