Welcome to another card and challenge at Inspiration Destination #92

This is my card using the image called Book Lover.. I am a book lover and I read quite often. I have a kindle and it's loaded. I have a computer room with book shelves loaded with books.. I had fun making this card.. If your wondering why the ribbon.. I probably shouldn't say but when I got the card together I wanted the Oh, Hello there (as it looks like she didn't know someone was there and looked up) so I stamped it... WITH OUT CLEANING THE OVER INKING FROM THE BLOCK.. oh man I was mad and sad. I did not want to color another image and so I added the ribbon and the hearts to cover the lines from the block.. You'd never know if I hadn't mentioned it.. huh?

Welcome to another challenge at Inspiration Destination #92 - Always Anything Goes

It's a great time to start making Christmas cards so that is what I did.. It's less than 6 months away.. yikes.. you know how time flies so better start now and I have been seeing Christmas cards on a lot of blogs.. I chose to use the image called A bell for Christmas.. I really wanted to make it bright and colorful so used the awesome blue for the ribbon and against the terra cotta color bell looks awesome. I really like this image and will be using it again. I hope you find time to play along at Inspiration Destination. It's always anything goes.

This is the new release called Beach girlz.. She's got her beach bag and ready for some beach fun.  I was digging through some of my 6x6 paper pads and found this perfect designer paper from American crafts..

You bring me joy.

Saturday June 25, 2016
 
I watched a video Jennifer McGuire did on dies with open areas - floating die cut panels.. I liked the idea but did not want to do all the work it required and remembered I had a die that would kinka do the same thing.. I did adhere the turquoise piece down but you could have it the front of the card and put a white piece inside so it was see through. I have been itching to use more of the Botanical die set from stampin up and that is the flowers and leaves with scraps of paper I had laying around. It's just a bright fun card.
The sentiment would be good for an anniversary card, just because card.

 I am using the image called "Stella work - I like work" and the sentiment is from another Stella image.  I used some nice work dp behind the image because work can be nice.. but then I used the anchor paper because sometimes work feels like it weighs you down..
