Love A Lot & Go Fly A Kite

Happy Sunday, my friends! Thanks for hopping around with me this past week. I feel so bad to bombard you with so many cards... Thank you so much for sticking with me. You are the best!! =)

I have a couple of hybrid cards to share with you today. Yeah, I know, more cards...

I made this card using the gorgeous papers and elements from Jo Hanna's Love A Lot digital kit. I am in love with the sweet candy colors in this kit! All papers and elements are from the Love A Lot kit, except for the doily digital stamp, the sentiment stamp and the trim. This kit is also available separately, see the papers here and the elements here.

The beautiful doily is from Gwenifer - The Elements kit also created by Jo Hanna. The fabulous sentiment is from the Fancy Phrases set by Waltzingmouse Stamps and is stamped with aged mahogany. I adore the elegant type/font in this stamp set! The trim is from Webster's Pages.

I used Michelle Underwood's super fun Go Fly A Kite digital kit for my second card. We all know that Michelle is the mater of beautiful patterned papers and she did not disappoint this time either!

I used a piece of real twine for the kite string and used my Around The Block label maker to make the sentiment.

That's all I have for today. Hope you have a hammock kind of day! =)

You could never put up too many cards for me Alice, I love seeing your take on the different images and kits! These two cards are awesome, the first one is like a li'l love note on a love note! But my favorite is your crazy kitty, Jaime, napping on his hammock! Too sweet! Enjoy the long weekend Alice!

STOP apologizing for posting cards! Your creations are ALWAYS a delight to view , I think I should be the one that should apologize -posting too many so-so cards! (LOL)!! LOVE both cards as they both have such creative and fun elements to them (like the sentiment and the string on the 2nd card)! LOVE that about your cards and oh.. your kitty is one lucky one! Wish I could be like that -all the time!
