Christmas Time Birthday

My beautiful daughter's birthday is on December 28th.  When she was (finally) born I made a promise never to celebrate her birthday on Christmas.  She gets 2 celebrations at Christmas time.
This is the card I created for her this year.  (Age not mentioned haha)


I used a Silhouette cut out and free paper I got from one of  my magazines for the background.
To spruce it up I used jewels along the outside edge of the "frosting" and centers of the peppermints.
I hope you like it and I hope she loves it.

Please leave me some love and let me know what you think?

A New Year's Wish

This is a card that came to me as I was making it.  I had a general idea but, well here it is.  Please leave some kind comments??

I used an image from "Faery Ink"  

There is a great deal more glitter to this card then the camera picked up.  The snowflakes, feathers, hatband, fur and the hands on the clock all are glittered.
You can find this image at the Faery Ink shop.

I used Copics, Spica glitter markers and Stickles.

Wedding Card

My Nephew married his beautiful wife and they wanted a handmade card from me.
There colors were gold and turquoise.  I kept my card gold an white.  I had purchased some beautiful papers just for this event.  I used a gold foil and a creme color with gold foil flourishes in the paper.  This was the result.


I hope you like it as much as they did.
Congrats to both of you.  We love you both.

AD4D Challenge #126

 
I decided to enter a challenge for a change.  I've had this image for quite sometime (1/2 colored)
 
and it always remained me of a set of tin ware cups we had hanging in our kitchen.
 
This is an image I purchased when I was a member of A Day For Daisies.
 
 
 
I colored the image with Copics, handmade my flowers and added cobalt rhinestones.
 
I added a ribbon between the image and the "newsprint" (which is what the challenge was).
 
I had fun adding all the white dots on the "tin" cup.
 
Challenge I am entering:
AD4D Challenge #126 - Add Some Newsprint

#42 ANYTHING BUT SQUARE 14 Jul

I love Ike's "Geranium Basket" !!  I can be used for so many occasions.   Thinking of you, Miss you, Get well, Happy Birthday and I'm sure you can think of many more.  I left off the sentiment since I'm not sure what I'm going to use it for yet. 
 
 
 



I dyed a paper doily from the "Dollar Store" and used Copics to color.
 
I used 2 shades of pink for the geraniums, a yellow and 2 shades of brown for the basket and 3 shades of green for the leaves.
 
I really do think everyone should have this in their stash so they can take their time or color in a rush to get it to the post.  Something always comes up that's been forgotten.  :-}


See you over at IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE
Where IKE will give you a freebie to use -So everyone can share!
 You could be the winner of free digi stamps.

My Doctor Card

 
An "IKE" work for my Doctor.
 
I've been with my Dr (and his nurse wife) for over 20 years.  He saw me when I was healthy and walking and work through to when I bounced off the walls (literally) to make it to an exam room.  We've been through a lot together.  So in order to thank him and his staff I created this.
Such knowledgeable and caring health care providers are a blessing.
 
 
 
The "extras" are Jolee stickers.


Father's Day 2015

I had all my cards ready to when 2 people told me that Father's Day wasn't for 2 weeks.  Well...it was in a week so I didn't get these out this year but I'll be ready come next year.  :-}

Little did they know they did me a favor....LOL and no one complained about not getting a card.
 
These are the cards I made:
 
 
For my Brother-in-Law that loves to travel.

 For my Brother-in-Law that's a star in our lives.
For the man that takes his grandson fishing.
 
I hope this gives you some ideas for next year.
