Febuary Team Blog Hop

Hello Crafty Friends,
   This months featured paper pack is Hello Lovely. I just love it!! its one of those paper packs that are really easy to use! For our Team Brea-ers   blog hop we will feature projects made with this paper pack. If you have come from emilys scraproom then you are in the right place. Here is my first project: This Layout uses the compliments. I found inspiration from Monique Create's layout but I used 4x6 photos and changed the papers and added ribbon.
I also made some cards, scraplifted this card from this site http://scrapstampshare.blogspot.ca/
And this card is an original I made for my mom. The flowers are from the January stamp of the month (I still love it) and coloured with my copic markers.

I hope you have gotten some inspiration. For more inspiration please continue on to Sheena's Blog.
Would love your comments, even if I don't reply its nice to read!
Come back tomorrow for the card I made for next week's Atlantic Hearts sketch Challenge
Michelle.

Sketch # 195

Hello Crafty Friends,
   This week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge they have a great sketch for you! Here is the sketch..
Image may contain: text
I have made two cards, one horizontal as the sketch suggests and then one vertical..
 I also used the January stamp of the month, some left over paper from the card kit dreaming big and white glitter paper with the hearts thin cuts and markers to colour the flowers. I think they need more texture on the back ground.
Which one do you like best?
What will you make with this sketch?
