Here's My heart for you....

Here's an adorable image from SSS Artist Sherri Baldy.  Isn't this girl the cutest?  I just love her images, this is Img157.  The challenge this week is to create a card with some homemade flowers on it.  I have added two here in some yellow and sparkly paper.  I also added a fun butterfly die cut that I got recently.

Drop by the SSS Challenge blog this week and join in the fun.  If you have a winning card, you will get a bunch of free stamps from SSS!!

The question for the day is, do you like to add flowers to your cards?  do you use store bought or handmade flowers (either die cuts or hand crafted?)  Personally, I love adding flowers and typically I use store bought flowers.

Be sure to keep your eye on the winner list, it got updated last night and winners are listed through Feb 9th!! You can access  it by clicking on the image in the upper right hand column.  ALSO, if you are new visiting, be sure and leave a comment on Feb 1st!  that's the main prize location for the month of which the grand prizes will be drawn.  You are also welcome to go back through the last week, from Feb 10 through today and leave comments as winners for those days have not yet been chosen! click the Home link to go to the main blog.

Love the warm summer colors on this card. Your image is adorable. I add flowers to my card. I use a mixture of store and punched flowers.

Natalie said...

I love flowers, but I use more flat ones, because I send a lot of cards by mail and I don´t like the 3D flowers to get all flat.

Cheri Stockburger said...

I Love the card, cute and sassy, cheery colors, great job. I haven't used a lot of flowers as I am just beginning but love them so would like to. I would like to make mine so much fun to make your own.

Holley, I don't know where you find the time to create so many wonderful cards. I just love how you colored up this image. If I had little girls again I would dress them just like this.

Loved your card today, especially the colors you used. The layout is great and the flowers are very pretty. I use some store bought flowers, but also make layered flowers as I have several templates from Paper Wishes that I use.

Gorgeous card. Love the bright colours and the butterfly. I used to use bought flowers. Since getting Cheery Lynn build a flower and cutie dies I make my own. These dies are so easy to use and make gorgeous flowers

What a darling card! I do like to add flowers to my cards. My problem is to edit them to a reasonable number!

Stacy H-W said...

Such a pretty card!! Love that image and the colors you used!! Bright and happy! I love to add flowers to my cards. I do both purchased and homemade.

cebelica said...

Oh yes, this girl is super cute. And your card is so positive. I love the bright colours. Simply gorgeous. The butterfly and flowers look awesome too. I personally love using flowers on my cards. And butterflies as well. lol There are barely any cards I made that don't have one of those things (though usually thy have both :P). I sometimes use store bought flowers, but I often make my own as well (using die cuts), because I don't always have store bought flowers in colours that would match the papers I used.
Hugs! xx

Love the flowers -again, never thought to dig in my sewing stash. I usually use a flower punch. Love the look of 3-D, but always worried about the getting smushed. Fabric ones look like the answer:)

Hope I can post. Don't know what I'm doing wrong. Anyway, this card is so cute and the bright colors are very cheerful and uplifting. Very nice.

Gemiel said...

Another gorgeous card!!! Love it! I use flowers on my projects quite often. I love store bought ones like Primas but I also use a lot of die cut and punched flowers that I make myself.

Lisa Lucchese said...

rovianne said...

Lovely card. And yes I always put flowers on a card. Either handmade or storebought. That depends on the cardlayout.

Josephine said...

Beautiful colours and flowers!

Shelley said...

Beautiful! I do use flowers, but almost never make my own. I do have a few origami flower patterns and make then using magazine pages. But 99% of the time it is store bought flowers, even old artificial ones from yard sales or thrift stores can be washed and cut apart.

Trish said...

Hi Holley,
Fab image and lovely card, TFS.
I love using flowers of any sort on my cards...there's a need for all types!
Hugs,
Trish x

Leanne said...

Colorful & beautiful.

Melody Strahan said...

I love that butterfly! Which company makes it?

I use all different kinds of flowers. I have a few clear shoe boxes with color families of silk flowers of all sizes. I also hand make some from time to time. I have a few flower dies that I use pretty regularly, and I doodle them everywhere! I think it's safe to say I am in love with flowers too. lol

Barb F said...

This card is the cutest of the cutes!!!! I just love what you did with it!

Kim said...

I forsee this image jumping into a shopping cart and coming home with me! I love this card. I love to put flowers on my cards. I prefer store bought, but can never find what I'm looking for and end up making them. Great Job.

Pat said...

Cute cards, love the bright colors. I love using flowers on my cards and on my canvases. I choose handmade flowers, but nowadays you can buy so many that look handmade! LOL

Catherine said...

Cute card.. Love the butterfly color and the cute image.
Love using Quilled flowers in my projects. But ready made flowers always come in handy when i am in a hurry making my cards.

Hugs

i love to add flowers to my cards, they make a wonderful and pretty addition, i usually make my own flowers, i love to browse youtube on how to make flowers for the cards.

postalorphan said...

Very cute card - love the bright colors, and the accents are perfect! I do like to add flowers, but if I'm mailing the card I tend to stick to very flat ones, as the post office machines will chew up anything too lumpy.
