Oldie But Goodie

I'm tired and home sick, all because of LifeHouse. Well, not really. It's all because of my sister Penny....just kidding. She actually asked me months ago to see LifeHouse and I graciously said yes because there will be a time when I'll be asking her a favor... like going to see Keith Urban Drooling Bouncy Smiley (<--- that's actually me every time I say his name, well, minus the drool) next week. I can't wait and yes, I'm dragging her to see Mr. Urban. Here's Jason Wade, the lead singer of the band. She thinks he's a hottie and that he was singing to her all night long...LOL! (and yes, when she reads this she'll say... BUT HE WAS!)

Here are two cards I created a couple of weeks ago and again forgot to post. I wanted to use these ribbons that I bought at Michael's $ bin (not bad for 3 yards). So, that's where the color combination came from. Both images on both cards are from a retired Stampin' Up stamp set Blooming with Happiness.

For the first card, the dress is stamped on a Whisper White card stock with Jet Black Staz-on ink and water-colored with Green Galore classic ink. Some of the flowers on the dress are covered with Crystal Stickles, layered with Real Red and Chocolate Chip card stock and punched the corners with corner ticket punch. Card base is Green Galore card stock and stamped flowers randomly with Versamark ink. The sentiment is from the same set also.
Again, I used the same colors from the ribbon. Cake was stamped on Very Vanilla card stock and punched using Marvy Mega circle punch, water-colored with Rose Red, Bashful Blue, Chocolate Chip classic ink and layered Rose Red card stock with Marvy Scallop Giga punch. Rose Red card stock and Bashful Blue card stock was run through Cuttlebug using Divine Swirl folder and layered with Chocolate Chip card stock.
