You make me smile...

Hello and Happy Wednesday! I hope you're all having a great week. I made today's card and I *think* I may have my mojo back. It all fell together quite nicely once I got started. The loosely sketch follows this weeks Mojo Monday sketch, seen here:


I tried to stay exact with the sketch, but it just worked better this way. Hope that's okay! :)

Here is my card:



Here is a closeup of the ladybug spots. I added crystal effects to them. 


More crystal effects on the flowers, too!





I also have another card to show you that. Yep, that's right...tonight's a two-fer!

I made this card for a friend who has lost an aunt unexpectedly, not too long after losing both parents. Ugh..it's just a really difficult situation. :(



It doesn't fit within any challenges or anything...I just made it with my heart.

Ok, well that's all from me tonight. Hope you are having a great day. Get some rest - tomorrow night is the Papertrey release for October! Woot!

Okay, I hope you haven't answered this a million times, but how do you do your gathered ribbon?

Beautiful Kev!!! The crystal effects are fab on the first card and I love the colors on the second one and for sure it was made with love!!! Is that a stamp or is that image paper ?? Love the ribbon as well on the 2nd one!!!

Dana said...

Oh wow, the crystal effects really five that first card a POP. And I adore the last card...simple, but elegant and just lovely. You rock with gathered ribbon!
