A Few Cards to Share

Lately, I have been a little lax on sharing some of my Design Team cards. I've had a whole bunch posted lately on the A Muse site, as well as on The Saltbox Studio site, so I thought I'd post them here, too. Plus, I have a bonus card with some of the new images from The Saltbox Studio.

These sunflowers from The Saltbox Studio are great! I love sunflowers in a garden, but I have not been successful myself; I've always had to cut flowers from my parent's garden.

I added seed beads to the flowers' centers. Here's a close-up:

Here is another card, good for any patriotic occasion or a member of the US military:

And this one was sentiment-inspired. I just thought it was funny and Farmer Hare came to mind: out, standing in his field, looking for carrots. I have another idea to go with this sentiment, just haven't had time to put it together.

This was featured yesterday as one of the inspiring ideas on the A Muse News blog. *Just a tip, for this one. If you try something similar, watch the placement of your sentiment in relation to the pumpkin stack's arm. If you use black for both, it isn't very readable. That is why I used purple for the upper part of the sentiment.*

And, finally, another summer/patriotic card with some of the new images from The Saltbox Studio. I love the bunting stamp, so I created it as a border at the bottom of the card, colored with colored pencils, and cut around the edge. This could be used for a housewarming or welcome to the neighborhood card.

Ok, I shared lots here this morning, but I will have a sneak peek later today, so please check back!!!
