Enjoy Life's Simple Pleasures

Hello Friends~

Oh the weather outside is frightful......after having a good start to such a beautiful spring......we are now getting SNOW!!! I think Mother Nature needs to tell Old Man Winter it is time to pack his bags and go on vacation for at least 6 months! One good thing won't last long this time of year!!!!

I have a card today made with another Sarah Kay stamp from Stampavie.....they are all so darn cute! I again used my Copics to color her and her little puppy.....cut her out using my Oval Nesties and the Big Scalloped Ovals for the matte. I added some stickles to the image and also around the oval image. This beautiful DP is from My Mind's Eye and the cardstock is from Stampin' Up.

Here's the image....I only wish the stickles would photograph better. I just love this little cutie.
I made the card into an easel card. This is still my favorite card to make.

This sentiment is from Studio G.........a dollar stamp from Michael's.........gotta love those dollar stamps! The large flower is from Prima and the little one and the brad in the center are from heidi grace.

Stamps: Stampavie and Studio G
Inks: Memento, SU and Copics
Paper: MME and SU
Tools: Nesties, Cuttlebug, SU Scalloped Border Punch
Embellishments: Stardust Stickles, Flowers from Prima and heidi grace, Buttons and twine from my stash

Thanks for looking and I hope you are having a warm and beautiful day wherever you are!! As always if you like.......let a few kind words in the comments. Thank you.

Finally a card!

Hi All~ has been a while. Last week was a blur....we celebrated my in-laws 50th Wedding Anniversary on Saturday and we were all busy with preparations for that.......we had a lovely time and it was great seeing so many people we don't get to see often.

This a little card I made using one of my new Sarah Kay stamps from Stampavie. Ooooo isn't she just adorable? They are all so darn cute! I used my Copics to color her in and added some Stardust Stickles. I then cut the image out with my Octagonal Nesties and did a little faux stitching around the outside. I LOVE this is from My Mind's Eye.....the cardstock is from SU and Bazzill. I embossed the strip of Taken with Teal in my Cuttlebug and added a lacey punched border. The sentiment is from SU........ is a closer look at this little sweetie! The flowers were made using a SU punch and the swirl is an EK Success punch.....added a few little pearls and that is it.

Stamps: Stampavie and Stampin' Up
Ink: Memento, SU and Copics
Paper: MME, SU and Bazzill
Tools: Nestabilities, SU, MS and EKS punches
Embellies: Ribbon from SU and pearls and clip from stash
