Easter Bonnets

Hey all!  Just a quick post today!  This image is a Besties Image from Sherri Baldy.  I've had it for I think 2 years now and have waited for the right creative juices to color it. It is the Easter season and these two look like sisters ready for the Easter parade in their super cute bonnets and outfits!)

While sticking with my "I will not buy any paper this year" New Year's resolution, I was going through my matstacks and came across this one called Lemon Flower from DCWV.  I actually colored up three of these images (took me 2 days) to go along with this paper- all the images look the same, but the paper use and card design is just a little different.  The pearls used are from Queen & Co. called "Nightfall".  The green little gem in her hat is from my stash.  Ice White Pearl Pen was used on her necklace.

Here are the Copic colors I used:

Here's the card...

Is it Spring yet?!

The sun is shining here, but it is soooo deceiving- only 28 degrees!  Yesterday it snowed- like everyone else, I'm done with snow!  The pond in our backyard is slowly starting to melt and believe it or not- I can see grass!!  It's brown and muddy, but I can see it!

Today I'm sharing a card with you that I absolutely love!  I found the tutorial for the card here.   She's got some pretty cool tutorials, so if you are looking for something new or unexpected to try, take a peek!

This card is called a Napkin Fold Card and as soon as I saw the tutorial I knew this would be something a kid would love!  In fact, I made it as a "thank you" for my friend's boys as they have been sharing their toys with my son.  They live by a creek and I new frogs are boy friendly so I gave this a try.

I used a TiddlyInks image called Little Hopper- Toadally Amazing.  I colored him with Copics (yeah, I didn't write those down- whoops!), used some Stickles for the glitter on the body and used Glossy Accents on the eyes.  The paper comes from Me & My Big Ideas- Mambi Sheets.

I know it looks complicated, but give it a try- the tutorial gives great instruction!  Enjoy!

Cool!  This card was recognized in the Sweet Six over at Cupcake Inspirations!

Happy Birthday Mom!

I made this card a while back for my mom's birthday and quick took a picture of it before I dropped it into her gift bag!  It's a super sweet image from the Wee Stamps Collection for Whimsy Stamps.  It's called Amy and it can be found here.  I wish I had taken better care of the coloring/ designer paper details, but, like I said, I snapped the pic just as it was going in the gift bag... sorry!  I do know that the sentiment is from Wild Rose Studio .
