Movin' on

Friends of ours are moving so I made this card to welcome them to their new neighbourhood. The stamp is the Stampin'UP jumbo roller which is so much fun to use. I had rows of houses covering my desk while I was playing with the stamp. The paper is from My Minds Eye - Delightful collection. The fence is a MS punch that I had been looking for and finally picked up. The cute little cars are buttons that I have had in my stash for a while.

Happy Anniversary

I made this card for my sister-in-law and her husband who are celebrating their 20 anniversary today. When I saw this couple I thought it would be a reminder of how happy they will be as they grow together. Happy Anniversary and many more!

I was following the sketch by Michele Boyer at the KrafinKimmie challenge but at the end decided that it needed flowers. Along with glitter, flowers make my cards complete. The image is a KraftinKimmie stamp, Puddles of Love by Chrissy Armstrong, the little duck is from CraftersCompanion, Popcorn the Bear-Kids. I coloured with copics and added Glosssy Accents to the puddle to make it shine.

Cookies Anyone?

I have owned Nadine by Kraftin Kimmie for a whlie but I haven't inked her up until now.  The paper I used is Nursery Tales by Prima Marketing. If you look closely there is stripes in the background paper that are required for this weeks challenge. The sketch is from Sketch Saturday. Although it doesn't show up very well in the picture, the flowers are sparkled. I figure that you can never have too much glitter.
