CSS Alumni Blog Hop Feb 26/13 - Some of my Favorite Things

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to our CSS Alumni Favorite Things Blog Hop!  Remember this song from "The Sound of Music"? I remember watching the movie a few times when I was a kid.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Brown paper packages tied up with strings

These are a few of my favorite things 

Our challenge was to create a card or project showcasing one or more of our favorite things using GKD stamp sets released between Aug/12 and Jan/13.  Easy peasy!  I have two cards for you today.  Some of my favorite things include love, lady bugs, flowers, ribbon.... 

Stamps are from Beth Silaika's awesome set "Lovely Lady Bug".  Card stock and ink is GKD PL 'Cherry Red'. This is an all-occasion set; but I decided to use the stamps with hearts to make a Valentine's card.

Stamps are from Melanie's gorgeous sets "Stately Flowers 6" and "Beyond Baskets". Card stock is GKD PL 'Bubblegum Pink'. I changed my flowers at the last minute and the right border has too much yellow in it to match. Sorry about that - teach me not to leave things until the last minute.

Well, that's it for me today! If you miss any of the stops, you can go back to the StampTV forum here.  Next up is the fabulously talented Brenda Turner : )

Gloriously pretty cards! Love the off center layers and image on first card, and that RIBBON in second card floors me!
