FF107 and CTS212 Project Life Cards

Happy Saturday, peeps!  I have had a couple of busy days and the blog got a bit neglected!  So I have two cards today; I liked the Fab Friday sketch 107:

but I didn't want to use a doily for the semi-circle....then I remembered that I have a couple of boxes of Project Life products that needed some love!!!  This floral image came from the Hello Lovely kit:

I mounted it on a Soft Sky card on which I embossed the lower half with the Seaside embossing folder.  I found that the embossing made my card a wee bit "wobbly" so I added a layer of thick white cardstock on the backside and it worked wonderfully!  The sentiment is from Watercolor Wishes, stamped on a retired SAB designer paper.  I added some stamped florals from Timeless Textures, SAB ribbon and a few gold sequins to complement the gold foil mat!

While I had my Project Life cards out, I made another card using the CTS sketch:

I must have been in a Soft Sky mood!  I stamped a few flowers from Endless Thanks directly onto the polka-dotted PL card, then stamped the sentiment and stripey element in Soft Sky and Smoky Slate: 

It's not at all what I first envisioned when I saw this sketch, but it's certainly unique, LOL!  It sort of reminds me of pebbles!  Anyway, thanks for popping in, and be sure to stop back tomorrow for the next Paper Players challenge!

We have had some crazy weather lately....February brought temps in the 70s, and yesterday, we had snow!  Wet, damp, heavy we made a snowman:

Pretty stylish, right?!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Cassidy is a fashionista! I love the color clothes she wears. Does she pick them out herself? I missed you yesterday so I went around all day with only a half smile. It's full on today! Beautiful cards, excellent artistry. Have a blessed weekend.

Grampy & Cassidy look like they had a great time playing in the snow yesterday! It got pretty COLD out with spring being 9 days away! Such crazy weather!! Love both of your cards today, LeAnne! It's always nice to see things made from retired products! TFS and stay warm, my friend! :)

What a great idea to use the flower wreath from PL for that circular element of our sketch! Great card with great colors and texture. Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

Lots texture, color, and layers! Superb! Congrats on the Fab Fave pick!

At least you had enough snow to make a snowman!
