hb2u three-fer (SSS)

Three cards to share today (belonging to the species "publication rejects") which are totally fitting for the birthday celebration going on over at Simon Says Stamp.  Make a bday card to celebrate Simon's 4th and earn a chance at a great giveaway package.

Here are my entries.

I've always been big on themes.  Bet you've noticed the "hb2u" theme I had goin'.  All fun to make. All not picked up.  (But they had a cousin who did get picked up so the family's happy ;))  Some bokeh generational stamping with sequins, some bokeh with watercolor and acetate and some Dylusions spray inks over heat embossing.

Thanks for looking and hb2u Simon.

Did you hear that? That was my jaw hitting the floor. The first thought I had was "No, no, no, no, no! Cards this awesome should be accepted!" But, I'm glad we get to see them on the blog. I'm also glad that the cousin was accepted (yippee!).

You make such fab and funky and awesome cards, Maria! Some publication has some ignorant non-artistic and conservative card pickers on their staff! I'm just sayin'.

JJ Bolton said...

Wow, just wow! The bold designs and hot colors, what's not to love? My fave is probably the last card. That sprayed design could NOT be more perfect. And the recycled material is just classic Maria:)
