Angel Whispers

My neighbor's daughter's birthday party was on Saturday. I had already made her son a card last month which I'll post another day. I just wanted to share this card. This is Angel Whispers from Wags and Whiskers. You can read about these awesome stamps at Lacey's blog.

The image was embossed on watercolor paper (thanks Lacey) and painted with Twinkling H2Os. The card base is SU Pretty in Pink. The DP is DCWV Animal Stack. I really like this stack of papers. Some of it has cute pages with animals but there are some really neat glittery pages. The ribbon and brad is from my stash. The spacer and charm are from Stamp and Create. The flowers are Got Flowers? from Paper Wishes. I also added Stickles to the angel wings and the butterfly wings.
My neighbor's daughter said it was better than her brother's card. She's cute!

Thanks for looking!

High Hopes Challenge #64

I can play on a High Hopes Challenge! The challenge is to add texture and make it touchy feely.

This is Willy One Eye. I made about 80 of this guy for my boys' Valentine cards. I made a few extra embossed on Whisper White so I can make random cards. This one is in an envelope and will be sent to my friend on Monday. I thought it would give her a smile. Willy is so cute!

I guess the texture here would be the embossing, the ribbon and the buttons. Plus I roughed up the edges of the image. Willy was colored with Twinkling H2Os. He is backed on SU Certainly Celery and the base is PTI Plum Pudding. The can't remember were the ribbon, buttons and DP are from. Just random items I've had for years and I am now actually using.

Thanks for looking!

Valentine Cards

I know that Valentine's Day is over...but seeeing as this is my first "picture" post - I am testing it out on some projects that I recently finished. This is Willie One Eye from High Hopes purchased from Stamp and Create. I made these as Valentine cards for my boys for their class and teachers. I love these new High Hopes stamps from Dustin. I have two boys so these "manly" stamps are right up my alley.

On the back I just printed "Happy Valentine's Day! From: (Insert Name)". I embossed Willie on SU Baja Breeze and Certainly Celery. The eye, tongue and spots were colored with Twinkling H2O's.

Thanks for looking!

My First Post!

Okay - this is my very first post/blog. This will definitely be a learning experience for me. Patience is a virtue! Amen!
This definitely won't be an everyday blog. I don't have the attention span, the time, or the cleverness to make this an everyday thing.
Thank you to those who happen upon this little experiment and take the time to read and look. I am definitely new to the blogging and card making world. I will give credit where I can to those who inspire me.
