*Rainbow Flowers*

I was inspired by the colours of the rainbow of the new Catherine Pooler inks I purchases....  so I coloured up some of the Michael's bridal flowers I've had forever and put them on the front of the card.  I added a little black pearls and a sentiment stamped in black.

Quick and easy!

*Splendiferous Day!*

It feels so great to be creating a little bit this year... it's nothing compared to what I used to do before I went back to work, but it's nice to have a few recent cards on hand that I can send out!  Some days it's tough to get a card out, but at least I'm trying!
I used a great piece of really old patterned paper that I had in my stash... I'm pretty sure it is from my days working at the scrapbook store (and that was like 7 years ago!).  I paired it with my new Catherine Pooler ink (in Aquatini) and stamps (and dies) by AMuse and Winnine & Walter.  I used my ScorPal to create the embossed lines along the top and bottom of the patterned piece and a brown Pebble in the centre of the flower.

*A Big Slice of Happiness*

I am absolutely in love with this My Favorite Things set...  some fun birthday and cake sentiments (because really, the best part of a birthday is the cake!).

For this card I used a piece of patterned paper from my stash that I've had for about 8 years.  I've been hoarding this scrap cuz I love the paper so much and I can't get it anymore.  But hey, what's the point of having beautiful things if you can't share them with others!  I also used one of the new Catherine Pooler inks for the sentiment and my Misti to ensure I could stamp it a few times to get a great impression!
