This is the card I made for my Daddy for Father's Day. These stamps and matching sentiments are from the hillbilly series at PKS. This card was perfect for my dad because Georgia has a rich moonshining The other stamps and sentiments (DAD) and (World's Greatest Dad Stamp) are from Hampton Arts. The paper I used is from Bazzill. The lined paper is from GCD studios and I colored the images with my Copic markers of course. :) The images and sentiments were stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Peachy Keen Stamps: Sketch Challenge 54

This is the card I'm entering for the Peachy Keen Stamps: Sketch Challenge 54. The Apples are so cute with their little PKS faces. The Apples, Faces and Tag sentiment are all from PKS. The birthday sentiment is from Amy R. Stamps "It's Your Birthday" Collection by C. C. Designs.

Simple B-day Card

I made this simple card last night. I just think it's so cute. I used green cardstock from Colorbok, Ranger Adirondack Ink in Meadow, my cuddle bug with swiss dots embossing folder, Peachy Keen Stamps for the face on the flower and Cottage Cutz Potted Flower die from PKS also. I colored the flower with my Copic markers and used some scrap ribbon I had in a scrap container. I stamped the sentiment with the meadow ink using Amy R Stamps "It's Your Birthday" stamps by C.C. Designs. I know it's a long list of materials but it went together super fast. I plan to make a lot of these in different varieties to have available for various occasions. Hope you enjoy!

The Kids' Water Lilies

Got this idea off the Mod Podge Rocks page. It was very simple and the kids loved doing it. I must say, they did a really good job and the colors are beautiful. My crafty kids! :)

Some Canvas Art Using Mod Podge...Love this stuff!!

Made a funky piece of wall art, using a piece of canvas. some paper, fabric and ribbon. Then I applied some butterfly spangles. I painted the bright color edges using acrylic paints. This piece is hanging in my daughter's room. :)

First Attempt at an Easel Card

I made this card using the Cuddle Anya Stamp from The Greeting Farm and colored it using my highly addictive Copic Markers. I love to color with these markers. I stamped and colored it on 89lb Curious Metallic Iridescent Cryogen White Paper. It is available at and it is AWESOME for coloring with copics! This was my first attempt at making an easel card and I must say it turned out pretty good. For now, this is my card style of choice. Hope you like it! :)

Perfect Pastels

This is one of the very first cards I made. It was for my substitute teacher's assistant, as my regular TA was on maternity leave. She was a big help in the classroom and we made many enjoyable memories finishing out this year in the classroom. A truly great friend.
