Gallery Idol 2012 is wrapping up!!!!

HURRY and get those cards in ladies!!!!!  This is my second, hoping to make 5 total for the Paper Crafts Connection "Gallery Idol 2012" competition.  The theme this time around is Encouragement cards.  I am kind of limited on my encouragement sentiments, so I found a font I liked and printed it onto cardstock straight from the computer!  It kind of got a bit faded after embossing with my Texture Boutique machine, but I think it should be ok. ( I hope!)  The toile paper is from Glitz Designs "Pretty In Pink" collection, the gray patterned tape on the bottom is from Pink Paislee, and the lovely canvas flower is from the incomparable Maya Road.

Have a great day...we're having some pretty nice weather here in Michigan.  Hope you are too!  TFL

A Scrapbook Page!!!

Hi friends!  I have been making cards for so long, I thought I forgot how to make a scrapbook layout!  I found out yesterday that I *can* still make them!  For what seems like a year, I've sat down with the intention of making a LO, and my mind just absolutely blanks!  For this page though, I forced myself to work through it, and it really helped that I used the sketch for this week from the Sketch Inspiration site.

So here's the page.

The pictures are of my sister's Great Dane, Zeus, and her niece (my daughter) Emily sharing a sweet smooch :) It really is true what they say about Danes, they are gentle giants!!

And here's Sketch 318:

Thanks so much for stopping by & I hope your day is filled with scrappy alone time ;)

A Lawn Fawn Card - Sending Love Your Way

Hi friends!  I wanted to share with you a cute card I made with my absolute favorite stamps in the world - LAWN FAWN!!!!!  The adorable postcard and sentiment are from the new "You've Got Mail" set, and the critters are from "Critters In the Snow" set.  It's hard to see on camera, but the trees and critters are pop dotted for extra dimension.  The Bear was colored with 2 shades of brown Copics (I really could use a class in coloring, I'm horrible at shading), and the penguin was stamped on black cardstock with Frost White ink by Colorbox, and his beak was paper pieced.  I have the hardest time trying to color him, think I'll check out the Lawn Fawn gallery for ideas :) Anyway, thank you for stopping by today and hope you have a great week!
