Flowers and Mafia...


My DS, was recently invited to attend a dance (not prom) with one of his grade school friends. Just 14 yrs old and over 6 feet tall...isn't he handsome??? His date wore an emerald green dress. The roses were actually beautiful in person...ivory with pink. My Mom and I made the wristlet and boutonniere...that was an experience. Let's just say, I'll be ready for the next dance. I had most of the supplies on hand, just needed the wristlet thingy. Found that at Michael's for $2.99! Saved a bundle of cash by creating them ourselves. We teased DS he looked like he belonged in the Mafia. Black shirt, shoes, sox, jacket and pants.
He is only 22.5% Italian ;o) Unfortunately, I had my camera on the wrong setting and the only pic I took of the 2 of them came out so blurry.

Gamsol and Glitter...

For the flowers, I colored them with light blue and purple colored pencils. Magic Pencil technique using Gamsol made a more dramatic effect than colored pencil alone. I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to give it some "pop". It's so much prettier IRL

Sick of Winter...

Yesterday, the temp. soared to 70 degrees in Delaware! I'm so ready for Spring...aren't you? When I created this card, I wasn't sure if I should add a little bit of green leaves, but didn't. I love that tiny bird pirched on the branch.

All my favorites...

I love 3 x 6" cards...watercoloring, organdy ribbon, flowers and the colors pink and green used together. The bee stamped in matching green ink adds just a little whimsy to this card. No greeting needed, in my opinion. ;o) I think it's beautiful, as is. I leave the greetings for the inside of the card, so my eye isn't distracted by words on my little work of art ;)

24/7 Bird...


Not sure which version of the card I like the best. Everything is the same, except the background image is stamped in 2 different colors of ink. Oh and the branch and leaves on the bottom card were colored with colored pencil. Which one gets your vote?

Totally CASE'd and simplified...

I CASE'd this card and simplified for my Sr. Center Class. Thank you Jill, for the inspiration! I have to keep the cards simple and easy for a large group to complete in 2 hours. And the greetings are kept to a minimum. "Thinking of you" is my personal favorite greetings for a card. This leaves me the option to use for birthday, get well, sympathy and more. I prepare 4 cards for the group. I have 24 ladies that could potentially attend my class. The attendance is usually around 16 ladies. Whew!
