Thinking of you

It's Monday evening here and I've just finished my shaped card for Week 69 on the where Mandi and Chrissie have challenged us to produce a shaped card (not square or rectangle).
I've used a Spellbinder shape and cut two panels . I've scored one at the top and used it to form the back. 
I've used an embossing folder on the top of the front panel and added a ribbon on the join. I made some rolled paper roses from dp and added leaves made with a  Stampin Up punch. The sentiment is from Papertrey Inc.

Thanks for taking a look at my card and thanks for your kind comments last week.

Hello everyone, it's been a lovely weekend for gardening and card making here .
Sunny and warm during the day and crisp as evening approaches.
The challenge at  for week 68 is for a themed card, and the theme is Baby or Child! I'm in need of some of both so I've made some baby cards to start with and I'll be back later on in the week with some cards for children.

I think the first and last card fit the LIM criteria but I think the second is my favorite.
The stamps are from Whimsie Doodle. I've placed some paper piecing on each card. I've added a second photo of number 3 so that you can see the small paper strip which is visible behind the border when the card is closed. 

Thanks for looking!
I do appreciate your comments!

Sail Away "Less is More"

Hello everyone. It's been a while since I posted....and I've missed some great challenges.The weather is cooling and I should have more time inside in the months to come.
Here is my Yellow card for the "Less is More" Challenge !

I've used yellow distress ink ( Mustard Seed) on cream card and the stamps are from darkroom door. 
I did this yesterday... but I couldn't get the new blogger to work for me. I notice the second photo has a shadow again but now I need to head off to work! Sorry!
