365 cards Day #29 and #3- Caught up FINALLY!

DAY #29- Funny story here! I decided to create my card for day #29 at 365 cards and to table #3 because of the flowers. I just couldn't think of anything. So, the challenge for today was another Sunday Sketch Challenge. It's a great sketch but I couldn't get my circles right. I was trying to turn them into flowers and everything and just couldn't get it right. SO, it got me thinking about the Simply Scrappin (SU!) kit in my craft closet and I decided to see if there were 3 flowers in the correct sizes to use. There were!! I felt like I was cheating! It was SO easy. So I went to stick some buttons on and decided that I better jazz them up some. So I added some tied ribbon to each one and attached them. Added the sentiment and created a gorgeous card for a special graduate I know. I stood back and admired it. Then I realized that it was a perfect card for challenge #3! (Buttons, Ribbon, and Flowers) LOL! So, here is my #29 card:


DAY #3- So, I get to my card for day #3. I found this beautiful scrap of patterned paper that Sara (Finkerdoodles) gave me. Then, I added an image from a swap on Mommysavers. Then, I added one of my button/ribbon embellishments. (I got the idea from Mish's blog ) Another simple card but I really like it. I think this is a good "I'm praying for you" card.

I forgot to comment on the 2nd card - love it! I love Mish's ribbon/button tags. I've used those and they always add just the right touch - great card!
