Two cards to share with you today. This weeks CASual fridays challenge (Create a 4 x 9 card and keep it Clean And Simple!) was too good to resist, so I made not one but two cards.

Here is the first card, “you are a sweetheart”

Very clean and straight lines with a hint of scallop and little machine stitching here. The ribbon flowers were fun to make. I adhered them onto the card using glue dots. EAsy peasy. I used these Play date Cafe colors for this card and kept it really simple.

The second card, is a “happy birthday” card. I cut out 1 inch squares from various colors of felt and sewed them onto a patterned paper. For the card, I added some texture in the form of white squares. Rounded the corners and added a border punch to the bottom.

For this card, I used the color inspiration from this  Tuesday Trigger from the  Moxie Fab World,

Quick pregnancy/baby update. Baby is now overdue by 2 days. Am so huge and uncomfortable, cannot wait to have this baby!! Meanwhile, I have all this unplanned free time, so I make cards 🙂

  2. What beautiful cards! I love the cozy feel they both capture, while staying simple. Your ribbon flowers are perfect, too, by the way. I feel for you being overdue…my first two children each came before their due date so I expected the same with my third. He was almost a week past and oh my does each minute feel like an eternity! Try to find some rest during the waiting & good luck!
