 Up first today I have a card I made with Melanie Muenchinger's new set, Stately Flowers  #9!!  I know I'm not the only one loving Mel's Stately Flowers sets, and this is another one that I am totally loving!  This is what I have done for today:



I used the apple blossum flower.  I painted it with some distress paints, super easy and  fun!  Ill be using this card as an example for the Mix It Up Monday Challenge on StampTV today too, come play in my Ovalerly Easy Challenge!!  Next up is Debbie Corbari's newest little Diva, Knit-wit Diva!

Great cards Cat!

Judy I, St. Louis MO said...

Great cards. Love the Stately Flower. Your Knit Wit card is inspired. I love how you wove the yarn through the die cut to look like she's knitting with it. You're right - it doesn't have to be colored - it's very effective the way you've done the image.

BeLinda Andrews said...

Ro Donner said...

Great cards! That second one is so cute and clever the way you wound the yarn. Thanks for sharing!

Cathy,

Your apple blossom card is very pretty (even if I am not much of a "pink girl"), but I especially like the way that you added the yarn to the purple "knit happens" card.
