Many Thanks! Cardz TV Challenge

Hello my crafty friends, can you believe it is Friday again?! My guys are playing Texas Hold 'em tonight so I have to get into the kitchen and do some baking. I made cherry and pumpkin pie yesterday along with chicken pot pie for supper. I figured if I was making crust, might as well make for chicken pot pie too. Was a good supper and good pie if I do say so myself.

I'd like to thank everyone for their wonderful comments on my spring flowers card. You sure do make my day ;-)

Well as you know every other Friday is the card challenge over at Cardz TV. Today our challenge was to make a thank you card and I used the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set from Cardz TV. I cased my card from a design team member, Cindy, over at My Creative Time. Thanks for the inspiration Cindy! Now it is your turn, make a thank you card and link up over at Cardz TV with us. Now if you'd like more inspiration go see what my design team sister's have for you over at Cardz TV, I promise they will inspire you! As always thanks for stopping by today and sittin' a spell with me. I always love your visits, they make my day. Crafty hugs, Brenda

Brenda both of these are gorgeous! So very, very classy - the sort of card you would find in an expensive boutique shop - just gorgeous. Have a lovely weekend Karen x

Both yours and Cindy's cards are fabulous! I just love the shape of the petals on the flowers, and those layered sentiment panels look fantastic! The combination of stripes and polka dots is very striking and has lots of eye appeal! Well done!

Jeri said...

This is just lovely, Brenda! I loved seeing your take on Cindy's version. That flower makes the card look like a million bucks. Gorgeous!!!

Those cool background stripes are fabulous, Brenda ... perfect with the dimensional bloom ... so elegant!

You asked about the stamp I used on my rainbow raindrops card ... it's one from a sweet set from WPlus9 called The Birds and The Bees. There are four short downward lines of dots with a heart at the end of each one ... I just stamped it loads and loads of times(I think 27!) in lots of different colours!

Have a great weekend, Anita :)

Both of the cards are wonderful. I love how you "cased" Cindy's card. So very pretty and really looks different done in the different colors from hers. Great job!
Hugs,
Georgia

Wow, wow and wow, Brenda! You've worked magic with your MCT goodies, and your case of Cindy's card is stunning! I haven't used my vintage labels, curly labels or flower dies for a while, so you've sparked ideas! Once I'm 'reunited' with my cuttlebug, I may have to case YOUR card! Thank you for your sweet comment on my post today; so glad you like my "mobile crafting unit' limited creations!

Wow! Two beautiful cards for sure. Loved the dp you chose for each card, as it made such a different look using similar elements. Great way of using the pretty Cardz sentiments and you've combined those patterns on the sentiment pieces so wonderfully well. Your flowers are astounding too. Really like the color & dimension you achieved on each card. Well done- You! TFS & Hugs
