Birthday blooms

Another adorable animal image from Conie Fong, which I've colored with prismas and added stickles to some of the flowers to glitz them up a bit.   Kept the design flat and simple, for ease of mailing.

Birthday greetings

Here's another of Conie Fong's adorable bears that I've colored up for a birthday card.   I put faux stitching around my image, a lacy doily behind, and added flowers with swiss dot brad centers and scrolled foliage die cuts behind for a feminine look.   My birthday sentiment has also been done with a die cut.

Mmmmm, the best !!

Nothing much beats the cool, refreshing taste of a ripe watermelon on a hot day, and this adorable penguin of Crissy Armstrong's from Whimsy stamps is proof of that!   I found I had the perfect coordinating background paper for this in my stash.   I've colored with prismas/gamsol, and added a computer-generated sentiment.  Thanks for coming in to enjoy this happy penguin.

Writing you a little note

This bear is from the QKR Stampede store, and I've colored him with prismas/gamsol.   I found a cardstock scrap in my stash with pencils on it, so it worked perfectly with this.   The shiny silver corners are candi-dots, mounted with foam.

Couldn't be happier . . .

This little miss comes from the Digi Doodle Studio and appears to be abounding with joy - and look at her cute little furry friend at her feet!
I've colored her with prismas/gamsol, and added stardust stickles to her flowers.   I've tucked a couple lacy doilies behind, then topped my card with a spring bow/ribbon.   My foliage is a corner die cut, with flowers and pearl centers added, along with a couple butterflies for a "garden" touch.

Lavender dreams

Every now and then, I tend to dust off one of my favorite wood-mount stamps, and this cutie from HouseMouse counts.  I used colored pencils, and added stickles to the magenta blossoms.  There's some lace along the bottom with a strip of ribbon across the center.   I used a scrolled foliage die cut behind my added flowers, with large pearl brads for the centers.  Some layered doilies and a couple butterflies complete my card creation.
Thanks so much for coming in to view.

Lovely rose

This circular rose comes from the Bugaboo store, which I colored with prismas and added stickles for a bit of sparkle.   I used my new "love you" die cut from Dare 2 Be Artzy, that I purchased at a stamp/scrapbook convention this past Thursday and love the look of it.    A heart-shaped doily behind my image, and this card is ready for donation to Bring Smiles to Seniors.
