Bumbling Fun...

Good Monday afternoon, friends :)
I had a bit of playtime this afternoon to bumble around...
and this is what I created...

For all of my cards, I used...
it's our very first challenge!
Colors where chosen by our very own, Alison :)

For my first card only,

- Raise The Bar Challenge #12 - April Showers! (It's sunny today!)

I am in love with my Beeez Kneez Kit -
especially the Nikki Sivils Stamp that came with it!!!
This stamp set is called Willowbee! 

Such a perfect lil set for my bumbling self ;)
... and I {heart} Sunflowers sooo much!

I kept my first card simple, I was trying to do a one layer card, lol!
I just couldn't leave it alone ;)

For my next card,

(1 stamped image/sentiment, 2 DPs, 3 Embellies: Ribbon, Bow, Punch)

On this card, I used Jillibean Soups "Diced Tomatoes" DP
and Bazzill "Pineapple Bliss" CS also from the kit...

I love the print on this paper!
Here's a close up...

... and onto the last card!

Other than paper piecing twice, lol,
I have never stamped and colored on dp!
And I'm loving the results!!!

On this card, I used Jenni Bowlin "Lemonade" DP
"Pineapple Bliss" CS again and Yellow Pom Pom Trim
also from the kit ;)

I love all of these cards! I keep forgetting how fabulous that edge punch looks, might just have to put it right in front of me on the table - you know- where it can get buried :)
