April Showers...

Hi!  I finally got around to playing in another challenge over at SCS....The theme is "April Showers" and I found this adorable silhouette of a couple under an umbrella...I printed it out then traced around the umbrella on red card stock so I could cut it out and pop it up with pop dots....The very tips are taped a bit so the middle comes out the furthest for a 3-D effect...I only had three of these bling teardrops that I thought would be great for the raindrops!  Wish I had more but I went with what I had putting the focus on the right and having one drop about to hit her foot....A bit of black cardstock in each corner to give it a bit of a contemporary look....Hope you like it!  And yes it is raining here in Florida!  Hope you are all doing well....Hugs...

You're Fintastic!

Hi!  Hope you are all doing great!  I have to say its been so nice being able to play in the challenges over at SCS lately....I haven't been playing along as much as I use to and I have missed it...For todays challenge to chose an element I chose "water" cause I LOVE the ocean!  I used this adorable set from Birdie Brown Digi images who I am so happy I was able to purchase them before she closed up shop...I LOVE her designs and her cards are the best!  She is one of my favorite card designers...This card was inspired by a card she made using this set...I found the perfect paper in a stack I had that had a wave design!  I printed off the image and cut it out and popped it up along with the papers and then added the sentiment and some blue bling!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Peter Cottontail with Tulips...

Hi!  I played along with another challenge over at SCS to make a card with the Clean and Simple Design using tulips on it...So I got out this oldie but goodie set by Stampin Up called "Hello Spring."  It was one of the first sets I bought and I got the foam mounted one cause it was cheaper...I am so glad I still have it cause it makes for a cute CAS design...I watercolored the image and cut out the cut bunny and added a pom pom to his tail...a strip of green paper anchors him as he sits at the foot of the tulips....I hope you like this Clean and Simple card....TFL! Have a great day!

For Beautiful Lips Audrey Hepburn

Hello!  Its been such a long time since I have played along at the SCS challenges.  It was a very hard year for me last year..I lost my brother...(now both my brothers are gone) and I lost a very close friend....It put me down and out so I didnt feel up to creating much...I am hoping to get back into it more but only time will tell...I was inspired to make this card today and post it over at SCS for the CAS Challenge they have.  I found a saying by Audrey Hepburn and used part of it to go with this image...A bit of pink was added to her lips with a copic and some bling on her ear...The pink and black polka dotted satin ribbon was the last touch...Thanks so much for stopping by today....Have a wonderful week!

Merry Christmas Colorado Style!

Hi!  I wanted to post this Christmas card and wish you all a Merry Christmas!  It will be here before you know it....Thank you all so much who have stopped by my blog over the years...It means a lot to me!
On this card I used an adorable image from Penny Black stamps and I call it Colorado style because thats where my heart is this year with my Daughter, Son in Law and Grandkids out there, I wish I could be with them...I added a pom pom to his hat for fun and then to add some texture I used some Glittery Snow to the ground below him...I LOVE using this stuff! It gives it such a neat look...I had some glittery tree brads in my stash that my Aunt Lori gave me and they fit this card well...I wish I would have found this paper and these brads before I made all my cards this year.  I didn't have enough of the cute tree paper to make them all that way so it worked out....Thanks for stopping by today!  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Christmas Gift for Beach Lovers...

This year for my hubby's family Christmas Party I wanted to make something to give to the guests to take home as a reminder of our time at the beach...I used the sand from Daytona Beach Shores where we stayed and added tiny starfish, sand dollars and assorted shells, tied a sheer blue ribbon and printed out name tags a glued a tiny starfish on the tag...These were the same ornaments that were also used on our Beach Style Christmas Tree for the party...I had fun making these and they would be a great thing to give someone who loves the beach!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Merry Christmas!

Beach Style Christmas....


Our family Christmas party was held over at Daytona Beach this year...We decided to do a beach style Christmas tree in the living room where we stayed over at The Tropical Manor...Our room was a 3/2 ocean front that was perfect for the party...I have been collecting decorations to put on the tree all year...I used pink hibiscus, white finger starfish, Adirondack chairs in blue and pink (the pink ones have a tiny wicker hat and the blue one I added a white rolled up towel) white lanterns with battery operated tea lights that flicker, ceramic fish, blue round glitter ornaments, and clear ones with sand from Daytona Beach and shells were added...I used a white beach towel as the tree skirt and a large angel fish to match the smaller ones was put on top of the tree....I had so much fun creating this tree for our party....The second photo is of the front porch using a lantern with garland, hibiscus, white finger starfish and ocean blue ornaments that sparkle. A wicker hat and towel were placed on the chair for fun...I will be sharing some closer pics later tomorrow and a gift idea for beach lovers...Thanks for stopping by today!  Merry Christmas!
