4th Faerie

I seem to be having this thing going with faeries this week. Here is yet another one that I finished tonight. This stamp is from Stamps Happen, called Flower Faeries. I have been eyeing this stamp for quite some time, found it on clearance and just had to get it. This image took almost 4 hours to color, but well worth the time.

Image is done with prismacolor markers. Paper is unknown.
Hope you enjoy this one as much as I do.

Flower & Butterfly

I just bought this stamp the other day and wanted to give it a try. It was stamped with Memento Ink and colored with prismamarkers. The paper is unknown to me. Brads are ones that I have had for some time. This is a totally different type of card for me, but love how it has turned out.

Hope you enjoy this card.

House Mouse Watermelon

Another House Mouse that hadn't seen ink yet. This one was just screaming to be inked and perfect for this time of year. Love how this one turned out. Hope this makes you want to go out and cut the fresh watermelon for tonight's BBQ also. I know I will be.
Paper is from American Craft.
Thanks for looking.

An Early Halloween Card

I had this set of House Mouse acrylic stamps that I bought at Christmas time and had never inked them. I was anxious to give them a try. So here is one that I made the other night.

Paper is from DCWV. The shapes are from my nestability collection.

3rd Faerie

Here is the 3rd Faerire from the set that I bought from Inkadinkado. Had a teacher comment at school the other day about this card. She told me I had used our school colors for her. Hadn't really thought about it when I first made her, but she is our school colors, green and yellow. Once again I have used Basic Grey paper on this card.


Here is a card I made for our MCE or Monthly Card Exchange on one of the Yahoo groups that I belong to. It is a fun little challenge each month, so months we have a theme and other months we get to make whatever we want. This month was to make something with a lily and the color emerald green. Well, I didn't find any lilies in my collection of stamps, so we could then use any flower. But I also used a green in my card so that helped.
Used the Delight In Life set from Stampin' Up. Hubby made the bow for me with a bowmaker that I found on Ebay.

Thanks for looking and I'll be sharing several more today that I haven't been able to get on here in the last few days.

Another Faerie

Been playing with the faerie stamps again. This is a great set by Inkadinkado. So many possiblities. This little girl is stamped on Georgia Pacific cardstock with memento tuxedo black ink. Paper is from Basic Grey. Coloring medium is my ever present prismamarkers. The faerie and mat are cut with the nestabilities deckle rectangle, a new toy for me.

Hope you enjoy this little girl.

Get Well

I had this image sitting here ready for a card. I colored it some time back and just hadn't done anything with it. Decided to put it to a card tonight. Very simple, but since my mind is not all here, figured this would work just fine.
Supplies included Stampin' Up paper, Basic Grey paper, prismamarkers and large brads.

Thanks for coming to visit.

House Mouse Birthday

Another card made. I must be on a roll. I have done more cards in the last 2 nights than in the last month. Woohoo!!!! Maybe I am back on track, at least until a house is found and we start moving. But I will gladly give up my crafting for a short bit for us to get our own place.
Once again, my favorite little guys House Mouse, using an unknown background paper, prima flowers with mini white brads. An unknown ribbon and my ever faithful prismamarkers.
This is actually for a friend that has a birthday coming up in the very near future.

Thanks for looking and until next time, I hope you are as blessed as I have been lately.

Mother's Day

I have not gotten to spend any time with my stamps and ink lately. I was really starting to have withdrawals. But was able to remedy that last night with this simple little card. I found the flowers at our LSS they are the Mulberry Street by Petaloo. I love these flowers, I have to go back over there tomorrow and hope to pick up another color or two. Thought these were really cute.

Anyway, not much to tell on this card. The image is a Fluffles that was RAKed to me. The flowers by Petaloo and the Sentiment from Stampin' Up. Paper is Stampin' UP and American Craft.

Thanks for looking and I'll see if I can't post a little more often.
