Pink Wishes

Well, our weather has turned a lot nicer and I actually got to wear shorts and golf shirt without a jacket to golf in on Monday morning.  Had a good time, even though my golf was not great, it was a Fun day as we  were counting our putts and that was the best part of my game.  Our team won the contest.

A birthday girl with a tiered cake image from Lili of the Valley.  I paper pieced her skirt and shoes and then used copics. Spellbinder flower and leaves die cuts and flowers; DP,  pearls  and stick pin from my stash.   Butterfly with pearls at the top -E K Success punch.  The frame is a die cut from Sizzix.  DP from my stash.

Wow it really is pink!!  Hope my friend like this colour!

Summer Flowers

Well I was going to post this last night, but watched the Voice instead and was busy most of the day, but I'm here at last.  Got wet shopping we have the odd good day, but too many rainy days!

This card is quite similar to my last one, but different colors and flowers.  I made the large one (Spellbinders die cut) and the three small ones (washie tape). The other two flowers are from Recollections.  Used a doily and added leaves, the butterfly, feather and the lace from my stash.  The sentiment is from Nettys Cards and the DP is from K & Company.

I was pleased with how this turned out with all the blues and whites.  Hope you like it!

Flowers For Your Birthday

I had a new Spellbinders die and I decided I would try to make a flower and so I started this card with this flower then added the small one from Memory Box Dies. And added some other flowers from my stash. Leaves are from Marianne Creatables and Spellbiners dies.  The doily they are on is from Spellbinders cut from K& Company DP.  Lace, sentiment, jewels for flowers and butterfly from my stash.

I made another similar card and I will post it later tonight if I have time.

Skate Board Boys

Started out as a bright sunny day to-day got to golf nine holes this morning, had coffee on the patio at the golf course.  Then as I was driving home just before noon, down came the rain and the temperature dropped a few degrees.  Our lucky day!
I enjoy working with Kenny K's digital images - always a bit of a wow factor!   The following two cards are for my Nieces twin boys birthdays.  Coloured with Copics and highlighted with some Glossy accents.  The background paper is from my scrapbooking stash.

Butterflies and Roses

This sweet image is from Fitztown and the card is for my granddaughter who is 11 tomorrow.  I have coloured the image with Copics,  Used coloured cardstock to frame her and for the base colour.   The feather is from my stash and the flowers are from Prima.  

It was such a gorgeous day to-day, sun all day and it actually made it very warm in the house.
Went with some friends for our annual Mothers Day game of golf. Really hard course, and I must say my game score was pretty bad, but I still managed to have a great day!

Girl Drummer

This card is for my granddaughter who just turned 13.  She has just had two lessons on her new drum set.  She also takes vocals and keyboard lessons at the same place - one after the other.  She is really into Batman and always has her hat on.  I took her for a pedicure a couple of weeks ago, and her mother and I both got a flower on our big toes, but she got the batman image on all of her toes!  Neat!
She looks more like a boy than a girl in this image, but she is a beautiful girl who also like to make cards!  She made all the invitations to her party 11 of them, didn't show them to her mother and took them to school the next day her party is to-morrow after school.  The invites were her style - cool!

This fantastic image is from Kenny K and I have coloured it with Copics and a silver paint pen and a silver gel pen. I added some silver stars, Batman logo on her hat and shirt and an elastic bow from my stash.  The sentiment is from Netty's Cards.

Chit Chat

This card is for a friend of mine that I have not seen too much of this winter as she has been care giver for her mother who has been in and out of the hospital for the last year.  I thought this was the perfect card to make for her because when I did get to see her each time it was only for a few minutes.

This cute digital image which is called Chit Chat is from Ditzi Digi Design coloured with copics.  Blue rhinestones down each side of the image and in a tiny flower at the bottom of the card.  The DP is from DCWV and has a lot of glitter on it which makes it appear to be a lighter colour than it really is. The sentiment is computer generated, and I just used the name of the image and made up the rest .
