Happy 21st Birthday

Yay my daughter has finally turned 21 and she is so excited. I just had to make her a special card so I thought I would try my hand at coloring this gorgeous Kenny K digital stamp called "Movie Star". My daughter is such the diva so this was perfect plus purple is her favorite color. I'm entering this into the Kenny K's Krafty Krew  Happy Birthday Challenge #134

3 Weddings and a Box

It seems like everyone is either getting married or going to a wedding lately. This first set was made for a friend who is going to London for her father's wedding. I thought I would surprise her and make a card with a matching box.

Yellow and gray are one of my favorite color combos, so I had to use this new paper from DCWV called Lemon Flower Stack. The stamp set is called Love Story (Verve) and I used a silver flower that I took the center out of and added yellow and gray roses.

This card was for a Mojo Monday sketch challenge, that really had me stumped because of those panels. I couldn't figure them out for the life of me. Thank goodness ny daughter knew what to do and it worked out perfect. Her cousin is getting married this week so it worked out perfect. I've been hoarding this dp for over a year, and finally cut into it. I even made the flower from the gold paper. The sentiment, flower, and leaves are all Verve stamps.

This last card was a request from a friend whose sister is getting married. I went soft and romantic for this one using my favorite wedding couple from Inkadinkado, a pearl flourish and lavish wedding flower I found at Michael's.

Mother's Day

Since Mother's Day has come and gone, I thought I would show the cards that I made. I used Verve's  stamp set Love Deepens and Because of You for all the cards.
First up is a card I made for my wonderful momma. I went shabby chic on this one and used the current sketch from Mojo Monday. The dp is from DCWV (Mademosille), finally fot a chance to use tose fancy pearls I have been holding on to for months.

 This second one is for Mrs. Wheeler, who we call Nana. She has been such a blessing to me through the years, so I had to make her something special with her favorite color purple. I used the same dp from DCWV with lots of pearls.
 This one was for my good friend who I affeciatenly call Momma Pearl. This fabulous woman has been such an inspiration to me and is always there when I need her. I used dp from K & Company and a dimentional flower that coordinated with the dp.
 My sister friend Leonor got this lovely creation of blue and pink . When I think of her I always envision springtime and roses. The dp came from K & Company (Sweet Nectar).

For my God Mother's card I used the largest die from the Curved Rectangles nestabilities to make the card base and this yummy dp from DCWV(Lemon Flower). I added a rhinestone flourish and gren ribbon to complete the look.
So that's what I've been up to lately, see you next time!

Here I am again trying to get my Easter cards done in one week. Where does the time go? It seems that work just takes too much of my time, but I did get a chance to make this card that I'm gonna send to my aunt in Georgia.

The card base is the largest Curved Rectangels Nestabilities, and the dp is from Prima Marketing. I sponged the edges with Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress Inks, added some pearls and of course I had to add a big bow with a flower in the middle.

I'll be back tomorrow with a Viva la Verve card. So until then Ciao Baby!!

Two Valentine's Day Cards

Move over Thank You cards, it's time to make Valentine's Day cards now. This first card was made using week 3 of the Viva la Verve sketch. I love red and black together, they are so romantic. The dp is a new stack from DCWV (Immortal Love), I got it at Joann's and now I wish I bought the 12x12 stack and not the matstack. I used a stamp from Verve's Love Story stamp set, some lace from Michael's and of course flowers.

For my second card I went all "cotton candy pink" lol. I used the Mojo Monday sketch #174 and some dp from GCD Studios (Cloisonne). The stamp is from Verve (Heart's Desire) and the pearl flourish is from Zva Creative. I love these two and it's gonna be hard to part with them when the time comes, but at least they will warm someone's heart.
That's it for me tonight, but I will be back tomorrow night.
Blessings & Love
