StampTV CSS Alumni Blog Hop~Some of our Favorite Things

Hello it is time for another StampTV CSS Alumni blog hop.  You should have arrived here from the very talented and beautiful Betty's blog.  If not you can start the hop at StampTV.   For today's hop the CSS group is sharing some of their favorite things.  

One of my most favorite things to do is color flowers and Melanie Muenchinger's flowers are beautiful and I so enjoy coloring them.  So I knew right away that I had to use this rose from Stately Flowers 6.

For my second card I love the look of CAS cards, but struggle with them.  It is all the "white space" that makes me feel like I have to keep adding more to the card.  So being as I love the look of CAS I decided to make one.  It was much easier than the last time I made one.  Maybe it was due to having this wonderful Balanced Diva set.

Your next stop is the fabulous and incredibility creative Cheri.  

I will be entering my cards into the following challenges
