These Ones Are For Me...

I make cards for all sorts of reasons.  Birthdays, holidays, births, just because, challenges and of course, workshops.  But I don't ever make cards for me.  As in, cards that I have no intention of sending to anyone else.  But I was buying some supplies recently and came across an image that just summed up how I've been feeling lately and the kind of thing that I'd send to myself.  I know that sounds a little strange...

I tried to work this image in with all sorts of patterned papers and embellishments, and I just couldn't get it to work.  So they're ultra simple, but I think I like that...

Stamp sets - My Favorite Things - My Umbrella
Cardstock - White Cambric Linen, Watercolour paper
Inks - Versamark, Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay, Blush Blossom, Close to Cocoa
Accessories - Black embossing powder, heat tool, Aquapainter. dimensionals



  1. OMG! This is just gorgeous! I dont need to say more ;)

  2. That is just sooo cute Danielle! The image is adorable and your colouring is fantastic. I think it is perfect just as it is. the image really pops right off the card!

  3. These are so beautiful. I just love those colours and the stamp is gorgeous.

  4. So cute Danielle. Your colouring is getting so good. Less is best remember, your cards are perfect as they are!

  5. Love the black embossing edges and love those colours! You will be OK Danielle - so keep these in front of you to remind you! Less most often is definitly best!

  6. LOVE IT! simplicity great :+) I love the green best - I think I find the yellow too cheery for the sentiment, but then maybe that's a good thing!


  7. she's beautiful! and it will be ok. hugs.

  8. I do it all the time, and these sweet cards just perfect, I love them, I would send them to myself anyday! lol!
