Some Cheerful Yellow Cards

This week at the MFPSpeedyTV Inspiration Challenge, Shirley found some lovely coats to inspire us:

Both my cards were inspired by the color and design of the yellow coat and those little yellow flowers in the background. I love the first two coats and if I could look as good as those girls in the coats, I would buy them and wear them every day - even in the summer! The stamp sets I used for these cards are Lots of Words (the first card) and Natures Brushstrokes and Columns and Topiaries (for the second card). I used the netting from my holiday turkey on the first card, and on the second I was also inspired by THIS wonderful card by Jo on Splitcoast Stampers - I love how she nested her Nesties and I had to try it!

Come join us in the challenge - you don't have to use a Mark's Finest Papers image (of course we would love it if you did), we are a no pressure challenge, you can enter several times, and the prize is super cute!



  1. Holiday turkey netting? I get the most marvelous ideas from you, thank you. I adore both cards. Very nice look to the second card with the different dies put together. both stamps are lovely.and your button and gems are sweet subtle additions. Wow it has been about 45 years since I could fit into one of those coats, but I agree, I would were them constantly if I could look that good.
    Happy New Year, Nancy.

  2. Awesome creations. Loving the cheerful yellow and the black netting on the first.

  6. Both cards are lovely! Love the touch of netting and the way you've framed the second one! Might have CAS it!

  7. Nancy, both of the cards are beautiful. You really aced this challenge. I love that you used the netting from the turkey, I like recycling those things. I like the unusual frame, it looks great and the brushstrokes flower is perfect with it. If you can figure out how to make us look good in those coats, let me know. I loved the first two, also. Hugs.
