How About Some Cards?

I've managed to sneak into my craft space the past few days and created some cards for your viewing pleasure (at least I'm hoping they'll please I like them pretty well myself. The inspiration for the cards comes from various blogs, but not necessarily any specific one. I also made pretty good use of my Cricut. Yes, the love affair continues and I'm going to embrace having my baby bug and the joy that it has been bringing me.

The first three cards use snowflakes from the Winter Lace Seasonal cartridge. Did you know, the more snowflakes you have to choose from means it's that much harder to actually select one???

 I like the simplicity of this card and, until I looked at the photo, liked the black ink. Shoot, now I think it should have been dark brown. May have to do some corrective card surgery on this one! That's kraft cardstock and the that at the bridal section...before these types of brads were all the rage. LOL
Love, love, LOVE how this one turned out. Baby Pink cardstock (CTMH) and a bit of Cotton Bloom, a brand spanking new DCWV cardstock stack available at Michaels exclusively. Gotta love those 50% off coupons during the holidays! Oh the colors in this stack are so pretty!
Okay, this card was cased from one I saw in this post at iStamp waaaay back in November. Here's the direct link to the creator's beautiful card. The super pretty snowflake on top of the glittered one is from Hobby Lobby. I've only had it in my stash since last year. It's a Spare Parts brand (and I do believe they are on sale 50% off this week)...There are four in the package, 2 like this and 2 that are more white. The glitter is some cheapo stuff from....wait for it....Hobby Lobby! hee, hee I used the Cuttlebug and Desert Sand cardstock and ink. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set Frames and Messages, I think.

And this final one....ohhhhh, makes me smile...I wonder why?

Here you can see some more of the colors from that new DCWV Cotton Bloom. Gosh, aren't they pretty? I searched my cartridges for a pretty butterfly and found this little gem on Home Accents. It's a layered cut. I like how the white pops against the blue. The edge punch is from Martha Stewart. The sentiment is stamped in Twilight ink and is a CTMH set called Birthday Script.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
As the year winds to a close, I hope you are looking forward to a creative 2011.

Beautiful cards Jeanne! The snowflakes are very pretty - I see what you mean about having to pick one! Nice selection shown here!

Very pretty snowflake cards!! I recently picked up lacy labels cartridge.(I think that's what it's called) I'm not sure I like the "Lite" Cartridges. I like having the whole book.

Your butterfly card is so pretty and makes me think of spring. Nice!

Whoa! It would be hard to pick a favorite from this fine lot. Your snowflake cards are beautiful, and the butterfly card makes me smile, too! All wonderful - like you! I'm glad you found some time to play. If I can find my mojo (and my stamps under the mess), I'm hoping for some playtime this weekend.
