2 Lovefest cards

Before we even get to the blog hop for Mark's Finest Papers, you are going to know which of the new releases is my favorite just by looking at my sneak peek cards. I made the top card (a triple easel card) for the LOVEFEST challenges at SCS. The first challenge was to make a card with L.O.V.E. on it. my
O=Orange hibiscus
E=Easel (triple)

This card is also for the Ways to use it challenge WT414 to use Triangles on our card. I used a triangular layout for my hummingbird and two of the hibiscus. The easel also kinda makes triangles when you look at them from the side. 

 My second card is for the second LOVEFEST challenge to make a card using the sketch that Korin with Sweet & Sassy stamps provided. I struggled with this a little at first. I started with the scripture taking up all the oval, but then I couldn't figure out how to place the little banners so that they didn't cover up the scripture. I ended up printing the scripture on a small piece of white cardstock.
This card is also an easel card, but just a simple easel. I decorated the inside with black white and green.
This second card is also for the Free for all challenge F4A156 to go to your happy color. My happy color is green. It makes me think of grass, trees and growing things.

Make sure you come back to my blog on Tuesday when the Mark's Finest Papers February blog hop kicks off. You could have the chance to win this fabulous set: HUM ALONG.

I am also entering the second card in Word Art Wednesday challenge.


  1. This is SO sweet, Marilynn. My mother-in-law just LOVES hummingbirds, so this immediately made me think of her and of how very blessed I am to have her, and my Mom, in my life. I don't ever want to take that for granted. Thanks for sharing - this was such a blessing to me.

  2. Marilynn,
    All the cards are very beautiful/ The color of the hibiscus and the throat on the hummingbird matvhing was a real bonus.
    I have a family of hummingbirds right at my northwinod in the cedars every summer. They are delightful.
    We love that you have taken time to share your wonderful work with us at Word Art Wednesday.
