Baby Card

Next to Christmas cards, baby cards are my favorite to make.  I love this sweet image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  This card is for one of my daycare families who is expecting their second child any day now.  I can hardly wait to meet the new little one.

Birthday Card


I have been playing around with my distress reinkers to paint my stamped images. I have had my reinders for a very long time and I have been wanted to learn how to paint with them. I have watched several youtube videos and practiced lots. I still have lots to learn and need to spend much more time practicing. This is the first completed project I have featured on my blog but it's not my first painted image.  That one is a DT project and will be featured later.

This card is for my niece who will be celebrating her birthday in August.

Thank You Cards

I ran out of thank you cards so I made up a set of this simple design. My husband had so many thank you notes to send due to his illness that even with this set, I only have 1 thank you card left.  I guess I will be making more soon

Twinkle Little Star

I just love this sweet image from Mo's Digital Pencil.  This little angel polishing stars is super adorable.  I have chosen to use it for a Christmas card but I can see it for so many other occassions such as a new baby, birthday make a wish card, etc.
After coloring with copics, I painted the star with extreme glitter paint for some twinkly shine.  I also added some stickles to the wings and die cut starts.

White and Red Christmas Card

The challenge this month at Simply Magnolia is to create a project using White + One Other Color.
I used two magnolia stamps to create this card.  I just adore this Tilda and her lollipop paired up withe the candy cane stamp.  I went for a CAS design and added some extra touches with stitching and extreme glitter paint.

Christmas in July

This image from Bugaboo Stamps just makes me chuckle.  Wouldn't we all love to buy our own Christmas gifts?  I would have fun shopping in the craft stores for myself.  I created a spot to tuck a gift card so the recipient can do a little of their own Christmas shopping.
This is my DT card for Aud Sentiments.  The challenge is Christmas in July.

Anniversary Card

I just purchased the Spring Garden die from Die'sire.  Oh my goodness is is gorgeous.  Not only does it die cut but it embosses too so the flowers look stunning.  I just love the way this card turned out. It is so elegant yet was so simple to make.

2nd Birthday Card

Happy Birthday, Brody!  
I made this card for one of my daycare boys who turned two last week.
I kept the card simple but did have fun with the papers and image. I just love this little guy blowing bubbles. What kid doesn't like blowing and chasing bubbles?
