Prayers for You

The Plant Manager where my husband works lost his battle with lung cancer on Saturday.  I made this card to send to his family.


I used a rock and roll technique on the flowers.  The ink is from PTI.  The first color is Orange Zest and the second color is Pure Poppy.

Wishing You a Smooth Recovery

A crafting friend of mine recently had knee replacement surgery.  I sure know how that feels because I have had both of mine replaced.  I made this card for her.


She is a fan of pink.  Do you think she will like this?  I hope you feel better soon, Lee.

I Miss You Sow Much

Our granddaughter came over to spend the night, and she wanted to make a card for her grandma in Florida.  This is what she came up with.


The inside says I Miss You Sow Much!  I think she had a fun time playing with my supplies, and she really did a fine job.  Beautifully done, Jovie!

Fuchsia & Hummingbird

I decided to play with another set that I haven't used before.  This one is called Humming Along and is from PTI.  I love the fuchsia flowers and the hummingbird.  I think this is the first year in many that I haven't had a fuchsia hanging basket by our front door.  This is a gorgeous plant.


I started with a Spellbinders die called Fancy Lattice.  This is another item that I haven't used much because I always had such a hard time getting it to cut with my Cuttlebug, but now that I have a Big Shot, it cut on the first run through.  The little humming bird is so sweet and I added some Wink of Stella to his wings and under belly for some added sparkle. 

Thanks so much for coming by to look.  Your kind comments are always appreciated.

Mod Squad - Mark It, Stamp It

This card will be entered into the Mark It, Stamp It Challenge at Mod Squad.


This was a fun challenge and a technique that I haven't done for a long time.  I chose a GKD set called Tropical Blooms.  I colored the flowers with my Zig Clean Color Markers and stamped onto white card stock.  I love making background paper.  I used some circle dies for the sentiment and then fussy cut two of the flowers and leaves.

Thanks so much for coming by to look.  Your kind comments are always appreciated.

Happy Birthday STVKC#35

This card is being entered into a challenge at Stamp TV - STVKC#35.


The requirement for this challenge is to use three pattern papers.  The pattern papers I chose are from the GKD Bold & Blooming pack.  I adore this paper!  The colors and patterns are beautiful.  Next, I chose one of the images from the new Stamp TV Kit Sentimental Summer - Your Own Kind of Beautiful.  I stamped the image with Versa Mark ink and embossed it with GKD Fine Detail White Embossing Powder on Ranger Distress Water Color Paper.  I colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers.
