friends are life sustaining.

This is a sweet little image that I received from the wonderful Lacey Lassey.   I thank her so much for the kind and thoughtful deed in sending me a number of darling little girls :)    I did paper piecing for her outfit and colored the rest with copics.   I have been away from carding for quite some time but I hoping that these little ladies will give me the inspiration to get back on track.   I continue to enjoy looking at the wonderful work all you ladies do and I am so in awe of you all.

A wedding card I made for a friends daughter.    Used paper, lace, ribbon and pearls from my stash.  The wedding couple is a diji stamp and I used copics to color.

 I was not too happy with the last card I made for my daughter's birthday so I made another one.
I just love the graphic 45 papers.   The pleat fold came from a tutorial that I had in my computer from a year or so back but unfortunately I did not save the name of the lady who posted it :(    There is no coloring on this card just some stressing.     The ticket is for a lunch out :)

 My beautiful granddaughter is turning 13 next month so I have made this card for her.
Her dad is a computer programmer so she had a "mouse" in her little hand at about 8 months old.
She would sit on her dads knee and chase that mouse all over the screen.  It wasn't long before she was climbing up to it on her own.

Once on her feet, she loved to run and have someone throw a pillow at her and she would fall down and laugh so hard.       Now I can hardly believe she is turning 13....oh my goodness where has the time gone ?

 A birthday card for my wonderful daughter.   Thank you once again to Norma (from my craft room) for the inspiration.   Norma has great easy to follow tutorials and  is so creative :)   I used copics to color the sweet little "wee stamp" from Magnolia and the flowers stamp from Gina K.

Hello all.   Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.   Here in Canada we are having sunshine and then rain.  It changes about every 5 minutes but it is still a nice day over all.     I support an adult lady with disabilities in my home and I have made a Mother's Day card for her to send to her mom.     I used velum for the first time ever.   I used it on the butterfly wings.  I will certainly use it more often now that I have seen how easy it is to work with :)   I used the wee stamp "Peggy" but I'm sure of the name of the die cut I used as I have taken them all out of their folders :(  I colored her with copics.     Thank you Candy Mills (I love chocolate) for the lovely saying that I used on the inside of the card.   The lady I support colored the tilda on the inside with pencil crayons....I quilled the flower and the corner die is the Darlington Corner from 100% Steel craft die.      Thanks for stopping by and having a gander.

I have joined a card making class and these are three cards we made with the graphic 45 papers.  I love them, they are so fun to work with.   Hope you enjoy taking a look :)
