Happy Birthday Whitney!!!

Hello my lovely friends!  Have you been wondering about my atrocious spelling?  If you read yesterday's post, you'll know that I'm about to share a birthday card I made for one of Chris' friends and that he MADE me spell everything wrong!  He was out the door with card in hand, driving off when I realized that I hadn't taken a photo of the card.  I called his cell phone (don't tell the police that he answered when he was driving...) and asked him to return so I could take a photo - which he did (yes, he's a sweetie!).  Anyway, as I was setting things up, I realized that EVERYONE was now going to see the bad spelling - yikes!  I told him that I was going to tell you that it was his idea.  Honest.

This is Celebrate from the Sweet Meets Sassy Collection 2 by Victoria Case for SCACD.
She's colored with the following copicsV17 V15 V12 V01; BG05 BG01 BG000; E49 E59 E25 E53; E11 E00 R20

You don't think I would show you this photo first with the wacky spelling, do you???  And just so you know, the sweet young lady this card went to is Whitney.  Happy Happy Birthday sweetie!!!

The fun dp is from Echo Park Summer Days and Cosmo Cricket Pixie-Licious.  I'm sorry, but I believe that Susana no longer carries these.  Please correct me, if I'm wrong - I looked and looked!  For the border around the image, I used an MS punch, then clipped the edges so it would bend around the nestie oval.  I've seen other people do this technique before, but as usual, I'm one of the LAST to use it lol!  Let's just say that I'm bringing it back hee hee...

The Lavendar embellishments I picked up at Michael's, but you KNOW that I'm gonna have to duplicate it using Mold n Pour and either Viva Decor Crystal Gel or Modeling Cream : )  It's just a matter of time cuz I only have these in one color!

Don't forget about my LOADS of Ribbon CANDY... Here.

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~

Do You Love Butterflies?

Have I told you lately how much I love you?  I think that it's been awhile... and who doesn't need to hear that???  Well, I DO!  I love you!!!  You always bring a smile to my face : )  You listen to my ups and downs and everything in-between!  Thank you for all your sweet comments about having pizza with my son, Chris (this is the first time I've shared his name with you).  We had a very good time!!!  I remember when I moved out of the house and how that changed the dynamics of my relationship with my parents.  I see the same thing with Chris.  Of course, I've always enjoyed his company... but something changes when your 'kids' move out.  I see how he's maturing and you know... he's one of the two BEST sons in the whole world!!!  *Disclaimer:  As not to offend you, I acknowledge that you also have the BEST children lol!!!

So... do you love butterflies as much as I do?  Now if you ask me (I know you didn't, but I'm gonna pretend that you did lol!) until I found some disgusting moth type insects in my pantry, I loved the symbolism and the beauty of butterflies.  Well, actually I still do love those things, but those darn moths poured ugly paint upon the beautiful tapestry in my mind!  Kinda like if you remember a boy named Brian in 3rd grade who sat next to you and picked his nose and put it on the desk (ewwwww!) then you may not be totally open to the name Brian (sorry Brian's out there...).  Of course, this is totally just supposing LOL!!!  That's what it's like with the moth/butterfly for me now, so when I saw Tulipa, I had to make the butterfly very colorful : )

Copics:  BG09 BG07 BG05 BG02 BG01 BG000 BG0000; YG63 YG03 YG01 YG00 YG0000; E49 E59 E25 E53; C2 C0.
Her wings are colored with BG000, given a coat of Viva Decor Transparent Gloss Gel and topped with Crystal Super Fine Glamour Dust.  Using the Gel Pen gives the wings a little more dimension than using glue and glitter.  Her headband was given a 'swipe' of Glitter Liner as was the edges of the very colorful butterfly : )  The cute li'l half pearls were made using my Cobalt Blue Paper Pen - I still LOVE my paper pens.  Note:  I see that Susana isn't carrying Cobalt Blue Paper Pens anymore, but a suitable substitution is Turquoise Pearl Pen!

The gorgeous dp is Chapter One by Kaisercraft, (now 15% off!) which I also used for the tulip tag.  Aren't the flowers awesome which accompany the stamps from the Fall Flora Fairies?  You can do so much with them!  If I had more time, I'd make my own dp using these tulips!  What other things can you dream up?  Inquiring minds want to know!!!

Tomorrow I will have a card to share that I made for Chris' friend.  I want to tell you in advance that he MADE me spell everything wrong - ha ha...  You'll see what I mean!!!

Have you entered my LOADS of Ribbon CANDY yet?  I've also included:

  • One Magnolia
  • One Kraftin' Kimmie
  • One TPC Rubber Cling Border Set
 Ends September 15

See you soon my friends ♥  Have a great week!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~

SCACD Stamp Co. Brings New Look... and CANDY!

Guess what Guess what?  My son is having pizza with us tonight!!!  I am SO EXCITED... but shhhhhhhh.... don't let him know LOL!  I just gotta stay cooooool... ya know???  Since I worked so hard digging in the dirt yesterday (actually pulling weeds, but the dirt under my nails looks like I've been digging!) my body is very sore and I'm relieved to order pizza for dinner - yay!!!

I know it's been awhile since I've posted.  I've been busy coloring up some BRAND NEW images from SCACD Stamp Co.  Now I have a confession to make.  The image I was going to show you today turned out awful - seriously.  REALLY awful!!!  I don't know what I was thinking... but there is NO WAY that you'll see it because I already threw it in the trash lol!  With that said, and my conscience clear...  I'm very excited to present to you Friendship Rose from SCACD Stamp Co.

Isn't she a cutie-pie?  I love how her skirt mimics the petals of a rose - which just so happens to be my favorite flower : )

She's of course colored with copics:  RV66 RV63 RV00 RV000; YG99 G94 G82 G40; E35 E34 YG21 YG20.  After coloring her wings with RVxx I covered them with Viva Decor Transparent Gloss Gel and sprinkled Crystal Glamour Dust on top.  You can see a hint of color, but lots of sparkle!  Oh so sorry for the poor photo... you can't see the bling very well : (  The 3D circles on her skirt were done the same way.  I believe I picked up the flower ribbon at JoAnn's and the sheer ribbon from Michael's.  Those fabulous rhinestones can be found Here.

A quick shot of the inside reveals the ROSE that accompanies Friendship Rose.  I used my nestabilities die to cut out a portion of the image which I layered on a strip of dp.  Very very easy : )

But that's not all!!!  There is a surprise for you at the Store Blog!  I know how much you love surprises *using my sweetest sing song voice* hee hee...  Not only is there CANDY up for grabs, but another BIG REVEAL for Sylvia Zet awaits you!  Do you LOVE Loli as much as I do?  Just wait til you feast your eyes on Loli's sister, Poppy : )  She's a doll!!!  I am totally in LOVE with all of Sylvia's adorable images and you will love 'em tooooo!
