I know it has been a while since I have posted...I've been so busy with everything that I haven't been the best blogger lately! But it has been a "good" busy :)

This card was made using Flourishes Rock-A-Bye-Baby stamps. Is this not the cutest?? I used blue cardstock with striped paper from Hobhy Lobby. Then the Rectangle Nestabilities, SU's Pretties Kit for the flowers, and Blue Swarovski Crystals. The ribbon is from Flourishes and it is called Steele Blue Sheer Ribbon. This ribbon is just great for making bows cause it just falls the way you want it to. My very favorite ribbon right now! I finished the stamped image with my Copic Ciao Markers. I hope I am right about this...Jan Marie at Flourishes had these images made from baby images she remembered from her childhood...I think they are just adorable and I know I will use these time and time again. Already my friends at work have purchased cards that I have made from these precious images.

Thanks for stopping by...I hope you all have a great week!

Another Graduation!

The graduates keep on a comin! This card was made for a dear friend of mine, whose daughter graduated from college. Then this past weekend this same friend had a daughter who got married. WOW was all I could think...I shoulda brought my camera and didn't even think of it (sometimes I hate myself). This was one of the most beautiful weddings I have been to. The reception was held at a beautiful house. The flower arrangements were to die for. There was a waiter at almost every door holding a tray of hor d'oeuvres. There was a "grits" room with all the trimmings and another room with shrimp, crab dip, fruit, veggies, casseroles, cheese balls and crackers, marinated asparagus, etc. There were two open bars with every kind of drink you could imagine. Then there was the outside where the chefs were cooking chicken wings, italian sausage, mini hamburgers, etc. The tables with glorious linens and centerpieces were all throughout the house and on the outside, which is where we sat. The band was a mix of jazz, blues and rock...just amazing. The bride was stunning in one of the most beautiful gowns I have ever seen. Her mom did not look bad fact she was just as beautiful!! Anyhoo, this was quite the wedding and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.

Oooppsie...I have got to get back to work...Hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

More Fairies

Hello All! Sorry it has been so long since my last post...I spent Friday and Saturday going to Fort Walton Beach, Florida with my sister, Ellen. It was my Uncle George and Aunt Barbara's 50th Golden Wedding Anniversary and their children gave them a surprise party that was to die for. There had to have been at least 100 people there and I am not exaggerating. My Uncle George and Aunt Barbara are the greatest! So many people just absolutely love them and it was such a treat to see their happiness. The food was abundant to say the least. They even had a wedding cake for Uncle George and Aunt Barbara to cut and feed each other. Plus a chocolate fountain and just about anything you would think of to eat...including a huge bowl of fresh shrimp. Oh my, I could go on and on...they had a huge tent set up in the backyard with tables and chairs...Uncle George's house is located right on the beach. It is a beautiful 3-story with a back porch that would make anyone envious. I was able to visit with relatives I haven't seen in 30 years...what fun my sister, and I had. When we arrived on Friday, we checked into our hotel room, which was just fabo...with a balcony looking over the beach and the waves just lapping and splashing...what a wonderful sound. We went babysit my Tyler and Elsa Grace so their parents could go out on a date nite...Those kids wore me out!!! Not to mention almost broke my are just a bundle of energy! The next morning we went and got breakfast and ate on the balcony just enjoying the view. Then we went to the party. Oh...I cannot tell you how good it was to see all of my family there to give tribute to Uncle George and Aunt Barbara.

On to this card...This is an Enchanted Fairies Stamp from Artful Inkables I hate to say it, but I honestly cannot remember where I got this paper...or the embellies. I just remember coloring with my Copic Ciao Markers and SU markers. I also used rhinestones on the embellies. Oh well, so much for a description of this card...just loved this little fairy and I know I will be using all of these faires again and again.

I have one more to post this week and then I will be giving away some "BLOG CANDY!!!" So keep posted.

I hope you all had a great weekend...Thanks for stopping by!

Enchanted Fairies

Here is another Artful Inkables precious fairy stamp!!! Is this not the cutest!! I love the innocence of this little baby! I used SU's Designer Series Paper Flowers for You for the background. SU's Lavendar Lace Cardstock with Nestabilities Square Die. I used my Copic Glitter Markers to color the little guy, rhinestones on his wings and his cap. Liquid Applique for the cloud with one Swarovski Purple Crystal on the cloud. I used a bit of Swiss Dot Ribbon with a SU Pretties Kit Pearl in the middle. I also used my Scor-Pal to make embossed lines above and below the sentiment! Hope you all enjoy!
