Yea, I haven't posted recently but that doesn't mean I haven't been card-making!  I do admit, it's been far less than usual though. So here to get you caught up on several that I have made since my last post are 10 of them!

Thanks to my sweet friend Paulette for my awesome new SU punch that she gave me while I was recuperating from a recent surgery!  I love it, and made the first two cards here with it as soon as I was able to get back into my craft room! The DP is from DCWV 6x6 Colorful Life stack.
This heart card uses the "Two of Hearts" die by Cheery Lynn Designs.  All the dies from this company are so delicate!  I picked up several from a Stamp Convention a few months ago and have been using them ever since. 
The big flower here was made using Spellbinders "Rose Creations" die set.  The swirl is two Maya Road chipboard pieces.

This card was inspired by some postings on Pinterest.  (Please tell me you're signed up on Pinterest by now??!!!)  The butterfly is another Cheery Lynn die, and the little lady bug on the leaf embellishment has been in my stash since the day I started hoarding collecting.  Back then, I didn't keep the packaging so I really don't know who the manufacturer is.
This card uses "Jubilee" chipboard pieces from K&Company.


This card uses "Rowdy Boy" chipboard piece from K&Company.

This card and the next card use more of those awesome Cheery Lynn Designs dies.  The one above uses the "Victorian Romance Flourish" and "Exotic Butterflies Small #2".  (Hey, I made those little dimensional flowers using Prima Milk Bottle flowers - see this post here for a better explanation -- scroll towards the bottom of the post!)
The dies used on this card are the "Exotic Butterflies Small #2" die along with "Exotic Butterfly Medium #1" and "Pair of Ferns" die.  Ladies, never hesitate to pick up any of these dies if you find them!  As delicate as the die cuts are, they work really well in the Big Shot and are easy to remove from the die once they're cut.  A really well-made product!  And way too many to chose from LOL!!
Finally, this card is all punching and embellishments.  A big Prima flower, May Road chipboard swirl, scallop boarders with scrap papers and twine.

It's nice to have you here again, I'm so glad you stopped by!

All have such wonderful details and colors. I think my favorite is the Victorian Romance Flourish one - something about those colors together and the border.

I don't know how you keep doing the same thing (making cards) so creatively! Each card is so distinctive and beautiful! Love them all!
