Love and Thinking of You



Happy Wednesday my friends. I'm heading home this evening from a productive week visiting my companies Dallas location. I'll be happy to see all my guys at home tonight.  Here's hoping for uneventful travel!  

But...I do have two cards to share that I made over the weekend. Not for any particular challenge. These actually started as cards for the PaperTrey Ink blog hop but went a completely different direction.  I had die cut a punch of the shapes and started a rainbow of colors for the love you card. Then I had left overs and decided to make a floral card in my favorite floral colors of orange and yellow. Isn't it fun when you set out to make one card and then make something completely different?  I love the creative process!

I love the bright colors on both cards, sweet Lynn! They're just what we need to see in January; happy and cheerful colors. Sweet flower and I love how you've used the petals on your second one. Hope you've arrived at home and are safe in the arms of your family. Bev
