Some shares...

Sorry I've been MIA lately. Summer is getting away too fast!! Swimming lessons are almost over, soccer has started and I need to do some shopping for the boys for school clothes. Yikes!
Anyway, here are some shares for you. I've made a few more card packs for the fair. These cards are 3-1/2"x5" note cards that are found on page 168 in the catalog. A pack of 20 prescored WW card bases and 20 WW envelopes for $7.95
This first one I scalloped the edge and then added the pp. I used Eastern Blooms for the flowers and happy birthday from the All Holidays set. PP is from the Bella Bleu pack. Ink color is Not Quite Navy.
This next one was a lot of work. And then I decided to make a pack of 6! Don't worry, I was calling myself names too. But I do LOVE this card! Dreams du Jour stamp set and I water colored the flowers. The middle 'love you' square is on dimensionals. You can't see it very well but there are Pink Butterflies down the left side of the WW layer. I think if you click on the picture it will get bigger. Pink Pirouette and Chocolate chip cs/ink.
I'm doing a swap with my downline and here is one of the cards I'm sending her.
It uses Fifth Avenue Floral and now while I'm typing this I realize it's stamped in retired colors, Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, and Pacific Point. So I guess I won't send it to her she can't use it. Oh well, I'll add it to my stash!
I also wanted to share (or brag about) the cake I made my niece who just turned 9. She wanted a 2 tier 'wonky' cake with pink fondant and purple flowers that had 5 petals with pink centers. So I did as I was told. She loved it. I still need way more practise with putting the fondant onto a round cake but it wasn't too bad, I hope.
