March Already!

It's hard to believe March is here already, especially since winter never made much of an appearance.  Most are happy about that, but I did miss the snow.  The light coating we got a couple of times doesn't count!

Anyway, I have two cards to share today.  The first card uses K&Co Life's Journey papers, Making Memories stickers, and a Martha Stewart embossed zig zag punch.  The solid color zig zag strips are from Bazzill cardstock.  I used a PTI stamp on the smaller tag and attached it with a piece of twine to two layered buttons.

For the envelope, I created a zig zag strip on the left hand side and stamped the envelope with a stamp from Hero Arts.  Sepia color ink from Versa Fine was used for the stamping.

The second card uses papers from My Mind's Eye, a Petaloo flower, and a sentiment from PTI.  I made this for a sweet friend who I met through blogging that is going through a rough patch right now.  I used a Martha Stewart lace edge punch on some scraps of solid tan cardstock I had to dress up the card a bit as well as on a piece of MME paper.  The ribbon was on a spool in the dollar bin at Michael's.

That's it for today.  I do have some thank you cards to share later this weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by and especially thank you to those who leave a sweet comment.  I do love hearing from you.  Enjoy your weekend!

Addendum:  I'm just looking at this last card and it looks like the ribbon doesn't match the papers.  In real life they are exactly the same colors.  I guess it didn't photograph well.

  5. Your cards are beautiful, Patty! Love, love, love the strips and zig zags on the first card. The chevron look is so hot right now, and this card reminds me of that. And LOVE the layered scallops on the second card. You are totally rocking the patterned papers here, my friend. :)
