Hello everyone!!  It has been a beautiful weekend but now we are awaiting some thunderstorms.  The sky is darkening and there's a gentle breeze.  I love spring time thunderstorms.  I find them quite soothing.  I know I know silly me.
Well three of us ladies got together last Friday and we all brought card ideas to the table.Surprisingly June and I both felt the need to add a little Christmas and both of us used the color teal in our cards.  We had all gone to Michaels a few weeks ago.  Everything seemed to be on sale in the papercrafting section and we both bought and embossing powder by Recollections called Vintage Mint.  It has a real pretty pale teal color to it with some larger glitter flecks.

I'm really beginning to love this color for Christmas cards.  I think I'll be doing more of them in this color combo.

The card on the left I had used the embossing powder over white pigment ink.  I matted it over a brown shimmer paper.  These two colors go so well together.  The second card I used Tim Holtz distress ink pad in Spruce with clear embossing powder over it.  I added some rhinestones for a little pop.

The next two cards were made as an all occasion type card.  With Mothers Day coming one of the cards was made into a Mothers Day Card but since I no longer have my mother with me (not even my Mother-in-law) I had no purpose for a Mothers Day card so I just made a general card.  Both are adorable.

I suppose we could even used them as Birthday cards.  That's what I love about general cards.
Well I'm going to go and enjoy the rain...Love Love Love the smell of falling rain and listening to the distant thunder.  Till next time................................
