A Couple of Cards

It's another rainy day here.  I'm still waiting for a significant snowfall!  Not looking like it will be this week.  In the meantime, I have two cards to share today.

First up is this sweet little My Besties image which was colored with Copics and highlighted with Stickles.  She was diecut with a Wild Rose Studio frame which I inked the edges in Vintage Photo and Inka Gold touches.  The gold accent white lace was a gift.  The flowers are Recollections and were given a touch of Stickles.  The gold and white twine is Recollections as well.  The paper background is Pion Design.  Gold beads add a finishing touch.

Next is a quick card I made using some scraps I had.  The paper, chipboard and label are Bo Bunny.  The doily is Wilton.  The purple swirl and the flowers are Recollections.  The navy pearls are Queen and Co.  The seam binding ribbon is from Martha Stewart.

Well, that's all I have to share today.  I have been working on some Valentine projects which I will share soon.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend and have a wonderful week ahead.  Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind comments.


  1. These look great Patty! Your colouring on your bestie image is wonderful! Have a good week!

  2. You first card is beautiful Patty, the image is just darling. I am really loving the second card. The layout is so unique, I just adore the design of squares down the middle and the wonderful layers of shapes and doily underneath! So pretty!!

    It's nice to meet someone else who enjoys winter. It's been quite a let down for me again this year. I was so looking forward to winters in our new nature surrounded home, but it's so drab outside, the fun of going for a walk in the mud is just not that high for me. lol. Maybe this week my friend, I keep my fingers crossed for us both! hugs :)

  3. I know I have said it before Patty but your colouring of the Besties is just stunning. Another 2 fab cards. Thanks so much for all your visits to my blog, I really appreciate them.
    Hugs, Julie x

  7. Sweet cards, my friend! Your little Besties girl is so adorable! Love the fancy die cut frame and all the gold accents. And way to rock your scraps! You are making me fall in love with purple! <3

Thank you for your patient love and for inspiring me so richly tonight. :)
