Can't sleep...

It was a L O N G and crazy day today and I was awoken from an unplanned nap after work by my DH calling me and thinking it was part of a dream.  So I'm in a weird place of sleepy but can't sleep...so I'll blog some cards!  I've got two to show you...

Card one~

Details~



For these fabulous challenges~




CAS in design with just a bit of bling.  I used markers to color in my flowers and then stamped them onto the card.  I added a sentiment, some glimmer mist splatter, and some gems.  Voila!

Card two~

Details~



For these fabulous challenges~




This card is also CAS in design with lots of beautiful white space.  I just adore white on white!!!  And I love embossing some of the white to add texture.  This card is for a dear friend that I am so incredibly thankful for that is going through a hard time right now.  She's wonderful!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my creations--I appreciate all the time that it takes for you to come and visit and I hope to return the favor!  Please join in these amazing challenges!  Happy stamping! :)

Mynnette, I like them both however the pearls looked like dew or lovely rain drops. So in recapping you had a hectic day, were awakened from sleep and produced these two lovely cards. Well done! We so appreciate you sharing with us.

Mynnette I love the softness and dreamy look of these (maybe it's your sleepy state tee hee). The gems and pearls just add so much to them and really bring in a pop of glam!

Hi Mynnette. Both cards are beautifully CAS! The first is a fabulous combination of colors ... love the soft and peaceful look to the card. The second has so much texture ... love the embossing and the beautiful leaves. And the placement and sizes of the pearls add so much detail! Thanks for joining us at ATS&M this week!
