Aimes said...

Firstly, HUGE congrats on the publication fame!

I can't adopt a single style when I craft, but when I'm surfing around Blogland it's always the clean and graphic designs that catch my eye!

Thanks for the super offer of your prize - so generous! I can't get hold of these 'frogs' myself so just throwing my name into the ring because y'never know...!

Paper Crafts Card Style Published Cards

These are the 5 cards I have in the new special issue Card Style. The first one pictured made the cover. Most of the cards I make fall into the category of Shabby Chic & Vintage. This special issue features 4 card styles:
Fun & Cute, Clean & Graphic, Classy & Elegant and Shabby Chic & Vintage. This issue is being featured this week on the Paper Crafts Connection and Moxie Fab World.

The Giveaway:

I thought it would be fun to do a giveaway to celebrate this special issue. I purchased these 3 vintage flower frogs at The Farm Chicks show on June 5th. The winner will receive all three of these flower frogs. They make great props for photographing your cards.
To enter please just leave a comment {with your name and email address}  and tell me which card style is your favorite.  I'll announce the winner on Saturday, July 17th.

Happy Birthday

I made this card for my mom's birthday which is tomorrow. We can fruit together every summer and when I first saw this set previewed I knew I had to have it.

I stamped and painted the jar and daisies on water color paper, then trimmed it out. The centers of the flowers are a gold colored fun flock.  I really love the large size of these images. This was a fun card to put together. Canning season is almost here!
