Floral For You

I was looking to make a quick and easy card today and this one fell right into place.  I love how this set is separated so I do not have to color each element independently.

To do the center flower I stamped it in the ink pad and off once on paper.  Then I used the marker to color in a few of the circles to make them more bold.

Paper: River Rock, Color Collection DSP-Regals, Whisper White
Ink: Garden Green, Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant, Summer Starfruit, Tempting Turquoise, Early Espresso

I have a few friends that are great blessings in my life and when I made this card I thought of how thankful I am that God put them in my life, whether they be near or far away.

The flowers were sprayed with a Champagne Mist Shimmer paint mixed with rubbing alcohol, to give it a nice subtle sparkle.

He will Sustain Thee

So I am trying to stock up my On-Line card store with various occasions of cards.  It seems like there are so many people I know that are going through some very tough times right now.  The best comfort I know of is to lean on God.  So there is no better way to comfort someone than with His words.

I stamped the image in the Early Espresso and used a wet q-tip to clean off the birds.  I then colored them with a marker to get them the color I wanted.  I figured blue birds were a good fit.


Stamps: Serene Silhouettes, Blessings from Heaven 
Paper: Pool Party, Early Espresso, Whisper White, More Mustard Color Collection DSP-Regals
Ink: Early Espresso, Island Indigo

Sparkle Butterfly

This is the last of the "old" cards that I have had saved in drafts.  I do not have information on it but I wanted to share it anyways.  As I said, things got a bit overwhelming in my household and my good intentions of having posts lined up for when I was off to doctor appointments did not go as planned.  I know some of these sets will already be on my retired list or no longer available.  I hope you can get some inspiration from them for a color, layout  or just something you can use to create a card you can share.    ;-) 

I have a new order coming in tomorrow and will start designing my Christmas cards.  I hope now that school has started again and we are back to a somewhat normal schedule that I will be able to spend some time in my work space and get some projects posted once again.

I hope you have all had a WONDERFUL summer!!
