Kiss Me

Hello and a wonderful start in a long fun 4. of July weekend. Luckily, i was able to make most of my cards for the entire July already 2 weeks ago. This gives me some free time for guests iam expecting and for my 3 week Florida vaccation. Iam sure some of you have noticed, that i have not finished my cards in the inside anymore. It is a shame, but i thought it is nicer to have something on my blog, rather nothing at all for 3 weeks straight :-)




I have stamped Doralie (all bundled up) and added to her hat and cape Liquid Applique and to the ground Stickles.
Papers are all scraps from Making Memories 2009 Valentines line and Stampin Up (Very Vanilla, Close to Cocoa)
Embellishements: Martha Stuart (pig pearls), Stampin up (all ribbons and hardware), Liquid Applique and Stickles
Tools: EK Success swirl punch
The sketch for this card can be found over at the Friday Challenge blog. Thank you!

Such a cute card Claudia, your sketch is just brilliant...as they always are...thanks for the challenge!
I'm not too worried about seeing the inside..it's the outside that's more important! I think we all have the general idea for insides now... it's just more work and more pictures, not easy when you have a family to look after too....especially if you're preparing for a holiday.
Well done for making so many cards in advance, you are incredibly organised! Can't imagine not seeing one of your cards for three weeks!
