Flowers, Pearls, Numbers and Buttons

I get to share a couple projects that include all of those goodies.
 My Card Positioning Systems card for this week shows off the flowers and the pearls.  Our sponsor is Want2Scrap bling.  You really need to check out the wonderful goodness this company offers, especially is you love bling. The pearls and rhinestones shapes are meant to match Spellbinders dies.
 I used a scallop oval Spellbinders Nestabilities and an oval one to fit inside the scallop one.  The oval of green pearls fit in exactly.  The flower is from Recollections. 
 This is the Unscripted sketch for this week. I love this sketch, it was so fun to use.
 I have a brand new Cricut cartridge by Close to My Heart, Art Philosophy.  I LOVE this thing. I can see that I will be using it many, many times. 

 The little row of numbers is a border from that cartridge. This sketch had an additional challenge of using numbers on the card.
And, for a couple photos...
This is what we did for Memorial Day. It was really brave of our youngest grandson to jump into his uncles arms!  I used my Hipstamatic app on my phone for the fun, old fashioned effect. 

A cool photo of our puppy dog too. I love how this film/lens combination is a black and white with a tiny hint of color. 
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
