Giraffe Wishes

Sorry for taking so long to update. I've been working some serious overtime, and then when I get home, I'mm just exhausted. Couple that with some serious artist block when it comes to card ideas, and you have long times between updates. :(

 This cardbase is from Bazzill, and is called 'Lizard'. I really love the shade of this cardstock, and I've used it many times before. It's great for many different projects. The jungle themed paper was one from Hobby Lobby's Clearance bin, but I found a great alternative for it! I layered more Bazzill cardstock beneath the main image, in the shades of 'Simon' and 'Parakeet', respectively.

As for this cutie, I believe I found him on a Google search, but it's been a while, so I don't quite remember. I colored him with Prismacolor Pencils, and blended the colors with Gamesol. I love his little heart sewn on! I places some metalic pearls at each corner, and tied the entire card with a pretty sheer ribbon..and voila!

I really like the possibilities of this card...it's great for son's, husband's, Doctor's, Teacher's, etc. The list could go on and on.

Hugs and Happy Scrapping!

Live in the Sunshine

Tonight I wanted to do something a bit more simple and streamlined than my other cards.

This cardbase is once again from Bazzill, in Blush Red Medium. The black and red plaid paper was from Hobby Lobby, but I have found you a FREE alternative! You just have to print it out! The scrolling frame is an old on from  Spellbinders, so I don't think they offer it anymore. I did find one close though! I added a fun quote, a bit of ribbon, and ... VOILA!

Simple, elegant, and something anyone would love to receive! Took me a total of 30 minutes, so it's fast too!

Hugs and Happy Scrapping!

Spring In Full Swing

I know it's been a few days, but like I said in my last couple posts, there is a bunch going on right now! So I'm trying to get some cards out on the days I can. I meant to a couple nights ago, when I had some downtime from work, but it just so happened a tornado hit about a mile from where my daughter is. Needless to say, I was watching the radar like a hawk, and waiting for a phone call. Thankfully, her, her boyfriend, and my grandbunnies are ok.

Now, onto the Card!

This cardbase is from Bazzill, and since I decided to go with a color scheme that was fun and funky, I thought the cardbase should be just as fun. I found a cardstock called 'Jubilee', and I thought it was perfect! The striped paper I layered on top is an old clearance paper from JoAnn's, so I couldn't find it for sale anymore. I did find one that you could print out and use though! The other layered papers are from my scrap pile. :)

This image is a digital stamp from the Paper Shelter, and she's called 'Spring Swing'. I colored her with Prismacolor Pencils and blended the colors with Gamesol. I love her little dress and the tiny daisies! Not to mention that sweet little bird! I put some metallic pearls at the corners, and called it done! It's a great card for friends or teachers, I think.

Hugs and Happy Scrapping!
