Mother's Day Pansies

I didn't get a chance to share with you the Mother's Day card I made for my mom. All I can say is this was a fun and easy card to make. I've been seeing a lot of these pansies, so I had to try it too. I love the way the card turned out and so did my mother. She even took it to work to show her co-workers! I hope you like it too.

Totally Tool



Hi there! I'm back with another card share. This card was made a few months back for a challenge I participated in. The challenge was to create a masculine card. I participated because I needed to step out of my box and do something different. I knew I wanted to use SU's Totally Tool stamp set, but I was at a total loss for a cool design. Anyway, I remember flipping through a magazine while waiting in line at Michael's and found this layout. The pegboard idea came from a card found on Splitcoast Stampers. I added a few brads, painted the the tools with silver metallic ink using a watercolor brush, added a sentiment and a button and Wallah, we have a masculine card! Let me know what you think.

Bath Time

HI Bloggers! I'm back with another card share. This card was made for a challenge swap. This challenge was easy because it was an "anything goes" challenge. We can make a card with any items either SU or non SU. I chose non SU. I had this stamp along with a card I saw with this image and I CASEd the layout! This card was fun to make and I totally loved the outcome. I found the pattern paper in my stash and paired it up with SU's Kiwi Kiss CS (although retired, I just love the color). I used the swiss dots folder for this. The image was colored with Copic markers. Glitter was used for the bubbles, the duck is on a pop dot so that it is sitting on the bubbles. I also made a paper flower to add to the card as a final touch. These are soooo easy and fun to make. I hope you like it!

Long Overdue Post - Digital Images

Hi there! Its been a while since my last post. I really didn't mean for it to be this long since I last shared with you. I haven't been stamping much. Really I haven't been doing much besides working and taking care of family issues/drama! Ain't it funny that when you do not want to get involved in certain situations, you're pulled into it anyway? It just amazes me how much misery loves company.

Anyway, in my blog travels, I discovered digital images. These images are fun to play with. I really like the digital images, because if you're like me, once you pay for the image, it is readily available to download to your computer. And like stamps, you can use these images forever. The one advantage is the fact that you can size these images any way you like (you can't do that with rubber stamps)! Don't get me wrong, I still love my rubber!

This image is from The Greeting Farm. Her name is Dressy Ebony. I used Copic markers to color her.



The next two cards also use the image from The Greeting Farm. Her name is Charlotte. I just love her curly afro as well as her cute outfit. These were also colored with Copic markers.





Thanks for looking.
