I am a card machine…

strawberries_blog

This is one of those cards that I started and had no idea where I was going with it and suddenly I hated it… and then I got one of those skillets moments (where you see the rainbow… LOL!!!) and it just came together after that moment in an instant!  I hope you like it too.  There is just one thing that bothers me and it’s that line below the embossing from the folder, I know I read some where that there was a way not to get those lines, so I have to look for that link again.  (if you know what I am talking about just let me know). 

A few challenges piled up on this card… (Have you come to visit us at Pile It On! Challenge blog?)

And my favorite card!  ok… when I saw last Sunday’s sketch @ 365 I got goosebumps.  Then I thought of a crocodile card…. and I told my sweet friend Vicki that she could make the crocodile and I would do the Eiffel tower… she did an awesome job w/ the crocodile check it out!

This is such a simple card, but I think it is Hallmark material!  LOL!!!!!  (I am feeling good about myself w/ this card!)  It was hard to figure out how to cut out the Eiffel tower, I was hoping I had a cricut cartridge, but no luck.  Then I saw a SCAL cut and almost bought SCAL just to cut the Eiffel tower (of course I re-considered my stupidity).  So I went to look for images (thanks to Vicki’s awesome idea), and couldn’t find one that had “it”… you know “it”… the “it” factor.  So I did this myself, and I am so proud of it!!!!!!!

Close up, for those that know me you might be surprised that the heart is purple and NOT red.  (for those that don’t know me… I don’t like purple and RED is my fav color).  Some how this was in my scrap pile and it looked nice against the navy blue so I used it and believe it or not I LIKE IT.
