Hoppy Easter!

I made this card for the High Hopes challenge this week. The challenge was to use buttons, and as you can see...I did!!
Details for this card are,
Stamps: High Hopes Bunny Blooms
Inks: Memento black, SU groovy guava and close to cocoa, copic markers, prismacolor pencils and OMS
Paper: Georgia pacific cs, Co-ordinations cs, My minds eye dp
Accessories: Prima flowers, may arts ribbon, flower from dollarama, buttons
The sentiment was made using my label maker, and the scallops under the bunny are made with SU's scalloped punch. Diamond glaze was used on the flowers to make them sparkley, and I used my white gell pen for some added effect on the image.

Thanks for looking, and have a great week!!

Birthday card for Kristine

Now that Kristine has received this card in the mail, I can show it to you!! I am so glad to hear that she liked it!!

Stamp is from Whipper Snapper (aren't they wonderful stamps), colored with copics and prismacolor pencils and OMS. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Bird-day designs clear set. Paper is from my stash, and as I am sure you noticed already, I did alot of stitching around the image and dp, and also used some star brads from my stash.

Well, I am off to bed, cause work is going to come too early in the morning. I just got some amazing images in the mail....gorjuss girls and a couple of Leanne Ellis stamps from Sugar Nellie and the Whiff of Joy spring kit from Whiff of Joy. I can't wait to have time to work with these amazing images. Hopefully you will see something soon!!

Card from a friend

Look what I received in the mail last week. An amazing card from my wonderful friend Kristine!!
I met Kristine a couple of years ago, when I first started blogging, and she has been a wonderful friend ever since. I am so lucky to have her in my life, first of all, because she is an absolutely amazing person, and second, because occasionally I get a card from her....which are ALL amazing and I will keep forever!!
Please go and check out Kristine's blog..."Ink Something". I am so proud of Kristine, because she has recently become a designer for 2 different stamp companies and is now branching out and selling her cards on Etsy. She is just amazing!!

I have a couple of cards to post for you this week...can you believe it??? I will be back soon....promise!!

Have a wonderful day!
