Enjoy Every Moment

This is a standard card - 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 - I scored the garden green cardstock diagonally and then sanded it. The morning glory flowers were colored using the watercolor pencils - then I sponged olive ink to soften the background.
Hope you like it :O)

This Miracle kit is available starting April 15th and costs just $19.95 - spend $40 and you can have it for $10 - spend $60 and get it for just $5!  - Hope you like them too :O)

More April Stamp of the month examples :O)

This adorable card was inspired by another CTMH consultant - Lisa Stenz - I love the way that this turned out
 Pam Jarrett inspired this one
I used the hydrangea style flowers in this one - It looks a little like a cup cake I think - so cute - I used the water color pencils to do the shading.
I am working on more - so watch this space :O)

Victorias Birthday Card

I used the bitty sparkles on the center panel and you will see how I have heavily scissor distressed the cream cardstock. I loved they way it turned out and so did she :O)

April's Class Projects

Hello everyone - have you missed me? I have had a lovely Easter weekend - power washing the deck, painting the dining room floor and gardening ready for my Brother in Law to come and visit this Friday. He is flying in from the UK so some severe tidying up needed doing!

Anyway - here are 2 of the projects that I am teaching this month;
I absolutely LOVE this paper - You rock - and I have added D1320 Shining Star where we have inked in Indian Corn Blue and then rolled the edges of the stamp in Pansy Purple. If you zoom in on the photo you will see that we are dry embossing vertical lines into the white cardstock base. The pattern for this card can be found in the Wishes card confidence program - page 97 with an additonal idea on page 43.

Another card we are making is this cute card featuring the April stamp of the month - D1409 Flower Pot
Markers add a fun look to the coloring in of the items - a cute Thank you card for any occasion. This time I have used the reverse of the Bella paper pack B&T.
Hope you like them :O)
