Today we are sharing our projects and cards using Grand Tags and Pretty Patterns.

Here are 2 cards I made using Grand Tags.
When I was making this 1st one my 1st thought was "my mema would NOT have liked to get a card like this", LOL...she never let her silver hair show, hehe :)  but she did have a heart of gold.


Here's my card using Pretty Patterns........................
and it's MESSED up!
I brought it to work this morning to take a picture and set my pen on it...and somehow ink from the pen got on the card :(
BUT that's life, right?  keepin' it real for y'all!

I hope you like the cards I made and that you enjoy today's blog hop!!!

Check out all the amazing designs and inspiration:
PLEASE have a fabulous day!
See you tomorrow with another inspiring blog hop with the new Gina K. Designs stamps!

  41. Very nice cards. I really like the blue tag. The oops card is brgging to be covered with some bling:-)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love your cards. And, a little "oops" happens to all of us and that just goes to show that it is a stepping stone to more creativity as I am sure you can figure out a way to remove that oops. Some inks can be removed with a paper stump dipped in bleach too if it is on white cardstock.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love your cards! Oops are what embellishments are for!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Great card and love that you shared the opps with us!

    ReplyDelete
