Pop Up Card

Hello! I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I spent the day with Samantha. I bought her a Beta fish! She is too
Here is my first attempt at a stand up or pop up card. I just love how it turned out. I hope you can tell there is dazzling diamonds on the flower part. I used orchid opulence on the base. The flower is from In Full Bloom and the phrase is from SAB. If you are interested I will post the directions and measurements.
Enjoy the remainder of your day!

Double Line Doodle

Hello everyone! Sorry I have not posted in a while. I have been taking an Accounting class and it has just been taking up so much of my time. Not too mention my two year old keeps me running. So my class is finally over, I still don't know my grade yet. Anyway, here is the newest set from Stampin' Up! that will be available July 1st. I just love this set. Thanks for looking and I will be posting more later today. Happy Memorial Day everyone!

Here is a card a made for a great friend who helped me get my Stampin' Up! business started. This is using the French Script background on true thyme with true thyme ink. I used a piece of the hodgepodge hardware with the bee from Measure of a Life hostess set. I added the grossgrain ribbin and checkered ribbon. You probably can't tell from the picture but there is dazzling diamonds on the bee's wings. I love that stuff! Have a great day and thanks for looking!

Love this little mouse

Hello again! Don't you just love those little House Mouse guys? I just adore this one 'relaxing' on grapes. I used True Thyme for the background and stamped the dots from Itty Bitty Backgrounds in true thyme ink, then I used Eggplant Envy as my mat. I created the scallops with my corner rounder punch without the guard. I added white organdy ribbon with a piece of checkered ribbon. The image is colored in with prisma color pencils and gamsol. Enjoy!

My first blog post !!!

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be a part of the blog world! Thanks to my great friends and 'sistahs' Erica and Ashley for their great inspiration on their blogs. Their links are posted here, so go and check them out!
I just love this great little alligator from the Wild About You set from Stampin Up! The background is done using the wax paper resist technique. So much fun and so easy to do. Finally something fun you can do with an iron! It is hard to tell in the picture but I added Crystal Effects to the eyes. Hope you all enjoy!
