PSC-Make it Feminine

Hello all. It's time for another fabulous challenge over at
This week we were to make a card that is all feminine.
My card is simple this week and made with all my scrap
piece. So here we go.
I used one of my Fiskars edge cutters to make my border
on both the card and my cover sheet. Then I threaded ribbon
through the larger holes, added a matching larger ribbon.
Took some scrap paper can cute 1" squares and some
3/4" squares with and flower cut out in the center. Added
some pearls for centers and my friendship sentiment.

I hope my card inspires you to find your crafty
space and create something special for our
challenge this week over at

Hope to see you.

Happy Crafting.

I love doing these digis. They are so fun
and very quirky.. Saturated Canary has an excellent 
eye for fun. So for my card today I did
this sassy little gal. She reminds of a 
Book series that I have in my library.
Junie B. Jones..She is sweet but 
very sassy.
I love the ability to color so freely. No matter
how you color these adorable images they 
just look fabulous..
My background is a lovely lavendar from Bazzil.
My swirls are from Poppy stamps and the flowers
are from Michaels in their $ bend.. Love those 
finds.. I added alittle bling and stitched around
the edge. My sentiment is from an old
sticker pack that was in my stash.

Happy Crafting..

PS- Color Challange

This weeks challenge is all about color.. Here
is the  palette you need to follow
Coral, Blue & Craft.
So here is what I came up with.
This image was a freebie and I'm sad to say I
didn't mark from who.. I usually label my freebies, but 
this one I didn't and I feel really badly about it..
Anyway, I colored her up using my copics.. I love
how I am becoming more comfortable using them.
I made my frames from my Lovely laced edged Sizzix die.
I stamped my sentiment on craft cardstock, rounded the corners,
placed a stack of matching flowers and a lepard ribbon to 
complete my image.. I think she turned out pretty darn cute.
I hope that you will join us over at
with your creativeness and the color combo..

Happy crafting.

TSC- Sympathy

Hello everyone.  What a weekend I had.. We had Easter dinner
wtih our oldest son's in laws. We were suppose to have allot
more folks here, but my Great Granddaughter decided that
Easter morn at 9:25 she was entering our world.. What a
joyous day it was. But enought about that. I have a card to talk about,
but really would rather talk about her.. LOL

Anyway, my card is a Sympathy and I chose
to use an stamp I already had.

I am such a floral gal and thought this card was 
just perfect for such an occation. I used a 
Martha Stewart butterfly punch, colored things in
with my fabulous Copics, used some flowers from 
a mixed bag and a sticker sentiment from
Lifes Little Sentiments..
