Fabulous Florets

this one is a blend of a couple of cards i saw online - the flowers are watercolored and cut out and popped on dimensionals - for the others i did (for a swap) i just used glue dots - this is just such a nice set! it also has a mum type flower with it....

Sunny Fun

this one was a lot of fun. my missing mojo is beginning to return - ha - my sponging leaves a bit to be desired, but i have seen so many cute versions of this - beach blankets, beach bags, sand castles - so here is my version - the last little boy in line just seemed so perfect to sit on a blanket - and we all know kids don't get out of the water willingly - only if the proper food is used to entice. his snowcone can't get much bigger!! lol

Graduation Card

this particular card idea came from lisa young at add ink and stamp. i used two different sentiments from word play. i couldn't decide which to use and serendipitously, with the mortar board attached, it changed the lower sentiment to be more like an extension of the upper one!. lisa hung her mortar board from a corner, which i really liked better than this, but the sentiment swayed me!


here is a direct case of the talented mike funke. this caught my eye when i first saw it - just so imaginative! the greenery in the tall, black embossed bird cage is the oak tree from lovely as a tree! amazing! this will get a sentiment as i need it -

triple layer Punch

you know, looking at this bow tells me this is a direct case of mary brown (stampercamper) again! i love her stuff!! daffodil delight, poppy parade and baja breeze. and a cute little black glitter brad. does anyone know why colors seem to NEED two names??!!! ok, silly question - i bet the answer just came to me! hahaha

Triple Layer Punch

this is such a cool punch! it does three different flower shapes! lends itself to so many different ideas! since i rarely have actual new ideas (!) i limit myself to two cases - i would love to tell you who, but again, it gets away when it sits! it is melon mambo, pacific point, and daffodil yellow. so nice and bright. perfect birthday cards!

Hello Blossoms

my first case of this card from stampercamper. mary does such nice work - the inks are peach parfait and pear pizzazz. the dsp is from the in colors patterns pack - peach. and a smudge of pear pizzazz ribbon.

Hello Blossoms

this card is another case of the talented stampercamper, mary brown. i just love her stuff! Amazing how the details leave after sitting a few weeks!! retired dsp - kaleidoscope, i believe, so saffron, night of navy card stock and the inks are old olive and peach parfait. no sentiment till i need it!
