A few cards and off to get a manicure...The first one of spring!

Untold Stories

I used Basic Grey Arhaic Paper
and Urban Rhapsody from K & Company
Then I attached the dragonfly charm, some hardware, some raffia, and another texture would be the cork layers.  Some of the layers are popped off the page.  So definitely some texture going on here!
This Card is for Caarvarks "Don't Quote Me" Challenge

The ribbon is Martha Stewart
The quote is on vellum from Best Occasions and is layered over Garden Whimsy stamped paper using Stampin' up! products on white card stock.
The background layer is Basic Grey Urban Prairie
And the card is made from Core'dinations
Anything but a Card! for My time to Craft.  

I really can craft all night.  After my manicure and pedicure I am going to have a creative evening.  My husband will be in Atlanta for work and won't be home until late tomorrow night.  It's just me and my 4 legged girl friend Maya!  We are talking cheese pizza and chocolate and Jamba Juice!!!  
I used  Lisa's Altered Art on this
Urban Prairie from Basic Grey and Urban Rhapsody from K & Company.
The Sentiment and Ribbon are DCWV
Created by Hand, make something for Mother.

Queen for the day (and then back to the ironing, cooking, dishes, and picking up after the men you live with if you trained them to be slobs!)  I don't have kids, and luckily my husband picks up after himself!   So, I am queen everyday, LOL!
This is an ATC
I used Quickutz Heart with Border die cut
Best Occasions vellum quote matted on Urban Prairie Paper from Basic Grey
Lots of Stickles...Magenta, Candy Cane, and Lime Green.

See you later, alligators!!!
