Feminine Butterfly Card

Well, hip hip hooray, our power came back on today! Almost a full week later. There are some very happy people in my neighborhood! It's amazing how much we take having light, refrigeration and electronic entertainment for granted. I think my family has had more conversations during this past week than we have had in a very long time. Although I am excited to have the power back it is said to see everyone retreat back to their separate corners..including me.
I made this card for my daughter for her 14th birthday. I cropped this picture from one on my computer while away on vacation. This card involved lots of layers and her favorite color...purple. It is artsy and unique like my girl Zoƫ. She absolutely loved it. It involved lots of stamping and spritzing. Not my usual style but I thought it would be hers. I will update the picture once I find a better image.

Oh Baby Boy Card - Sweet Lil' One

I seem to be stuck in a boy mode. Our neighbor had a cute little baby boy and so I just had to make a welcome card. I thought of all the fun elements that catch my eye on the cards I like and I came up with this little ditty.
I love the look of burlap ribbon accompanied by the round doily. It creates an artsy feel. The gold button just adds a nice extra touch! I hope you like it.  The stamp set I used is no longer available but here is a cute one you can use instead.  It's called Cute Lil' One

Celebrating 21 with Style!

Is the power on at your house? Ours has been out for over 5 days and counting! Not fun. We finally decided to find refuge somewhere else while we wait it out. I decided to find the silver lining and share this shiny fun card. This was for our son's 21st birthday.
I wanted to create something fun and sophisticated yet cool for a boy. This card was easy to create. I used used my stars framelits dies on silver glimmer paper and the decorative dots textured embossing folder on the the shiny silver. With a few layers the card was done.
