Wow Tina, you've been busy! I think my fav. is the first card but probably bc you know how much I love the Cuttlebug.

P.S. All the stuff you posted recently is amazing (I have to be going and don't have time to comment on all your stuff)

Deb Neerman said...

Love these cards!! My favorite: the birthday card with the animals ... soooo stinkin' cute!

Sally said...

love #2 but i #1 makes me get very excited about owning a cuttlebug. Fantastic cards! Good luck!

Cindy said...

I love #1. It uses cuttlebug, piercing, scalloped circle, and ribbone... all cool techniques!

Kathy said...

Ooooh I just love the cute little animals in card #2. And the distressing on the paper is fabulous! I'd love to win some candy :) Thanks for offering it. Have a great week and GOOD LUCK!

Stampin' Annie said...

I am in LOVE with card #1! I love the bird, the color combo, and the distressed Cuttlebug bg! Just gorgeous!

Julie A. said...

All of the cards are great, but my favorite is card #2 with the animals (probably because I have a 1 1/2 year old son who is going through a phase of loving all animals). I think that he would go bonkers over a card like that! :) Thanks for the chance to win the blog candy.

Annelies said...

My favorite card is the first one. I think it's the sophisticated background that I find attractive.
And I also like scalloped circles, but can't find these punches here in Belgium.
Thanks for a chance to win!

Lastel said...

JenMarie said...

Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy.

I love the first card. YOu used my favorite CB folder, and I really like how you sanded it to make the texture pop. Also, I LOVE that bird stamp. A great color combination, too :)

scfranson said...

They are all so pretty but the first one with the bird is my favorite.

Jaime Warren said...

All three are amazingly done! Wishing you luck on the DT call!

Joan said...

Oh goodness.....All of these are great....I like the cuttlebug background on #1, I love how you distressed the background pieces on #2, and I like how the different pieces are seperated or set off the paper on #3....all very creative. Joan

love them all but especially card number 1. I just read about this paper yesterday and can't wait to get my fingers on some! Andrea

I have to say I like the first one the best. It really does justice to the paper, the embossing bringing out the core.

Veronica said...

I love all of your cards but the first card with the pretty blue bird is my favorite!

Patti said...

I love the second one best. THe colours appeal to me and having two young boys in the house the theme is 'right on'.
