Designer Friday

Happy Friday all!  I have two beautiful cards to share with you today, from designers Windy and Mandie.  I love how easy it is to dress up a card with a Precocious Paper flower - a little patterned paper, a sweet sentiment, and the embellishment does all the rest for you.

Windy created this beautiful card with an Autumn Leaves Dyed Cardboard Flower:

To create card:
1) make card from cardstock
2) adhere patterned paper rectangle and strip
3) adhere metallic pearls
4) adhere sentiment letters
5) adhere flower

Products used: flower: Autumn Leaves Dyed Cardboard Flowers, cardstock: Vintage Cream by Papertrey Ink, patterned paper: Curio collection by Basic Grey and Autumn Harvest by Making Memories, embellishment: metallic pearls by Mark Richards, stickers: Tiny Type by Cosmo Cricket

As part of the Attitude of Gratitude challenge, I love what Windy shares here: "Ultimately I am thankful for all that is in my life... the good, the bad and even the ugly....because all of that has made me and my family who and what we are today. And I have to say that I'm pretty proud them, because even though we are far from perfect, we live a pretty good life together and I'm extremely thankful for that."

From autumn to winter, we next have a snowy card from Mandie:

Mandie found beautiful blue snowflake paper in her stash to create her background with.  She  layered a light blue Lace and Felt Flower (this color coming soon to the shop!) onto a scalloped circle that she created with her Mini Monograms Cricut Cartridge.  Finishing touches include pretty satin ribbon and an embossed sentiment.

As for my Attitude of Gratitude thoughts for the day, today I'm grateful for my role as a mother.  After spending hours upon hours yesterday cleaning and doing laundry (our recently washed clothes were inundated by ants!), I reminded myself that even though my daily tasks may not be glamorous or fun, I love doing them.  I'm grateful for the opportunity I have to serve my family, love them, teach them, and be with them.  I wouldn't trade this job for any other in the world.

Thank you for stopping by!  If you get a chance, I have layouts featured today on the Scrapbook Circle blog (later today) and the Papercrafts Inspirations blog.  Thank you, Windy and Mandie, for sharing your creations with us.  Have a wonderful Friday, everyone! Tessa
