A simple act of kindness deserves a simple card to thank someone for that kindness! The card base is made at 5 1/2" square using Gemstones cardstock from Core'dinations in Pink Diamond. The DP is from the BoBunny a gift of love collection using the Jazmyne Dew Drops. I love the glitter on this card stock. I embellished this card with a pink picot satin ribbon and a large pink posey and stamped the sentiment from SU using Vintage Labels and Whimsical Words and punched it out with coordinating SU punch. Love how these work together and think I will be using them a lot!

We had our semi-annual Girlfriends Scrapbooking Retreat a couple weeks ago and this is the gift bag I made for everyone. The flowers were cut using the Make the Cut software with my Cricut and the borders were punched with the MS zig zag embossing punch, I love the look of this punch! CS and DP are all from CTMH. This was very simple and easy to make. It was fun filling it up with little gifts and treats.
I finally finished the card for the Green, Yellow, Brown challenge on the Bildlamarna challenge blog but I am a day (actually more like a week) late and a dollar short as usual. Sometimes those creative juices just flow kind of slowly (or it could be I am going a little more slowly these days!). Anyway here is the card I finally finished. This little cutie is named Mimosa from the Bildmalarna Stamps which come from Sweden and she reminds me of my precious little granddaughter. I think these stamps are soooo adorable! I colored Little Mimosa using my copic markers: skin (E000, E00, E11 & R20) hair (E25, E29 & E31) ant the Dress (YG0000, YG01, YG03 &Y11, Y13 & Y15). The CS used is the Colonial White Textured for the base from CTMH, Coordinations Gemstone in Citrine, Basic Grey Origins double sided CS and green stripe vellum I had in my stash. I embellished the card with the Layered Vintage Flowers from Creative Charms and accented the flowers with the 3D Vintage Brads Antique Flower also from CC. Can I just say that I love the Vintage look these embellishments give to this card. Here is a close up of the stamped image and the flowers. I also added a couple sprigs of leaves using the MS punch.
