He Made This Day Just for You

Have you ever made a card that you absolutely love and don't want to part with??? I've made cards before but this one I think is my favorite!!:



RECIPE and SUPPLIES:
  • size A2 card with scraps for the background 
  • image was colored using Spectrum Noir Markers, Prisma Colored Pencils and gel pen accents
  • flower is a button from stash
  • plaid ribbon wrapped around background and tied in a bow
  • sentiment is from Create with TLC  die cut using Darice Embossing Die Cut and chalked around the edges



I was asked by a friend to make a card for a special lady at her church for her upcoming birthday thus it was given away and not kept but I do intend making this another time!!

I appreciate and love reading your comments - and hoping you leave me some bloggie love.  


Much love, hugs, and friendship

Oh No Not Another Learning Experience with a New Challenge at Scrap N Dipity

I'm one of the newest designers for Scrap N Dipity Challenge Blog where the challenge for this month is "Back to School" I'm sharing with you my card using Lil Chickie Reader:


. . . but first an interesting story - the above picture was taken with my cell phone showing my friend Kimberly as we create together via FaceTime. As you see, I used Darice Glossy Accents on Lil Chickie's glasses and went downstairs to make dinner while the Glossy Accents dried. In case you weren't aware, I have 4 cats, Patches is 16 years old, Chloe is 3 years old, Sadie is 2 years old, and Tinsel (aka Stinkers) is 10 months old and is very mischievous thus her nickname . . . well, when I came back upstairs to scan my card Tinsel was licking her paws and there was fur sticking to my card and viola with Tinsel helping to create this is version 2 of my card which makes the sentiment oh sew purrfect!!!!


RECIPE and SUPPLIES:
  • 5x7 inch card with adorable math paper for the background 
  • image was colored using Spectrum Noir and Whisper Stroke Markers with gel pen and Darice Glossy accents
  • apple ribbon from a swap
  • feather from my stash
  • sentiments are from Create with TLC cut using Darice Embossing Die Cut and chalked around the edges
