Happy Birthday to Mikey!

I am back with a Stampscapes card. It has been awhile and this is a technique that definitely needs practice. However, not to bad. Can you believe that there is 7 different stamps used in the making of this scene? I don't know why it looks like there is a blank area on the right, maybe because of the silver paper right next to it? I am pretty sure it is colored right up to the edge! Yep it is. I had to go and check this on a bigger picture! This card is for my daughter Simone's fiance. He is a real great guy!!! 

Happy Birthday


This card is for my cousin Cyndi in Ontario! I just love these Sylvia Zet images. The wide eyed wonder she gets in their eyes never ceases to amaze me! I colored her skin with the Spectrum Noir pens, the rest of the coloring is done with Copic pens. The paper is Basic Grey, can you believe I remember what it is!!! The word and peace sign are cut out on the silhouette. I added some of the Spica Pens on the flower and leaves at the left side. Hope she likes it!

Feel better

Our list mom on C.S.T. asked whoever was able, to send a card to a lady that had been in a motorcycle accident over a month ago, in Saskatchewan. She has just been moved to a rehabilitation place. I am hoping that this will be ok and will give her a smile. The stamp is one from Kraftin' Kimmee, always thought it was kind of cute. Colored this one with a combination of Copics and Spectrum Noirs. Used a Martha Stewart Punch for the border on the mustard color paper. Hopefully she will be restored to normal.

Finally, the baby card!


And it's ready to send! My goodness why it took me so long is anyone's guess. Oh well better late than never I hope! The image is a stamp from Belle's and Whistle's. The wings and all other things were cut out with my silhouette. Colored this one with Spectrum Noirs. I really prefer their skin tones over copics. Oh ya, wash my mouth out with soap! This new little baby's name is Vencia Carolene. And  is in her grandmother's words is the most beautiful baby ever born! LOL And I assured her that my grandaughter had that spot taken!!! Grammies are so funny! Incidentally this is the only person I know that has the same birthday as me! Anyhow.....hope you like it! The card I mean really why would you care that she was born on my birthday!!!
