Good Morning!! Hope you are enjoying the blog hop. You should have arrived here from the very talented Patti's blog.

Are you ready to go on a journey to Fairyland? I know it is fantasy, but sometimes it feels good to go to la la land.(lol) This image is "Forest Fairy" From the Vault by Victoria Case for SCACD. There are two new fairy releases today. This is one and the other is "Spa Fairy". Beautiful creations by the DT showcasing both.

Okay, so I got a little carried away. While I was coloring with my Prismas I just imagined going to fairyland and there being sparkles in the sky and the deer with jewels on their back and everything just being sparkly and glitzy. I got lost in la la land for awhile and this is what I ended up creating. It was soooo much fun. I haven't used my Prismas in a long time, but I enjoyed using them for a change. The beautiful pink rhinestones are Kaisercraft. I really prefer these over other rhinestones because they seem to stick better. The lovely pink butterfly is a Maya Road Chipboard with DecoArt glamour ultra fine glitter paint with the rhinestones. The image is small, but if you click on the picture it will enlarge. It reads "Every man's life is a fairy tale written by God's fingers" by Hans Christian Andersen.

Corrosive Challenge - Animals
Let's Ink it Up - Stitching

Good Morning!! I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend. The weather here in Texas wasn't too bad, just really really windy. This is the first year I haven't had any grandchildren here and it was kinda lonely without them. It was just hubby and I and our little furry family. I have another peeker "Waiting For...." by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. The image reminds me of my grandchildren and I cannot wait to see them.

She is colored with Copics with just a little stickles on her hair ribbons and dress bow. The background paper is embossed with a beautiful Couture Creations Embossing Folder - Drifting Endless. The folders are wonderful because they are a little larger than the cuttlebug folders. These are 5 x 7.

Another angle. The DP is "Sparkling Spring". See the pretty little pearls they are Kaisercraft Pearls and Susana has them in different colors.

I am entering in the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes - Any 2 - Sparkle, Pearls, Die Cuts, Yellow
Stamptacular Sunday - Pile it On - Five Layers
The Crazy Challenge - Three Different Papers
Crafty Creations Challenge - It's as Easy as 1-2-3

Did you notice the red rose? It is by Prima- Gold Tipped. The ribbon is from my stash.

Thank you for coming by and viewing my card. I enjoy reading the comments and visiting your blogs.

Hi Little Friend !

Good Morning! It has been fabulous weather here other in Texas other than the wind and allergies. Springtime is one of my favorite seasons, even with the allergies. I love all the birds and flowers. This image is just a pefect reflection of friendship and spring. "Hey Birdy Peeker" is from "The Peeker Collection" for SCACD by Elisabeth Bell. If you have not had a chance to check out the entire collection, you will looooove them all.

I haven't made a pocket card in a long time and decided "Hey Birdy Peeker" with this beautiful DP would make a nice one. The DP is "Madeline". I used several different papers from the pad to show you how beautiful this pad is. The image is colored with Copics. There is a little Diamond Glaze on the water. Isn't that turquoise rose pretty? It is a Prima - Floret Thyme. The little embellishment in the bottom right hand corner is from my stash.

Entering the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes - Spring
Quirky Crafts - Sparkly, Punchy Spring
Cupcake Crafts - Lots of Layers
Everybody Art - Pearls
Cute Card Thursday - Weather Inspired (Spring)
Dutch Dare Challenge - Fancy Folds
Daring Cardmakers - Spring Fling
Fussy and Fancy - Make a Card for a Child
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Recipe

Just another pic to show a different angle. The butterflies are punched with my MS punch with Kaisercraft pearls on the body.

This is a pic of the back of the card with a different paper from the same pad. Spellbinder Nesties were used to cut out the scalloped circles so there would be a place to write a short note.

I wouldn't to show you a close up of this beautiful rose - Prima - Floret Thyme
with a little Maya Road Iridescent Pearl Mist sprayed on it. The mist gives it a beautiful finish.

I appreciate all of you stopping bye and viewing my work. You are a great inspiration.

