all the flowers

I've been making cards for my church's Connections Ministry,
which is a group of people who keep in contact with people who are homebound
or find it very difficult to make it to church, or people who have had surgery.
When I saw these stamps, designed by Graciellie Design
made by Sweet & Sassy Stamps, I knew I had to have them!

The Dogwood flower is actually my very favorite flower!
That may be why I liked this set so much

Colored with Copic markers & topped off with a bit of Wink of Stella

Good Golly

I received my Unity Stamp Company SMAK Monday and could not contain myself
I push all other things in life aside to start making things with it!

First thing I made was this one layer card
super clean & simple but I love how the words POP
using TH Oxide inks over other inks

Next I created a tag
I swirled & blended TH Oxide inks for the background
splattered water then stamped the girl image with Oxide ink so she was basically a ghost!
Added the Sentiment & chandelier
Used a silver pen to draw a "string" from her hand to the chandelier
Added a bit of bling, just because
Topped it off with ribbons & pearls

home sweet home

Gosh I just can't seem to keep up with my blog these days.
It's not like I'm that busy with life but I suppose I must be!

Here's my attempt at combining three completely different sets in one card
but they are all from Unity Stamp Company

Everything was colored with Copic Markers

Too Long

WOW! It has been way too long since I posted on my blog
but I'm still here!

This past weekend I got to spend several hours with my bestie who lives about 45 minutes away but with her having a senior in high school, me having a freshmen in college (who commutes to the university), and both of us with an additional child well, we're super busy people who just don't make enough time for each other. This called for a nice lunch with drinks, pedicures & shopping!

We hit up Tuesday Morning, here's my haul:

The came Sunday and I had some downtime in the afternoon so I got busy with my awesome new Tim Holtz Oxide Ink Pads ( LOVE THEM!!! ) and made this:

I had so much fun making it, I have another card started with the bird die you can see and also a scrapbook layout that is nagging me to use with this new paper pack! My head is a busy place ;-)

Have a beautiful day!
