Hey Chickie

Tuesday already...I am so excited for our vacation. Things at work have been just so sad. They laid off a total of 16 people with the last one being yesterday. It was so hard to say goodbye & to wonder how they will survive. I just might be in that boat soon, but for now I am just counting my blessings & praying for good things. This vacation will help lift my spirits (we will be seeing the SUN every day) and we will be in warm weather. This is a scaled down 20th wedding anniversary trip. Not as glamorous as Hawaii, but Vegas in the spring is nice.

I purchased some digi stamps from Pink Petticoat & thought this little chickie would be a fun mingle card. I made this for my sassysistah Danni & now that she has received I can share with all.

The image inside the card is a border stamp from Elzybell's Art Stamps. I love how this stamp is just so versatile. It fits pretty much all occasions.

Here comes Brewster Bunny

Happy Monday all. I am working on my easter cards & when I saw Brewster at Susana's Custom Art & Card Design store...I knew he was the one. I am learning to use my copic markers & think I did pretty well for a beginner. I also experimenting with my nesties. What a sweet little guy. I am working on several cards featuring Brewster & will post some more later this week.

Happy Friday!!

I was able to complete this card yesterday for my entry for the guest designer contest being held over at Susana's PCP Group. This is my entry for the Lockhart group. Isn't that just the cutest stamp? No words are really needed...the image says it all.My inspiration for this card came from Suzanne.
I used fun flock from CTMH for the tissue, K&Co paper, Bella baubles (sold at Susana's store), copics & CTMH markers. I didn't have the Hollyhock CS (CTMH) so I used my ink on white cardstock & it works great when you are framing a picture & just need the edges of color from the paper. Stop on over at Susana's blog...Follow Your Heart to see the wonderful creations by the design team & Suzanne's excellent tutorials.


Over at Susana's PCP group they are having a challenge to be a guest designer for April for the beautiful new Anki's Sweethearts for SCACD and the Lockhart stamps. This is my entry for Anki's Sweethearts. What do you think?
This cutie is Felicia & Crabby. Isn't she just adorable? I used my new copics & some CTMH markers along with colored flowers & Bella baubles. Don't you just love crabby...those eyes are the best. I might get a Lockheart card ready to go before the deadline tomorrow but I can't miss my Zumba class. It is really a blast & this is only my third class. That hours just whippes much fun & a great workout. This is also the sketch challenge for Splitcoaststampers or SCS.
I made this card with Michelle in mind...that is the reason for the saying. With all of the trials she is has had & is having to endure, she is always on my mind. We have know each other since the end of the 3rd grade, lets just say over 30 years, and it kills me knowing she is suffering. Plus she lives in southern Utah to boot. I try to send her little pick me ups so she at least smiles from time to time. Love ya hun {{{HUGS GALORE}}}!!!
