First Post of 2010

Hi Everyone! I am finally feeling back to normal, after about 2 weeks of fighting a bug. I was so excited to spend some time in my craft room yesterday making a couple of cards.

First up, I decided to participate in The Play Date Cafe challenge. Here are the colors:

And I decided to use the sketch from The Pink Elephant:

Here is my submission:

I really felt like making something not related to winter or the holidays! Plus I hadn't played with the new Blooming Button Bits set from Papertrey Ink.

The picture above shows some of the images from that set. I added some extra buttons and gems for some sparkle.

This bow is a little over the top!

The next challenge I tackled was the current challenge over at Mojo Monday:

Here is my card.

My Mom gave me all kinds of Papertrey Ink goodies for Christmas, and I just had to get them out!

These buttons are PTI Spring Moss. I have had that ink for awhile, but hadn't gotten the buttons yet - Thanks Mom!

And she gave me the Vintage Labels stamp set. These stamps coordinate with the Nestabilities Labels one set perfectly! The flower in the corner is made up of a few plain Prima flowers that I stamped with one of the little images from the Vintage Labels set. And I used the iTop with the background paper for the big brad in the middle.

Thanks so much for looking!
