Sympathy card

I made this sympathy card for my mom to give to one of her friends.  I used Studio G card base, Bazzill cardstock (pink) and two stamp sets from Sweet and Sassy Stamps.  I colored the image with copic markers. 

Call Me!

I made this card with a stamp set from Stephanie Bernard's Stamps of Life and patterned paper "switchboard" by Pink Paislee.

Happy Mother's Day

I made two Mother's Day cards this year, both utilizing the Silhouette cutting machine. 

card one: 
this is the card I made with my Daughter's card class.  I have found when gluing very delicate pieces of paper like the darker outline on this rose, it's best to use a spray adhesive.  Using a Xyron sticker maker works, but then you wind up with the little bits of glue in the small places that are hard to remove.  This way it's much cleaner. 
Card two: 
This card was also cut with the Silhouette.  I adhered it onto white cardstock, then used copic markers to color in the images.

Lawn Fawn Love 'n Breakfast

I absolutely love Lawn Fawn stamps!  The sweet little smiles, the charming little sayings, they get me every time.  

Like Peanut Butter and Jelly

When I first saw this stamp set I thought, "What in the world will I do with this?"  But I have warmed up to it, and once I started using it I thought it was very cute.  I made this card for my husband who was having a rough time at work.  I snuck it into his car and later in the day sent him a text to look for it.  Doesn't matter how long you have been married, your sweetie still likes to get a little love note from time to time!
