HAPPY FRIDAY!! Time for weekend crafting and fun. (YAY) Would you believe it was 76 degrees here yesterday in central Texas? Crazy crazy weather, but sure is nice and spring like - the birds are even chirping.

This image LILY from the SPRING FLORAL FAIRIES reminds me that spring is just around the corner. I just love the sweetness on her face.

LILY is colored with COPICS and for the beautiful glitz I used DECOART GLAMOUR DUST GLITTER PAINT -CRYSTAL. Sometimes the ultrafine glitter paint works better than Stickles - even though you guys know how much I loooooove Stickles. The bow was made using my BOW EASY and the flower and butterflies are from my stash.

Thank you for visiting me today. Please come back and let me know how I am doing.

HAPPY SUNDAY!!! The sun is shining here and it feels like a spring day with the birds chirping and squirrels playing.

Today SCACD is having a new release "SPRING FLORAL FAIRY by Carmen Medlin". I am presenting to you "POPPIE". I just love her sweet face and the little ladybug.

Please go to the store BLOG to see the DESIGNERS participating in this release. There are some cuties in the release.
The beautiful DP is BASIC GREY - PICADILLY. I sponged just a little pink on the paper to bring it all together. That is something I have just started doing - if the papers don't match perfectly just sponge a little ink on it. The beautiful vine border is a MEMORY BOX DIE - SAVANNAH BORDER. I embossed the background of the image with a CRAFTS TOO - SCROLLWORK folder.
With the images you get a flower accessory - the one on the front of the card is the pansy that comes with PANSELLA. Poppie is colored with COPICS and highlighted with SMOOCH - FROSTED AQUA and ILLUMINATE. The ladybug is glossed with DIAMOND GLAZE. Then to finish it off I used a sentiment from my stash and KAISERCRAFT PEARLS.

Here is a pic of the inside where I used the POPPY flower that comes with POPPIE. Oh, the little ladybugs are some I have had forever so I can't tell you anything about them.

Now, just in case you have forgotten, (lol) please go on over to the store BLOG and see the list of Designers so you can check them out.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and please come back and visit.

Happy Friday ! YAY!!!! Do you have a wonderful weekend planned? It is supposed to turn cold tonight so my time will be spent inside.

Before I tell you about my card I want to tell you about an exciting release this Sunday - 15th. I can tell you it has to do with Spring Fairies. So, please come back and visit.

This beautiful image is "CAROLYN'S BONSAI" by Carmen Medlin for SCACD. I like Bonsai's because they are so unique and interesting and calming to look at - at least for me. It is stamped with MEMENTO TUXEDO BLACK INK and colored with COPICS. The DP is Prima Madeline.

To finish off the card I applied KAISERCRAFT PEARLS and STICKLES on the little butterfly and on the MS butterfly.

Thank you for visiting and hope you enjoyed looking at my card. If you ever have any questions please email me.

DON'T FORGET to come back Sunday!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Good morning!! I hope all you had a very wonderful Christmas and New Year. I got to see my daughters and all my grandchildren - what could be better?

Before I tell you about my card, I want to let you know SCACD is reopening today at8:00am California time and Susana has a lot of new products which I have listed below.

Now to my card. This super cute image is "A CUPPA" from the Odds & Ends Sampler by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD. I thought of this image while I was in Colorado Springs and having a nice cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows. She is stamped with MEMENTO, highlighted with STICKLES and colored with COPICS.

Dress: R37-46-59-89 Bow/Ribbon: C1-2-5-7-9, W1-3, B97-99 Hair: E30-42-47-55-57-721
Skin: E21-01-00-000-0000 R20 Cup: B91-97-99

To finish off the card I used KAISERCRAFT PEARLS and a BO BUNNY TRINKET. The dp is also BO BUNNY

If you haven't tried the DELICATA GOLDEN GLITZ ink pad - you should. It has the same beautiful glitz and sparkle as if you had embossed. I stamped the sentiment with it on textured cardstock and it still came out beautiful. I also used it on the swirls for a little glitz. The swirls were made using the MEMORY BOX ELEGANT SCROLLWORK die. Then I cut it up to put around the image. Below is a picture of the entire swirl I used on the inside.

Just wanted to show you an inside picture so you could see how beautiful the MEMORY BOX ELEGANT SCROLLWORK is and also the MEMORY BOX RINGED BUCKLE - I just put a BO BUNNY TRINKET in the center and it looks really nice. Forgot to mention the blue/gray on the design paper is where I stamped some distress ink to bring in some blue so it would all coordinate.

Hope you enjoyed my card and you can always email me if you have any questions. Thank you so much for viewing and I would like to know what you think. I read every comment and really appreciate you taking the time.
