Happy Anniversary

 Art Impressions Spinner Winner

Hi everyone, it's been a crazy couple of weeks, 
but I'm back with my all time favorite card to date.

This card is not only an anniversary card I made for my in laws,
but it is also the stamp and die set I won from an Art Impressions contest I had entered on Facebook a while back.
It is a 5.5" square card base, with a piece of silver reflective card stock in the background, and then I added a paper doily which I painted black and adhered over the reflective piece as though it were some lace curtains.
The sentiment says 'Love is all around' and my in laws are still more than happy to have it on display.
See you all again next week, Lord willing,
where I will have some more goodies to share with you.
Love always

Black, White ...... and Gold


Hi all, 
today's card was made for one of my Husbands cousins and she just turned thirty.
We don't really see her a lot, and am really not sure what her likes or dislikes are, apart from her being a free spirit.
In saying that, I thought about what type of card she would like, and flowers or cutesy just did not seem to cut the mustard, so I went with an 'In your face' kind of card with a gold glitter card stock for the 30 inlay so it would pop. In hie sight, if I was to make the card again, I would have used a larger number die to make it pop even more.

Oh the joys of card making and learning as you go.
See you all next week, for one of my most favorite cards I have made so far.
Love always

Ice scream you scream ........ for ICE CREAM

Hello Ice cream lovers, and everyone else too.
Today's card reminds me of an old Ice cream shoppe, well that was the plan anyway.

This card was made for a very sweet young lady, who loves going to the Ice cream shop with my mother in law, (her Gran Ruth) when she comes down to visit her.
The only stamp used on this card is the Birthday sentiment, and that was done with Versamark and heat embossing it with white embossing powder by Ranger. The rest is hand drawn and colored using coloring pencils.

I do hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it. If you have any questions or comments, don't forget you can leave them for me and I will be more than happy to get back to you.

Until next time,
Love always
