A couple more before bed

Well the Patriots lost - my husband is sad. But the Giants WON and my dad is happy. I'm just glad it's all over. Here's a couple of cards I made today in between a SU party and the Superbowl.

I have had this idea for using eyelash yarn for a while and this morning I decided I would just go for it. Needs some work, but it was fun. I am so totally loving this Cloud 9 Designs paper and how it looks with the SU grays and the burgundy (see the next card)

On this card I used:
Stamps: Mike's $
Ink: regal rose
Paper: going gray, basic gray, regal rose, ww, Cloud 9 Designs Razzberry Swirl DP
Accessories: eyelash yarn, misc ribbon, punches, stickles.

On this one I used a wire heart embelishment that I got at Hobby Lobby when they were on sale. I
'm not sure about it though. The card is missing something.

Stamps: none
Paper: going gray, baroque burgundy, whisper white
Ink: some going gray and regal rose sponged on the circle
Accessories: punches, wire heart, misc ribbon

I am approaching 1000 hits and so I'm putting up some BLOG CANDY - just leave a comment below and get som
e nice spring colored ribbons and some stamps to use on those Easter cards! I'll use on Thursday, Feb. 7 to select the winner.

Thanks so
much for visiting my blog. Here's the candy!
