Happy February!

We have had such a nice weather pattern going lately.  Whoever heard of 50 degrees in January in northern Wisconsin?!  Last week we were in the 40's all week too.  I know it won't last, but it sure is a nice change.

I have made a few more cards since I was last here.  This one is iris folding.  I have not done this technique in quite a while, but I like how it turned out.  I used tissue paper for the vase and tore apart some silk flowers I had to put in the vase.
This is one I made for a valentine.  The clip art came from TLC Creations.  You really need to check out what she has available.  Lots of goodies for your card making and scrap booking pleasure.  And be sure to become a follower so you can get even more goodies!  I used my Martha Stewart heart border punch for the edges and an embossing folder from Darcie (hearts) for the background.  I made a medallion for the front, inked the edges with Distress Ink in Fired Brick, and tied on some eyelash ribbon.
This one is made with with Spellbinders Elegant Posts for accents.  Of course a medallion made from a tile I made.  The background is made using the bubble wrap technique - paint bubble wrap with acrylic paint, press your card stock onto it and let it dry.  When dry, I lightly inked it with Fired Brick Distress ink.  The original color of the card stock is what I call paper bag brown.

I hope you are having a great day!  Feel free to leave a comment if you have time.  I like feedback!
