Guest Designer Special Request

I recently had a special request from a friend that was on a previous design team that we both belonged to, to participate in their wonderful blog as a guest designer.  I hadn't posted in a long time, but this was just the push I needed to get back into something I love, so here it is.

Karen Day from Inspired by All the Little Things asked me to post something that I was inspired to make from the following photo - 

For me tulips mean spring has arrived, and along with tulips the daffodils also pop up there lovely heads to welcome the new season.  Stamping Bella has a wonderful new image that was released recently entitled "Tiny Townie Garden Girl Daffodil" that I just had to color.

I colored the image with Copic sketch markers, and then cut it out with a Spellbinder die.  The edges on the die cut were inked with Tattered Rose Distress Ink and then the points were highlighted with yellow stickle glue.  The background paper is a beautiful print from Blue Fern Studios that I tore the edges of, and then inked the edges with the same Tattered Rose ink pad.  The lace, that features butterflies was purchased from a local fabric store, cream seam binding, and flowers from Wild Orchid Flowers finish off the card front.  The sentiment is an oldie from Whimsy Stamps.

Tie the Knot

Wow , it's been a long time since I posted anything, but the time has come to become more active on this blog.  I have been a busy lady the past two years - I went back to school at the ripe old age of 54 to become a Medical Office Assistant, and became a grandmother to two wonderful little boys.  I am also teaching Copic coloring classes at a local scrapbook store!  All of this has made me a very, very busy lady!  

The first card that I am showcasing is this pretty wedding card that was a special order quite a while ago.  It features a beautiful couple from Make It Crafty that I paired with a Memory Box die as the background.  Hope you like it!

I'm looking forward to showing you some of my creations from the last two years, plus new cards that I am now designing.  

Have a great day everyone!!
