Happy Birthday Three Year Old!!

Hello Everyone!
What's up with you??  I am having fun here in Dreamland making lots of cards.  Here is a special order for a three year old's birthday!!

The cute mouse is from My Favorite Things and was colored with Copics.  I added lots of pretty layers and a fabulous, big bow. I totally lucked out with the letter tiles and had the correct letters to spell out the name.  How often does that happen!!???  Sweet!!  Also tucked a paper doily in on the side.

So glad you stopped by.  I hope you have a lovely day!

Bright Butterfly Cards

Hello Fellow Craft Divas!
Today's cards have a super bright color scheme.  Both cards are on the larger size: 5.5 square.  I decided both should be Birthday cards.

The butterflies were colored with markers. Paper doilies were added to both cards and a big lovely bow.

Love the super bright colors!!  Hope you day is super bright too!!!

Celebrate with Cake Birthday Card

Hello Everyone!
I came up with this fun layout one day.  I pulled out this fun stamp set--which I had not used yet-- and started stamping. 

The stamped images were colored with markers.

Stamped this on the inside:

I made a bunch of this design varying the papers and colors.

Really fun design. Thanks for stopping by today!! Hope you have a great day.

Happy Bee Day

Hello Crafting Divas,
I have a cute birthday card to share.  I used a few stickers that I had in my stash.  I am always trying to find ways to use stickers that I have bought.  I gave up on using them to embellish.  I find that using them as the focal point works much better.
This sticker set and paper is from Basic Grey.

The background is a striped dp with the addition of some heavier weight die cut strips - the daisy and, at the bottom, the lighter lavender strip.  I layered the circle sticker onto white CS and added with dimensional adhesive. And, added the bee stickers.


Just a fun way to incorporate stickers into your card making.  I don't purchase too many of them any more but sometimes a full sheet comes in a decorative paper set.  I feel it is a shame not to use them as the colors and designs are usually really pretty.   Thanks for stopping in today!!

Special Milestone Birthday--82 Years Young

Hello Fellow Crafting Divas,
This card was a special order for a milestone birthday of 82 years.  I wanted it to be very special--of course!  I used some beautiful gold foiled papers and a gold doily on this 6'' square card.

The numbers were stamped with Wisteria Wonder ink (Stampin' Up) and fussy cut.  The card base is Wisteria Wonder CS.  The papers are something I picked up at Michaels.
Numbers and Sentiment from a Stampin' Up set.


82 years certainly warrants a pretty handmade card.  Thanks for stopping by!!

Work of Art

Hello Everyone,
I have been busy with all my fun craftiness.  Finished two polar fleece pieced blankets.  I will take some photos and share those.  Also, working on cards.  Here is a pretty card for any  occasion.

This is an older Art Impression stamp that I layered over patterned cs and papers.

On the inside, I stamped a current Stampin' Up sentiment from the Work of Art set.

I really like the pairing of this sentiment with the paint brush image.  Fun!  See you next time.  Thanks for stopping by!

Floral All Occasion Card Set

Hello Dreamers!
Stopping in today to share a set of cards made with a digi.  The image was colored with copic markers.  Oh hey, there is that patterned CS again!  LOL  I think I may have used all of that now.

I left some blank on the inside and stamped sentiments on the others.  Just a bright and cheery card to make someone happy.

I hope you have a bright and cheery day!!

Floral Sympathy Card

Hello Everyone,
I wanted to share today's cards to illustrate that any stamp can be used to make a Sympathy card.  Several stamps were used in the cards: A background type from Stampendous, a tag from Impression Obsession, and a sentiment from Stampin' Up.

The leafy background was stamped multiple times on white CS.  The tag stamp happened to really coordinate with the back ground of life's nice coincidences.   LOL

The leaf pattern was stamped on the inside too.  I think the inside design could also be used on another card (more CAS) for the outside. 

Here is the same layout done in Greens.

See you next time for a group of all occasion cards with a water-can as the focal point.
