Sunday Angel

Here's a sweet Angel from Magnolia. This is one of the older designs from this company. I came across a store selling it and just had to get this image. Super sweet. I hope that 2011 has been a great year for all of you. I know despite many things that have happened this year, for me and my DH, 2011 will always be a wonderful year to us. This is the first full year that I have gone with NO seizures, the first year I got to leave the USA on a wonderful trip to Istanbul Turkiye, the first year that my white blood cell count started to return to normal, the first year that my health has amazed all the doctors. I have so much to be Thankful for.

Captivated By Silence

Here's a stunning stamp from Sweet Pea artist Anna Marine called "Captivated by Silence" (Plate #160). This stamp takes my breath away. She's stunning. Be sure to take a look at the artist's coloring, it's very different from mine, so it gives you some idea of the beautiful range of this stamp. I did this card in many wonderful shades of pink. I have really been in pink mode lately, huh? Some of this women are just so beautiful that I just see the pink in them!Here's a close up of the image itself showing the coloring in Copic Markers.

I also added some ribbon and beautiful lace from Turkey. This image just makes me want to go grab more of this artist's wonderful stamps. Be sure to check out the awesome post christmas sale at the store.

Merry Christmas

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas. Here's an adorable card I made with the newest SWALK sets that came out at the end of December from Crafter's Companion. I hope everyone gets gloves to keep their cold hands warm and warm hearts to hug close to them. I know I will.

Here's an enlarged image that shows the wonderful girl. She's super adorable. I stamped her in black memento ink and colored her in alcohol ink markers. Check out the great borders, they are covered with Black Diamond Stickles. Yum.

I hope you all got everything on your wish list this christmas. I already know that my wildest dreams have already come true. Anything more that comes is just a wonderful gift from God. Many blessings everyone.

A Gift for You!

Here's a wonderful gift from Fluffles. He's one of my all time favorites, I wonder what he has? Makes me think of this cat, it was outside an office building that I worked at. It was of course a stray, but it got lots of attention from the office and was left food and water from there. Everyday that cat would go to the nearby field and catch a mouse. It would proudly bring that mouse right up to the back (glass) door of the office.It would sit the mouse there for an hour or two. A few hours later you would come back and the mouse would be gone. The next day, the same routine. I guess it was that cat's way of showing that he was doing his job and he wanted you to know. Sweetest cat.

Sarcastic Cheerleader

With all the stress that the holidays bring, I thought this funny card would bring a laugh to you today. I got this adorable image and the cute saying from Squigglefly. The image, called "Sarcastic Cheerleader" and the funny saying are both from artist Chesney Young.

Surprise BLOG HOP: Have a magical day!

Hello! Today's a surprise blog hop for Sweet Pea stamp owner Lynette, so I have made a special card just for her!! Here's a wonderful creation using stunning papers from Paper Temptress and a beautiful stamp from artist Rebecca Sinz of Sweet Pea stamp called "Sweet Demons." I used some beautiful textured papers along with some stunning stitched paisley that I acquired this summer at a ribbon store in Istanbul.

The stamped image is done on the Heavenly white paper, this paper is a wonderful thickness and is great for coloring with Copic Markers. I also die cut this paper using one of the newest Spellbinders. This paper is wonderful for stamping on.

After I die cut the paper, I layered it onto a great layer of black paper called black felt grandee. The beautiful column paper of the card is made from Red Pepper Thick columns.

The base of the card is covered in some wonderful stitched paisley designs. I got this awesome ribbon when visiting Istanbul this summer. There is literally a "ribbon district" that contains store after store after store of places that sell nothing but ribbons and laces. It's amazing. A real crafter's dream. I added the saying "Have a magical day" to the card because it goes so well with this image.

Now, off on the blog hop to Jennifer's blog, CLICK HERE. There will be a prize, so be sure to leave comments on all the blogs!

Happy Hopping!

Flowers for you

Here's a wonderful image from Stampavie artist Sarah Kay. I just love her girls. I guess this image is kind of spring or perhaps summer-y, but I think we had a little warmth turn up over that last few days. It went from the 40s-low 50s to as high as the mid 70s. That I appreciate. I tell my husband that God knew I wanted some warmer weather for my birthday and he was even kind enough to water the flowers too.Project Materials: Cardstock (Bazzill, DCWV, Neenah); Buttons (Jesse James); Stamp (Stampavie); Ink (Memento); Die Cuts (Spellbinders, Quickkutz); Color (Copic Markers); Adhesives (Pop dots, Glue All, Glue Dots);
