Influenced by My Environment

Just like best friends who end up talking and acting the same, I am influenced by my environment. I don't know how other bloggers create, but I will tell you that my cards change based on where I am at, who is on my mind, and what I feel inspired by. I also make my cards WAY in advance. So a card you see today, I probably made 3 weeks ago or more. 

This card was made with my friends who don't blog and don't care about keeping it cutting edge. They want a pretty card. SO that's what I made (well hope so anyway)! I have been obsessed with this May Arts ribbon since I saw Vivian Masket use it on a baby card. 

Giving a shout out to my besties: Angela, Caryn and Marcy!!! hehe..

  2. I love this - really gorgeous colors, great mix of images and the ribbon is beautiful!

  3. very pretty & sweet the ribbon action!

  4. I'm with you and where your inspiration comes from. Most of my "for family and friends" cards are inspired by the recipient. This is just the sweetest little card. It's just a perfect baby girl card. Sweet and lovely. Bev

  5. This is really cute. I like that you can be a chameleon with your crafting.....are you one of those people who picks up accents of the people you are with too. That could be funny hee hee.

  6. Man, I got all becited, Wida! I thought you were going to tell us you were having a baby! Adorable card!! Hugs, Darnell

  7. AMMMMMMMMMMAZING! And I LOVE that you work so far in advance! You must teach me how to do that!! It's a foreign concept for me;)

    LOVE this card-- love the soft colors of the inks and papers along with that ribbon! LOVE your coloring! You seriously knock me out of my seat! LOVE:)

  8. Adorable! Love the double flags for the sentiment. The ribbon is awesome....I have some, but can't figure out when to use it.

  9. Beautiful soft colours and that ribbon & bow are soooo perfect too :0)
