"Make Today Pretty"

Hello everyone on this Friday, September 21, 2018.
I'm popping in with a card I started on yesterday but didn't finish.  This morning I did get to finish this fancy fold card for your viewing.
My color inspiration is "blue" so I found paper that would blend together for layering.  I didn't use any dies but  I just had to place a flower on the card.  I used all DP paper from Recollections as well as the black for a layer.  The card base is Neenah white.  The flower is from Prima.  The faux pearls are from Walmart (Studio G self-adhesive).
This was a fun project to put together after cutting out all the paper you want to use.  I even decorated the back panel with a pull out tag for the sentiment.

Here's your view:

Thanks for your time today.  I hope the remainder of this day will be a blessing to you and please have a glorious weekend.
Come again, I enjoy your comments.

Sending you a hug and love,
Lois

"Have You Forgotten To Use Your Punches?"

Happy Tuesday everyone.
I'm so glad to be sharing with you on today, September 18, 2018.
First, I hope my friends in Virginia whose areas were hit by the tornadoes on yesterday are safe.  Yes, the major wind and water damage may have passed us by due to the hurricane but we were not really looking forward to tornadoes touching down.  I can't say that we were caught off guard but they came so fast and furious.
It will probably be the same this afternoon so we are preparing again to be safe.  I did have an appointment today but I cancel because I didn't want to be on the highway with the threat of a tornado on the horizon.
I put down the craft fair items and went back to card making this morning.
The inspiration for this card came by looking at a box of punches I took out to make rosettes.  Wow!  These were my long time friends that I used a long time ago before getting into dies.  I will be using the punches for rosette making but today I use one to punch around the edge of some cardstock to make a card.
Take a look:
