LIM - A Touch of Turquoise

There is a color challenge this week at the Less Is More blog; a touch of turquoise.  Turquoise is one of my favorite colors and this Memory Box ballerina die filled my thoughts when I saw the challenge.  I'm late submitting because work & life got in the way this week, but I had time to put ink, die and gems to paper today so here's my card:

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and don't forget:
Be your own kind of Beautiful!

Splatter #1

I recently received 2 stencils from stamping friends and although this new "craze" wasn't something I jumped on board for I decided to try one of the stencils today.  I took inspiration for my card from the sketch at  Case this Sketch challenge blog; here's my 1st stenciled card:

Here's the sketch:

I added some beads to give the card interest.

Thanks for stopping by, we are having a Spring snow here in the foothills, brrrrrr!!

3 Poppies

There is a recipe challenge of "3" at the Less is More blog this week; put "3" of something on your cards and comment on "3" peoples blogs (as there are always so many beautiful cards to gather inspiration from, this is easy).  I recently added some Technique Tuesday stamps to my collection and I used the poppies from one of my stamp sets for my "3" card:

I just love Poppies of all colors, here are some orange poppies with a tint of yellow.

Thanks for stopping by today, Spring is in the air, green and colors are coming to us soon!
