So you thought I was gone?

Well, technically I have been m.i.a. being sick is no fun, but I've been busy making a few little things. They are mostly for a fundraiser I'll be taking part in that will be for an amazing cause. I can't wait to see what the other artists will be doing. I'm donating the painting I recently made of a fairy in a meadow and I hope some lucky little girl gets o take it home! Hope you're in the mood for some pics!
I've had this stamp for a while now, and finally decided to use it for a thank you card. I added glossy accents to the hearts. It's colored with watercolors and I purposely tore the edges of the paper to add texture. 

I made some Mother's Day cards for the fund raiser using my Cricut, it sure made things a lot easier! This lovely card is from A Child's Year. The stamp is Hero Arts. 

The flower is stamped, chalked, an distressed. With a little gem center. 

The colors in this paper inspired the Iron gate style of the front. 

I also added flowers, and glossy accents to the centers.

The inside of all the cards are finished with little details.

This set has a lovely vintage lace border and I used the paper to decorate the front. The card base is also from A Child's Year.

This card was slightly more masculine, but I added a heart, and a flower with twine as well as  white ink on the border to soften it a bit.

Another heart is added on the inside.

This card has a Tag from Sweethearts, and a stamp with some added sparkle. It's very subtle and soft.

Another Mother's Day card, this time with lace, a flower, and a Martha Stewart Border.
Inside of Mom's Day card.

To house the raffle tickets on my table, I made this basket which I learned to make from Splitcoast Stampers. I thought it would help "dress up" the table. The flowers are from GYPSY wanderings, and the border is a MS punch.

I added a brown satin ribbon and a white organdy one to tie it up nicely.

This flower got a bit of lace treatment, so as not to waste any of it!

These little coupon books might come in handy for little ones to give their mommies.
I printed several promises on the tickets, and made them with the Mother's Day 2010 cart-I LOVE IT!!

Finally, some chocolate clad baskets, with a little bling and lace, 'cause chocolate is to blame for a lot of us being mommies in the first place, LOL! shhh! These will have tissue paper to finish them off. THANKS FOR LOOKING!!

My Book of Special Memories Mini Album with Tonic Studios Dies

Hi friends,  I am here with a brand new set of dies from Tonic Studios and yet another adorable mini album! This one is perfect for a little girl, a mother of a little girl, or a cat lover, or all of the above! I am thrilled with this collection of dies, and how easily I am able to put paper on pages to assemble the perfect little personalized gift!

On the cover, and throughout, I have used the  CUTE GIRL collection from Crate Paper. As a cat-lover, I could not resist, and the floral designs were easy to repeat with the layered Tonic die-cut that I assembled and colored using Nuvo Pens and Nuvo Glitter pen. The little roses all have some sparkle!

The cluster of flowers is all handmade by yours truly, and I used Sizzix Dies by Tim Holtz, felt, and small pearls that I stitched together.  The cat, butterfly, and flower buttons helped me complete the look. Adorable!!

The spine of a book is equally as important as the front. So for this, I used all the little strips left over from my favor…

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.

OMG Moment

So have you ever had one? You know, an OMG moment? I end that phrase with "gosh" by the way. And yes, we all have OMG moments, and for that occasion, here's a card! Interpret as you wish. I'd like to enter it into Crafty Creations Challenge #111- In Stitches, and into Scrappy Moms  Smiley Cards challenge. TFL!
