TMS492 You Are Wonderful

Happy Wednesday, peeps!  I have a couple simple cards today, both using this sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches:

I love things in threes, so when I saw this, I knew I had to play!  I sort of did the sketch from memory once I saw it, so I "forgot" that the sentiment band went all the way across...hopefully it will be okay!  The first card is for someone who did a really nice favor for me, so I made her a thank-you card using some American Crafts Shimelle papers and a couple of stamp sets:

I stamped the little feather from Papertrey's What the Doodle Feather set in So Saffron, Mint Macaron, and Merry Merlot (stamped off once), then fussy cut them out and mounted them on some stitched circles:

The sentiment from Rooted in Nature seemed perfect, also stamped in Mint Macaron:

I mounted the whole shebang on a So Saffron card base...I just think these colors and patterns are so fun!

My next card is a little note card made for the cancer center; it uses the same sketch, but the color challenge from Hand-Stamped Sentiments:

This is one REALLY simple; a layer of Highland Heather on a white notecard, then a layer of Twinkle Twinkle DSP, and some words and a sentiment from Close to My Heart's Inspired Words:

I stamped the dragonfly from Touches of Texture with Highland Heather ink, then colored it with Blends and some Wink of Stella, then popped it up on a mini dimensional:

I hope it brings some encouragement!  Thanks for popping in today!

Speaking of encouragement, Dana had been talking at dinner about work issues, and when she opened her lunch the next day, she found another little lunchbox card from Cassidy:

I guess we probably all wish for a day like that, LOL!  Enjoy yours and be blessed!  And remember...little pitchers have big ears!

What a great trip of cards LeAnne - love the paper and feathers on the first one - but I'm afraid Cassidy steals the day today with her cute froggy pick-me-up - so cute!!

How sweet of Cassidy! I love everything about your cards. I always wonder about following the sketch to a tee. I hope they accept.

Lisa Elton said...

Just look at all of those colorful feathers and that pretty little dragonfly! These are fantastic LeAnne! That Cassidy is a sweetheart ;)

Such pretty cards! But my fav is Cassidy's! I have that fun stamp set (because of you LeAnne). Will have to make a few of these! Thank you for leaving a comment on my SCS post. I can't load any photos to my DBWS blog and albums any more which is a bummer. Tempted to try a real blog? But figure it would be too difficult.

Love the card layouts. Both are delightful, but I especially love the feathers.
And, you've raised a sweet little girl. I don't know if you know this, but I started following you because I like the photos of your granddaughter. She was a toddler, and I had just started caring for my granddaughter who is now 7 years old. I used to think they were so much alike they would have been great friends. My granddaughters are little country girls, raising chickens and riding snowmobiles and 4 wheelers, always with a stuffed animal on their laps.

Love all these colorful feathers, LeAnne! A fun way to say thanks! This is a great sketch and I love how you've used it twice!

Your first two cards are wonderful interpretations of this week's sketch. I really like them both. The feathers background is so colorful and fun. Perfect compliment for the three single feathers. Your second card is really yummy looking in the palette that you've used. The sentiment and the three words are really wonderful. Thank you for sharing both your cards (yes, I know you only entered the one at the web site) with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

You've created a couple of amazing, encouraging cards here LeAnne! I love how different the cards are, showing that you can do so much with one sketch! Thanks for playing along with us at Hand Stamped Sentiments!

I love the card you created with the Hand Stamped Sentiments colors. Great idea to stamp the sentiments inside the circle die cuts. Genius! Thanks for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments!
