Madras Cards

I went to begin typing this post and found that Blogger had locked my blog because it's "spam-prevention robots" thought it was a spam blog! Holy cow! Not only would I NOT know how to do that but I don't post often enough to be spam! LOL! So this post may be a couple of days late posting while they have a real person review my blog and make sure I'm not spamin'. At least I can write this now and post it when I get unlocked. *silver lining*

Now on to my cards! I went to bed last light thinking about what project I should do using my Baroque Motifs that I really, really want to use (but I'm having a block perhaps feeling intimidated by this set), but I did some up with this layout. It is basically the same card just a different background stamp and Old Olive on one and More Mustard on the other.

This version uses the Old Olive c/s as the base with the Old Olive brads, and Floral as the b/g of course. I am planning on sending this to my sister who is separated from her DH and kids while she serves her year in S. Korea. Thankfully, one of my brothers is also stationed there and they are literally minutes from each other. She is new to the Army and he has been in nearly 20 years and this is his 3rd (I'm pretty sure) tour to Korea. She fixes communication equipment in helicopters and he flies 'em! So it is really great that they are stationed together.

This version uses More Mustard c/s and brads and uses Fine Lace b/g. I'll put this in my "to be used" box for when I need something right now. :D

Now I need to get busy and figure out a project using that Baroque Motifs for my class on the 26th! *eyeroll*
