2 for Tuesday again!

Just by chance I happen to have two cards today.

The first is one I quickly worked up last night. I was using an older SU stamp set and just playing around with scraps near me when I realized I had stamped the flowers upside down on the tag and it looked good! So I started with that stamped tag and went from there.
I love this PP. I have so much stocked away you wouldn't believe it. There are 8 designs in this collection and I like them all. I use them frequently to make altered notebooks. When I pulled them out I realized that they match the new river rock CS from SU perfectly, so I added some of that in too.

The second is an older one, about 2 1/2 years old actually. It was the first card I made when I got my "printed pattern" background stamp that I had been wanting. My friend Bobbie sent it to me as a gift! I have to warn you that this card is scary. That's probably why I never sent it to anyone!

The reason I'm showing it today is because when I saw Beate's weekend sketch, it looked familiar. I browsed through tons and TONS of old card photos before I saw it! Now, granted, my card is turned 90 degrees, but it still follows the sketch! It uses all Bazzill CS (I was into the monochromatic thing for a while), and a stamp from Stampington and Co. I was really into the "distressing" thing too, if you couldn't tell! *chuckle* I think there are five different colors of monochromatic CS on that card, not including the white! Good grief. I cringe looking at some of my older cards now...what was I thinking?!
