Sending Sunshine

I have a friend who has just lifted my spirits and helped me out.  We giggle together and would do anything we could for each other.  I just wanted to make her a card to let her know how much she means to me.

Using distress ink and the magic stencil technique, the background was created.  A little stamping, a few sequins and a bright sun shiney card!

Hi you crafty people.  A little CAS, ombre, fish card today.

After creating the background with three different blue distress inks, bubbles were stamped and embossed.  A stamp with birthday presents surround the fish.  After coloring and adding a birthday hat to the fish, a sentiment strip was added.

Singing Birds

Hi stamping frineds!  We are celebrating spring all month and using our stamps with wings.  I hope you will join us by hopping along and linking up your things with wings projects!

A collage of song birds celebrating spring is just right for this challenge.  This card was made by using stamps in the background and embossing the song birds in brown.  A little colorsing and the card was complete by adding a button and tab.

Hope you are enjoying spring and that you play along with us by linking up your projects!  Thanks for your comments.

Coffee Time

The best words to hear when you have spent the morning working, you hit a point that a break would be welcome and someone says "COFFEE TIME"!  Whatever you are holding is instantly dropped and you are off to get a cuppa that warm coffee!

Using masks and stamps the design was made.  STAMPlorations has this coffee stamp that works perfectly with  the clocks.  A little colorsing and some clear sequins and it is instantly coffee time!

Hope you are enjoying a warm cup right now!  Thanks for stopping by.

Hello, You

Not a tech genius but the cell phones are great gadgets!  It is fun staying in contact and cell phones are great for quick contacts.  BUT, sometimes the old fashioned snail mail is awesome!  A note just to inspire or brighten a day.

My father traveled a lot for work and sometimes my mother would go on the road with him. I liked sending  quick notes to let them know they were in my thoughts while including some current pictires of the kids.

This card says it all in just three little words.

Thanks for stopping by and stay connected!
