Fun with the "Golden Girls"

Well me and my girls had a fun afternoon on Friday, when I was surfing the web the other day I came across this website, and she makes the most beautiful cards, so I decided to have the girls over and make some flowers that they make on this website, we had so much fun. We started out making a hydrangea, it is alot of work, using the Martha Stewart hydrangea punch, we made just a purple hydrangea and it turned out really well, well I tried to make one using pale purple,a darker purple and a pale blue, well I was so pleased the way it turned out, the card I made also used layering nesties using the coordinating paper, I think it turned out really well. We also made a cornflower and queen elizabeth lace flowers, they are all lovely but loved the hydrangea the most. We also saw a bouguet of hearts which I made into a lovely card also, the cards are an awful lot of work but it was fun to try something different and spend time with "The Girls".

A series of cards

Here are a series of cards that I made in the past few weeks, the first one is from Make it Crafty, a digi image called Ornate Floral scroll, I did it for a friends son and wife's 3rd Wedding anniversary, its a gorgeous image that can be used for so many things. The next card is Zoe, also from Make it Crafty, she has "sooooooooo" much hair but was so much fun to color, I love brown and pink and loved coloring her. My next card is from Mo's Digital Pencil, one of my girls from Michaels, Alyssa is going to Brock university and she is a special young lady I wanted to do her a nice card wishing her all the best, she is a cutie. The last one is from Kennykdownloads, a fun one is my favourite christmas color this year, teal and red, just love,love,love that color scheme.

Happy Birthday Maureen

Well I have had a few busy weeks, most of you know that my job was terminated from "Michaels" but not to worry, I accepted a new job and start Tuesday at Home Sense, I am going to miss my buddies but not all the %^#&@*@&@^, so look for many more posts to come in the following weeks, I have done several cards but this one I am especially proud of, my favourite sisterinlaw Maureen turned 65 last week and I decided to do a Minitrifold scrapbook card, thanks to my buddy Gail for the link for the pattern for it, I love brown and blue and followed that color scheme, my daughter Nicole and hubby Don are on the left, my grandsons Wesley and Milo are next, aren't they cuties, hubby and me when we were in Jamaica in April, our new wee man due in December and of course Bryan and his lovely Katie are on the last picture, its a fun card to do especially for someone so special, She loved it!!!!

My first christmas card for 20ll, more to follow!!

I was browsing my computer on saturday night and saw this image and absolutely fell in love with it, two of my golden girl buddies are snowmen lovers and I think it has rubbed off on me, its a digi image from Sassy Designs, Hobo snowman in love, well you know me, I just love of the wall colors and loved this Bobunny paper, I wish I could find more, I have put fun ribbon from Michaels with snowflakes coordinating, and put snowflake buttons on it, I came up with the saying "Snow Matter what happens, I will always hold your heart" Enjoy!!

Bring on the Blue

Well grandson number 3 is on the way, my son and his fiancee found out friday that they are expecting a christmas miracle on the 20th of December, and its going to be a boy, my daughter has 2 boys so we have renamed our house "BoysRUs", its so exciting. So I made Katie and Bryan this card, I borrowed the title from my friend Tara, she did a card and it was so appropriate, I have used the Whiff of Joy image and have colored her with my copics and done with paper from a Baby Boy pad I found in my stash, isn't she cute.
