Just had to share these two cute cards!

I'm so proud of these two. Sometimes I make things that I'm happy with. Sometimes I make things and I'm glad when they're done. But these two, these two, I had a lot of fun making and I absolutely love the final results!

The first one took a while and I admit it's a total scraplift from Vicki Wizniuk, whom I think is so completely talented. She wows me all the time. When I saw this card I knew it would be perfect for my nephew, Noah, for his 5th birthday. I didn't have the same paper she used, so I just flipped my cardstock over and dry embossed some dots with my stylus and then sanded them ever so slightly to make stars. I also love the moon and I'm happy to be able to use my Cuttlebug for the embossing. Then I sponged some Desert Sand ink on top. So fun! Thanks Vicki, for all the inspiration.

All products CTMH: Twilight, Cranberry and Outdoor Denim cardstock,
Good Times paper and stickese, Reach for the Stars stamp set.

The next card is the one I made for my mom. Although I had a Mother's Day card already, it was simple, but nice, and my mom deserves more than just simple but nice. I wanted to make one that was really special. I had seen a lot of these flower pot cards and decided that it was perfect for her. It was a whole lot easier than I thought it would be. The hardest part was figuring out how to score it on my new trimmer. (I know, I make enough cards I should have it figured out, but I'm still learning.) The inside card comes out all the way, but I didn't want my personal message to my mom to be read by all of you, sorry. ;)

All CTMH products: Blush textured cardstock, Chocolate ink, Chocolate rubons, Chocolate grosgrain ribbon, Chocolate brad, Big Pinks with some old bling, Heartfelt leaves, and clear shape. Stamp sets: Say it in Style, Tickled Pink.
