Daisy Chain

I just think this little stamp is too cute, my great niece just turned 5 and she is a little red head so you know I had to color the little girl with red hair :)


After coloring the stamp I thought it needed a little extra something so I got out my little flower punch and added a few more daisy's along the top of the circle.  I am hoping this isn't too busy but I think kids like that any how :)

Flower with fern

I am once again using a flower image from my daily coloring calendar.  I colored it with markers then added it to cardstock, those coloring pages are quite thin, and fussy cut it out so I could give it a little lift.  The fern and branch die were done by first applying distress inks to white cardstock with my sponge applicator and then cutting out with the dies.

Homemade Digi

For my hubby's sisters birthday card, he made a digital stamp out of one of the pictures he took when we were on our trip out west, a sunflower in Kansas.  Then I colored it with pencils.

Happy Monkey's

My great nephew turned 4 this year and his parents take him to the Zoo all the time and I had heard he loved the monkeys so when I saw this 3 D stickers in the store I just had to buy them for his card, aren't they just the cutest, they just brought a smile to my face and hoped they would do the same for him.


The background clouds are from my daily coloring calendar, when I first flipped over to that day I thought now how am I going to use that one, but here we are :)  I just colored around them with a very light gray marker.  Die cut some branches and some rolling hills and added the stickers and stamped sentiment and I was done.  I have a few more monkeys left that were in the set so you may be seeing them again :)

Birdie Trio

I cut this out of white cardstock and colored with my markers, the background paper is a bit busy so I placed it onto a die cut to frame it.  Can you believe this paper was from a paper pack I bought when I first started cardmaking over 12 years ago, back then I didn't save any names of the paper I was buying, didn't have a blog or anything yet :)



The wing portion of the die can be removed and that is what I did but then I didn't like the white showing through so I used one of my sparkle pens to add a little color.

Tutti Design -- Birdie Trio die, colored w/markers
Spellbinders - Classic scalloped oval lg. die
My Favorite things - Label maker sentiment stamp
Spectrum Noir sparkle pens- Harvest moon (for wing)

We are enjoying some warm temps this weekend, the last they say, next week we get into the winter temperatures!

Hope you enjoy a lovely weekend,
Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by,
