Gracie's first grooming

Today was my little girl's first time at the groomer. She looks so grown up--but she doesn't act it. She is still my little baby, full of fun and quite a comedian! Her front feet look really small. We have had a LOT of rain and the fur on her feet was wet from being outside.

Looks like another milestone for her scrapbook! Hope I can get some time this summer to catch up on the pages!

May card swap time

This is my finished card for the May swap. The theme is sympathy, but this would work for a few different themes. The background cardstock is a nice off white--not quite into a brown tone color. The "Y" is cut from the Cricut Botanicals cartridge. The rest of the sentiment is printed from MS Publisher -- font is Annabel Script.

The stamp is from SU, and I dotted the flowers on the middle one with a darker color green to make it stand out more. I think I would like to try this one in lavendar, but I need to get more paper to do that! lol

Easter Card -- #4

This is the final of the Easter cards, and my personal favorite. My cricut was quite busy with this one! The tree is cut from Zooballoo. The eggs, bunnies, and grass are all from the Easter cartridge.

All the eggs were cut from white cardstock and individually decorated. The eggs were added using pop dots for some dimension. The card base is plain white with blue and green added by gently rubbing Colorbox pigment ink pads to get the shadowing and color intensity that I wanted.

I think these sweet little bunnies are so happy with their little decorated tree, don't you?

Easter Card -- #3

This card base was cut with my Cricut. I used my gypsy and welded two egg shapes from the Easter cartridge that was released in 2010. I used some Stardust stickles around the edge to give it some bling.

The bunny was also cut from the Easter cartridge, and the background shape is from the Picturesque cartridge. The bunny was cut from white paper and colored brown with a Bic Marks ALot marker.

Easter Card -- #2

Here is card number 2. The bunnies are also cut from the Slice "Spring" design card and glittered in the same way as the peep. The tag shapes were also cut from a Slice design card, but I just can't remember which one! Doesn't it just figure?

My dear friend just "loved" getting all these special Easter cards! Well, who wouldn't? LOL

Easter Card

I have a dear friend that I love to torment with holiday cards. She knows who she is! LOL Anyway, the marshmallow peep is a cut from the Slice "Spring" design card. I ran it thru the Xyron and sprinkled yellow glitter on it to make it look like the sugar coated peeps. The paper is from the DCWV nursery stack (boy), and the purple plaid is punched with an EK Success border punch. The corner dots are glittery dimensional stickers from Target.

Mother's Day

I just finished the Mother's Day card I am sending to my mom. It needs to go in the mail tomorrow! I used a Penny Black slapstick stamp "Flower Girl" for the image. I colored it using a combination of Prisma watercolor pencils and Bic Marks ALot markers. It is edged with a Martha Stewart PATP punch set. The background is embossed with the Cuttlebug folder that comes with the gratitude or thanks card combo. I thought its flowers looked similar to the sunflower the little girl is holding. I also used a red ribbon and bow at the top. Can you believe it? No die cuts were used on this card! I hope mom likes it!
