Valentine's day will be here before we know it

I used the Hedgehug set by Lawn Fawn for this card. I also used Tim Holtz inks to watercolor the sky and I used my Fuse tool for first time.

Christmas card 2015: Forgot to post

Here's the finished card. I didn't add any ribbon or jewels. Made a bunch and had to mail most, so I didn't want to make them too bulky.

It's been a while

Wow, well it's been quite a while since I even tried to make a card. Now I finally feel like I can mess around a bit with my paper, dies and stamps! Being a new mom sure is fun but trying to get into a routine and fit in card making, that's been a slight challenge.

Happy Birthday

A fun card for my mom's birthday! I used water and glitter, how fun! I need more practice but this didn't turn out too bad.

Mimi the Chick

Love, love this cute girl. I had so much fun paper piercing her outfit together.  I also used Glossy Accents on her glasses.  I am not done with the front but wanted to post what I have so far. Enjoy!

My first digi

I love Sassy Cheryl images.  They are so fun to bring to life. I colored this while on the road for vacation,  it is a bit rough looking but it was fun to take this carefree duo on the road.

I wanted to make something cute and fun for Valentine's Day. I hadn't used Mod Podge in a while and had some cute paper I was wanting to use on a project.  Here's how it turned out!

Up until 4 A.M. making these cards. It was fun and nice and quiet. I made a bunch, so I will have them ready when needed. They are simple and kind of plain but sometimes that is better than having too much.

Penny Black: Sweet and Cute

Penny Black Sweet and Cute stamp set
This is a card I made for my neice. I used the Penny Black Sweet and Cute stamp set. I used my Prisma pencils: beige, light umber, and dark umber to color the hedgehog. Pumpkin orange for the frosting and sadly I didn't write down what blue, green, or yellow I used. The green may have been spring green?

My photos!!!! Where did they go?

It seems I've somehow lost a bunch of the photos of my cards. I don't know what happened!  I am trying to find copies on my cameras and any of my Facebook posts.  Eeek.... I am sad!

Box Card My first attempt on my own

Took a class at a local store and wanted to try making the box on my own.  Thankfully our awesome instructor gave us a template and the directions. 

Whipper Snapper: Poolside Chicken

I had to  repost this due to losing the pictures.  So I had these colors picked out and the image but I was so excited to color her!  I am loving the colors and she is just a fun image to color.  I really liked how she turned out.  I didn't make the card too fancy no ribbon and no foam tape, this was hard for me not to use either one.  Other than a strip of the checkered paper on the inside along the bottom, the inside is blank.  Hope you enjoy this one!

Relax to the Max

What a fun stamp! I am still deciding if I am going to add something to this card on the bottom left area, I may take the twine off... I love Max sleeping in his chair.  I added the bone in his paw too.  Man, he loves that bone!
I use prima color pencils.

Chair: violet 932

I used my gold pencil on the fire hydrant.

Happy Father's Day

I was a little fearful of making this card.   No flowers or frills.... just the Duke.  I am happy with the way it turned out.

Mother's Day 2014 Box card

Made this for my mom for Mother's Day. She used to make me the most beautiful dresses when I was a little girl.  When I was married she made my wedding dress. 
My mom is so talented and I love so much!

Mother's Day

Loved making cards for my mom.  I love to see the smile and show her how much we love and appreciate her.

I dig you

This idea came from a card I saw at a local store which was created by The Papercutters.  I love the dog stamp from Paper Smooches. I used glossy accents on the dogs eyes.
