September is here! Amazing. The months and years seem to fly by. September brings knee replacement surgery to me. Little nervous but my knees were what took us off the road but of course then along came covid and changed everybody’s world.
Today’s card was made for a young friend who is moving to Michigan that I am going to miss! You might notice that I cut the flower out several times and stacked them instead of using 3-D-Dots. Love that trick.
Enjoy your first day of September! Fall is coming.
Good morning and happy Monday! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
On this card the white paper is dull gloss (link below) and the key to using it is making sure the ink dries before coloring! It’s so disappointing when it gets smudged. Alcohol ink markers were used to color the images. Loving these cheerful sunflowers right now!
Good Morning! The days just seem to move along quickly. I finished work a little early yesterday and was going to get busy with invoicing and sending orders out only to lose the internet! It’s hard to believe how dependent we are on the internet. One thing we can do – is stamp even when the internet is down!
I needed a card to send to a friend in the hospital so I went digging in my stash and was happy to find this card. The pictures just don’t do it justice! The colors are so pretty- orange and yellow.
How is it that it is July??! Half of 2021 gone. We have been busy with orders and work. I have a couple days off of work so hoping to get some things caught up. Kids coming tonight! So Excited! Have a save 4th of July!
I’ve been using a polka dot stencil that you see showing up on some of my cards. Any one who knows me know that I like polka dots! I stole this card layout from one of a Karissa’s card. I like the simplicity of it. Enjoy your day!
A sympathy card today. I love these flowers and bees! Can you tell? This is a good card for mailing because it is flat and will fit into a regular envelope nicely. The words can easily be changed to fit other occasions too. Links are below!
So this is how my cards start off generally. I will make lots of flowers and color and cut them out. I will stamp and punch out words. Then I’ll build kits of cards. Then when I need a card – I grab a kit and put it together with the words that I want! Then the rest gets put back into the kit pile.
I did add a little bee at the last minute. I needed a thank you card so I looked at my kits and came up with this card.
