You Are The One

Here's a card I made for my sweet hubby for Valentine's Day.

The image is a great digi from Motivet.  Aren't they sweet?  I have my own mini pet bunny so I am always drawn to anything with a bunny on it.  The image is called Rabbits rowing.  The papers are from a great DCWV pad.  The designer is Susan Winget (love her stuff!!) and the collection is Botanicals.  The nice thing is I can do feminine and masculine cards from this stack!

I paint all my images with acrylics.  I use DecoArt Americana.  I'm sure in person the ones everyone else does with copics are prettier, but this is what I have, so its what I use.  The ribbon is probably vintage by now, its been in my stash forever!  And the flowers are from Wild Orchid.  I wish I could have every flower they make....maybe someday I will.  lol

Thanks for taking a peek!

Teacup Fairy

Today I have a card I made for a thank you for a special friend.  I am certainly thinking of spring and this card is inspired by my thoughts of spring!

The beautiful papers are from Susan Winget's Spring Blossom Collection for K & Co.  I love these papers!  The solid papers are from Coordinations.  I used my Fleur De Lis Spellbinders Shapeabilities for the photo corners.  I used the small die and cut it in half diagonally.

This image is so sweet.  I like to think I have sweet fairies like this in my garden.   My picture is blurry but she is from Mo's Digital Pencil and she is called Teacup Fairy.  I use DecoArt Americana paints to color my images.  I love the look of Copic markers, but I have so many bottles of paint, so that's what I use.

The beautiful flowers are from Wild Orchid.  The have the most beautiful flowers!  I also added some DMC pearl cotton with some seed beeds from Mill Hill.  The ribbons are from my stash.  I don't if you can tell, but the green leaves under the pink cherry blossoms are made from silk ribbon.  That touch comes from my stitching stash.

Thanks for taking a peek.

Hook, Line and Sinker

This is a card I made for my daughter's boyfriend to give my daughter on Valentine's Day.  The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil.  It is called Just a Knot.  It is perfect for them because they are both tall and skinny, she wears flip-flops all summer long and he is always wearing his favorite grey baseball hat.

The papers are The Paper Studio and My Mind's Eye.  I used a Martha Stewart border punch and punch around the page.  The pearls are from Queen and Co.  The ribbon came from Stampin' Up several years ago.

 And all the beautiful flowers are from Wild Orchid.  Their flowers are beautiful.  I have placed 3 orders with them so far and can't wait to get more!
