Saturday with My Favorite Things

Hello friends!! It is Saturday here in blog land. I meant to be a better blogger and crafter this year but this first week back to work after the holidays KICKED MY BUTT!!! Between shuttling Charlotte around for her activities, getting back to a gym routine and doctor appointments, by the time I got home and ate dinner, all I felt like doing was stumbling to the couch and relaxing in front of the television. I don't know how all of you keep up your crafting with your hectic schedules!!

Today I am sharing two cards with you that I created last week but was too tired to post.

I created the first with the other two sympathy cards I made last week using My Favorite Things "Fall Florals" stamp and die set. Once again I utilized purple and gray as my color scheme.

I created the background by stamping the "Etched Flower" stamp in white. I love how it looks on the purple. Not too bright but enough to be seen!!

I added silver Stickles on top of my silver sequins to give a touch of shine to this card.

On a different note, here is another card I created last weekend using the "Hug in a Mug" stamp and die set from My Favorite Things.

I cannot tell you how happy this card makes me!!! I stamped the background with the "Canvas" stamp by Hero Arts in gray. I blended Vintage Photo ink on the whip cream and then misted it with water to get the look I wanted.

Now I am craving some hot chocolate!!

Thank you for stopping by!! Have a great day!!
