Two more cards

This card took on several new faces until I finally got something that looked good. At first, it was intended to have the Elzy on the card below...but for some reason it didn't work. (Something to do with horizontal and vertical spacing, I'm sure.)

I don't remember the manufacturer of the stamp set with the trees (I bought it at Archivers), but the sentiment is the first of Verve's Plain Janes. It is beautiful, and it stamps perfectly.

I can never quite come up with the right sentiment for this Elzy, but I think this works. I used the Pretty Little Papers that I bought at A Muse in Seattle, and also I paper-pieced Elzy's dress. I LOVE paper-piecing.

Addition: Verse stamp by PrintWorks Collection, Inc. which I purchased at Hobby Lobby. It is a clear set of eight verses.

Have a great day!

You've been a busy girl these past few days! I can't decide which new card I like the best. I really like the layout for the "tree card". I can see why you chose the longer image and it's perfect with the flowered paper, border punch and little pearls! Of course, Elzy is always a cutie and she looks adorable in her snazzy little dress. Did you free-hand the verse? It looks great!

Priscilla, I love the colors you used on these cards! They look so refreshing! The floral patterned paper from Pretty Little Papers is beautiful! And the Elzy is colored perfectly to match!
