You Made It Monday Vol. 10

Well, it's our last You Made It Monday post for January and I know some of you have had quite a doozy of a month.  Blizzards and cold weather with warm spells in between making us all long for spring, have been toying with our emotions.  So for the last post of the month, I thought I'd share a couple cards that I spotted this week that will help warm your heart. 
This first little ray of sunshine comes from Aloha Renee, @aloha_renee.

This card is absolutely packed with Lil' Inker Designs fun.  The Cover Up Die: Pointelle looks absolutely amazing in this soft pink, especially shaped by a Stitched Mats: Rounded Rectangles.  Another Stitched Mats: Rounded Rectangles makes the perfect focal point for the card and the Quilted Flower Die Set looks so sweet holding down a corner of the panel.  Renee's choice of sentiment from Paint Your Canvas Stamps is the perfect way to finish this card.     

Next up is this sweet breath of spring from Jo Handy, @handymade.designs.

The Stitched Butterflies Die Set are inked up so perfectly.  They are just fluttering around the card and really make this card feel so happy and thoughtful.  I love the added sparkle of the gems.  Beautiful card, Jo, and thanks for sharing!

Mansi Sharma, @die_cuts_and_more created a gorgeous background that makes the Sketched Floral Stamps really pop.

What an amazingly fun background Mansi created and, boy, does it make those flowers pop.  I love how she created her sentiment by combining a sentiment from Sketched Floral Stamps and a cut using the Smile Word Die.  The best part, the glossiness of the "smile" and how it is echoed in the enamel dots.  Amazing!
This last card comes from Gaylynn@neatnook, and is super fun!

I love how Gaylynn's card shows off the versatility of the Vintage Ink Stamps.  That gold anchor embossed on the vellum Stitched Mats: Circles is such a great focal point to this card.  It's amazing how well it stands up to the fun background created using the On the Diagonal Die.  The choice of colored vellum for the banner and sentiment are just so fun with the sequins tying together all the gold elements.  Such fun!
