Isn't it lovely.....

I have never been interested in card making.  I admire those that make cards and I love to see what they create.  When I make cards, it is usually done with not much thought and 30 minutes before I need to give it.  That is...until I saw this:
 
and fell instantly in love....

These cards are by the very talented Melissa Phillips and for sale through Scrappy Gourmet.  Obviously it would be all sold out.  Melissa was kind enough to send me the instructions to make them.  I could not find all the embellishments she used and my cards looks nowhere as gorgeous as hers...but give me a break okay...this is the first time I try my hands at such beautiful cards.

Card 1
 
Card 2
 
Card 3
 
Card 4
 Card 5
 Card 6
 Card 7
 Card 8
Card 9
Card 10

I think it is safe to say that the bug has bitten...and I am hoping to make some more gorgeous cards.

  18. Hi...I've been away from blogging because of our move from Michigan to Florida. I've just read that you got some great news from the doctor. God hears our prayers...praying the news continues to be like sweet music to the ear.

    These cards are amazing!!! I love making cards, well, um copy cat-ing homemade cards. ; ) One day I will take the time to do this. I really like the last five or so...simply wonderful.
