I visited and lunched with my son for a short time today, but decided to play in my craft room as I waited for him to call and say he got home safely. While waiting I created these two cards, to keep me busy!
Two cards for today. The first one is for F4A420 (Free for All) on Split Coast Stampers. A Barbie inspired card- I know this very well as I got my first doll, when Barbie was introduced. Yes I had tons of clothes, teeny high heel shoes, Ken, Midge, the house and car-for my Barbie obsession and needless to say that doll had gobs of stuff back then. For this card, I used Melanie Muenchinger's Just So Sporty and Sporty Accessories stamps from Gina K. Designs. I fussy cut all the images, and colored with Copic markers, and popped them up on a polka dot scrap.
This card was made with a retired stamp from 2011, but it fit the request to use a Lion or Lamb heralding Spring, for CAS472 (Clean and Simple). Yes, I am now wishing for Spring to arrive, seems like a great idea! This would make a nice masculine card!
Thank you for visiting and I hope you leave a comment for me.
Wow- This week sure went by fast but I did find the urge to create a card this afternoon. I used the Painted Autumn set from Gina K. Designs and many things that were still on my work table. We set the clocks back tomorrow, but it still seems Fall to me.
A beautiful day today, and almost 50 degrees puts me in a spirit for a bunny and a froggie. I colored them with Copics and then mounted them on Wobbles in the grass, after I fussy cut them. A light blue sky with die cut clouds sure takes my mind to warmer weather that is on its way!
This card came together quickly and is one that is going to my friend in Florida. I haven't seen her in many years. I hope she will get "happy" receiving this card! Quite a bit of fussy cutting to make this card, but I find that so relaxing.
The flamingo is from an old stamp set, called from Gina K. Designs- Theresa Momber's Aloha from 2010, The sentiment is a ThermoWeb one, called Gracielle. I just printed it out and placed it on a card tag, without foiling.
The MOD Squad Challenge is to have a bunny or chick as the focal point. Well, I have 2 of each to satisfy my focal point! Waiting for Spring, Easter and warmer weather inspired my design for this card.
Are you as happy to see the end of this month? Spring will be here before we know it---fingers crossed! I have quite a few friends that this card would be welcomed to receive this, by any of them. So many incidents happened this year!
Today would have been a 70th Anniversary for my parents, but sadly they divorced after 30 years. My Dad passed quite some time ago but Mom, - lives with Alzheimer's in a Senior Facility, at 87 years old.
I created this card as a Happy Party card, just to make us all smile. No stamping involved- just die cut bows from lots of colored card.
I just love this tree stamp from Gina K. Designs. I found it works perfectly for Sympathy cards, and I have learned to have them ready- for when I least expect to send one. It makes things so much easier than having to make one-when sadness is in your heart. Keep a couple handy to send for those last minutes Sympathy wishes. This seems to work as a very simple design, that expresses my feelings rather well.
