Cardabilites Sketch #71 is up today...

Good Morning Everyone!
Today there is a brand new post up on the Cardabilites Blog
and I get to be one of the new Design Team Members!! Yay!! 
 I made 3 cards to share today with some new papers
that I got from my LSS from Doodlebug. 

I wanted to do something bright and cheerful with
spring coming our way here in California and
with all the pretty bright colors of this collection
it was really easy to make them...
So first up let me share the sketch for this week-
and now my card...

I added one more piece to the sketch as a pocket
to put one of the tags in the set and stamped
"Have a great day!" on it.  The flower I created with
my Spellbinders die "Jewel Flowers and Flourishes" 
and put another one of the stickers over it.  I added
bits of foliage at the sides and tied a pretty piece of
orange twine on it. The colors are just so pretty :)

So I was on a roll and decided to make this
next card along the same idea but
I flagged the ends and added the sticker on
the top and 2 arrow stickers for the flags instead.
This is a really quick and easy card to do!
I think it took all of 5 minutes maybe :)

And for my last card I turned the sketch sideways
and glued the 2 pieces on top of each other and
made a pretty flower with a few white leaves with
the same Spellbinders die as my first card. Oh and I
offset the lines in the Hello Sunshine tag so that
it would stand out and not blend so much.  It goes
but then it doesn't.  And one more thing to share is if
you notice the envelopes under the cards are done
with M-bossabilites folders by Spellbinders.  I love
using theirs because they give you such a bold and raised
print and how fun to make your envelopes special too
when you give your cards away!
Thanks so much for stopping over for my first reveal
and let me know what you think about the cards,
I always love to hear from you :)
Hugs and smiles and have a wonderful day...
