I love the "girlfriends" stamps at "Art Impressions"!! 
I created this one as a "thank you" for the gal who did my physical therapy.
I used Copics to color the gals in after stamping with Mementos Ink.
Another one of my favorites is "Konichiwa" from "Hero Arts"
I think she's just adorable!
This card also uses Copic pens.  The flowers are embellished with Stickles, including the one in her hair.  The papers are from the Konichiwa paper pack. 

Hope you like them!  Thanks for looking.
Keep on crafting!  My latest creation.

I created this card with a really cute stamp from "My Favorite Things"!  "So Beary Cute"
I used various patterned papers anda paper doily from Stampin' Up.  I colored the stamp in using Mementos ink and Copic pens, added a cute little tag from "Bo-Bunny" and a few matching rhinestones.  Hope you like her.

A Star is Born!

Oh, I just can't stand it -- I have to show you photos of my precious granddaughter, Elizabeth, in her very first dance recital!!!! She did so well - not a bit shy and even blew kisses to the audience!

Seas The Day!

My daughter gave me these adorable stamps for Mother's Day! I just love these! I made this card for a co-worker for her birthday. She has two adorable blonde children - a boy and a girl, and next week she heads to the beach for a must-deserved vacation!

I staggered the kids a bit to make the girl look older and taller and "planted" them in the sand. I used my Copic markers to color them. I used a stippling brush to put a glow behind the sun, and put a golden rhinestone for the center. I lined the shells with a glitter pen to give it more pop and framed the picture with blue and yellow papers. I hope she likes it!

Here Comes the Rain

I used this little Tilda for one of my "raining" cards. I thought it was perfect for April rain. I layered Tilda on patterned paper and added the little "pull-along duckie" and added the flower with the rhinestone center. I used Copic markers to color her. I think the circles on the patterned paper resemble rain drops.

This Tilda was actually an image that someone sent me and I really like it!

Happy Mother's Day!

I want to wish all you mothers out there a very happy Mother's Day! I loved every minute of raising my kids and now that they're grown, I miss it! All you mother's of little children, treasure this time with your children -- they grow much too fast!
I made this card for a very special grandmother and greatgrandmother! (not mine) She's a remarkable woman with more stamina than women half her age, and a sunny disposition and ready smile!
This is my very first attempt at using flower soft, and I'm happy with how it turned out. I tried to get a "Victorian" look for this card, so I used the flowered background, which I scalloped, added a layer of pink textured paper, which I also scalloped, added the white lace ribbon for more "Victorian" charm, and embellished it with three pink rhinesones for a little "bling." I hope she likes it!

God Bless Mothers!

I made this card for my Godmother. She's a very special aunt to me. When I was little, she lived on the next street and we were together all the time. She's my mother's sister and they were very close. She has two sons of her own, but not a daughter. Now she has 2 beautiful granddaughters!

I recently had the opportunity to see her, which I hadn't in a long time since she lives several hours away. She's still the happy, smiling lady I remember. Happy Mother's day Aunt Agnes! Hope you like the card!
