A Few New Cards

Somehow yesterday I was able to stay late at work, stop by the jeweler's, get home, make delicious pork tenderloin w/rosemary red potatoes for dinner, and still have time to make two new cards. Not sure how that happened, but I doubt it will be repeated anytime in the near future. :-)

Anyway, on to crafty stuff....

The first card was inspired by my wedding colors. My girls are wearing Eggplant from Alfred Angelo (a very deep purple) and the flowers are going to be purple and orange.

The second card was in anticipation of my PTI order with the new Guide Lines 2 set. I got out the original Guide Lines set and last year's anniversary set and got to stamping. Then I colored with my white gel pen to add some highlights.

Not exactly masterpieces, but not half bad for stealing away a little time to try to play in my craft room in the middle of so much rushing around.

When I mentioned the jeweler above it's because I am finally getting my ring next weekend! I am so excited I can't stand it. I saw it yesterday and decided that the center diamond was set way too high so I'm going to see what they can do about that and then that baby is finally mine! I'll be sure to post pics as soon as I can.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a good one.

I always forget about using the white gel pen.It's amazing what such a little touch can add to a design. Beautiful cards Mary.

I love what you did with the guidelines set. The gel pen made it look totally different.
