I made this card for Mo Manning's blog celebrating her 100th image and wanted to participate in their challenge but time did not permit me to complete my card.  So, I decided to put it on Facebook and it came out fine.
Its a 5x7 card in white cardstock and matted with a turquoise piece of cardstock.  I cut out a Spellbinders Frame in light blue and attached a printed vellum paper for the back of the frame (sort of a lacey curtain effect),  The border is cut with a Stampin Up scallop border, bling is attached on one side with some Magenta peel offs in silver added to the two corners.  The image is of Mummu dancing - rejoicing and celebrating!
I have coloured the image with Copic markers.

Hope you enjoy this card as we celebrate 100 images from Mo.,  Thanks Mo!!

Anniversary Greetings

For my beautiful sister and her husband's wedding anniversary (I was their bridesmaid many many moons ago), I created this card using dark green cardstock with a window frame from Spellbinders in white.  I have also used two birds and leaves cut out of SU punch, the birds are cut out of a softer shade of green glitter cardstock.  A medallion cut out with a floral print was glued in the middle of the frame, tiny silver bling was glued as the eye of the bird.

 I wish them both the happiest of anniversaries and bless them with good health, now and always.

A card forgotten

I had made this card a while ago and did not remember it until my son-in-law emailed the picture a few days ago (Thanks Mark!).  Sometimes I make cards for my family and, of course, its a last minute requirement!  Luckily, I have cards already made but sometimes they need a specific style or colour - so, here I am, personalizing the card with a special person in mind.  I just adore the ribbon used here with the tiny pearls (yes, pearls are my best friend!).
Thats why, most or all of my cards are 'one of a kind' - I never use a sketch - its all in my head!  Sometimes I drft into space figuring out the colours or visualize a card to make!!  Its daydreaming in colour.

My grand-daughter loves to dance!

She is just so adorable dancing to the music of 'Hey Lets twist again' by Chubby Checker at 7am on a weekend at our house, of course, the song went on and on.  When I look at her, I see my own daughter who loved to dance to the music of Michael Jackson at that time.  So, I guess it runs in the family!

I am blessed with a little angel.
