Hello Sunshine!

I thought this card was appropriate with Spring (and allergies) being here already!  I had so much fun making this card!  I think I might make a bunch of these and put them into sets.  :)

I used the Hello Sunshine stamp set and the Scripty Hello die cut both from Lawn fawn, copic markers to color, and the "Hello" is heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  

I hope you all like it!  :)

Let's get married!!

Hello everyone!!  I just wanted to share my latest.  I didn't realize it had been so long since I last posted, but life has kept me so busy, I haven't had much time for cards lately!

I went to a family member's wedding last month, and it was so much fun!  I love spending time with my extended family, we unfortunately don't get to see enough of each other except for once every few years.

Well, here are the first wedding cards I have ever made.  I tried to keep it simple and elegant.  Did I accomplish that?  I hope so!  The only difference between the two is that one has an embossed background and one has a smooth background.  I hope you enjoy seeing both!  :)

I used white cards, white cardstock, white embossing paste and dies from My Favorite Things, and the frame was made from Lawn Fawn stictched rectangle dies.  :)

Hello Baby!

I just found out this week that Kelly's teacher from last year just became a grandmother!  So I made a card from the Hello Baby stamp set.  The cloud is colored in with my wink of Stella glitter pen.  This card seems just a little too plain, even for my taste....  I'm not quite sure what to do to jazz it up at all... :/

Winter card!!

Here is the other winter card I did!  It's using a fall set, Into the woods, but I tried to put a winter wrist to it by adding a scarf and a bird from the winter sparrow set.  Enjoy!

Christmas cards

I have been playing around with a couple Christmas Stamp sets I have but I didn't share the first one I made!  This is the first one, and it was really labor intensive, so I'm not sure how any if those I will make.  I don't know if you can see it, but the lights and the letter to Santa are both a but glittery.  My favorite part of the card is the sparkly lights.  I hope you enjoy!

Birthday Fun with Dogs Thank Yous

These are a simple thank you card for my daughter's birthday.  I used Critters in the Dog Park for the dog and the other elements are a mixture of different stamp sets, but they are all Lawn Fawn.

I always enjoy making cards, but boy!  Fussy cutting elements over and over again sure does get time consuming!  :)

I really should be working on thank you cards (no fancy invites for my party, just a click or two on Facebook) for my birthday as it is coming up - this year is a milestone , but alas I find myself working on stuff for the kids as always.

Birthday fun with doggies!

Hello everyone!

Since I made invitations for my son with a water creature theme, my daughter wanted invitations too!  Luckily her birthday is not until early September, but these are a little more involved, so it's going to take me some serious time to make them.

I can not decide if I like the darker green grass in front or the lighter green grass in front....  Let me know what you think!  :)

Most of these images from the stamp set Critters at the Dog Park, but the candles, cloud, and sun are from other sets.  I added butterflies to the top one too, but I didn't realize I had taken the picture pre-butterflies!
