Great paper

I do love a great know one that holds it's own on a card...This is one of those papers! I will post a card tomorrow as well that is just perfect the way it is as well!! TGIF....We had my sister in laws dad's funeral this morning. It is hard to go to a funeral of someone that you never met before I always feel like I am invading or awkward...But it is worth it if my sis in law feels the support she needs. Sigh....makes you think though...about how happy you are to have the ones you love around...Thanks for looking!

Father in law....

It was my Mother in law and Father in laws is his card... no it is not a crazy card and it is not a wonderfully embellished card but it is him to a tee....yes ...I totally meant to say that!!! Ok....

Kathy's boys!!

With 4 grandchildren who are boys Kathy chose these stamps the last time we ordered and I think these would be perfect for any of them!! I do love the simplicity of this first card.

Finally I got it! Sunday Specials...

I have been struggling with a card for my 12 year old daughter...I got it....finally! I needed to make it fun and girly but at the same time a bit older than what I have done for her before! I used a lot of different techniques and textures I think it will be worth the wait for my "big girl". We are going to start showing some more detailed cards...Maybe a bit fancier and using a few new and old techniques. I will also try to include the copic colors, glitter, punches etc...that were used on the card. I will post these cards on Sundays...the rest of the week for now will be our regular but totally wonderful, spectacular, gorgeous and total fabulous cards!! Thanks for looking, hope you have a great week!
For this card I used the Priceless stamp set from SU
Martha Stewart glitter...tourmaline and peridot
Copic markers...RV02, RV04, RV29
All papers are SU
Cuttlebug Dots folder

This little girls is like my girls...

They can do the splits! My girls are right back into dance and as sore as they are this week the first thing they said was...I can still do the splits! Funny right..I think my body would have gone into shock...I have gone back to the gym as well and I am sooo sore... and I can't now or ever have been able to do the splits!!! It is not a goal but getting my butt to the yoga place is...I do have to work my way into it...It would be nice if I had a friend to do it with...but alas Michelle goes to a different gym and I watch the boys when she goes a couple days a week and I wouldn't miss that for a yoga class!!

this cutie and her sparkling shoes!

my mother in law...

Every time I make a "shoe" card I think about my Mother in Law...She loves shoes....I think she has a billion might think I am kidding...but no! I knew when I bought this set it would be her favorite set I have. I like it as well, and I just love making cards out of them. Here are a few of my newest shoe cards to add to her collection. Aren't they Marvelous???!!! I hope you are having a great day and are wearing a great pair of shoes!

a little fisherman!

How totally adorable is this little guy! This is the card Michelle made for our Dad....He kinda looks like this with all his fishing gear on...Hee Hee...As usual Michelle adds in the little details to make this card extra special. The brads in the corners to the versamark fishies in the background paper....I hope you can see the bits of glitter pen around this fisherman! I think it is fisherman dust...maybe it brings the fish to the man!! We want to wish everyone a Happy New Year....Thanks for stopping by!
