Homespun...

Just a bit of card inspiration for you today made with the new Homespun Mini Papers and journaling cards by Jenni Bowlin!

On the first one, I used the green checked journaling card on the front. I cut out the little square to house my buttons (a.k.a. cherries). The inside says, "Wishing you a sweet day!" But you could also use it as a thank you card and write, "you're sweet" or something similar.

The next card says, "Oh How I Miss You!" The background paper is Red Lined Ledger Paper, labels are new Multidotted Label Stickers, button is from the new Vintage buttons and heart tickets....everything is Jenni Bowlin. I made some of my little ribbon roses to go with it.












Banners seem to be so popular these days, so these new banner stickers by Jenni are really fun! They come in a few different colors. I attached them to a string of pearls and then punched a little hole up in the top corner and tied the pearls on with a bit of hot pink embroidery floss. This card could be used as a baby announcement or card for someone who just had a baby. OR birthday, congratulations....the banners are really useful for several different occasions!I stitched the little ticket on with pink stitching.
This one was inspired by these new Mini Sport Bingo cards. You get "team, cheer, win, score, play, and shoot" in the pack. I immediately thought of a thank you card for a coach.
The background paper (green) is from the Mini Homespun papers and chipboard star and new button are by Jenni also. I've had someone ask me about the letter stamps. They are by EK Success and I bought them here. Added a bit of black stitching.
Taylor's been off from school this week for a winter break, so we've been quite busy...went to the movies (Tooth Fairy - pretty cute), the mall, played lots of board games, cards, Wii, had play dates, went out to eat, etc. And we had some new snow yesterday! Trying to keep them busy...and it's exhausting! :)

Well, that's about it here. Have a good weekend!

Dani, your cards are so beautiful, as always! I wonder if you'd ever be willing to do a post that talks about your design process. I'd love to get inside in your head! LOL!
