We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we really love feedback from our blog viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!

Since this is a circular hop, it doesn't matter where you pop in, so if you came here from Michelle's blog, that's great!

Today I'm sharing a couple of card duos.

This first pair uses the same layout - just in a different orientation.

And this second pair is the same layout, just a different sentiment on each of the cards to make them different.

Can I just say how much I LOVE the Thin Cuts Bundle for the Hello Lovely Card Making Stamp set? No fussy cutting that gorgeous floral stamp set. Yippee! Just die cut the image first, stamp away and off you go.

Did you notice the wee bit of shimmer on the cards? I know it's kind of hard to see but the grey roses and sprigs have actually been coated with the clear shimmer brush. I think they needed that little bit of shine to make them pop.

And now off you go to the next stop on the hop at Emily's Scrap Room! Enjoy!
