JUGS #683 and the NEWEST from Dar and Diane!

 I knew just the card I wanted to make for Just us Girls when I saw the word: Hello!  A few months ago, I made THIS card, and you all liked it so much.  Today, I wanted to say HELLO and show an echo... hope I pulled it off!

I love the new HoneyBee Pinstripes and Polk Dots patterned paper.
Here is a little closeup of that wee little SSS sail boat...

... a bit of debossing in the background for interest, and a wave made from a quote die from EH!

My second card is for Dar and Diane of the Double D Challenge fame - they have ANOTHER place to play: Stencil Fun Challenge! This month they are looking for layering stencils.. I have few but this one from Altenew is among my favorites.

Isn't she loverly?  
Thanks, Double D's, for a great time to play with her again!
I love that there is a die to match!

Thanks to all of you for stopping by on a MONDAY!  But maybe Monday isn't your laundry day?

You are definitely on a roll Michele, I am so loving the "echo" hello card! You pulled off the echo perfectly. Love how you used a "speech bubble" for the "wave", such a unique and cute idea!!! Love the sailboat and love the big "hello" echo's! Great papers, great textures and a totally fabulous card! Your second card is just stunning! That rose is stenciled so beautifully in such beautiful colors. Love the little panel behind it as well as that "cheese cloth" looking paper or it is a stamp-at any rate, I love it! You are amazing as always! Hugs, Brenda

You had me with all of the sweet little polka dots! Cute card, Michele. So happy to see it in our gallery at JUGs! Every time I see three hellos, I want to throw in the fourth like the Three Stooges LOL! Your second card is gorgeous. Love that big bloom and the fancy little number you added to the background!

Lisa Petrella said...

Wonderful creations, Michele! I love your super fun echo card!!! Such a creative design/concept!!! And your flower card is gorgeous!!! Thanks for the heads-up about that stencil challenge---it's a new one to me :) Will check it out!

Vicki Dutcher said...

The Hellos look "wave" like! Very cool effect. Your layered stencil card is stunning! Thanks for playing along at JUGS :)

Cat Craig said...

Great card Michele, love the wave how clever to see a wave in that die. The bitty sailboat is a darling addition to your scene.

Leslie Miller said...

Your little sailboat goes on all kinds of adventures and now the sailor is calling "hello" as the boat bobs up and down and I can hear it just perfectly! I'm loving your loverly flower on the gauzy background, too. Such pretty colors!

Bobby said...

Great way to triple the hello, Michele. Love that DSP. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Us Girls.
I have that rose stencil and didn't know it had a die. I haven't used it in a while but brought it with me. Last time I made a card with it I used similar colors. It looks right at home one the lacy die and cheesecloth background.

Birgit said...

Gorgeous makes, Michele! Your echo card is super fun! But I am smitten with your second card. I can't get over how beautiful that Altenew rose is. I love the salmon color tones you used. Just stunning!!

Bonnie said...

You nailed the echo, Michele! I love the fading shades of gray and how you did the background! Your rose is GORGEOUS! Beautiful shades that blend into each other beautifully!

Well, a Triple Hello to you too my friend! And yes to matching dies everyday lol. LOVE your amazing inspiration!!

Jeanne said...

A double delight for sure, MIchele! Thanks for sharing your wonderful creativity!

Darlene said...

WOW! You go girl!!! Your Hello card is so creative and love the wave/sail boat on the bottom ... very clever!! And, of course that stenciled flower on your 2nd card is gorgeous! Love your overall design ... just fabulous!
Thanks so much for joining in the fun at our STENCIL FUN and DOUBLE D challenges! Good Luck and we hope you’ll come back often.

Both are as wonderful as can be. However, your creativity with the Hello card is off the charts. I am in agreement with other comments that the Hello script looks like waves themselves. Love the dotted theme throughout, too! Thanks for sharing your talents with us at Just Us Girls.

Love, love your echo hello card! Great idea doing it.

Lisa Schenck said...

This is incredible, I absolutely love it

Lisa Schenck said...

This is incredible, Michele, I absolutely love it! So stylish!

TK said...

Two great Hello cards, Michele! I love the echoing first card, and that adorable little boat!!! Then comes your gorgeous flower with that STUNNING & AMAZING lace die -- wow! Be still my heart! said...

The echo card is stunning and yes you pulled it off.I love the little sailboat and the patterned paper is so pretty.
The second card is glorious and I'm so happy that there are layering stencils these days because it helps people like me who can't colour to make something look professional. Yours is beautiful, especially against that gorgeous background.
I'm so glad I found your blog so much inspiration and your posts are always such a joy to read for me the written word is just as important as the card I like to get to know the person behind the creation.

Love your speech bubble wave hello - love the color scheme and that tiny boat. The second card is gorgeous. What a great idea to use that floral lace die in the background. I forgot I had that one. Have to get it out and brush it off.
