Quick Saturday Post

Happy Saturday! Ugh, I want a recount of days, I don't think I've had as many off as I should =)

I did these two cards yesterday as I waited for it to rain. (It didn't rain) This card I used the color challenge from Inkspirations and the sketch from Clean & Simple. When I saw the sketch I thought of using different circle images. After fighting with some clear stamps I went with cutting different size circles out of paper, using the negative and sponging the ink on the paper so it only was in the circle stencil. I have so many clear stamps but NONE of them work. I'm glad I'm a SU! stamp gal because our stamps NEVER have this problem! After looking at the circles they reminded me of the dandelions in my grass. I have oodles of flock so I flocked them and they turned out pretty cute =)

And for my second card 'o the day is this wheelbarrow of flowers. The sketch comes from Eat Sleep Stamp and colors from Off The Wall Craftiness. This is the first time I'm actually using this wheelbarrow. It's now retired but when it first came out I HAD TO HAVE IT. I swore I would use it soooooo much....wrong. I never could figure out what to use it with. Today it hold a ton of flowers from Itty Bitty Bits =) A nice way to start spring, even though we're due for over an inch of rain this weekend in SoCal, crazy weather in a crazy place!
