Birthday smiles

This adorable image comes from Sylvia Zet of Whimsy, and I've colored her up with prismas.  I've added a doily for a lacy effect, along with flowers, butterflies, pearls, and the sentiment, along with the pretty flowered background paper.  Thanks so much for coming in to view/comment on my creation.

Birthday tulips

This adorable bear image comes from Conie Fong, and of course, it was irresistible to me, since I love cuddly, cute teddy bears, and this one is no exception.   Look at that pretty array of spring tulips, which we do seem to be seeing in blossom around here now -- or, at least for those that have a green thumb!   I put faux stitching around the image, and some enamel dots.   A couple layered doilies, a felt cupcake and pretty background papers make this birthday card complete.

Springtime smiles

This image comes from My Besties shop and is perfect for the spring planting season.  I've tucked a couple doilies behind my flower array, added a section of die cut fence, a couple butterflies with pearls and then candi-dots at the upper corners.  I've used some plaid and then some flowery cardstock for my background.

Spring breezes

I was tickled to be a previous winner on the Elisabeth Bell's World challenge, and part of the prize is the honor of being a guest designer, so here's my card creation, using the current theme of "butterflies".  I've used a number of die cuts for my embellishments, along with flowers and gems, and embossed the pink background die.  Hope you get a chance to enter -- it's an easy-peasy theme, and you could be a winner yourself.   Good luck !!

Beep beep

Now that spring has arrived, you'll be seeing more bikes, motorcycles, and scooters on the road.  This adorable scooter miss comes from Tiddly Inks and she is on her way, sight-seeing!  I've colored with prismas, added faux stitching, the circle framing around her are die cuts, as are the sun and clouds that I've put foam behind to pop them up for dimension.   The blacktop road is washi tape -- isn't it just perfect for this road trip creation?   Oh, and if you look close, you'll see my background paper has pink scooters on it, which is perfect - and, I worked hard at not covering it all up with embellishments this time around.

Spring planting

Spring has arrived . . . getting close to buying those plants and seeds to add to your gardens, like this cute gal from My Besties.  I've colored her with prismas, and added glitter to her flowers.  The flowers I've added have white brad centers, with punched/die cut foliage.   A lacy doily is tucked behind the image and a couple die cut butterflies added, with pearls glued on their bodies, and also the bottom corner of my image.  And, I used a spring flowered background as my starting point -- happy and cheery!

Butterfly wonder

This sweet little boy comes from Magnolia - and I can see where I'd be as enthralled as he seems to be, should a butterfly land on the flower I'm holding - how awesome is that.  I've framed the image by using die cuts, and the corners and hearts were done with punches.  Since it's a boy card, I've kept embellishments to a minimum.
Thanks for coming in to view my creation.