Good Morning! Hope all of you have had a wonderful weekend! I have to apologize for the short post, but lots of pics. As some of you know, I have been dealing with my sick baby(dog - Punkin) and we were at the Vet twice Sat. and yesterday. Doesn't this image remind you of your daughter or granddaughter (or maybe even yourself) when you received your first ballerina jewelry box? I would wind mine up and sit and watch it forever and think and dream. This card is for one of my granddaughters and I think I will buy her a little ballerina jewelry box. She is 5 and takes dance lessons. Don't laugh - the butterfly is off of a hair clip one my granddaughters left her. I have never made this type of fold out card before so thought I would give it a try. The darling image is "Day Dreaming" from The Peekers by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. If you haven't seen the entire set, please check it out. They are all sooooo cute. She is colored with Copics with some Stickles added to her tutu and shoes. The swirl is a punch with a little Stickles added. The beautiful flower is one of the Petaloo - Mini Fabric Flowers. Susana has them in all different colors and each is different.
This is the inside. The bow on the top inside was made with my Bow Easy and the butterfly charm is from my stash. Entering the following challenges: Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Girls and Swirls Fussy and Fancy - Card for a Child Crafty Ann - Raise a Smile Creative Inspiration Wednesday - Punches and Dies Freshly Brewed - Flowers Creative Craft Friends - Swirls Paper Sundaes - Childhood Memories Crafts and Me - Glitter and Anything Goes

Just another pic to show a better closeup.

Finally, this is the final pic. (lol)

Good Morning! Well, today is the day for the release of "The Peekers - Elisabeth Bell for SCACD". This image is "New Beginnings" This set has to be my favorite. We are having a fun blog hop and hope you join us in the fun. You should have arrived here from the super talented Kim's Blog.
It has been along time since I made an easel card and I love this Kaisercraft Lullaby Paper so much I wanted to try and display as much as possible. The floral paper behind the image is from the same paper pad and is embossed. You may be able to see it if you click on the image and enlarge it. The paper for the sentiment is also from the paper pad. The beautiful large white flower is also from Kaisercraft.
To finish off the card I used a little Stickles on the baby stroller - can you believe I only used a little? The wheels on the stroller and her ribbon on her hat has Diamond Glaze applied and to finish it off I added some Kaisercraft Pearls. The pretty little pink dotted bow was made using my Bow Easy.
This is just another picture to show the beautiful paper - Kaisercraft Lullaby. The little 3D bunny just happened to be in my stash. Hope you are enjoying the blog! Now go on over to the creative Alex's Blog for more fun. Thank you for stopping by. I greatly appreciate it.

Good Morning! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. My little dog (Punkin) started having a hard time breathing early Fri. morning (3:30am) and we got her in to see her Vet asap. She had a collapsed lung due to a collapsed trachea from her coughing so much. The lung had detached itself from the wall and she had pleurisy. We prayed all weekend and had others praying and THANK GOD she came home today. She was in an oxygen chamber all weekend so her lungs could relax and it inflated, attached itself to the wall, and the pleurisy is gone. Bad news is the trachea cannot be repaired so if she starts coughing for any reason it could happen again. We haven't been able to pinpoint the reason for the coughing. We picked her up at noon today (Monday) but she isn't herself - all she has done is sleep. Please remember her in your prayers.Sorry for the lengthy story. Would you believe this card is for my grandson whose birthday was March 5th? There was so much going on personally last month I didn't get it finished in time. I have mailed it and he undersood. This image is "Celebrate" From the Vault by Victoria Case. The cake can be used for any occassion for celebration.

Since it was for a boy I chose primary colors of red, yellow, and green. It is kinda bright but that's okay. He likes bright cheery colors. If you click on the cake you can see the Stickles I used add a little glitz. For the top of the candle I used a little Viva Decor Pearl Pen. The image was colored with Copics. The balloons and tickets are from Whimsy Stamps.
The inside is plain but still bright and I had enough room to write him a message.

REMINDER: Actually 2:
