Happiness is time spent with a friend

Just a fun SILLY card for a challenge using coffee cups etc. for a friendship type card. Cuppas and Cards are celebrating their first anniversary. Not my usual copic coloring using shading. I just wanted dark bold funny colors for the card. Wouldn't you love to know what the gossip is about? heehee.... Thanks for stopping by.

Thank You

After just getting out of the hospital "twice" I needed plenty of thank you cards for friends and family that have been so helpful to my recovering. I used for this card a Hanglar & Stanglar image. Prima little flowers, the organza flower I made. Magnolia Tag, Twine, Ribbon by Rayher, oval Nestibilities used, My Mind's Eye PP, and Black Market Paper Society for PP. Colorbox ink for distressing tag. TFL.....

I'll be sending this card to my dear friend, Kathy. She surprised me when I was in the hospital with flowers during one of my WORSE hospital stays! she is a sweetheart and called daily to check on me too. The flowers are BEAUTIFUL. Each one is little plants all - different and made into one big basket arrangement. I loved it! Hope she will enjoy the card. She is also recovering from arm surgery. (we are both falling apart I tell her)..... heehee....
This card's image is my FIRST TRY to use Distressing Ink to color my image with. I'm a little slower than using my copics. But thought it turned out okay for a first time! And I had fun doing it. Thanks for stopping by to say hi....

Happy Birthday Kirin ---- TURNING 2

Our grandson is about to turn 2 years old! I can't even tell you how much he LOVES ELMO. I typically do not use a cricut or diecuts for scrapping/cardmaking. But in this case I needed an image of Elmo. I'm so use to coloring images with my Copics.... The green pp is just a scrap/ sorry no name for it. The orange center is an overlay by Screen Prints.... Hopefully Kirin will love his birthday card.

FOREVER YOUNG.... Happy Birthday Cynthia

This card is for a friend of mine from Texas soon celebrating her birthday. A cute Magnolia Tilda was used. My pp is my new Basic Grey paper. YUMMY! Brown satin ribbon along with twine. Nestabilities - ovals were used. Flower is from a dear friend of mine - Debby from Israel. And my sentiment is from K & Company. ColorBox Chalk ink - Chestnut Roan was used to distress/ink the edges. I double stitched with my machine in brown to make the stitching show up bolder. thanks for stopping by. Hopefully I'm finally getting back into my card making. That double hospital stay about really SET me back! Thanks for all your prayers.
