For Moms From The Kids

Challenge over at SAS4KIDS is calling for cards for mom that would be coming from the child. Between the two hospitals that I ship for there are about 210 kids, and our faithful card makers never let us down. I had this peel off sticker purse (Elizabeth Crafts), that I had already colored using SAKURA glaze and glitter pens. The sentiment is from Just Rite stamps and the papers are from Stamps of Life.

Needless to say this will be going to SAS4KIDS.  I would also like to enter the Cardz 4 Galz challenge (handbags and gladrags), Double “D” Challenge (neon/bright colors), Always for Fun challenges #1 (Anything Goes).

Fight Like A Girl

The challenge over at Words 2 Scrap By this month is to create a card supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I know women who have struggled with this and several who lost the battle. I am fortunate enough at this time not to have to send this card to anyone.

I have this sentiment from Stamplorations which I wanted to use and the Elizabeth Crafts outline sticker went well with the sentiment. I used acetate on the bottom of the card for interest and it also coordinated with the stripes in the shoe.  I colored the shoe with pencil and gel markers.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful day (it is here in PA).

Glow of Autumn

“Just before the death of flowers,

And before they are buried in snow,

There comes a festival season

When nature is all aglow.”

Almost Fall

I use these two images every fall and they remind me of back to school, fresh cool air, leaves falling, pumpkins, shorter days. We have had two beautiful days here in the Philadelphia area. It has been cool enough to turn off the air conditioning and open up the windows. Sitting out on the back porch after dinner with a glass of wine has been very relaxing.

The digital images are from Sassy Cheryl’s Stamps. I love how she brings childrens images to life with her sassiness.

Autumn SwingThis sweet image is called Autumn Swing. I used Copic markers to color the image and the papers, ribbon, cardstock and sentiment are from Stamps of Life (Happiness Collection). Stitched circle is Die-namics from My Favorite Things.

Noah's Prize Winning Pumpkin

I couldn’t leave the boys out. Look at this cute little fella. This image is Noah’s Prize Winning Pumpkin. I colored him with copics as well. I added a little detail with a copic liner on the pumpkin which I learned over at The Daily Marker where Kathy encouraged us to practice “eyelashes” — tiny lines to add some more interest to an image.  Adding the lines really made the pumpkin pop. I also used a wood grain embossing folder on Kraft cardstock. The sentiment is an Elizabeth Crafts die.

Thanks for stopping by.
