Under Water Fun

I decided to have a little bit of fun with a couple of the new releases from Cute As A Button.  These are Ocean Snorkeling Boy and Ocean Snorkeling Girl.  I decided to crop the turtle and use it a few times on this card.  I wanted to use more than one image and I wanted to make it look like they were snorkeling together.  After getting it all put where I wanted I framed it.  After cutting it all out I colored the image using chalk, ink and gel pen then covered parts using Glossy Accents.  I added flowers, curly stamen, and gems.  I also added some lace and some ribbon (the bow).

Funny 60th Birthday

One of my co-workers is turning 60!!  We are having a potluck at work to celebrate.  I decided, because I actually like her, that I'd make her a very special and very fitting (for her personality) card...funny!  I grabbed an image from Bugaboo...love this chick!  I went with an idea I found on Pintrest, and added to it.

I used my fun squiggly lined paper crimper, used some Kraft paper for the base, punched out the sentiment, added gems and then did the 'toilet paper' roll.  I also added a hemp twine bow.

Healing your wounds

This is my inspirational card made for Cute As A Button.  I have a friend who is almost done with nursing school who is starting a new job soon.  I thought I'd make her this card using Nurse Genevieve-Asian.  I added a bunch of gems, a nurse button and a ribbon.  The image was colored using chalk and ink.

God Is Love

This week over at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge theme is "Anything Goes".  We have two sponsors Sasayaki Glitter and DigiStamp Atelier  I played with an image from Sasayaki Glitter.  I used mostly scraps to make this...the blue strip is a scrap, the flower and the ribbon were all scraps.  The sentiment is a sticker.
