Coffee Break

A card especially for a friend that I have known for over 40 years!  We played softball together, and now, we golf to-gether.  I can't get her to make cards though!

I made this card based on a sketch from Feeling Sketchy which I followed quite closely, though I did choose to use several small flowers rather than one large one.

The digital image is from Lili of the Valley Ltd.  I think it is a very sweet image - two friends meeting for coffee.  I have colored the image with copics.  The designer papers I chose to use are from K&Company.
The sentiment was computer generated.  The small flowers are from Petaloo with rhinestones added to them.
Because of the sketch it went together quickly!

Have had my youngest grandson here this week, he is just over 2 years old and he does go to day care each day.  Tonight he helped me water the lawn and the garden as we have not had rain for a while. We had a lot of fun, but of course he ended up pretty wet, and was glad to get his jammies on for bed. His mom is working out of town this week and we are always so glad to have him come for a visit.  Hope you enjoyed your day!

Zebra and Foal

Well here I am yet again with another card for a male, having 8 grandsons and 3sons, I am starting to run out of ideas for manly cards.  I thought this card would be quite suitable!

The Zebra and Foal are a wonderful digital image from Delicious Doodles.  My photo is a little wonky, but the other photos turned out very dark, so decided to use this one.  I cut out the image and the grassy area at the bottom and added it to a piece of cardstock from DCWV , their Safari Chic Stack. I colored the grass with copics.  The tree I stamped with Memories, Licorice ink.  The tree is a stamp from Stampers Anonymous, Tim Holtz Collection.  I stamped it twice to make it taller.

I had another small Zebra stamp from Class Act which I used on the inside of the card,  The die cut I used fit in perfectly between the dots.  The die was part of a set from Nellie's Multi Frames.  I used  the same dotted paper from Lost & Found on the right side waiting for a sentiment.

Wonderful weather we are having here right now, warm, but not too hot, but I guess we could use some rain for the gardens and grass.

Golfing is Fun

Well here I am with another card for a male.  Last week I went to a party with three cards for my lady friends, and I can't believe I did not think to take a picture of any of them!  Another grandson is having a birthday and he will be 18.  He received new golf clubs for his birthday from his parents last week, and I think he has been out golfing with them every day since.

The main image is from the internet Clip Art.  The golf bag is a stamp made in the US but with no company name. Stamped with Tea Dye Distress Ink.  The Sentiment is a freebie image from Any Old Craft.  The ribbon and cardstock are from my stash.  It did not take long to make, but I think he will like it!
