Workshop Card

Trying to make a simple card for people that haven't stamped before but I also wanted it to be a "WOW". I'm happy with the results.

I Love Frogs

I haven't played with this stamp set in over a year now. It was one of my favorites when it first came out. Now that springtime is here I thought it was the perfect time to ink it back up. I was so excited to be able to color it with the Copic's I have been accumulating over the past 2 or 3 months. Watercoloring is not one of my favorite things to do but the Copic's are so easy to color with. I just love them. I'm slowly accumulating some that match our Stampin' Up! colors very close.

I can't remember where I got the sentiment I put on the card but I think it's funny. A few times while working tax season this Spring I would have loved to take this frog's advice. LOL!! There were a couple of people that brought this sentiment to mind.

Have a great week and thanks for looking!!

Happy Birthday Chuck

I made this card for my husband Chuck. His birthday is tomorrow, the 23rd. He is the love of my life and God richly blessed me when he put him in my life. I couldn't ask for a better Dad for my son either. He thinks our son hung the moon which makes me love him even more. I love you Chuck!!!

I made this card in about 15 minutes. I think it is the quickest card I have ever made but I'm really happy with how it turned out. Masculine cards are hard for me. I have more thoughts in my head for "frilly" cards.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!!

Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge - WSC44

Here is my entry for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I haven't gotten to play along in quite a while and this was a fun sketch to start back with. My stamping friends know that I love bright colors. I also wanted to use my new Flower Fusion felt flowers. I actually used a lot of things that I have had but haven't used yet. Felt Flowers, Rub-ons, and Silver Hodgepodge Hardware.

Thanks for looking and have a great week.

FINALLY - A Post From Me

Mark it down on your calendars ladies. April 15th is over and I'm back. I could not wait to make a card after working so many hours during tax season the past few weeks. I actually made this card the night of the 15th but haven't had the energy to post it until now. All my extra time since I have been off has been spent with one of the most precious things God has ever blessed me with, my 9-year old son Garrett. I missed him beyond words.

This card was inspired from Lauren Meader's (SCS name - mytime) sketch that you can see here.

I hope to be back to posting a card at least 2 or 3 times a week now so check back often. I've missed everyone and all your comments.
