So we went to Texas this past week for a week of craftiness! And it was just what I needed. We were snowed in so we had nothing to do but relax and play. Before the snow hit we met up with another crafty friend in the area that is a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator and she put on a little get together/card class. She had the You Are Amazing Card Kit for us to split so we could make 2 cards each. I love the stuff in the kit but the cards are not my style so I asked if I could make cards at home in my own style and she said I could. I did not think the shinny blue paper went with these colors and the design just didn’t speak to me. These are my versions made with the kit stuff! Still have a couple more to make but these spoke to me while I was cleaning so I crafted instead of cleaning!!

Watering Can Card: 
I had the watering can and tulips in my die cuts and had not used them yet and they were least in my opinion!!
I used sketch #5 of the Feb Card Sketch Challenge @ I'm also entering it into the Feb Inspirational Card Challenge - product - flowers.

Wild Flowers Card:
I originally did the design horizontal with a big sentiment stamp in the middle and two flower lying across the card. Well my first attempt one of the yellow stripes on the end was way skinner then the other end. So I decided if I turned it horizontal then it looked better. In doing so I took off the sentiment and placed the three flowers and liked it better. This 2nd card I was able to get the yellow layers more even. I used Sketch #1 from the Feb Inspirational Card Challenge (long and skinny 9 1/4 x 3 3/4 fits in long skinny envelope usually used for bills....much better to get this than bills!!) I thought these wildflowers stems #2 from Tim Holtz matched the paper pretty darn good! Was happy how this turned out.
