More or Less?

A simple card or step in up for a more elegant card. What do you prefer? I love showing how simple it is to create a beautiful card. And to add some punch to it with just a few simple embellishments. Depending on how much time I have when I make my own personal cards, I prefer the embellishments, but sometimes time does not allow. Two great cards with slightly different looks.

Flower Collage

I love the spring and the summer. I especially love having flowers in bloom. This year we had some landscaping done on the front, and had some dead azaleas taken out on the side of the house. I already had a hydrangea planted there a few years ago and added two more where the azaleas were. Home Depot had some gorgeous Mandevillas that I had to have for the patio! The picture below was created with My Digital Studio by Stampin' Up! A fun and easy way to scrapbook, make cards, and so much more! Happy Stamping & Knitting!

Mom's Mother's Day gift

While this will be a late gift for Mom, it is done! This is the quickest sweater I have made besides a baby one! Love the way it turned out! And have now cast on one for me with a different yarn. But I must say that I love the airiness (is that a word?) Moms. I made it with Tahki "Jeans" yarn. She can wear it and know it is a hug from me every time she does! Happy Stamping & Knitting!
