Hot Chicks

This chick is so stink'in cute. Love her eyelashes. 
 Just like I love these two friends from elementary school and their "eyelashes"!
 Oh the glamor of it all! No I didn't try any on.
I had recently had lasik eye surgery and was a frady cat!

Bee Happy

Bright, fun and adorable is what this card is. And a bright, fun, adorable lady, Judi Birt, gave it to me for my Birthday. Thanks Judi for thinking of me on my special day.
 Debbie Bond-Luers sent me this lovely card. I think I may have shared it a few months back as it was a swap card. I do love it, especially the layers of yellow and white card stock tucked into the adorable corners. Thanks Deb for sending me sweet birthday wishes.

Back to School

I entered an ATC swap with the theme "Back to School". I didn't think it would be to hard, till I sat down to complete it. It was really hard! Guess I was having a bit of brain blockage when it came to creating one.

This isn't the ATC that was sent to my swap partner. She got a funny one, with mom celebrating that the kids were back in school. Sorry I didn't get a picture of it.

But in the mean time, I doodled this one and am really happy with the way it turned out. Plus in my heart, I really wouldn't mind going to art school for real.

When you are young and heading to collage and don't know what you want to do with the rest of your life. I promise when you get to the other side of life you will figure it out! I know encouraging thought - right!


 I would have a birthday everyday if it meant receiving a card like this. This is such a beautiful card with gorgeous use of papers. I love how my sweet friend Pam used papers she had with a few retired Stampin Up Stamps and pearls and flowers. The ink rubbed on the embossed little white card stock makes for a beautiful added layer of texture.
The inside is just as beautiful as the outside. Pam is one who loves to design cards that reminds her of the person she is sending it to, she picks out things that they like. She put a lot of thought, time and effort in her card making to get them just right for the person she is sending it to. Thank you so much for taking the time to make this perfectly beautiful handmade card just for me. I love it. It is worthy of framing and hanging on the wall.

Brought to Life

Watercolor pencils, aqua painter and micro black markers. Inspiration from pinterest. I love this layout, but you know I love hearts flowers and birds and bright colors.

Happy Birthday

I celebrated my 30ish plus birthday a few weeks past. Ya really you think I am going to reveal my age! Ha! I will however share a few of the most beautiful hand made cards with heartfelt messages written inside. I am usually the one sending cards, and once in a while I receive one myself. It is so awesome to get a handmade card, it truly makes ones day. Thank you Barb Brinkman for this adorable card.

This card is so great because it goes with using up those bits of scraps. Barb punched out squares from designer paper and glued them on the card front. She then stamped and punched out a few more stamped squares and circle embellishments and added a bow.

Beautiful Visitor

 We had a beautiful visitor to my flower garden the other day, and I wanted to share this wonderful story with you. When my mom passed a few years ago, my dear friend Beverly Bruce sent me a card with the most touching message in it. She knew my mom and how she loved butterflies. Bev's note read, " when you see a butterfly, think of it as a visit from your mom".
So now every time I see a butterfly large or small it brings wonderful memories of my mom. It is like a beautiful visit from her. I had one land on my shoulder the same day this one came to visit. Guess mom knows when I need a visit from her.
