Good Cheer

I thought I would share a card that I coloured at Scrapping Turtle last week. This is a Stamping Bella Uptown girl stamp. Although it doesn't photograph there is lots of glitter to make this card shine. I love this image it reminds me of me and my sisters at Christmas.

Throwing Snowballs

We had a great time at KraftinKimmie day last Saturday. Among the many make and take cards I coloured this cutie LUCAS throwing snowballs. It reminds me of how determined the kids were, you can see the mischief in his eyes. I used Carta Bella - Winter Fun papers with the Snow Day Lucas! stamp from KrafinKimmie's new release.

Colour Challenge

These colours were a challenge for me. They are darker than I am used to stamping with. The colours are Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo and Crumb Cake. I stamped and embossed The flowers from Mixed Bunch on  the Cherry Cobbler designer paper and on Crumb Cake. The sentiment is from Curly Cute. I am off on vacation at the end of the month and need to take a few thank you cards so I took this opportunity to make a card and enter a challenge.

This week over at the Kraftin Kimmie blog the challenge is to add a sentiment. I don't usually add sentiments except maybe for Happy Birthday so that the cards can be used for any occasion but on this card I added the phrase that came with Poppy. I used the Basic Grey Plumeria papers and my go to favourite copics V12. V15, and V17 to colour. I added Stickles to her dress and to the MS Hydrangea flowers.

Budding Gardener

This budding gardener is an image from the Springtime Lulu set from KraftinKimmie. The sunburst is a Karen Foster brad that adds a little bit of metal, although I thought I might qualify for the current challenge with the metal watering can. The papers are the new MME Miss Caroline Howdy Doody line. I can imagine that my mom will be working in her garden this weekend.

Athena is a Krafin Kimmie stamp. I like the saying that comes with her, "there is no courage without fear!". I know that my friend has the courage to get through the chemo treatments once again so I made this card to inspire her. The paper is from SEI and has a shimmer that doesn't come through in the picture. The trim is a chain from Webster Pages.

Valentine Fairy

I stamped Silver Fairy and the Love ticket (Whimsy Stamps) on my new Beckett paper. The paper colours like a dream- thanks Laurie! The Nestability (#9&#11) that I used to cut her out also is thanks to Laurie.  I used the Basic Grey papers from the 6x6 pad called kissing booth that I picked up at One Crazy Stamper last week. A friend of mine crochet the flowers, which I am finding are a favourite that I can't resist adding to every card I have been making.
