FMS81 & IB70


Happy wet, rainy Friday to everyone!  After temps in the 70s and 80s over the last two days, I am happy to see some cooler weather…we needed rain too!

Today’s card is for the Inspired By challenge photo for this week:

as well as the Freshly Made Sketches sketch:

Sadly, I had NO Midnight Muse DP that had white in it….they were all full of vanilla!   So I went with that, although I may try another one for this inspiration photo again!  So here we go:


The floral images are from Papaya Collage; the tag uses Lovely Letters, Tiny Tags and Teeny TIny Wishes.  DP is from Print Poetry, which is still available in the Spring mini catalog!  It’s fastened to some Natural ribbon with Linen thread:


I also dyed some  flowers from the Flower Trim (also in the mini) with some Crumb Cake reinkers to make my embellishment:


I just love this effect!

Tomorrow I’ll be attending the Baltimore Regionals---I am really looking forward to spending time with some of my downline and friends I’ve made along the way!


A whole pad of post-it notes and a receipt from the grocery store equals half an hour of uninterrupted play!!!




Thanks for visiting today!

I love all the details in this card, LeAnne! The tags with the combination of stamps and colors is especially lovely! The coordination of your ribbon and dyed flowers is perfect. Love everything! Thanks for playing along with my sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

How beautiful! I love your layered stamping, and the dyed flowers are beautiful in Crumb Cake -- what a great vintage effect! That ribbon is pefect for this card, too. Love it!

LeAnne, this is undoubtedly one of the prettiest cards I've seen. Absolutely beautiful in every way. And your little peanut is as cute as ever too. She's obviously very involved in her work! :)

This is so pretty & feminine. I think I prefer the vanilla; it doesn't jump out at you as much.

Very pretty! Love the stamp and color combination!

I can't believe how long it's been since visited - making up for it today though;)
This card is stunning! You know by now that I love blue and vintage and so you've won my heart with this card. The flower image is so pretty and I love the DP.
There is Cassidy and her imagination going sweet. I love these pictures of her.
