Pretty in Pink...

Birthdays are a special day and this card was made to make someone's birthday extra special this year.  This adorable Magnolia stamp is Dinner Tilda from the Yummy For Your Tummy collection and she is all dressed up and ready to go to a party.  She is colored using Copic Markers:  E000, E00, E11 & R20 for the skin, G20, G21 & G24 with R000, R81 & R83 for her outfit and for the hair used E25, E49, E53 & E59 and the shoes used C3, C5, C7 & C9.  The springlike theme of this card is highlighted with the adorable felt flowers, 3D butterflies and Pure Blossoms all in pink from Creative Charms.  I used MS punches to make the leaves and also for the border.

A Little Birdie told me...

The sun is shining today and I saw my first sign of Spring even though it doesn't officially start until the weekend!  Looking out the window of my workshop there was a robin sitting in the crab apple tree in my front yard.  Such a welcome sign!  Here is a little basket I made to welcome Spring decorated with the Sparkled Flowers and Sparkled Butterflies collection from Creative Charms.  The Dream Garden Dream Brads inside the basket must have attracted a visitor.  If you look closely you will see a little birdie peeking out of the basket guarding her egg!  Happy Spring!

Hello Friend!

I love the colors in this cardstock, so bright and refreshing.  This accordian fold card would be sure to brighten a friends day.  I like working with cards with different types of folds and the double sided cardstock makes it so easy to match the colors. The carstock used is from TPC Studio and is the "Sunny Bunny" collection.  I used the MS zig zag border punch on the front for dimension and added the flower sentiment using pop dots to set it off.  The flowers were cut with Nestabilities flower die. I added some bling using the Sunny Bunny shaped jewels. Love this little chickie!  You can see this card in person at the Crop Shop along with a lot of other beautiful cards and layouts.

Spring is definitely my favorite time of year, time to look forward to new beginnings and new birth!  This adorable stamp is such a breath of fresh air and is from the Bildmalarna stamp collection.

Butterfly Kisses!

I thought I would share another layout that I did from my son's wedding.  These were 2 of my favorite photos from the wedding. So romantic!  This is a 12x12 layout using designer CS from CTMH and DCWV and solid CS from Bazzill called String of Pearls.  Loved the shimmery color of this CS.  The title, Butterfly Kisses was cut on the Cricut using the Gypsy font using gold metallic and black CS, The embellishments are from Creative Charms and are from the Flared Flowers & Bling Kit in white.
