Good morning! Are you glad that today has FINALLY arrived!! The August release is now available for purchase wooo hooo!! Get ready to fill that shopping cart up because you are going to want EVER single one of the new releases!! The Design Team this week has just left me speechless! Every single project has been jaw dropping!!

Ok, I know I've rattled on enough and your ready to get back to hoping so I'll speed it up a tad hee hee! You should have arrived here from Kim's Blog! If you need to start at the beginning head to Emma's and start there! For my card above, I've used my Imagine and the Imagine cartridge, Enjoy The Seasons! I've added pop dots to the Holly leaves and to the birds wing. I've also added stickles on the berries, the background paper, the bird wing, and it's tail! I've used Emma's, Scallop & Stitch Circle die to stamp my sentiment on. The sentiment is from the set From Our Family To Yours. The red burlap ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.


Here is another card using the From Our Family To Yours! It's a SUPER simple card! I picked up a new Sizzix embossing folder last weekend and was dying to use it! 



I also used this folder on my first card (just cut the top part off) Aren't the little penguins adorable! You can't tell it in my photo but I'm used my JellyRoll StarDust pen and highlighted around them and the edges of my card. It sparkles in person! I've added some red gems and some silver stickles to the middle of the snowflake. That's it! Super quick card!! Thanks for looking and I hope you have a AWESOME weekend! Hugs, Leanne

Next up on the Blog Hop is the talented Liz!

Leanne I was about to comment on how brilliant your first card was, and then I scrolled down to the second one! It is definitely my favourite - such a clean card, simple and elegant. I have a similar embossing folder with a window pane that would house those little penguins just beautifully! Now I just have to wait for my order to arrive in Melbourne... Thanks so much for sharing!

Carol said...

Thanks so much for sharing, love the simplicity of these...sometimes I need a reminder that my 'pile on' techniques...aren't the only way to make my cards. Someone asked me recently how long it took me to make a card...and when I'm in my creative 'zone'...I'm not thinking about time, but I can spend hours on one card!
XOXOX & Blessings,
Carol
