High Hopes for Bev

So this was a card I made for my Friend Bev ..who also happens to be the Pastor's Wife ..Also she is my biggest fan I think hahaha ..She is always so thoughtful and loving I wanted her card to be special as she is ..She is always running around tyring to make sure everyone is taken care of Always thinking of others ..So That's where I got Gods Lil Helper and the Unconditional Love she sure has that ..So what better image to use as a High Hopes image drawn by another someone who Loves Loves Loves the Lord ...So combined the two and its a Great thing ..
I made a T-slide card and found them kinda hard to
 decorate as it moves so you cant mess that up .but I  did alright I guess ..
So i used 3 images from High Hopes By Crissy Armstrong and two the rocks, sun and cup from I'm not sure hahaha..I colored with My Copics and the swirls I had cut from along time ago and never used them , there from glitter paper , I cut the swirls to meet my needs ..
All in All it made me smile and I think she liked it ..

So here is the Up close part , don't look to close hahaha

So this is the inside ..i did a T-slide card or should I say I had Hubby make the T-slide part hahaha

Thanks for stopping by

Asian Journal With a Twist of Color

So here is a Journal I Got commissioned to do a few months back ..It was for an Asian type theme with the Blue and Green Colors ..Asian is not my thing ..but I did better than I thought I would ..This is a Hardbound Journal that is about 8 X 10 1/2" and Again like i said in a couple postings below I got the idea for the screens from Mary Gizma and then here I used chipboard for the tree and made the flowers from White wool I have , This time Putting a flower in her hair ..Colored with Copics ..I found a site on the web that shows how to make the Kimono and so I made one and it was too big so I put on the inside back cover and made a smaller one to fit the front..I gathered the ribbon on the binding and added flowers.
I them bought the B for her name at Hobby Lobby and Stamp the rest of her name on it and covered that with Stickles so it would shimmer like the B..
On the inside I added a Pocket and made a Fan added doilies to it and braided the string from Embroidery Thread ..Haven't Braided anything since I was little and that was AGES a few day ago ...hahaha
Again I gathered ribbon around the pocket and added flowers to go with the front ..
I think it came out great and I made it for a lady who gave it to her Daughter for Christmas ..They BOTH were very pleased and that in turn makes me happy think something I MAKE can make someones day is a true treasure

Thanks for Coming By
