Boo-Kay

Today is my day over on the 365 Cards blog.

The Challenge?

Create a bouquet of flowers on your card.

I've been neglecting my In Bloom set {gasp! say it isn't so!!} and decided to ink'er up thanks to all the fabbie inspiration from Maile Belles and Kelley Eubanks!!

I used a square Fabriano card and paper piece the lovely bloom. The stitched ribbon is actually from the M's $ bin....love that! The button is PTI, the twine is SU. So, are your wheels turning...thinking of a great idea for the

I'm going to multi-task and also show you my take on CP#38:
This is such a GREAT sketch...I put together Jillibean, Hambly and A Muse:

Seriously, who can resist black & kraft with a smidge of glitter??!!

Earlier this week I was trying to recuperate from the Gift Show...the multiple soccer games in different towns...a sick kid. Realistically, I should have spent Sunday cleaning/organizing my home but I had invited my friend LB over to be crafty with me...we wanted to work on a certain project...I was making mine for me...not for anyone else but me. It always seems like I'm making projects for someone else...usually a birthday gift...and never something that I keep.

Here's a sneaky peek of it:

Any guesses as to what it is? LOL...it shouldn't be too difficult to figure out. What if I put up a smidge of blog candy...what? 2 blog candies in 1 week? Aha...but these are fat-free my friends...how about a set of this? Those of you that have been following me know my love of Sassy stuff:) Let's pick Friday, October 30th by 11:50 Pacific Daylight time...that's the deadline to post your comment with your guess. I'll draw a name out of the correct answers and post the winner on Saturday...Halloween!

BTW, I'll post a pic of the entire project later...maybe on Halloween...it's almost complete!

  1. Wow...lovely cards, Amy!! I have that Jilibean Soup paper too...it's from my Scarlet Lime kit :)

    Gee...Sheila showed me the felt stickers just 2 weeks ago but I don't remember who made them. Was it Sassafrass? Or Basic Grey? Seriously, I don't remember...just a wild guess :)

    A magnetic calendar counting the days to Christmas?

  11. Amy, WOWZA fabulous cards and I also love that first one. My bad I haven't used my bloom set in a long time either.

  16. Dearie.... Love love love your cards!

    Now that that's out of the way .... hmmmm, I'm guessing a magnetic calendar board? Those embellish looks Christmassy but I'm sure you'll spin something up and be able to use it all year round :P

    So, is it a magnetic calendar board with pretty embellished magnets? :D

  20. Hey Amy! Firstly, your In Bloom card totally rocks! I love the decoupaged bloom and it goes so well with your bargain ribbon - bonus!
    Well you just can't go wrong with Kraft, Black and sparkles on a card can you so I love your second card too!
    As for a guess on your project - my mind thought advent calendar but now I'm thinking is that's too obvious?! Well I'll stick with it anyways! LOL!
