Me for BlogBarbara

Hi everyone and Happy Labor Day Weekend. I hope most of you had the time off from work and if you did, perhaps you were busy doing what Barbara and I were doing … laboring over these adorable new templates from Lasting Impressions.  They are such fun.  Take a look at this card Barbara created with the new frog template.

Isn’t he adorable … googly eyes and all.  🙂  Then Barbara made a second card with the new flamingo.  Have a look:

And here’s Barbara’s version of the new cactus template (which we both love!):

Now my turn!  First I made a frog card and I am so loving this new Gingham paper!

Then I struggled a little with the Flamingo (my mind is a blank, having just come back from vacation), but finally noticed a card on Pinterest that gave me just the right idea for this cute pink bird!  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things and I couldn’t have said it better!

Last but certainly not least, here are my last two cards, using the cactus template.  The first card is one I did in my classes, over the weekend.  I’ve love braided cards and I recently shared that technique while visiting Lasting Impressions. For the second card, the front white cardstock actually flips up for the message inside.  The card is flat like a postcard. I used Colored Impressions’ Software for the sentiment inside:

You can find all the wonderful L.I. products both Barbara and I used on these cards by going to the Home Page.  Please also take a look a the new Coloring Card Kits!  They are so much fun.  I recently did the Succulent Kit because I was so enjoying the new cactus template and couldn’t get enough of the cute design.  These kits contain 8 cards and matching envelopes … ready for you to color.  I will be sharing how I color these Coloring Kits in my next Embossing Chat.  In the meantime, have fun shopping.
