Those are simply gorgeous! Paper for cardmaking is on my shopping list for tomorrow. Hope I can find some lovely floral pages like yours. I love all of the little "birdie" things you create, too :) . Birds are my favorite of God' creatures. I laughed one day when I realized that I seem to collect "birds & words"...they are everywhere in my home.
Blessings to you,
Catherine

So pretty! Btw...how do you do the "shading with the inkpad" that you're always writing about. I am a dunce when it comes to paper crafting, but I love to do it, so I'd love to learn some tricks.

Happy Birthday Kelli!

I've a question about your ribbon. How do you attach it to the card? I'm wondering if you use a hole punch and then thread the ribbon through and around?

Hi Birthday Girl! I know your loving family is treating you extra special today. ;-)

The card is beautiful. Thanks to you I am having a ball doing all kinds of Valentine stuff this year.

Lots of birthday hugs from me to you. Love, Debbi

Kelli said...

Bethany, shading works best with a foam ink pad. Just quickly dab/rub the edges. I will take pictures for next week's project.

Gina, the ribbon wraps around the inside of the card.

Oh Kelli, the flowers on the first card are so pretty! You are always such a busy bee and I wonder if the days over there in Texas have more hours than here in Germany? ;-)
