Paper Cupcakes Monday Challenge

The challenge this week was from DT member Patti J to use "Flight of the Fuschia" and

Make a 'Comforting" card (thinking of you, get well, sympathy, etc.), using Flourishes and/or Pearls...

I made two....had everything out and was playing with the image....


getting a little more used to working with digi's...but have a long way to go...to see some cards done by those that know what they are doing with them....go check out the Design Team's creations! from my favorite blogs in my sidebar, pick either Olga, Patti or Selma and that will take you to the whole team! 

(I apologize for short post, but its 4am on 2-4 and I'm autoposting this since I will be out of town next week, have been up all night getting cards done for while I'm away)

have a blessed day!

What are you talking about GF. You have done a FABulous job with this digital image. I've told you before but all your work is so awesome. I love how you have two doves taking flowers to the basket -- fantastic. And I love how you printed the verse on the second. Gorgeous cards Linda.

Oh my gosh, do you hear that noise? That annoying noise? Well...it's me gasping a sqealing with delight! I love both of your cards Linda! I think they are both just stunning. The card with the verse stamped over the bird just took my breath away. Girl, you knocked this one outa the park! Great job!

Well, girlfriend, just show the rest of us up and make two cards why don'tcha?!?! And two absolutely FABULOUS cards at that! :) I love them both and I don't know how you could be any better with digital images...flipping, cropping and resizing to make the first one (love you have the fuschia flower in the basket too!) and the sponging on the second is gorgeous!!! I'm so honored to have you on the DT this month and can't wait to see what else you come up with!

Two special cards Linda! My favourite is the second one with the verse sitting over the dove. Beautiful!
Looking forward to seeing your card for next weeks challenge.

Cathy Clark said...

Linda, your cards are so darn cute! Makes me smile!
The #s on the top of my Ciaos were homemade and given to me by Asela Hopkins. She painstakenly printed them out, I punched them out and glued with Goop (or E6000). She says that's the only two glues that would work.

Mary G. said...

Wow Linda! These two cards are spectacular! I love how you incorporated the spiritual verse onto the second card - very beautiful work!
Hugs, Danielle
