The fun of this skip it to see how everyone used the same kit in different ways! Everyone got the same package in the mail with all the goodies to play with for this blog skip!! Two stamped images and three patterned papers, how fun!

I watercolored the images with SU! inks and an aqua painter. I found a video the other day which took the NEW Cupcake Punch from SU! and used it to make some clouds, I totally think that is the cutest! So I made some for the yellow flowered card. I also added dots to the image with a SU! white gel pen and made it an easel card too! You know I love easel cards, LOL!!!

The other card I used the SU! Framed Oval Die and cut it out twice....I used last years DSP and ran the scalloped frame part through my crimping tool, then kinda pleated it around the oval. I then took some ribbon and pleated it around the DSP as well. The sentiment is from last years Sale-a-bration stamp set and the crazy shape was achieved by punching it out twice with the curly label punch!On both cards I punched out different sizes of flowers with the green patterned paper they gave us to use and nested them together.
Well, I hope you have a great time checking out all the lovely inspiration from the skip!
Now, your next stop on the skip will be the very creative Paula. She is also a sweet friend whom I've gotten to know through my SU! stamp club....so go check out her beautiful card and leave her some love!!! Her blog is always full of inspiration to motive you!
