Guest Designer: Kim!

Good Morning! My name is Kim from Scrapin Mom Of One Inspiring Little Boy . I was beyond thrilled and excited when Liz from Liz's Paper Loft asked me to Guest Design on her blog. I know I don't have to tell you all how creative, talented and sweet she is! We share a common love ~ houndstooth! Anyway ~ Liz is recovery from surgery. Please make sure you leave her some love and encouraging words to lift her spirits. I am sure they will brighten her day! So for my card today I wanted to use a color I generally don't work with! So I chose to use the color orange. My son LOVES this color and is always asking me to make something orange. So I thought to myself ~ why not! I made this card for a friend who has been under the weather lately and I hope this lifts her spirits! I just got the Flower Shoppe cartridge and have yet to really play with it. If you have been to my blog before ~ I LOVE flowers! I think they are so beautiful and fun to work with. Plus I really need Spring to come ...FAST! After I finished my card, I realized it has Halloween written all over it! But I have to say, I really like how this turned out despite that fact! LOL!  


Materials Used:
Cricut Cartridge ~ Flower Shoppe ~ cut @ 3 1/2
My Creative Time ~ Script Type Backgrounds ~ background and flowers
My Creative Time ~ Teeny Tag Greetings  w/ Teeny Tag Dies ~ dies and sentiments
 Paper ~ Paper Trey Ink and Recollections
Stampin Up and Stazon Ink
Ribbon ~ Paper Trey Ink

Liz has some exciting news to share with you, but not quite yet. However, in the meantime, while she's recovering, she is reading every comment! Not only is she reading them, she's counting them, because at the end of all this, she will have two announcements! The first will be a winner of some exciting BLOG CANDY! The second, it's a big one...and no, she's not coming out with stamps...you just have to wait and see!

Thanks, Kim, for your FABULOUS card and help during my recovery!

Enjoy!

What a fun card! I've been loving orange myself lately so really like this! I'm guessing that Liz got accepted to a design team..and that's what she's going to announce...but I guess we'll just have to wait. Hoping you're healing with no problems Liz!
