With Sympathy to Barb

We are so saddened by the loss of our friend and neighbor, Don.  We will all miss him!



The card is created with a beautiful corner set from some clear stamps that I do NOT know who the manufacturer was.  The project is white pigment ink on black with Prismacolor pencils and white Posca pen (or gel pen) accents. The stamps are from SU set Love and Sympathy. A handwritten personal note to Barb is to the right of the Rosetti embossed sentiment.

Thank you to a special Friend


This special thank you card was created with an ADORABLE graphic that can be found in Trina Clark Walker's brand-new Graphics Design Store....Bizzy Hands Creations   Her work can also be purchased from  her "older" store  Digi Scrap Kits.   I've finished this card with a red embossed mat by Taylored Expressions called Conversation Hearts, and die cut thanks by Avery Elle dieset "Sentimental"

Special Valentines

Here are some Valentines for special people that I have been working on. For these I have used several different dies---So Detailed, Love Notes by  SU, Sizzix Hearts # 65751, and a Marianne Creatables # LRO236 die.  Stickers from Pop Ups Etc are on several of the cards. Papers and Glimmer Paper are from SU. Graphic of the girl with a heart balloon is by MiRan.  The "love" paper folder is misplaced, and I cannot credit the designer.







This card below is created with SU Stacked with Love  DP, and Dies from Love Notes and Label Card diesets.





Mi Ran's January 2017 Progressive

This pretty Miss in her bower of flowers is my entry for the January 2017 Mi Ran's Progressive Challenge  She is colored with Prismacolor Pencils, and mounted on a die cut from Mod Circles.  It is mounted on sky blue paper. The rings in the graphic and on the diecut are edged with Clear Star gel pen.

Loving Thank you

I had SO much fun making this thank you card for my sister...thanking her for special gifts and special times in our recent visit.  I used SU designer paper and "Love Notes" dies on a white base with real red accents. The beautiful thank you stamp is a  Gina K,designs stamp from "Fram and Flowers2" collection.  Inside each little envelope is a small picture of one of her gifts.  Sequins, red and white baker's twine and punched foil contact paper finish the card.
