One of a Kind

Well – I’m BAAAACK with just one more post for today –

Since I colored this image and die cut it the other day it was a cinch to add it to this card:


Based off of this Viva La Verve sketch  – May 2015 Week 3 Sketch


I used another SU! stamp from an unknown set! Daffodil Delight cardstock was used in the Chevron Embossing folder from Stampin’ Up! I watercolored the image and added some Bumblebee Doodlebug Pearls to my scrap of Lavender Lace cardstock!

    Hey there, Taunya! Thank you for visiting my blog today! I am so sorry I haven’t visited you lately – for some reason I am no longer receiving your emails. I subscribe by email and also Bloglovin but I don’t really use Bloglovin – I use Google Friend Connect to read my blogs so I was relying on your emails to alert me to a new post but something has gone wrong! I am so sorry – it looks like I’ve missed a few cards! These two are adorable – what a sweet stamp and sentiment on the first card and the second one is just so pretty with the rose! I will go look now at your other cards to see what I’ve missed. Shame on that email subscription! Not sure what to do about it.

    A double delight here, Taunya, both filled with the vibrant joy that you bring to your crafting! The yellow flower popping from the midst of the roses truly is ‘one of a kind’ – sunny and happy! The rose on the second…oh my! My swooning, usually reserved for butterfly cards, is in full swing with this gem. WOW! Simply stunning! Again, I’m ecstatic that you’re showcasing your works of art in a variety of challenges! Your abundant creativity is just exponentially inspiring!
