I love the idea of the sentiment being inside the card. Great colorways on both.

Small Talk Mama said...

I really like the simplicity of the love card. Yellow is just so fun.

Ava Oxley said...

Thanks for sharing your cards with us blog hoppers. The busy woman popped up on the die cut image really stands out. That's my fave.

Kathryn said...

Thanks for supporting OWH with this hop. Nice layout on the card with the lady; she really pops against those patterned papers. Thanks for sharing.

Nancy M said...

Good job! I like the zig-zag of the first, as it reminds me of the sound waves between the 2 cups. On the second one, the die cut shape really jumps out at me, in a good way. Thank you so much for your support of OWH!!

Lovely cards! Your tin can looks 3-D and the die cut and over the rectangles really showcase the lady and all her hats. Great coloring!

Stephanie said...

The simplicity of the yellow card is eye-catching and I love the use of the sentiment on the inside of the "hats" card.

You lady looks like she is in a cloud thinking about all the work she has yet to do. Great way to use your dies.

Like the way you framed the hats lady front and center. Nice cards!

Boy did your little gal just "jump off of the page"!!! You did a great job by having her layered on the nesties.

Hi Kerry! I'm loving the shape of that background behind the hat lady! What a great idea! Thanks for sharing your cute AI cards and for joining us for the hop! What a great stop. :)

Carol J said...

I like the phone card the best. It says it all. Clean and simple and yet so elegant and fun.

Elizabeth said...

Love both of your cards! I especially like the choice of color & placement of paper that complements the image of the 2nd card. TFS!

Debbie Caldwell said...

Love the way you displayed the hat lady...she is the focus for sure, and the coloring is great. The tin can phone card is so simple, but says volumes...both sets are so perfect for OWH...great cards for a great cause. Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful card designs. I am a CAS fan and so that really caught my eye! But the other one with the lady with all the hats is colored to perfection and is awesome as well. You created a great background for that lady image.

Donna F W said...

Pretty cards, love the colors.

Dixie Cochran said...

Kerry, these cards are terrific! You picked terrific patterned papers to showcase your images.

Kathy said...

Love the chevron pattern on the first card. Makes me think of static on the phone line. Very nice design and great papers used on your second card.

Paula S. said...

Nice CAS design with the cups and the way you've used the die cut behind your hat lady to frame her is just sensational! Thanks for supporting OWH.

Dotti's Hobbies said...

Thank you, Kerry, for joining in on the hop and supporting OWH with these great cards! I love the yellow background, making your phone love stand out. And the layout of your hat lady card is wonderful - she stands right out in front! Beautiful! ~Dotti H., OWH Board member

conil said...

Truly great use of the new stamps. Love both the colors and design.

This love card is so sweet and simple! Love the way you popped the hat lady!

pcrusberg said...

Super cards. I love that hat lady card layout.

Cynthia Rose said...

This is the first time I have seen the "telephone" used on a vertical card - you made it work. The cutting and papers on the hat lady are great.

Naomi said...

I really like your All Hats card - the matting and inking around the edges really set off the card.

Lee Mae said...

Love both of your cards! The love really shows up on your first card and the die cut behind the hat lady looks terrific. Great colors and papers on both! Thanks for supporting OWH!

SusanS said...

Wow ~ two very nice cards! I really like the 'pop' of color on the first card! Thank you for supporting OWH!!!

Karen Day said...

Lovely cards, Kerry! I love that one is very CAS, and the other has gorgeous shapes & patterns :o)

Pat Kinkaid said...

Great job on both cards!

hana jones said...

love the shapes behind the lady with the hats ...i like that instead of on front you put the sentiment in the card rather than on the front !! great job on both ...

WhoMom said...

Love your second card!!! The background really makes the card stand out.

Thank you for sharing.

Nice coloring and both cards have good layouts.

Dave said...

Cathy Brandt here. Computer is calling me Dave. That's my DH. Trying to send everyone a comment to get a chance to win. Also want to tell you all that it's hard to choose a favorite card. You all have great stuff. Thanks for the brilliant ideas.

Barb said...

love the cards-great colors

Joanie said...

Love the cut out that you did for the "hat" stamp. I will have to try that!

Fran Green said...

The elegance of the papers used for the background of your Hats card seems to further emphasize the many roles of a military spouse. Dressing up for a military function one minute and plunging a toilet at home the next.

Kate Swanson said...

Amazing job, Kerry! Love the simplicity of the Sending Love card! Plus your Every Hats card features that tall stamp perfectly! Thanks for joining in the hop! - Kate at Art Impressions

Diane S said...

Dotti Snell said...

Great cards for a great blog hop.

Lisa Brooks said...

Kerry, love both of your cards. Loved the yellow. Both sets just keep getting cuter and cuter.

Billie A said...

Great cards and like the paper with the can phones looks like sound waves. Also the fussy cutting of the second image is very nicely and the layout is great.

Rufus said...

The die cutting and layering of your second card really makes the hat lady pop right off the paper.
Thanks for sharing them and for all the support for our Heroes and OWH!

Angelica Chambers said...

All the matted layers on ur second card are awesome. Like little colorful windows... Even the inside is lovely! Thanks

Michele from MS said...

The yellow paper is so cheerful and I love how the little lady is bigger than the die cut. The layers behind her are so pretty! Great job ~ TFS

I love both cards! Great paper choices and I love how you "popped up" the hat lady!

Leslie Frederick said...

You have some definite skillz child. I cannot imagine fussy cutting the lady and you did an amazing job. I love the phone card as well, because making simple cards beautiful is an art in itself...and that is a beautiful card. Thank you for all you do for OWH.
