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

This will be a quick post .This was a card I made for a Girl at church that I believe turned 18 and so I made it with ALOT of sparkle ..The swirls are out of Glitter paper ..I used flowers and sparkled those up with Glamor mist spray ..Stamped my ticket and colored my Elisabeth Bell image with copics ..I so love this card .

So here is the inside of the POP Up card ...I did a cupcake with little sparkle rhinestones for candy and the sign was stamped ..Not sure who made the stamp ..

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

So this card was for a Girl at our Church Named Chloe and she turned I believe 16 ..I heard she loved this cartoon Namie or something ..and was told this would fit in .. I made the Soji Screen following Mary Giemza Directions .. and then made some Cherry blossoms out of white wool and added a Pearl in them and made tree branch out of heavy card stock ..butterfly's punch from Martha Stewart and Colored with Copics ..She LOVED IT!!! it made me feel so good and she gave me a Handwritten , That's right I said a Handwritten THANK YOU note in perfect Penmanship ..Now days you dont see that at all ..At least not me .. SHe made my day . Not the other way around ..
