I usually like to find a common theme amongst the cards & projects that I post. I decided to just mix it up since I am trying to catch up on some things today. I think if I do a few days of "whatever" that I might be able to fit a few more blog posts in. So, here we go with some favorites that I have sitting in my inbox.
The colors really pop against the black shading/grounding that Alice did on this card. I love the mix of all the patterns on the presents.
I missed sharing this next card last month with the migration to the new website. Andrea used the Perpetual Calendar set to create this card. It is great as a New Year's card or to be use each month to celebrate a birthday.

We are still pretty much covered in snow here. There has been quite a bit of melting going on the past week. We have been outside all week chopping away at the skating rink that was once our driveway. My husband just commented that it is nice we are starting to see our property again. This card from Helen seemed pretty appropriate today.
I have always been a fan of kraft cardstock. I love how the color of Copics & Prismacolors will really pop. Jen mixed it up a bit with this kraft card. She added white embossing to the bouquet which really makes it stand out. The coloring direct on the kraft and then adding colored elements on white cardstock give the card a great look.
A hot product these days are stencils and embossing paste. Judith created the honeycomb background for the bees to fly around. It adds a nice texture and dimension to the card. It's hard to tell but the wings are all sparkly.
I think this next card by Karin is so stinkin' adorable. I am a fan of Shadow and this is such a great card. I really like the dark background with the little stars and heart. So cute.
I am always attracted to Kay's cards because they are so crisp and clean looking. I love all the layers she adds to give her cards dimension.
A few of the girls have been using diecut sentiments in their cards. Kelly did a cute card with rosie and one of those diecuts. I like the shine from the embossing. It gives the card some texture. Kelly does some great coloring and the softness on Rosie is perfect. I really like the papers and colors in this card as well.
stamps used: Rosie
Lorraine did this card for a recent challenge blog and shared it with me. I am so glad she did. It is so simple, but sooo cute!!
stamps used: Coffee & Tea Set
This is another card I got all giddy about when I saw it. Remember today's post is filled with recent favorites. What I love about Therese's cards is her knack for mixing up stamps and coming up with such adorable ideas. Here she uses Birch from Stacey Yacula with The Traveler Set from Carolyn Draws.
Therese creates a lot of videos for the cards she makes (this one included). Make sure you check them out. There isn't a single one that doesn't have some great tip(s) & technique(s) included.
