Fashion and flowers

My poor blog has been so neglected! And so have my stamps! This new job and moving are kicking my butt! I still have a ton of stuff to unpack and organize in the craft room, and the kitchen is a bit of a mess. Then there's the stack of boxes in my friend's garage ... guess I'll have to go get those this weekend! First, though, tomorrow morning I'm headed to Long Beach for SoCal StampMania V! I can't wait!
Here are some more cards I haven't shared yet from VSN. The first one was for Suzy_H's challenge to use flowers on your card. I wanted to use this fun designer paper since it went so well with the fashion theme, and my co-coordinator, Denise, sent me a cool green felt flower to use. So I added another flower, a simple sentiment, and voila!
Stamps: Short and sweet
Ink: stazon black
Paper: DCWV textured notecard, Reminisce DP, tempting turquoise, pink passion
Accessories: felt flowers (one is Creative Cafe, the other is unknown), large Karen Foster brad, CB

The second card was for Sarahzoe's (JoAnn) "scbool uniform" challenge to use limited supplies from the list she provided. This was one of my favorite VSN cards. I love how the sentiment turned out. I used the stampamajig to line it all up!
Stamps: Embrace life
Ink: blue bayou, soft sky
Paper: whisper white, blue bayou, soft sky
Accessories: hodgepodge hardware, hemp twine, Heidi Swapp distresser, sponge

Both of these are cute. I like the top one because of all the colours and the cute little clothes and hangers. The second one has your clever idea of stamping all the words and "hanging" the frame over top. Very clever. Joan
