Happy Birthday

This is the beautiful Fresh Floral Background stamp
and Budding Beauties Spring stamp set
from The Greetery.


I saw a card that Melissa Phillips had made on the
Ink to Paper site where she
used emboss resist and Lemon Tart and
Sweet Blush ink to make her background.
The colors are really beautiful together
and I couldn't wait to try it.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Sending Prayers

A very dear friend called me yesterday
to say her father had died.
I feel so bad for her and the family.
She said they were having a private family funeral
because they were only allowed ten people
including the priest to be there.


I have been playing around with the
Botanicuts Lily & Palm set
from The Greetery
and knew this is what I wanted to use.

It has been a struggle to even get in my
craft room since all of the
crazy virus stuff started.
It was nice to put the worry aside for awhile.


These flowers are gorgeous
and so much fun to make.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Your kind comments are always appreciated.

I hope everyone is safe and well
and I hope this all ends soon.

Happy Easter I Love My Peeps

When I first saw these adorable Peeps
from Ink To Paper, 
I immediately thought about their
Delightful Bunch Basket.
I love how it turned out!


I had to do some trimming on the extra
white space of the basket and
I used my Exacto knife to cut a slit along the rim
of the basket, so I could tuck my peeps and eggs
inside.


I sponged a white piece of card stock with
Distress Oxide inks in Milled Lavender,
Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick.
I splattered with those inks and Dusty Concord.
I also splattered some white acrylic ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Puppy Love

I made two versions of this card for our grandchildren.
This is the boy version.
Unfortunately, I put the girl version
in the envelope and sealed it
before I thought to take the picture.


My other issue is I had to have the hard drive
replaced on my laptop and in the process
I have lost the program my camera downloaded to
and I have lost the ability to add my name to 
the front of my photos.
Sheesh!  I hate change.

This sweet puppy is from My Favorite Things
and is called Puppy Love.
