Swirling By to Say Hi

Kim is sharing this card on the Paper Smooches blog today. It features a tornado, wind and sentiment from Eco Friendly which will be available for purchase starting tomorrow! The other circles are bubbles (as dirt) from Surf & Turf and Swanky Snowdudes. I know that none of you would want to see a tornado swirling by to say hi. Well, maybe if it's this cute and small that would be okay, right? LOL Kim's incredible sense of humour shines through in unique images like this one. She's so innovative and you are going to love all that Eco Friendly has to offer. It's such a versatile year-round set! The Licorice and Tangerine baker's twine featured on my card in a Carrick Bend boating knot are also available from Paper Smooches.

As you know, Kim is at CHA and if you haven't already 'liked' Paper Crafts magazine on Facebook, you are missing out on sneak peeks of the newest stamps from Paper Smooches! You are going to love them. Just warn your wallet... and/or your husband. ;)

This is cute, Em! Can't wait to see the rest of this set- looks interesting! You are making me want to break out my "Knots for Dummies" book :)

Fantastic! You're right, I certainly wouldn't want to see a real tornado but this super cute one on a card would be wonderful. I love your color choices.

Annette said...

how cute...I love it... what a fun way to do scallops and the twine. Great card Emily...

You are so right, Emily! A tornado this cute is hard to resist :)

Love these new images :)

This is super cute!

Lana said...

Such a cutie Emily.....I love the clean fresh look of your creations xxx

Jocelyn Olson said...

That is too funny! At first, I thought the tornado was a carrot, although you typically don't see blue carrots and they aren't typically swirling (except maybe in a Cuisinart)--LOL! Love the colors you used. Yes, I saw the PS bg stamps--very cool!

Lindsey said...

I too was thinking you could always use that tornado for a carrot (or a parsnip -- although a parsnip card might have a limited market)! There's so many sweet little touches to this card -- the little diamonds behind the scallops, the coloured hi. So cute! Maybe not one to send to Meg, though... :P

Love the colour combo, the cutie pie little dust storm and that gorgeous border. And since you're becoming such a knot tying pro it's time to hop on a yacht and sail over to visit me! :)

Emily Keaton said...

So adorable! This new set looks really fun. :)

Great swirling design, Emily! Love the additions of the bubbles besides the tornado!

Angela said...

Love Linds's comment ;) (and I'd be happy to have a parsnip card, thank you very much!). This is really the cutest tornado I've ever seen -- and I really, really love those colors - yes, me! loving coral! Weird.

Eeek, love the tornado Emily! You are darn lucky to be on those DT. You are very talented and think outside th ebox. So wish I could do that too! Love love your creations.

No husband warning - it's easier to ask forgiveness than ask permission! lol
This is definitely the only cute tornado I've ever seen - including the one from Elmo's World - and the sentiment is too fun :) Love that funky knot!

Jenny said...
