3 Cards

Don't have all my chores done, but did work on a couple cards--surprise, surprise!  
First up is my card for the Winnie & Walter Ink Blending challenge.  
I sponged a square card with Distress Inks festive berries & seedless preserves.  The poinsettia from In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals was clear embossed & the sentiments were silver embossed.  I splattered with Distress Stain brushed pewter & decided not to add any bling.  I'm working on one layer cards for Christmas, so happy to have one more done.  I'm also entering Allsorts, CropStopChristmas Card Challenges.

Next is my entry for PTI Celebrating 2011.  I'm so happy one of the showcased sets is Year of Flowers Collection.  
It was one of my earliest PTI purchases, but I haven't used it very much. Laurie's card done with Zigs totally inspired me, so I white embossed 4 of the florals on Bristol paper.  I chose fairly soft Zig colors since I need a sympathy card.  The panel is spritzed heavily with Perfect Pearls.
I love the floral panel, but then it took me several hours to actually make it into a card.  Thankfully, I do like the soft yellow frame & white embossed edges on the sentiment strip which was my very last idea!  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday.

Last is a card I posted on Flickr & thought you might enjoy seeing.  
The color scheme was inspired by CAS-ual Fridays, so I'm entering there. I used festive berries & worn lipstick Distress Ink pens to color the hearts which are from SSS Heart Banner die.  I covered them with WOS & Diamond Glaze before putting them back into the outline die cut from SSS Fog cardstock.  
The sentiment is from SSS Hello, Beautiful & I finished off with splatters & clear sequins.  I'm also entering Die Cut Divas. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

    P.S. As a schnauzer lover, I thought I'd share this with you....I talked with my mom today, and her 15-year-old female, Zoey, had a stroke this morning. She's dragging her left rear leg, and doesn't appear to be in pain, but her age has caught up with her. Doesn't sound like Zoey will be around much longer. Mom and Dad have prepared their hearts as much as possible, but it will be difficult (of course) when she slips away. Thought you'd like to know. She's my mom's little companion. So sad. Hope you and your family are doing well. Blessings! Karen
