Precocious Cards

Yea!  My first couple projects for Precocious Paper!!  Every Friday Tessa will be showcasing a few projects from a couple of the DT members.  Be sure to pop over there to check out what Suzy made, also!!

I knew the second I saw these Ecru Botanical Fabric and Felt Flowers in the Precocious Paper Etsy store that I would be pairing them with this yummy super wide striped ribbon.  (I know I am soon going to be kicking myself for not buying more than one roll of this ribbon.  It was a Michael's Halloween edition and they sold out of it fast.) 

A simple card but the flower and ribbon are so larger-than-life that they carry it off easily. 

I also went simple with this birthday card:

And, trust me, the light brown in the animal print ribbon and that in the flower are much closer in color than they look in this picture. 

This is another Fabric and Felt Flower from the Fruit Punch Bouquet.  This particular one is made with Amy Butler fabric.   These Fabric and Felt Flowers are just amazing.  HUGE.  (To give you an idea, the top card is 3x6, the bottom is 4-1/4 x 5.)  And with so many layers - they're just lush.  I'm going to have a really hard time giving away this card but it's going to a good home.  ;o)

This weekend only (thru 10/10/10) you can get 25% off the products featured on the Precocious Paper blog (including these two flower collections I've shown you) in the Precocious Paper Etsy store!!!!  Check out the blog for details.   Awesome!!!!

I can't believe we're looking at a Saturday without any birthday parties, events, or anything formal scheduled.  I'm so excited!!  I feel like it's been forever since we've had one of those beauties. 

Hopefully The Girl is feeling better tomorrow.  She was feverish all day, sleeping quite a bit of it.  Here's a piece of advice, something we all learned today.  If you feel like you need to throw up, don't squash both your hands up to your face like you're going to sneeze.  I'll leave that up to your imagination.  LOL.
