Congratulations on your new home

I have a friend that recently purchased a condo.  She has gone through a lot recently so this is a big deal.  I'm so proud of her so I made her this card using the Doodle Pantry image.  The wonderful sentiment is from TLC.

Happy Anniversary you are two of a kind

My sister and law and brother and law will be celebrating their anniversary so this is the card that I made for them using an image From the Heart.  The sentiment is from TLC.  For my birthday, I got some gorgeous rose so that inspired me to use yellow for these flowers.

I just love this image by Imagine that digis by Kris.  I used pop dots to make the golf balls 3-D.  I think this is the perfect male card.  The papers match perfectly and are available on the site also.

It's your day, Celebrate - Happy Birthday!

The seahorse is my favorite sea creature!  I colored this cute one with the balloons from Birthday Seahorse by Imagine That digis by Kris.  The sentiment came from TLC, Create.  I embossed the backgrounds and added some blue chalk ink to the them to give them a little water- like texture.  I also have some blue gems/bling for some extra dimension and sparkle.  I'm excited to display this one today since it is my birthday, hehe.  My daughter came home and was so sweet to have a carrot cake waiting for me when I came home from work tonight.  And muffins for breakfast.  My son is going to cut my grass tomorrow morning so I couldn't ask for a better day :) And to top it off we have plans to have dinner together and my sister-in-law and her family want to join.  I'm truly blessed.

It's hard to think of something with claws/pinchers to be cute or adorable; however, that is what the image from Imagine That digis by Kris is. It also has coordinating paper.  The sentiment comes from TLC.  It makes a great summer card.

Summer down by the Seashore

This week on Monday I had a minor surgery to have a biopsy of a nodule removed on my right chest/shoulder area.  It was a 3cm area so it was rather large and the area is now rather tender so that is why I haven't been coloring.  I have a nice bruise.  Luckily, it isn't cancer so I have nothing to complain about.  For my card, I used a gorgeous image from Imagine That Lighthouse.  The sentiment is from TLC.  It reminds me of the beautiful view I just had in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Hold the sprinkles

Last week I was on a wonderful vacation in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We left just before the start of the cherry festival which was being advertised in Traverse City, MI.  For my card, I was able to use the Bella's Beauties papers Tooty Fruity.  The image is called Parfait Delight.  And the sentiment comes from a great set at TLC, Create.  We have had a lot of humidity the past few days so I could go for a wonderful sundae like this.  I added the soda cap to give it a vintage look.

Imagine That July Challenge

I was so excited to find out that I was chosen to be a Guest Designer for July and August for Imagine That...digis by Kris.  For my first card is the July Challenge which happens to be Christmas in July which uses a wonderful set called "Meowy Mousemas".  Since I have three Siamese cats...I couldn't help coloring the cat just like one of my own.  I added some liquid applique to the hats and some liquid pearl to the cup.  It's hard to believe it's less than six months away to Christmas.  The sentiment is from TLC, Create.
