Wonderful Wonderland Tag

I am on a mission to use what I have this month, and this year for that matter.  I made this Alice in Wonderland tag with things that I had on hand.   The challenge was issued at Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog to use metal and glass on an item.  Here is my interpretation:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful long weekend!

Sealed with a Kiss.......
Here is a super simple card featuring a flower image from the Sailing Pineapple.  I love the simplicity of this card and design.  So fun for a well-wish for a friend!

Happy Monday, everyone!

Big Dog Stamps from Crafty Secret

I haven't done a digital layout for a while, but I got these Crafty Secret Stamps call the Big Dog set and paired them with the Crafty Secret Creating with Vintage Images CD and here is what I got!

Let me know what you think of this "big dog," our best friend, Pearl.  We have had her for over 2 years and got her from the Oregon Humane Society.

Thanks for stopping by!

Crafty Secrets - Enjoy the Little Things Card

Thought I would join in on the Crafty Secret Linkie Party!  So here is my quick card made with some Creative Scraps I had on hand!  I added a silver background, part of a turquoise doily, silk ribbon flowers, pearls and a blingy pink ribbon.  The "bead" was hand crafted by me from some old scrap paper!  Enjoy this vintage image.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello There Card

Welcome spring and maybe even summer soon!  I hand colored this card background from Sailing Pineapple.  It was a freebie, this week, from their brand new blog.  The challenge was to use the colors; pink, blue, green and yellow, to construct a birthday card.  So here it is!

The coloring is done with Copic Markets and Sakura Gel pens.  I also misted with Ranger Perfect Pearl mist over the entire background, once it was dry.  So it has this beautiful fine shimmer, that can be seen in person, but is difficult to capture on a cloudy morning!

I hope that each of you has a beautiful day!
