WOW, this has been the most enjoyable crafting weekend........................

that I've had in months. I've only completed two cards, but I've got another project in the works too! I do think that maybe my "mojo" is coming home!!!! A little earlier today, I was checking out the Splitcoast Stampers "Gallery" and I came across a "hinged" card made by Wendy (aka/Wendybell @ SCS) and she has a fantastic video on how to make it...if you are interested in checking out her video, you can find it here! Well, here is my version of it and I had a blast working on it!!!

Here is a view of it opened up....I've not yet added the wording on the inside, as I will do that when I decide who I going to send it to!

The beautiful crocheted flower was made by my friend Teri's (tlfrank at SCS) mom. Teri was kind enough to send me some and I really treasure them....this is the first time I've used one of them. You know....I think I might be a "hoarder"!!! Here is a close-up of it.

Some time back I bought a "Bow Easy" from Sharon at "No Time to Stamp" blogspot. At here site she has a tutorial on how to use it and if you would like to purchase one and see her tutorial, you can see it here. I made my gingham bow using my "Bow Easy" and here is a close-up of it.

This was fun and thanks for stopping by!!!

That's really a great card Pam! My mom will love seeing her flowers at work. I really like the DP and the way you inked the embossed dots too!

Fabulous card Pam, I've had your blog on my favourites for along time now and I love all your work, it inspired me to get a pazzles and I've not regretted it one second.

Oh wow, Pam!! This is GORGEOUS!! I especially love the little crocheted flower and the corner punch you used on this (I have that punch and haven't used it . . . yet . . . ) Very nicely done, friend! :)
