Happy Birthday Cynthia

A fun happy birthday card for a friend with an upcoming February birthday.  She shares her birthday with my grandson, Kirin.  I colored Tilda with Copics and then shaded some with Prismacolor pencils.  Prima flowers were used.  TPC Studio pp was used called Mediterranean Summer line - Teal Geo Circles.
I used a little calendar page on this one, highlighting with chalks the date of her birthday.  Border punch is my Martha Stewart.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

 Entered into:        LOVE THEME               VALENTINES/LOVE      VALENTINE

I have two cards for  VALENTINES today.  I saw a card and now not sure where similar to these.  And thought it was adorable. So decided to do a LIFT and make some FAST Valentine cards.  I love having a splash of color.  The first card --- I made the paper flower!  :=)
The papers are from my scrapbin so not sure on brands.  Sentiment is computer generated.  Fun cards!

My Copic Storage


I lucked out one day when a local LSS was shutting down for the last day.  They had these holders for sale.  I thought wow I could put Copics in them.  I paid $3 for each one.  So far they've worked out great.  I have empty room still left up top.  So for now it works great for me.

Well, 2 Valentine cards made now and I still have a few more weeks to finish the others up.  This is a precious little Tilda and the hearts on her makes her a GREAT Valentine image to use.  I used not your typical Valentine colors for this one.  The pp background is by Bo-Bunny Press called Winter Whisper Mist.  My dotted paper is by Basic Grey from their Lemonade line called Strawberry Patch.
The sentiment stamp is a $1 stamp that is old from Michaels.  The cute little hearts at the top was by American Girl.  I love picking up little embellishments off this aisle at Michaels.  I removed the smalled 2 hearts and cut more in the RED/PINK colors to match the card better.  Grosgrain Ribbon is by the Ribbon Boutique.  It is a SOFT grosgrain and easy to tie and makes a pretty bow.  The cute little border is by a MS punch.  Flowers are from Prima.
Thanks so much for stopping by.  Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.  Gosh Monday is going to be coming around WAY TOO FAST!
hugs to you all....

Entering this card into :              All you need is love               With Love                         LETTER "P" -  PINK 

This card is a romantic Tilda!  For the first time I TRIED paper piecing my image.  I was told at Hobby Lobby that I could use E6000 Adhesive between the layers to achieve this look. WRONG..   After it had dried on it's own, the image had just melted down into the bottom layer!  whine....  I was hoping it would have gave it a little lift.  I think some use a Silicon, but I am not sure what one or where to buy.
I will have to research some more.  The sentiment came from Michael's $1 bin.  This was the last of this paper I have hoarded for about 5 years!  It is gorgeous.  I'm not even sure who the paper company is anymore.  And this is the last of this pretty ribbon.  Chipboard is by K &Company.  Flowers are by Prima.  
Thanks for stopping by.  Love  your visits!

 Entering Card into these challenges:

Just Magnolia Week 89 challenge:

WOW.... Orange and Green for inspiration colors..... Hummmmm  I would of never typically chosen those colors by choice, but the challenge was fun to make me let them work for this card.   Also it gave me a chance to color up this cute little Tilda for St. Patty's day!  PP is by Recollections called "FAR OUT"   LOL  I found the beautiful ribbon at Michaels this week on sale.  My sentiment stamp was also from Michael's $1 bin I think last year.  The Shamrock is by Recollections as well.  Flowers are all from my stash.  Image was colored in Copics and then shadowed a little with Prismacolor pencils.  I used Crystal Effects by SU over all the Shamrocks in Tilda's arms.  The vintage gem pin is by Making Memories.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

January Mingle for Kathy Skipper

I chose to make a Valentine Tilda card for my January Mingle card to be sent to Kathy.  I colored my images with Copics and then shadowed with Prismacolor pencils.  Nestabilities were used to die cut the hearts and the pendant.  Pearls were added for an embellishment.  Sheer ribbon was tied to the front of the card and a cute heart/flower/button/charm was added as well.  The card was cut in half and removed on the front so it would swing open and also show the beautiful pp by Bo Bunny called "A Gift of Love".  For the inside of the card  I used a nestabilities label and added a sentiment inside accented with two more little pearls. Sentiment was by Stampabilities. 

Thanks girls for stopping by.... Always love your comments and visits!
