Get Creative #18 - Must use Flowers

Happy Monday...hoe you had a fabulous and fun weekend. I have one card to share today for the new challenge at Get Creative, the theme is must use flowers and the design team is using digital images from our sponsor The Stampers Boutique. There are some fun posies on the little bug but I thought adding a yellow one on the outside of my shaker would pull in the yellow seed beads (they are so much fun to play with). I hope you will fine the time to play along with us...always love seeing your wonderful creations.

I have more new followers to welcome...I am just over the moon excited to share my 4 newest followers with you. Donna K from @Studio 307, Fit Kitty, Kimberly Fordyce and D-
I could not find blogs for the last 3 ladies, so please send me your links and I will update this. Thank you so much for being my newest followers, I am so honored!

I did find a bit of time last week to make a new blouse...I love the orange fabric and it was pretty quick to make too.

  1. Love your fun shaker card and your blouse is AWESOME. I wish I could sew!

  2. What a fun & happy shaker card with this cute little flower bug. Love the circle shape and those vibrant polka dots. Just the right card to brighten a summer's day. Tucking the extra posy at the circle edge was a cute design touch too. Loved your lovely orange blouse. How pretty it looks with the black slax, and would be great with white as well. You're so talented!!! TFS & have a great week.

  3. Your card is just so sweet and cute. Love it. And what a seamstress you are. From one who does not sew, I am amazed.

  4. What a cute and fun shaker, Kim ... sweet little bug ... and I love that colourful dotty DP! Gorgeous blouse ... it's so stylish ... and you're so talented! Hugs & Bisous, Anita :)

  5. This is an adorable shaker card Kim, love it! And your blouse, wowza, you did an amazing job. Looks great on you!!

  6. Great card, great blouse - a woman of many talents! I love your shaker card, in all those bright colors and that adorable little Bug. And your blouse looks fantastic. Beautiful work! ;-)

  7. Kim, your card is absolutely adorable! And your blouse is are so talented! Thanks for sharing!!

  8. We all love a sweet lady named Kim
    Who could cut, stitch, sew, stamp and pin

    She could whip up a blouse in under an hour
    Bake dozens of cupcakes to take to a shower

    Or hem a gown for a sweet bride-to-be
    With stitches so small, we'd all struggle to see

    Or craft up a card so totally cool
    With Mickey & Minnie, yep they rule

    A smile so sweet, a soul so kind
    A better stamper would be hard to find!

    ....awesome card.....awesome blouse! You're soooooo amazing!

  9. I should take a sewing class with you! So impressed! And a fabulous card - so much fun, those little seed beads and the matching dotted paper!

  10. Can I PLEASE just copy Geri on her amazingly sweet and adorably perfect poem about you??? You have created such beauty, first in the card with the dots, beads and flower!! Secondly, that blouse looks so perfect and wonderful and stunning on you!! You really are a TRUE DELIGHT!!!

  11. Your new top is the star of the show, Kim!! And that's not easy to do because your love bug all wrapped up inside a shaker card with a backsplash of polkie dots is DIVINE!! Hugs, Darnell

  12. WOW!! I LOVE this fun shaker. Did you glue your beads like that or was that just the way it happened when you photographed it? I LOVE that blouse. I am so jealous. I really want to be able to sew!!

  13. Wow to your adorable car and those fabulous little beads. They make an incredible shaker element, and I love the repetition of circles from your border to your shaker beads. I love love love your blouse too. You are so amazingly talented--If I could sew a blouse like that, I would make 10 of them, and never go clothes shopping ever again. Can you please bring your sewing machine over to my house???

  14. This is so cute and love those little beads. Must get some of those but can imagine I will be losing them all over the place. And your blouse looks like it was bought from a store, its impeccable!! Beautiful colour too. So wish I could sew. I took Home Ec. at school but got an E in sewing as I constantly jammed the sewing machine. Just not mean't to be, so can really appreciate your skill!

  15. So cute! Love that you colored just the ribbon and love the beads in the shaker. Great blouse, fantastic cut!

  16. Oh what an adorable card, Kim, & your blouse is gorgeous! You are just so talented, my friend!

  17. Oh my...I'm just going to echo what everyone else has said (especially Geri, our resident poet!) on how delightful your card is and how beautiful your blouse! I can't sew a stitch (well...cross-stitch I can do, but you know what I mean....) so your skills have me incredibly awed!
