Come take a look......

I've been a busy gal lately....I just finished up my cards for our last card club next week. We take a summer break and resume back up in September.
This months theme was anything goes and here's my take.

I used my new Martha Stewart deep edge heart punch for the bottom front and backed it with a piece of purplish blue card stock to really bring out the design. I stamped the work "Bliss" from a dollar stamp I got at Michael's last year in a deep purple....hmmm....looks blue in the picture.
I digress...the flower I die cut using my Hello Kitty Bigz flower die from Sizzix. I used two different colors of purple...a light sparkly lavender and the same purple used for the bottom of the card. For the centers, I just put some white glue that dries clear and sprinkled with white iridescent glitter.
I than used Spellbinders Labels 11 dies for the foundation of the flower...both in the same two purple shades of the flower. I than sponged the edges in two different shades of purple.
Their quite stunning in person.

This a RAK I received from Aissa on YT & FB. She commented on my homemade bow easy, so I made one and sent it to her.
This is the beautiful card enclosed with all the that stamp!

I was blown away when I opened the package to find all these goodies inside...all Tim Holtz die cuts....and of course I don't have a one of these dies yet....I just got my Cuttlebug and have to now start building my stash of dies.
I am picky on the dies that I do buy....I'm not an impulse buyer anymore so I choose!
You can see from the picture above there was a large piece of die cut chipboard full of fibers....lovely and each one will be put to good use.
Below is the first envelope full of die cuts....I'm sorry to say I didn't stick around at the Sizzix warehouse sale last November to get the Heart Wing I wish I had....maybe this year.
I like the Sewing Room die...very vintage and lots of possibilities.
I really like the hanging sign die...that was another one I almost got but hubby said no not practical....last time I listen to! The Baroque die is quite large...I think I would like the mini one.....tho this one is a nice shape.

The next package had the dies below in it....not quite sure what the frame one is but I like it...almost reminds me of "Snow White" mirror, mirror on the wall....heehee!
Like the large scalloped circle dies...nice and big.
Love the Tags and Bookplate dies....that tag is huge....SWEET and the bookplates are a nice size too. And of course the Gears one....what can I say other than how cool are they!!!! They'll be put to use in my hubby's anniversary mini I'm making him.

Thank you again Aissa for your sweet generous gift. I didnt' realize how amazing these dies are until I saw them close up and personal...♥
