Valentines for my girls

I just had to use some of my new items I bought from our lss that had a huge sale.....55% off everything in the store except for the Copic markers.  I bought several Quikutz dies..... which one was for making the pillow box.  I also bought two different sets of heart dies.  I used the med size out of each set to decorate these boxes.  I also used the new little Tilda stamp (pink one) that I just received in the mail.  The flowers were from my stash of plenty. lol  I colored the images with copics. I used a little stickles and ink to accent the hearts.  I have filled these little pillow boxes with goodies and I do hope my grand daughters enjoy receiving them.  I do not know why their skin looks so splotchy in the photos.  I have retaken them several times with the same result.  They do not look this way in person.  I do hope they are not lost in customs for too long. lol Thank you all for stopping by.  Hugs to all and God bless each of you.

Anniversary card for FF

This card was made for the challenge at Forever Friends this round for Ribbon or Lace.  I also searched You Tube for something new to try for another challenge group I am in.  The challenge in this group is to find something you have never done before and then post the inspiration it came from.  I want to thank Luv Lee Scrappin for inspiring me to attempt to create something new.  I had never heard of this type of easel card before and was amazed by hers the moment it popped up on the screen.

Our sponsor this week at FF is Pink Gem Designs.  We got to choose out images and I really liked these cute little birds for my anniversary card.   I colored them with copics and colored pencils.  I added paper flowers where stamped flowers were.  I popped parts of the images for more dimension so they would show better since this is a shadow box card.  The lace is just a small scrap I had left and almost tossed.  lol  I used MS punches for the leaves and small butterfly.  The ribbon on the lace and around the inner as well as the outer edges of the shadow is new.  I used TH distress tool on the edges and then inked in Chestnut Roan.  The pp are from a mini stack by My Minds Eye. The two hearts on the bottom are an old sizzlet die. Added a few beads and of course stickles and calletd this card done.  lol  It is no where near as pretty as the one from the video but I am happy that I tried something new and it turned out at all.  lol  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Please come join us at FF for this fun challenge!  Many hugs to you all and may God be with you in whatever you do.

Wishing You Happiness card

This is a card I made for a challenge group I am in.  The challenge is to use something new you got for Christmas. (if you didn't receive some scrappy gifts, then you were to use the newest thing from your stash).  Well, I did not receive scrappy items so I chose to use this little Tilda stamp I received last week.  I ordered with the idea of making my sister a here it is.  lol I colored her with copics.  The sentiment and die are from Whimsy.  The tag die is also new from Magnolia.  The little heart doilys are some I have had forever from MS.  The charm and ribbon are some of the first ones I bought when I started making cards several years ago.  And the little hearts are from a punch that I forgot I even owned until I was digging thru my punches looking for something else.  lol  My sister was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer.  I sent her a get well card already so this one just wishes her happiness.  I do hope it brings a smile to her face when she sees this cute little Tilda.

Thank you all for stopping by and may God always fill your hearts with His love.

A I......Card for my brother

Anything Goes is the challenge at Artistic Inspirations for this fortnight!  We have two wonderful sponsors...Bugaboo and StitchyBear.  I chose this cute little image from Stitchy Bear because I wanted to make my brother a card to let him know I am thinking of him.  He was diagnosed with lung cancer just before Christmas and is facing surgery and then long period of treatments.  When I saw this little image I thought it would give my brother a little smile.

I also wanted it to be a more clean and simple card so didn't add too many embellishments.  I colored the image with copics and used colored pencils for a little highlights.  The papers are scraps from other projects.  I sewed and inked the edges as you can see.  A very simple card but full of lots of love and prayers!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hugs and may God bless you all.

Forever Friends Favorite Embellishments

At Forever Friends this fortnight, the challenge is to use your favorite embellishment.  Well, me being me,......someone who does not make decisions.......cannot really decide what my favorite is! We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge... Meljens and Whoopsi Daisy.  I  picked one of the  images offered to us from  Meljens.  I am still learning the art of trying to color digis with copics and didn't smear this one so much so guess I am learning little by little.  lol  My sister had surgery this past Friday and I thought this image would work well for a get well card. I think the hardest part of making this card was cutting out around the image.   I wanted to make it a clean and simple card so did not add one of my favorite!  I did dig out the embossing folders, which I rarely let out of their box, and made the white background. The patterned papers are from a new little 6x6 pad from My Mind's Eye.  I think it is an older pad but I just got it so it is new to me!  lol   I did ink the edges and sewed around them which are two of my favorite embellishments.  Then came stickles which is at the top of my list on favorites too.  I used two different MS punches for the borders and a Nestie die for the sentiment.  The image and the sentiment are popped for a more 3-D look.  Finishing it off with a large bow, I called it done.  I so hope it will bring some cheer to my sister.  She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and needs lots of prayers.  My brother was diagnosed with lung cancer just before Christmas so Please keep them both  in your thoughts and prayers.  Thank you so much for stopping by and thank you even more if you take a moment to lift my family members up to our Lord for healing.  Hugs to all and God bless each of you.
