Dull Glossy Paper, flowers

Wednesday already! We are halfway through the week and glad for these long (mostly sunny) days. A lot more planting and yard work but the green grass and flowers are worth it. Quick card today with only one layer on cardstock and three stamps.

White paper is dull gloss. Flowers and butterflies were colored with copic markers.

Stamps: GG29 Geranium LG, D332 Thank you, AA31 Mini Butterfly

Birthday wishes! – April 3, 2020

Birthday

Loving how the copic markers make this flower look on the dull gloss paper! The dull gloss paper is 2.75″x4.25″, the cream paper behind is 3″x4.5″, the yellow strip is 0.875″x4″ (found in scrap bin!), and the polka dot paper is 4″x5.25″. Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday!

Good Afternoon…we have had some full and wonderful days with our family!  Did a little shopping today…got another pair of shoes today!  They are so cute.  That is one thing when I buy a pair of shoes…I never take a pair of shoes out.  With other things, like shirts, one goes in and one goes out…not shoes:)  Love shoes!  Bought red shoes today. 🙂

Notice that today’s card has a bead on it?  On the ribbon!

Hello, smile

 

 

Here are a few cards using hat pins on them.  I love making the pins and using them on cards…adds a nice little touch.

We’ve had some busy days since returning from CO… not doing much but just getting things re-organized, needed to do laundry, buy groceries, clean house, and, of course, make stamps again!  Just ordinary things that make each day a gift.  I want to cherish each day and love the little things in it.  Was really special to spend time with my parents and my brother while in Colorado.  We made some new memories to cherish.  Hope your ordinary days are special.
