Sports Mom's Prayer

This is a very sweet prayer that a friend of mine sent me. Life right now seems very similar to this. 
 :-)    I thought I would share. Have a wonderful day.

Pink, sweet Camilla's

Happy Friday! Ready for another fun filled weekend? Tomorrow morning we are walking in the March Of Dimes Walk America with the kids down town. Get some good exercise in and help babies, can't beat that!  ;-)  

Earlier this week I showed you a gift wrapped box that this card was delivered in. If you missed the tutorial, check it out here. These Simply Camilla's are stamped on white card stock and colored with various Copic Markers. Some scrap designer paper is added to the bottom of the front main panel and inside to match. A few sequins for accent and voila! Crisp and clean feeling all around!

Rest up and relax

Now this is what I should be doing instead of washing grass and dirt out of uniforms. ha ha!!!  This House Mouse stamp has only been inked up a few times and thought it needed some love today. My card is actually for my secret house mouse deliveries that I have been doing. She is super stressed right now and this is the perfect card to say rest up and relax for a little bit. I stamped the image on white card stock and colored with various Copics. A simple layer or two of designer paper and a fancy edge using Nostaglia Die-Light. Added a brad and circle topper and voila! Very easy peasy card. Have a wonderful day.

FS428 Thanks so much

This weeks Featured Stamper 428 is Mary aka maryj68. Congrats Mary! Colorful and fresh gallery that I really enjoyed looking through. I choose this Grown up Thank you card to case. I kept with the theme of florals in a vase, over all sketch and colors. Changed the stamp, papers and my sentiment panel. Hope you can play along this week. 

My Arranging Roses is printed on white card stock and colored with Copic markers. The sea foam and pink color combo is a favorite color array with me right now, so plan to see more of this soon.  ;-)   Once colored I layered a Beautiful Borders die for the edges and adhered to the base of the card that has two strips of designer paper layered down. Added my sentiment from Dynamic Duos Glads and Gerberas and a few jewels. Voila!

Flowering Branches

Squeel!!! Did you see the new Instant Garden release on the 15th? Be still my heart right? This is the beautiful Flowering Branches. A few clicks and you can have this in your in box ready to print, color and create with! Check out Marcy's inspiration and notes behind this beautiful drawing HERE

My creation today is pretty straight forward. I really wanted the focus to be on the blooms so I went with a white on white card today. Okay... not much different from normal but you know what I mean.  ;-)  After my blooms were colored I added a Beautiful Borders die cut edge to the left side and a few sequins to the front. My sentiment Happy Mother's day is on a tag that I pierced the edges and notched the end. Some sparkles finishes it off, voila!
