In the garden....
Good evening,how is your week going?
Sunny weather always makes each day more cheerful.

This card is made with DCWV and bazzil paper.  All edges were stained with walnut.  The gorgeous image is a Lily Of the Valley stamp.  She was coloured with my copics, her wings have dazzling diamonds to show off her beautiful wings.  

The flourish, doilies flower and leaves are magnolia die.  The two smaller flowers are from Wild Orchid.  The lace edge and butterflies are MS punches.  Lace ribbon is from my stash.
I have used white opal liquid pearls, stardust stickles and crystal jewels for the added sparkle.

Here is a look at the inside.

Here is a look at how it sits up as an easle...  can't seem to get blogger to let me position the picture right side up though - lol.  

We are going into our May long weekend and looks like the weather is going to hold through it.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Just for YOU!

Happy Sunday,
hope your weekend has had many happy moments! 

Mailing cards to loved ones is what came to mind when
I made this card.  I used SU and DCWV Rustic Stack for the paper
 and stained all the edges with vintage photo.

This is a look at the layers to the sunflower of which SU crystal effects and stickles were used for added sparkle.  I used MS punches for the scalloped edges and butterfly.  

Waterfall and stardust stickles were used on the butterflies.  Sizzix die was used behind the adorable Lilly of the Valley image and Tim Holtz tattered flowers was used for my large flower.  I coloured the bear, sunflower and butterflies with my copics.  The sky was coloured with my water colour pencils.

A quick look at the inside .... I don't feel my card is complete unless I coordinate the inside.

Have a wonderful evening, I hope you enjoyed your visit and
best wishes for a great week.


For Mom!

Basket for Mom! 

hope you are having a wonderful week!

I made this card with Mom in mind.  
Gotta give Mom flowers in the spring!
I used bazzil and MS paper, distressed the edges and used MS punch.  I recycled cardboard by painting it white and adding crackle paint for a vintage look.  The tule is cut with a sizzix die and edges are stained with copics.

I coloured this gorgeous Magnolia Tilda from the butterfly collection with my copics and coloured in the sky with my watercolour light blue pencil.  I edged her with diamond stickles.  I put liquid pearls on her shoes and on the bows in her hair.  The centre of the flowers have blue stickles to add sparkle.  The purple punched flowers have dazzling diamonds on them and the WOC flowers have been spritzed with gold glimmer mist.  

The ribbon is from my stash.  This is what the inside looks like.

I am entering this into Crop Stop Challenge #18 of which I used their sketch,
Just Magnolia Week 105 and Creative Inspiration 111.

Best wishes,
