I am trying to catch up with my blog posts before Christmas gets here, lol.  I made this card for a special friend who has got me through some rough times.  She has already received the card and loved it.



The Floral butterfly (Deep Red Cling Stamps) was stamped with white embossing powder.  The background was created using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. The sentiment Friend and Dragonflies are chipboard.  They were dipped in VersaMark.  The dragonflies were covered with WOW embossing powder, Bodacious blue glitter.  The friend chipboard was covered with WOW embossing powder, White Twinkle glitter.  Papers used: Neenah 80# and 100#, Neenah Creative Collection Metallic Chalice Silver.  Corners of papers were clipped with a Crop-A-Dile Chomper in Deco.  Also used Glossy accents to make the dragonflies trail and added blue sequins from my stash.  And last but not least I applied Delicata Silver Ink on the blue background edges.


Thank you for stopping by and would love to read your comment.

Thank You For Nurses




The medical clinic I go to have such wonderful nurses that take such good care of me.  I call them my angels.  I usually send them cards a couple times throughout the year.  I made this card to show them my appreciation for all they do for me.



Nurse Digital Image – Paper Shelter digital Images (  Image was colored using Stabilo Chalk Pastel Coloring Pencils.

Hint: when using chalk pencils you need to set the chalk or else it will smear or come off.  I use hair spray to set the chalk.

Thank You Sentiment – Friendly Phrases Stamp by Stampendous.

The tiny band Aids are also digital stamps (Nurse’s Medical Equipment bought from Etsy).

Cardstock – Used two shades of Kraft paper (my stash)

Border – on card front was created using Cross Stitched Frame Borders by Memory box.

Stash – Sequins, Seed beads, Spectrum Noir Sparkle Clear Brush Pen.


BTW – All the nurses loved the card.


Happy Halloween!

Thank You




I created several cards since August but I haven’t had the chance to post them to the Blog. I am beginning to post today one of the first cards I created.

Today I am starting with a Thank You Card I created for a lovely friend who has been sending me such beautiful creations that she has sewn.  I created this card to thank her.   It is nothing compared to everything she has done for me but its at least my way of telling my friend how much I appreciate her.

And what a talented seamstress she is!  Here is her blog link if you would like to see her creations:  (This is the most current post). There is so much more to see of her many talents besides sewing by checking the archives.



o Stamp - Mondo Magnolia by Ellen Hutson

o Thank You Sentiment - Papertrey Ink, Wonderful words: thank you die

o Distress Watercolor Cardstock by Tim Holtz (for card front).

o Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens

o Spectrum Noir Sparkle Clear Overlay (dabbed lightly on flower petals)

o Sequins – Pretty Pink Posh, gold and pink and added seed beads to the sequins.

o Card Base - Neenah Solar White (100#)

I stamped the image in VersaMark and then embossed the edges of the flower with Ranger Super Fine Detailed Gold and heat set using my heat tool.

I water colored the Magnolia using  water color paper.  The water color medium used was Zig Clean Color Brush pens in Pinks and Purple.  The white highlights on the flower were created using a Signo Uni-Ball broad pen in white pigment ink.  The Thank You sentiment was covered with VersaMark and dipped in the gold embossing powder and using my heat tool to set the embossing the powder.

The background behind the flower was done using the Zig Brush Pens in a light shade of grey and adding water to thin out the color away from the image.

The card base edges were rubbed with VersaMark and applied the Gold Embossing powder and heat set it with the heat tool.  This gave a nice edge for the base card and pulled all the gold embossing detail together.


Thank you for stopping by and would love your comments.  If you have any questions about how I created the card feel free to contact me.
