Just a note...

I am getting ready for something that is going to be alot of fun! My sweet friend Amy owns Amelia Beadelias, a super fab beading shop in town!  She has asked me come down for Third Thursday and sell my cards in her shop! I am SO excited!! Right now I am working on some more "trendy" cards so I have a variety of styles to take with me!

Here is a CAS, somewhat trendy card for you today...

I am head over heels for this Dear Lizzy ribbon! I knew when it first came out I had to have it! Now I need more! :)

The green ribbon comes in the same package as the rose ribbon! I thought it looked like a fun color combo in itself!  And I am a huge fan of the white layered cards with just a splash of color! 

And yes I have a new blog header.  And yes I know it is not December yet.  BUT my tree is up.  The lights are on.  The fireplace is nice and toasty.  So yes....it's close enough for Merry Christmas!  (Even though today's card is kinda springy!)  :)


So that is it for today!  Thanks for stopping by!

What a perfect way to use those ribbons! I love this card, especially the embossed panel. Lovely job Laurie!

Keva said...

Oh wow..I LOVE that card. Love the embossed layer and of course the ribbon. This is way cute! Congrats on the card selling "gig"! That's a very cool thing indeed. I like the blog banner..it's close enough to December! :)

Really pretty card! I love how you've kept that ribbon center stage but added just enough interest to the rest of the card. Oh, and I too already have my Christmas tree up! It's been up since a couple of days before Thanksgiving!

Have fun selling your cards - bet they sell like hot cakes!
Hugs,

Oh I see you took out the rose ribbon again...... I have not seen that in sometime!! You must be really excited because I do believe that is not something that comes out for just any card!!! Love the ribbons it looks great against the embossed white!!! xoxox

Dana said...

Love the new header...YOUR TREE IS UP?????? Good grief you are on the ball Laurie.
I'm delighted to hear that you will be selling those gorgeous cards of yours. Maybe I should stop in just to get a Laurie original!
I too HAD to have that ribbon in numerous colors, but it still sits in the original packaging and hasn't been used yet. You've inspired me to get to it!

Jinny Newlin said...

Perfect!! As always Laurie. The all white, with the splash of that gorgeous ribbon is so eye catching and simply elegant. I have my tree up too as of Friday the 26th. A new white tree with blues and silver. Will take pics and post. Thanks for sharing your exceptional talent with us all!

What an amazing opportunity! I'm excited for you!

This card is GORGEOUS. That ribbon makes such a statement, you were wise to let it speak for itself. :o) I'm sure your cards will sell like hotcakes! You're brilliantly talented.

Dana said...

What an exciting opportunity, congrats, Laurie!
Terrific card... You may have sold me on that Fillable Frame, which I was adamantly indifferent to before... ;)
Wish I lived close by so we could craft together on occasion and I could see you in action!! I love learning from you!
By the way, is that an embossing folder or pre-embossed paper?

Bren said...

So elegant. You make it sound so easy, but it does not look easy to make. Great layering

Amy said...

Love the pop of color with that rose ribbon! Is this ribbon similar to the ribbon we bought together at JoAnn's last year in KC? I still haven't used that stuff!

Lisa Petrella said...

Love the clean design and super chic look of this card!!!

Andrea M said...

How absolutely, jaw droppingly beautiful is this?!?! The colors positively leaps off the white cardstock! This card has such a soft, almost romantic feel! Gorgeous!
And, I love the new seasonal blog header! Don't you just love this time of year?
