Spring is in the air . . .

and the Garden Gnomes are out!   :)

Mother's Day is coming....

As mother's day is coming, I decided to take one of my favorites out and make a mother's day card with it. This stamp, called "Mother and Child", shows a mom and little girl reading books together. I paired it with a saying from one of the inspiration sheets.

I colored the image with copic markers and used Nestabilities to cut the image. I added one of the Inspirational sayings from sheet #3 to the card. I also added some special bling just for my mom, whose favorite colors are pink and who loves the jewels.

Have a wonderful day!

Old Fashion Couple Tag!

main image from Time to Stamp Line - Nostalgic Couples Plate

Happy Easter....Giraffe?

Happy April Fool's Day!!

"Dare to be Different!" I love this saying. I think that stamp is great and when I saw this giraffe stamp I just had to put these images together! What a cute Easter card.
I used bright spring colors to make the card along with copic makers to color in the image. This stamp and saying a great keepers and will make both funny cards and at the same time I will make more serious cards for people that will inside reflect sayings congratulating them for being sucessful, "thinking out of the box", doing well even though they were different than everyone else. I can think of several great situations for cards like this! Guess I must be different, lol!!

Have a great week!!
