The "pot" for the flower is punched using a Christmas ornament punch.  Cutting the bottom off makes a cute little pot I think . . . . . .

This is another card for the month we had "folds" as a theme for swap.  I found the pattern for and folded these little oragami dresses.  14 cards . . . 28 dresses, in different colors . . . .

I love these whimsical little flowers.  I've been seeing cards with white gel pens and wanted to try it.  This is the result.

There is something about trees that I really like . . . .

I was goofing around with a Christmas theme for this one.  This reminds me of a sculpture from where I used to live on the "Great Salt Lake"!!

Another, "just because" card . . . . Got some new stamps and wanted to try them out.  I embossed the black on this one so the colors wouldn't run together.

Another "black magic" card . . . . .LOVE IT!

I've been looking at the "black magic" technic for a while, and when I saw this stamp I thought it'd be fun to try it.  You stamp a white image onto a black piece of paper and then use watercolor pencils to color and shade.  It looks better in person. . . . . . .

The swap theme for this card was "folds."  I folded this "triangle" fold card . . . . turned out pretty fun.

I made this one using some hostess stamps that I got and an old background stamp (the leaves).  I used a pear color . . . . . and a layout challenge from split coast stampers.

This was a "just for fun" card. . . . I tried some paper piercing and used Crystal Effects in the middle of the flowers.
