More "Special" Cards

I hope everyone is having a great Sunday.  In Tennessee today it is 95*.  After church and lunch, I'm staying inside.  I know I say I like hot weather, but with the humidity here in TN, it is a little if I lived out west, it wouldn't be so bad.

I hope you are enjoying the challenge that is running now.  So far there have been some great "special" entries.  You still have a week to enter if you haven't already.  Just a reminder - I always notify the winner that she / he has won.  That way you don't to constantly go back and forth to my blog to see if you have won.  Also, the winner's entry is put in the top corner on my sidebar.   Unless stated otherwise  in a post, the winner is chosen by random generator.

Petra and I have a couple more "special" cards to inspire you.
Here is an encouragement or friendship  card.  I am using another flower from Our Daily Bread Designs' flower sheets.  These are really great to embellish your card or on a mixed media project.  The backgroud shape is made with a Spellbinder and the background cardstock of my greeting itself is made with embossed webbing, a Technique Junkie technique.  The greeting is a digital from Sweet and Sassy.
Now and again every single one of us needs a little bit of encouragement, wishing us good luck when facing a new situation, attempting something new. The card was created in this spirit, a card which combines something old and a lot of new. For the old I 're-cycled' the inside of old envelopes and created the square inset, the new bit is everything else (lol): a square white card - a square frame cut with nestabilities from white card - birdcage and birds are from Prickley Pear stamps, the sentiment from Waltzing Mouse - the birds are coloured with VersaColor ink - birds, birdcage and sentiment are embossed.


  1. Love the flowers on your card Vicki and Petras card is great just with the white and then black & blue! Great theme - I've entered my card for your "Special" theme!

  4. Well Vicki, if you lived out west you'd be sitting in a rain shower about now. LOL but I suppose its better than a heat wave.
    Lovely cards you gals made.
