Shoes, Shoes & More Shoes

It rained again, but the sun is shining brightly now, not too warm, just right!  Hubby wants to go out soon, so hope I have enough time to post this.

Image is from Lili of the Valley coloured with Copics. The card is for a friend that I swear has a new pair of shoes every time I see her, which is every three or four weeks.  The turquoise circles strip is from Doodlebug, Paper Frills.  The flowers from Forever in Time  and the bow, charm and pearls from my stash.

Happy Birthday Box Card

Well, I finally made my first attempt at a box card - thanks to you tube - there are quite a few versions to check out, I think mine became a combination of several!  It was a lot of fun, but I must admit I have never ended up having to wash my hands so many times because of the glue that was all over my fingers!  The cardstock was from Colorbok and K&Company.  The inserts are all stickers except for the pinwheels.
I found I had to glue the stickers to a piece of cardstock before I glued them in place. The shiny paper they came on would just separate.  Didn't think to take a picture of it folded !

Thought this photo gave you a better view of the layers.

This is for our friend who has alzhiemers and parkinsons and is in a nursing home, hope he realizes it is for his birthday!

Flowers for You

Not raining to-day so that's a plus!  No great plans, but must try to do some more gardening - the weeds grow faster than the flowers with so much rain!

Another image from Lili of the Valley, I do love their stamps!  I coloured the image with Copics and then die cut the circles  and the doily behind the image and the punched border in that very bright pink/purple cardstock.  Then it took me a very long time to find some contrasting papers to go with it, finally choosing K&Company cardstock and paper!  A few gems at the bottom, a bright butterfly, and a tiny Birthday sentiment all from my stash and it was done!

A Little Blondie

This card is for a cute little girl, did not know she was coming till last minute, so made this in a hurry.  But she was very pleased with it, and she thought it really did look like her!

The image is from  Digi Stamps for Joy - perrfect for summer with her ice cream cone!


I coloured her with copics, added the sparkly border and used some stickers as embellishments. Cardstock and stickers from my stash.  

These are the birthday girls, their birthdays were a while ago, but I always like to have a cake and save their cards and gifts until they come to our  house to celebrate!  Kelsey and Regan, last time Regan visited she had short hair, cut just like the image!

Ready to Party

A card for one of my wonderful card playing friends.  We play every Thursday always have a great day, win or lose!
I chose an image from Mo's Digital Pencil called Penlope's Party Wagon because I think anyone would just love her!  I coloured the image with Copics.  The DP is from DCWV.  The flowers are a die cut from Memory Box, and the sentiment is from Netty's Cards.

Hope you like her, I think she is a truly adorable!

Pool Time

It is summertime here and that means that everyone has their pools open and my grandchildren do enjoy swimming!  Their parents have a pool in their yard - and are in it practically every day!  It is one of my granddaughters birthdays and I thought this would be a perfect card for her as she very much resembles the image from  Mo's Digital Pencil that I chose to use - she is very thin and has long legs and arms and long hair!

I coloured the image and background with copics.  The sun was from Mexico, the stars and starfish were from  my stash and the orange strips were cut with a Sizzix Die.
