The Lilac Set

Hello all ! I have been having computer problems...illness in the family...and other issues going on in my life. Thus the reason for not posting. I know you all have the same issues that just "goes with life." The good news is that all is well now with my family.

This card is made with the "Lilac Set" from Flourishes. It is the Magnolia stamps that I embossed with gold embossing glitter. I used Swarovski Crystals, and at the hand of the fairy, I used a rhinestone heart image. I used my Nestabilities Rectangles and the paper is from Once Upon A Time, Fairy Dust.

The problem with this card is...when I finished and was ready to take the picture, I noticed that I had glued everything upside and outside wrong...The only way I can use this card will be to cut the front of the card and glue it to another cardstock...Oh well, this kind of thing just happens sometimes...

Hope you all have a great week and thanks for your visits !!

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend. I know I really had some well-needed downtime. This is a quickie, because I have to get to work. This is another great stamp from Flourishes and it is from the Rock-A-Bye-Baby set. The Picture did not turn out very well...and I am working on that one...gotta get me some kind of Photography software. I used SU's Bashful Blue and Barely Banana cardstock, my Circle Nestabilities, my Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder, Miscellaneous Baby Paper from Michaels, Blue Satin Ribbon from Flourishes, and Pearls from SU's Pretties Kit. For deets, click on the picture and you can see it clearer.

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

These two cards I made in a hurry...Two of my friends have birthday's on the 4th and I only had a little bit of time to get these done. The stamp in the background is one that I won from Lynda Benden. It is from SU and is called "French Flair." This stamp is perfect for many swirly uses. I used Versamark ink and then covered the image with Red Glitter Embossing Powder and then used my heat gun. I punched out the stars from shiny paper I got from Michaels and then used red, white and blue ribbon to add to the patriotic touch. The sentiments were from my computer to make the cards personal and I also had a personalized sentiment on the inside.

Today I am happy to say is my rest day...and I plan on doing nothing but fun stuff...relaxing on my patio with music in the background, reading my latest book, watching a movie, and the best...making cards! I am so very blessed and I hope all of you have a very blessed and happy 4th. Keep safe! Thanks for your visit !
