Happy 1-1-11!

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a safe night last night! We stayed home and I'll be honest, I fell asleep right before midnight! hee But I did wake up when I  heard the fireworks! What can I say, I'm getting old. :)

I've been working on lots of projects for the craft and hobby show, which I can't wait to show you! Meanwhile, I will share a few cards made with the Jenni Bowlin January kits...
On this card, I used the embossed cardstock in the kit and painted it with pink paint (it shows up better in real life!). I loved how the yellow flower looked on the pink, so I left it very simple with a Melissa Frances frame and some gems, along with a 7 Gypsies rub on (add-on kit).
This card was made mostly with the main kit, which I adore....LOVE all of the florals and pretty accents this month! I am in love with the floral paper here. I added some yellow paint to the pull out tag on the pocket and a 7 Gypsies rub on over the top after it was dry. It added some nice color. I adore the canvas tags too! Be sure to stop over and see how everyone used the canvas tags in the gallery!


The squares on the next card made me want to cut some of them out and create a window for my card. I punched a 2" circle and hung it in the window. If your cutting isn't exactly straight on the window, that's ok - just cover up the edges with another piece of paper (don't forget to cover the insides of the window as well).
