He made this day just for you

Here is a card that I made using an image from Imagine That called Bloom Where You are Planted and a sentiment from TLC.  I love the rainbow of colors.

Life's a beach go with flow

It's official - it's summer.  Today it's hot and humid here.  So it would be perfect to go to the beach.  The sentiment is from TLC.  The image is a freebie that I got from Melonheadz.  I put Glossy Accents on the sunglasses and some pearls on the earrings.

so Beautiful

I got the new release of stamps from Verve and had fun making this card.  I was also able to use the new dies.  It was nice to not have the sentiment be on white paper and actually be on patterned paper.

You are seriously awesome

My six year old nephew is taking a karate class so I made this card for him.  I usually send him some books occasionally so I thought this would be a good card to send along.  He is getting so big.

Wishing you a forever kind of love

Here is a wedding card that I made using the newest set from Verve.  The set is Love Everlasting and has such beautiful sentiments.  I added a cloth spin and some pearls.  I didn't want to add too many embellishments so that I could get it in the envelope.

FORE! you

Here is a quick card that I made using an set from Image That called Golf Set.  I have made quite a few cards from this set and it does have matching paper.  For this one I colored the sentiment, and added a border punch to look like grass and clouds.

Ready, set, relax Happy Father's Day

I have been meaning to sit down and make this card for my Dad and finally did it today.  I gave him his present the other day when he was over working on my house (still doing remodeling).  Since I have been little I always know that my Dad has a pocket knife on him so I thought this was the perfect die and stamp set from Art Impressions.
