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!
