Stop And Smell The Flowers

I altered this candle a few months ago for a coworkers birthday. I am just now posting it to my blog because I hadn't taken a picture of it earlier, but now that I have my handy iphone I can do those things! This is just a candle I bought at Wal-Mart. I then took some Close To My Heart paper from the Seredipidity collection (I think), and just cut it to fit the candle. The flowers were precut images on a sheet of textured cardstock. So, it really couldn't have come together any easier.

Make a Wish

When I was thinking of this card, I wanted to do a white base with a little splash of color. I didn't want to make it girly because I have two guys I have to make cards for. I think it turned out ok. Hope you like it. I used cardstock from my stash, stamps and ink from Close To My Heart and the stars are cut out of Close To My Heart patterned paper.

PTI Color Challenge

Over at PTI Nichole is having another challenge. This time the Design Team members picked their favorite color combos, and you needed to pick one or all of the combos to create a project. I chose Dawn Mcvey's color favorites.

I then came up with a fun card using mostly Close To My Heart supplies. Hope you like it.

You still have time to play along. The contest doesn't end until tomorrow morning.

Couldn't Resist

That is I couldn't resist trying the emboss resist technique contest that Nichole Heady over at Papertreyink is throwing. If you create a embossed resist project and post a link to it on her website you have a chance at winning an amazing prize from PTI. Don't delay though because you only have until tomorrow morning to link it to her website.

Here is my creation. We have several birthdays in February in our family so you will be seeing a lot of cards in my next few post. If you see something that you might like to try at a workshop let me know.

Cardstock and ribbon are stuff I had in my stash. Ink, stamps and bling are from Close To My Heart.
