Sending Smiles!

Spring is just around the corner!

It’s Wednesday, and for today’s card I used Andreas Kitties – R202 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Sending Smiles – G276 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. This cheery little girl is hoping to bring smiles to everyone she knows and hopefully put a smile on your face too. She’s already for Spring! Are you??? I know I am. LOL!

To make this card, I started out with a 6″ x 6″ card base and then mounted the background onto the card. I cut the ovals and scalloped oval using my Cuttlebug and die cut from My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies. The sentiment was cut out using My Creative Time – Ribbon End Dies.

For the main image, I used Copic markers to colour it all in. I fussy cut around the image and then traced around all of the edges using my black Copic marker. I edged around all of the borders of the die cuts with various Tim Holtz distress inks. I assembled the card using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.

To add the last finishing touch to the card, I added in some flowers along the side and a pearl in the centre for all of the yellow flowers.

Happy 30th Anniversary!

Hi There,

Last week, I celebrated my 30th Anniversary with my loving husband. For our wedding our theme was bears, so I when I saw this image from Critter Celebration (Penny Black Stamps), I fell in love with it. My husband loved his card too when I gave it to him!

I am so blessed and so lucky to have met such a kind and loving man to spend my life with. Together, we have accomplished so much together and our love continues to grow each and every day. He became my best friend when I met and he continues to be my best friend. I hope to have many, many more years ahead with him to explore the world and share our hopes and dreams with each other.
