2 cards...

Yes.  I'm doing it again.  I'm sharing 2 cards in one post.  It's been CRAZY today and so I have to be quick!  So let's get started!  This first one is for the Less Is More challenge to create a one layer card using only 3 stamps.  The stamps I used were the sentiment, the large flower, and the small flower.  You'll be able to tell...this is also my "Spread the L-O-V-E" card for the week sent to a wonderful lady whose inspiring words really helped me out this weekend.  The sentiment looks really dark, but it's really Island Indigo, a bright blue by Stampin' Up!.

Here's the card~

The second card is for 2 fabulous challenges.  I've used the colors from CR84FN and the sketch from Retro Sketches.  I went for white on white with some pops of color--one of my favorite things! :)  You may remember the main image panel from this post...

Here's the inspiration photos~

Thanks for popping over today!  School is out next week and I'm hoping that things will get better after I'm not working full time for a bit!  Also, I would love to see you all over at Technique Tuesday!  The month is only half over, so you've got a bit to create something!!! Happy stamping!!! :)

FABULOUS pair of card Mynnette! Love the chalkboard look of the sentiment panel on your first card and the fun splash of flowers. The second card is layered in soft prettiness!

You amaze me Mynnette - I can feel the energy crackling off you even though you are on the other side of the world from me! Your cards have the same energy and I particularly like the first with it's bold label and bright flowers. Vicky x

A beautiful butterfly Mynnette, and the touch of gingham is perfect with this clever white on white background.

Hi Mynnette - sorry I've not been by for a while! Love both these cards. I think the LIM card is very striking. But I just love the texture and layers on your CR84FN card - absolutely beautiful. Thanks so much for playing along with CR84FN!
