tulips in winter...

OK, so I haven't been stamping per se but I have been card making... and that's gotta count for something, right?

The base and layers on this one were done at the CKC crop with goodies I either bought there or brought there. My intention was to make all this years Christmas cards at the crop. That didn't happen.

I can't remember who makes this image but I think you can get it at all that scraps. It was a wish that I stole out of someone elses wish stash. Thanks G!

hanging angels...

I was inspired by Beate's weekend sketch challenge (WSC97) but I rarely get time to create on the day challenges are published.

I stamped this Elzy months ago at Tracy Tripp's place. The same day I made that little birdie bind-it-all book. She's been sitting patiently on my french board all colored up and ready to go. Just waiting for a project especially for her. This was it!

pool par-tay...

The kids were invited to a birthday party last weekend and I made this card for the birthday girl. I started with a SFYTT sketch (lost the real keyword) but I forgot to add the shaped accent over the half circle... ooops! I don't think anyone noticed. No one has to know but me... well, and the three of you who read my blog (or at least look at the pictures.)

Beautiful Bella is colored with Copic Markers with a dab of Stickles on her eyes, dotted on the ribbons on her dress and was added to the hearts on the half circle.

Normally, I wouldn't put sage shadow with blush blossom and... uh.... ruby red? Yeah, ruby red! But I used a 6x6 stack I snagged at CKC for $2 and my original intent was to use another patterned paper from the stack on this as well and the green matched that other sheet perfectly. When all was ready to be glued I didn't like the other paper as much so I added the Stickles and kept the hearts. By the time I realized there wasn't any other green, the heart were already adhered. I do like those colors though. Good thing!
