As promised (hehe) I am sharing some of GORGEOUS RAKS that I have received in the last month or so. I have also included a special song for you while you view these amazing cards and if you have some extra time... Don't forget to make some of your favorite popcorn! :) Enjoy the show! LOL :)

The second card was made using the NEW Cuttlebug embossing folder "Just My Type". I used the Stampin' Up! set Embrace life and to make the flowers pop a little, I added a little white detail with my white gel pen. Since the colors are so soft and elegant I had to use my Janome sewing machine (which I am addicted too) on the card. The ribbon was just the final touch to make the card flow.
Recipe - Stamps: Embrace Life Paper: Creamy Caramel, Very Vanilla, Blush Blossom Ink: Close to Cocoa Accessories: Nestabilities - Cut At Home, Cuttlebug - Just My Type, Ribbon, Janome Sewing Machine, White Gel Pen.
Please stop by after dinner, I have a special card to show all of you that I am sending to June along with some beautiful RAK's. Have a wonderful day!

Today's card is for Our Creative Corner challenge, which is every Saturday. This is my last week hosting and for my last challenge of the month, I thought we would try "Christmas in July".
I had something totally different in mind for a card but then it came to me to do something a little bit different. I LOVE this holiday paper from Stampin' Up! and was so glad to know I stocked up on this beautiful paper last year.
The card measures 3 1/2 x 10 1/2 x 7. I scored the card every 3 1/2". As I decorated the card, I sort of just made it up as I went along and since I had my little handy sewing machine out, you guessed it... I added some fun stitching on my card as well.
Please check out the other girls from Our Creative Corner, the samples will most definitely put you in a holiday mood. Well, a Christmas in July holiday mood! LOL :)
Recipe - Stamps: Naughty or Nice Paper: Real Red, Very Vanilla, Dashing Ink: Black Accessories: Ribbon, Janome Sewing Machine, Circle Punch.
Well, I hope all of you enjoy your weekend! Thanks so much for all of your wonderful comments and thoughtful emails.

I have two cards to share with you today. The first card is for the Mothers & Daughters Creations Challenge. Every Thursday a NEW challenge is posted. For today's challenge, you are to create a card using your favorite Bo-Bunny paper. If you don't have any, any patterened paper will do.
Look at the fun goodies by Bo-Bunny. Play in our challenge and you could win this awesome candy! Link your card here and a winner will be announced August 1st.
Since I LOVE to color, I reached for this stamp set again along with my wonderful supply of Copic markers! :) To add a little extra detail to the main image, I sponged on some Close to Cocoa ink. The tag was made using my ticket punch.
Please don't pay to much attendtion to the stitching on the card, my sewing machine was being difficult!! LOL :)
