A mother's love is like sunshine

Wow this is amazing I actually have been using my Copics and coloring again. I was going through a rough patch of not wanting to lift a marker for quite a long time. I actually had these Mo Manning images printed, but finally took the time to color them. This cutie with the large sunflower makes me smile.

It's You and Me against the world

I have been seeing everyone's gorgeous cards and I had to make just one. I have been overwhelmed by life, but had to take the time since I have so many coffee "things".  So I grabbed two different Tattered Angel Mist brown sprays for the background. I had some paper scraps of  paper that I had made by blending my Distress oxide inks together and die cut a small Spellbinder coffee cup.  I had a sentiment from TLC Create.  Then added a some twine, Spellbinder butterfly circle and flowers. There now I won't feel so jealous and left out, but I will need the coffee since I stayed up later than usual, lol.

My friend Andrea came up with this wonderful sketch last week at Tuesday Morning Sketches and I had it made, but just didn't get it posted.  The sentiment is from TLC, Create and the shaker is a pre-made that I picked up on clearance from Hobby Lobby. I embossed the white and pink papers. This is just a fun and magical birthday card for a young lady.

You are a Beam of Sunlight

I had this image that I had printed off a long time ago and it was sitting in my craft area and I finally put it together. It is from Faery Ink and my sentiment is from TLC, Create. Since Saturday was the first day of spring and I am so ready for it, I had fun putting this card together. I added sparkle to the wings with a Spectrum Noir pen which doesn't show up well in the photo.

Poinsettia with embossing

The past few years it has been my goal to make at least 2 Christmas cards each month and I have done well.....until this year. I'm quite behind in my holiday cards. I have tried to do some cleaning in my craft area and I found this wonderful freebie from Beccy's Place that I colored long ago and had sitting in a pile waiting to be put together. So I played instead of cleaned....again. I dry embossed the background and heat embossed the Tim Holtz sentiment.
