I couldn't pick just one!

I have 3 cards to share today...I loved all of them and kind of felt bad for wanting to choose one over the other. (Is it bad that I am getting emotionally attached to my cards?)

OK, so the first card is this little baby kitten one. My mom got me that adorable Baby Kitty stamp for Christmas this year, and I just love makes me want to go get another kitten.

As always, I inked the edges with Colorbox Chalk Ink. Seriously, if they ever stop making that ink, I don't know what I'll do with my paper edges!

Stamp: Penny Black
Patterned Paper: DCWV
Ribbon: Offray
Markers: Close to My Heart "Spring Blossom"
Ink: ColorBox Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink (edging), VersaFine Jet Black (stamped image)

And this next card is another little bitty's a lot of fun to challenge yourself to make something big out of something so small. It measures in at 4"x4". I used my crystal Stickles on each of the middle parts of the BasicGrey flowers, it's much sparklier in real life.

Stamps: Hero Arts ( f4899, cl182)
Paper: Basic Grey Urban Prairie "Ladybug"
Ink: ColorBox Amber Clay Chalk Ink (edging), VersaFine Jet Black (stamped images)
Ribbon: Offray
Crystal Stickles

And to hopefully convince Spring to get here sooner, I made this Happy Spring card. (If I make spring cards, it has to be spring, right?) Inkadinkado's Patterned Bugs stamps set is beautiful! (Thank you Mom for getting it for me!) I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder "Perfectly Paisley" on the Basic Grey Paper. (And sorry for the crooked didn't want to cooperate, and after 5 tries I gave up!)

Stamps: Inkadinkado "Patterned Bugs"
Paper: Basic Grey Urban Prairie "Bluebird", "Morning Glory", and "Straw"
Flowers: Prima Marketing "Limeade"
Embossing Folder: CuttleBug Perfectly Paisley
Ink: ColorBox Charcoal Chalk Ink (edging), VersaFine Jet Black (stamped image)
Markers: Close to my Heart "Spring Blossom"
Black Rhinestones, Crystal Stickles

Thanks for looking at all 3! I'm sure they all feel better about themselves since none of them have been left out! :)

Have a good day!

These turned out so cute. I don't know which one is my favorite.

I like the kitty image on the first one, the patterned paper on the second and the embossing on the third.
