Thank You for stopping by...

I've been off the radar lately.  We are planning a move to Maryland over the summer to be nearer to my husband's job.  So I've been super busy getting our house ready to put on the market.  And now the big day is here! We'll have fancy brochures next week, but with an optimistic mind to lots of "traffic" through the house this weekend, I thought I'd make some pretty little cards to leave out for people to take to remind them of our house.

I used the Create with Connie and Mary color challenge as inspiration.

Here are the cards, I did a bunch of sponging of the edges with crumb cake!

I added the words at the bottom and on the back I wrote our address. 
Here is a close up of the flowers, to give them a little depth, I used the back side of my paper piercer to put a little indent in them.

And finally, just to share here is a picture of our house taken in the Fall.  I love the house and am hoping the perfect family will come along and buy it.  Wish me luck!!

Bloomin' Wonderful, Flowers, Flowers, Flowers!

Remarkables blog tour time again!  I have one card to share with you today. Have you ever had a time where things are super busy, and your craft area is a long forgotten memory?  That's how things have been for me lately.  So just this morning I took a few minutes and made this pretty card.

It all started with the denim blue ribbon, then I was like "I'm feeling so saffron." And as the blog is about flowers, I stamped the whisper white with the trailing flowers from the thoughts and prayers stamp set. Punch out a few flowers with the itty bitty punch and tada!
Well, enjoy the rest of the hop, I'm sure that you'll get some great ideas!!
