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!

Birthday Girl

I actually made this birthday card for a gal at work, but then changed my mind and gave her a different one, but I really like this one. Anya has freckles and a "flower soft" garland in her hair. She was colored with copics. I hope you like her.

Happy Birthday

I made this card for my granddaughter for her birthday. It's from "Inky Antics," and I think it's just adorable! I colored it in with copic markers and used festive papers. The icing on the cake and the letters in Happy Birthday are colored in with a spica pen in clear glitter. There's even a little froggy!

Let's Celebrate!

I made this card for a "raining card." It's Edwin with champagne and glasses ready to celebrate New Year's Eve!

The black background paper has a sparkle design. I used copic markers to color in Edwin, framed him in red, with red ribbon embellishment. Stamped "Celebrate", cut out with a circle punch, and then framed that in red scallop.

Hope you like him.

So Cute!

I fell just before Christmas and broke my foot and fractured my wrist and was unable to craft for a while. Well, I'm back and having fun!

I made this adorable card with one of the stamps my daughter gave me for Christmas. It's a "Gingersnap" stamp from the "Snow Bunny" collection. I think she's absolutely adorable! I used Copic markers to color her.

Hope you like her!
