Our Thoughts

I spent the day yesterday at a 12-hour MS crop.  The organizers of this crop are just marvelous women - a mother and two daughters - and it was a perfect day!  I was able to spend time with old friends and new friends, and I even managed to get a couple of projects done!  I thought I would share them with during the next couple of days.

The first is a card that was inspired by the shaped card challenge at Creative Cutter Room and Mojo Monday's sketch.



As you can see, I chose the square option.  Well, kind of!  I used the bracket square card from the Art Philosophy cartridge.  (Don't forget, you can get the Art Philosophy collection FREE this month from Close To My Heart!  Read the details HERE!) In fact, the border and flowers were also cut with the cartridge.  I love that there are just so many things that can be done with this versatile cartridge!  I also used Pemberley paper, A Blossom stamp set, Wooden Garden Shapes, Crocheted Colonial White ribbon, and a round stud for the center of the flower.

I'll be back tomorrow with a fun Easter project!

VERY neat. Is the front flap a partial? I can't tell. Part of me thinks it is and part of me doesn't. Anyway, it inspired me to think "partial" as a new way to use the AP cards. Thank you for getting those wheels in my head turning today. I really needed a dose of inspiration. This card is really beautiful. :-)
