Oceans of joy to you

 We are having a a hot, humid stretch that started so making a beach card was a great idea today. I used this great image from Gecko Galz and I have a net like die behind that I distressed with tan and gray inks and put some thread behind the image to give the feel of seaweed. With this gal pulling her hair back it let's you think there is a gentle breeze - I'm sure that she is not sweating like we are in this heat, lol. I will be entering this in the 

Sending you Stars to wish on

 I have another beautiful image from Gecko Galz for the Monthly card Challenge which is to use this unicorn. I used glitter papers in silver, black, turquoise and blues. I used lots of different styles and sizes of bling and gems. And there are Spellbinder dies, star punches and roses.

Christmas Mouse for Gecko Galz

 It's been quite a while since I last posted in this blog, but I wanted to have this adorable Christmas card that I made for the Gecko Galz Christmas Challenge. I printed the image on glossy photo paper and the DCWV Christmas paper has silver foil so that it shines nicely.

Hello Spring

 Today we have it raining all day and I have large puddles all over my yard. The birds were playing in them and it was driving my cat crazy. I know we need the rain, but I want more sun and some warmer weather. I made this card at the beginning of the month, but just haven't had a chance to post it. It is using some dies that I have had and just not used.

Snowman friend Merry Christmas

 I colored this image a long time ago, but found it now when I was moving. I put it together at the beginning of the month, but didn't get a chance to post it until a few minutes before the sketch challenge closed, whew. I just wish that I had more time to play; however, work and my daughter's wedding planning is keeping me busy. I just love this image and didn't want to let it go to waste.
