Belles 'n Whistles Fairy Play

Hi All! I bought this darling image from Bells 'n Whistles Stamps. I just love all of their images and I have posted 3 of them since December. I want more!!!

Anyhoo, this image is called Fairy Play. She probably is a tooth fairy, but I thought she would do just great as a Happy Birthday Fairy. I used Paper Trey Ink's cardstock called Ocean Tides along with their Ocean Tides Swiss Dot Ribbbon. The designer paper is from Memory Box "Frond." The flowers came from my stash. I used a Spellbinders Nestie, which I cannot remember the name of (sry). I actually for the first time in forever, colored this fairy with my SU markers and then used a glitter pen on the bag some of her dress, the wand, and her wings. I also used Diamond Stickles on the wings. The brads again are from stash.

The little gable box is from Creative Cuts and More. I will fill it with goodies of some kind when I give this to my next birthday recipient. If you haven't yet, you need to visit Creative Cuts and More...they have such wonderful little packages that have already been scored so all you have to do is fold and use their Red Tacky Tape, which is a wonderful product and they have all sizes...plus they have just come out with White Tacky Tape which you can tear.

Thanks for your visits and comments. Have a great "rest" of the week!

Serendipity Stamps "Floral Frame"

Hi peeps!! I was asked by a friend to make a Golden Wedding Anniversary card and this what I came up with. The DP came from Hobby Lobby and isn't it just beautiful? I stamped the Floral Frame from Serendipity Stamps in Versamark and then used Gold Embossing Powder, which I heat embossed. The rings came from my DD's stash. The Gold ribbon beneath the frame is from my own stash. I punched the butterfly out of the same DP and put a gold glitter dot in the middle.

I have been busy cleaning one room at a time at my house. The patio was done this morning...I had a friend pressure wash the beautiful slate floor and now it looks so great I just wish I could stay out there and swing and sing...LOL...yes, I really do that and the acoustics out there makes me sound like a rock star...I sure hope the neighbors can't hear me though :)

Hope all of you are doing well! Thanks for all of your sweet wishes and making me feel great about posting again. The comments I receive are from some of the best in this crazy, but fun craft!!!

Butterfly Dreams from Papertrey Ink

Hi Everyone ~ I am back with another favorite of my Papertrey Ink collections. This one is called Butterfly Dreams and it has so many stamps in this set that you could make a mountai of cards with just this one set. As you can see I haven't been able to post much this year because of so much going on with my work, myself and my family. One thing I get angry at myself about is that all of a sudden someone has a Birthday, Baby, Wedding, etc. and I make the card/gift and forget to take a photo of it because I have to give it to the person the very next day. Recently I made a picture frame with a lovely creation in it for a friend at work...it would have been perfect for me to post it, but she had already given it to that someone that she wanted it made for. So, a lot of my not posting is my fault. Sorry bout that.

This card was made for a darling young lady at work that I have been friends with for years. She loved the color yellow and that is why I came up with the yellow theme. I cut two of the largest butterflies with a butterfly die from Papertrey and the smaller butterfly I just cut it out. I colored it with my Copic Markers and then put some "Ice Stickles" on top. I used the yellow glitter buttons from a pack I bought from Hobby Lobby on the corners and then put yellow stickles around the Spellbinders Labels Eleven with the sentiment in the middle. The ribbon and the gold pearls came from Hobby Lobby as well.

I hope you enjoy this little card...Mary, who I made the card for, just loved it. Here is wishing you all a great new week and I hope I can get back on the bandwagon and start posting more often. Thanks for stopping by !!!
