Happy Thanksgiving !!!

I am really looking forward to this afternoon, as my family and I are all getting together for this wonderful holiday. This card was made with a couple of Me & Carrie Lou Pumpkin Stamps. I used cardstock from SU. Versamark ink and Gold Embossing Powder on the Pumpkins and the saying, which came from Flourishes Many Sentiments. I colored with my Copic Ciao Markers. The ribbon is from A.C. Moore and the Gold Dots are from a stash I had from last year. The leaf is also from A.C. Moore. I used some gold dots in the middle of the flower from Michaels, Martha Stewart's branch punch, and Mega Nestabilities Curved Rectangle. To finish it, I used Robin's Nest Pebbles in the corners.

Here is a close up of the pumpkins...

I wish you all a Very Happy Thanksgiving !!! Be Safe and thanks for your visit!

Thank You from Flourishes

I know that I have been posting only once a week lately, but I have a lot going on right now. As you can see it is midnight and the only reason I am posting now, is because my precious 'Piper' had to go outside. I would be a good time to post...and now when I look at this picture, I wonder..."did ya ever think about what the background would look like here?" LOL...guess not :)

Here is another version of the Flourishes Thank You set. I used VersaMark ink and embossed with Gold Embossing powder and a heat gun.

Then background is the all famous Cuttlebug folder with square Nesties in gold paper. The ribbon came from A.C. Moore and then I used the Pretties Kit from SU and placed a pearl in the center of the flower. Simple, but very nice I think.
Wishing you all a great 'rest of the week.' Thanks for stopping by :)

Flourishes Poppy Patch

Today is Veteran's Day and I know all of you are praying for our troops...What bravery they must have and I am so proud of all that they are doing for our country!

This card is made with Flourishes Poppy Patch stamps. Also, Flourishes Many Sentiments (Thank You). The cardstock is SU's Green Galore...DP paper is from Once Upon A Time and SU's Groovy Guava DP Series. I colored with my Copic Markers and Copic Glitter Pens. I wish the glitter would have shown up in these pictures, because that is what makes this card so beautiful in person. Alas, I really need to take some photography classes...but when? Working full time and family makes it hard to find the time. One day...I also used by Cuttlebug Rectangle Folders and a white singo pen and one Swarovsky Crystal for the middle of the Poppy Flower.

Gotta run...Dentist today....ugh! Have a great week all :)

Thank You Set from Flourishes

This is the Thank You Set from Flourishes.
I love this let because it is so versatile...You can use it for almost any occasion...including Birthdays and Sympathy cards...I used miscellaneous paper from Hobby Lobby. The Oval Nestabilities around the image. I colored the image with my Copic Markers and used Liquid Pearls around the oval. The bow also came from Flourishes and I topped it off with a Robin's Nest Pebble.

I wish you could see the Copic Glitter Marker that I used around the edges of the flower...It is so much prettier in person. I will say click on it to get the deets, sometimes it works, and sometimes it does not work.
