Happy Birthday Jean!

Hi Everybody!!
Hope you had a great weekend!
I wanted to share with you today a card I made for my dear Aunt Jean.

I used some pretty digital papers. The blue dots and yellow paper are paper from Samantha Walker's CottonTail collection. The turquoise leaves are from Carina Gardner's Primrose Garden papers.  The pink paper with the scalloped edges and the fun multi-colored paper comes from Adrienne Looman's Beautiful Chic digital papers.

Happy Birthday Barb!
Hope you had a great Birthday!
I wanted to share the card I made for my best friend.
I used a gorgeous All Dressed Up Stamp for my card.



I kept the sketch simple to focus on the stamp.
I used 2 patterned papers, some glitter paper, and some solid papers.
I added some pretty flowers and pearls.
I also added a cute little heart charm on a ribbon.
I also added glitter on my butterflies, and on some of the flowers.

Saturated Canary Fashionista #2

My second Saturated Canary Fashion Decades girl I used was from the 50's.
I used her for my other side of my project box.

I used some great old fashioned looking papers and a great new die.
I used some really pretty flowers from Michelle Roo's Grunge collection.
I added a bluebird brad and an old fashioned looking key.
I added some pretty frosted pearls for the center of the flowers.
Love these new Saturated Canary images!!

Saturated Canary Fashionista #1

If you haven't seen the new Fashion Decades images from
Saturated Canary, then you really need to check them out.
They are Awesome!
I had a desk/project box that I had bought at a second hand store that
I had just been waiting for the perfect stamps to put in the frames.
I can now sit this box on my desk and fill it with markers, stamps, tools,
and just all kinds of goodies.
For the first one, I used the 40's images.

I used some digital red and white striped paper, some white glittered paper,
and some blue paper with white stars.
I was feeling very patriotic when I made this.
I also added some flowers, crystals, and Freedom charm.
I really love this image.

Lady Liberty

Hope everyone had a fabulous 4th of July here in America!
We spent a great day with family.
I did get to do a little crafting though.
I used a cute stamp from Simply Betty called New York Betty.
I added some really great paper from Carina Gardner Americana paper.
I added some white glittered stars and a red glittered 4
I used my Tim Holtz distresser to go around the edges of the tag and stars.
I also did a little grunge work with the "Freedom" sentiment.
I used my gold glittered pen to add a little sparkle to the flame and to
give the impression of lights in Lady Liberty's crown.
I added some frontage and glitter for a little fireworks look behind her crown.
Lady Liberty is definitely an inspiration and a reminder of our freedom.
