Birthday Card

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter holiday. I finally found a little time to do some card making, but then again I had no choice cause today is my SIL's birthday and I had to make her a card. I decided to use a sketch from the Bearly Mine Challenge blog. Had some trouble coming up with how to decorate it and I do think its a little plain. The rose image comes from a stamp that I borrowed from a friend and I used Copics B00, B02 and B05 to color it. 
The ribbon comes from the Crop Stop Store and the Butterfly border punch I used is Fiskars. I decided to use my new butterfly EK Success layering punch as I was inspired by the butterfly on Brenda's blog banner. She is having an amazing giveaway over on her blog and I just had to enter. You must check it out, so head on over to her blog Floral Fantasies

Easter Card

It’s been way too long since I posted my last card. I've been very busy in the past month and a half making baptism card for friends. I had to make about 130 or so; so I haven't taken any time to post anything. I finally found time to make some Easter cards that a friend ordered and although they are my usual style I still like how they turned out. This one here happens to be my favorite. I love the colors and the design is a favorite of all the ones I have.

I'm Back...

Its been a while since I've posted a card on my blog. I spent 9 days visiting my mom and catching up on some sewing and just got back Friday night. My kids got the flu while we were there and I'm so glad that its finally over. All they did while they had it was sleep and want to be held. 
I made a card before I left and I want to show it to you all now. I absolutely love how it turned out. Its my first ever all white card and although it was a bit of a challenge I loved making it. The flowers come from Jacque over at Jacque's Joie de Vivre. She sent me the most beautiful flowers and I'm so looking forward to trying them all. The embossing folder I used is a Spellbinder M-Bossabilities folder called Garden Delight. I won the lace in a blog candy but I'm not sure where and the ribbon comes from the Walmart. The 'Congratulations' stamp comes from a Simon Says Stamp Card Kit called "You can do anything."
