What Lies Within Us

Happy Monday!
I was able to spend some time at my craft table again this weekend and made a card for the Power Poppy Peep of the week challenge.
While I was checking out the new challenge I was excited to see that my entry for the last weeks challenge was selected as Peep of the Week!!

I used the Good Thinking Renewal Stamp set! I love all of the sentiments and quotes in the set but this one by Ralph Waldo Emerson is my favorite! 
I wanted the quote to be the focal point of the card so I did not add any images and kept the embellishments to the ribbons and flowers. 
The pattern papers are My Minds Eye Oxford Lane. 

Thanks for visiting!

Just a Note...

Happy Wednesday!
I have another card to share with you today using Reverse Confetti stamps and dies.

I used the stamps from Class Act and these dies on my card Doin' the Wave, and Class Act. The pattern papers are from my stash. I used colors from Reverse Confetti's June color challenge. I love that color combo, don't you!

Thanks for stopping by! I am off to work on my resume. I found out last week that I have to re-apply for my job and if I am not offered an interview or a job after the interview, I am no longer employed! Yikes huh?!!

Pretty in Pink

Have you heard of Power Poppy stamps? This is a fairly new company created by Marcella Hawley and has instantly become another favorite for me! 

These gorgeous flowers are from the Azalea stamp set. I colored the azalea's with copics and used Spellbinders large ovals to cut it out. The papers are some scraps from older packs of Basic Grey pattern papers. I wanted to keep the azalea's the main focus so I did not add any embellishments other than the paper doily tucked behind the image.
I need to practice photographing and editing my cards as it seems like I forgot how to do that. In real life the flowers do not look like they are glowing. lol! 

I am entering my card in this weeks Peeps of the Week challenge at Power Poppy.
