Card Karma

I love it when, unbeknown to me, I do something that fits right in with a card challenge.  Last night I was cleaning up my stamp area by using up scraps (yes, every once in a great while I actually DO clean!), and I made this card:

Today, I saw that Operation Write Home is having a "Miss You" challenge.   The funny thing is that, when I first "finished" the card, there was no sentiment.  Then I thought to myself, "You can't have a card with NO stamping on the front," so I grabbed a sentiment set and, at random, chose the "i miss you."  That's card karma!!

Paper and stamps are from CTMH.  The lace ribbon was a new purchase from Hobby Lobby, and the embossing folder is from Cuttlebug.

I was on a roll last night, so I'll be posting more cards soon.

Until next time,


  1. Your card is simply beautiful and I like how the sentiment tag is positioned. Glad you saw the challenge because this made a fabulous miss you card! Thanks for playing in our Miss You Card challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps!

  2. This is so pretty! And definitely card karma! I especially like the accordion folded part of the flower. You also make me so miss Hobby Lobby! We moved back home to the Pacific Northwest last year and left our big new one back in TN. Thank heavens for the internet, but it isn't the same as wandering the aisles and picking things up and touching.

  3. Beautiful card! I need to clean up my scraps too, I'd love to have a card or two come out of the "pile" that are as nice as yours :)

    Thanks for playing in our Midweek Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home!

  4. Such a pretty card. I love the colors and the flower!

  5. What a pretty card to come from scraps. When I clean up my scraps, they usually end up in the recycle bin.

  6. One would never have known this was from your scraps. Beautiful color combo -- I really like your accordion folded flower with the little crochet flower on top --cute idea. I really need to clean up my crafting area -- I don't think I'll have the same results as you. :-) Thanks for the inspiration.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. You bless me!
