Sharing a few cards

It's been a few days since I've visited the blog but never fear!  I haven't abandoned it!  Just been a super busy weekend.  Demoing & 2SGNO was on tap for Saturday and birthday parties galore on Sunday.  Our youngest niece, Kaytey, was celebrating her 3rd birthday at Rio Vista park.  Sadly we were only able to stay a few minutes as it was my birthday too (I am sooooooo going to spoil her since she shares my birthday!) and had people coming over to grill, chill & watch football.  Mel & I went a little crazy buying presents for her (please see the above statement) and I had a blast creating her card.  I did that Saturday night.  Here it is.

Yep, that's stitching all the way around it!  Was a lot easier than you'd think.  Just remember the turtle and that slow and steady wins.  ;)  The flower is a major favorite!  I'd just cut off the long sleeves of a shirt we got in California when we visited a few months ago and figured why not use that since it was right in front of me?!  My favorite Spellbinders Nested Poinsettia dies, a big button and some tulle and viola!  While I was pretty impressed with the card, I can't say the same for Kaytey.  Though she did seem pretty taken with the baby doll, two diaper bags, swing, carrier, highchair, stroller and assorted little pieces we got for her.  Again, refer to that statement about spoiling her.  :)  The adorable outfit, not so much.  Give her time though!

Supplies: cardstock - pink - Bazzill, green - Core'dinations, button - Autumn Leaves, floss - DMC, fabric - shirt, tulle - craft store

Another recent creation was for PTI's Oct Blog Hop.  I wasn't able to get it uploaded in time for the hop but I still like it and wanted to share it.  

It's pretty simple but I think that's one of the things I like most about it.  I printed the sentiment on the computer, double framed it with the square frame from the Framed set and added a gorgeous red & black pearl & rhinestone flourish.  Hard to see in the crooked scan but it's on a white 5x7 card base.

Supplies: card base & env - TPC Studios, cardstock - WorldWin, ink - TPC Studios, flourish - Prima, stamps - PTI, font - CK
