Greetings from hot and steamy (yes, I said steamy - for us at least) San Diego!
The weather is more like the South or East this week...hot and sticky! Even the kitties are going in slo mo! Flowers are still my favorite at least for this month! So, I did another Orchid card AND a card that I CASE'd from Laura Kant at laurascreativemoments.blogspot.nl. I made this one for a birthday of a dear friend...(hope she doesn't read this issue of the blog (yikes)..
Here is the 2nd Orchid card ~ I am in love with Melon Mambo and the new Lemon Lime Twist. At first I wasn't sure if it would be too neon, but it isn't - it is gorgeous!
I shared this sneek peek on my Facebook page, but wanted to give you the list of supplies used
Next is the birthday card I made...
As I said above, I CASE'd this lovely card almost exactly from Laura Kant. Laura, thank you very much - you made beautiful renditions of this card inspiring me! Here the supplies for this one:
Unfortunately, both framelit sets I used (and love still) are retired...boo hoo! Also, the Mint Macaron Paper is retired! Aaarrrgghh! That is one of my favorite colors!
