Simple Flower Card

I got me some new paper at Hobby Lobby today... so of course I had to make a card....I think I could make cards all day every day if only I could!!... this one is pretty simple... its prettier in person... I wish it had a little more "somethin, somethin"... but I had to just settle for this... hope that you like it! Thanks for looking! ~~ Hugs, Jeannie

Center of flower made by cutting a long 3/4 inch strip and cutting little slice into the paper on the short side all the way down the strip...then using my quilling tool and twirling the paper with the printed side in... then folding the cuts out....I used a much shorter piece on the inside so it would lay flatter.

A Butterfly In The Flowers

Southside, Al
I got my new camera last night...had to make a card to see if it would take better pictures... it does....but I still have some learning to do.... getting the color to come out right is hard.... be glad when I get past the learning curve....and I do hate those huge handbooks!!..... I also had to play with my new Scor-It ... I am loving those lines... hope you like this one... did a little layering of the flowers...hand cut those from the paper... that corner needed something and this added just the right touch I think.... thank you so much for looking and for your comments.... aren't those comments we get so encouraging!.... ~~Hugs Jeannie

The Missing Piece

Designed by Jeannie Phillips
Southside, Al
I made a card for Craig earlier but didn't like it... we had cake for him and Sharon at work today so I made him a new one!!.... Craig had to pass a test before he could do his practice teaching and graduate.... it was a hard test... he took it 4 times ... we were all so excited when he passed this time..... so I though this puzzle piece with the male teacher on it would be wonderful for Craig a card.... masculine cards are so hard!!.... so I was tickled when this one turned out... only my second time to do circle text.... I was so excited that it turned out so well!!.... thanks for looking! (My camera was messing up and I was in a hurry so I didn't get good pictures this morning... made the card before that is love! lol... I did get a new camera tonight!)
