I really love this card that I made for a friend whose father died. However, I am not happy with the photo...also, my computer is really messing up...and I hate it, but I think I am in for a new one. The photo is blurry...must get Photos for Dummies...cause this is not working. If you click on it, maybe you can see it IRL...
I used Spellbinders Labels 4 and Oval Nestablilities. The sentiment is computer generated. Retired SU DP, MS Butterfly Punch, baby pearls, and Ivory May Arts Ribbon.
I am sorry that this is so short, but my weekend has been quite busy and I have not had the time to do this right. Starting tomorrow, I am back at work and this being the last week of the month, I have too much to do.
I did receive some wonderful blog candy from Sabrina (I will post her blog next visit when I show you what I won). She is a great artist and cannot wait for you to see what I won!!
Have a wonderful week everyone!

I made a couple of these graduation cards for my friend Debbie at work, who had two of her cousins that were graduating. I used white cardstock and the paper background came from Hobby Lobby. I used my Lables Four from Spellbinders Dies and the Cuttle Bug Swiss Dots Folder. The graduation cap charm came from Hobby Lobby. The sheer black ribbon from Flourishes and the gem from my stash (which means I do not know where I got it). The sentiment was computer generated. The smallest Labels Four is done on sparkly paper. Click to see.
Yesterday was a really fun day for me. My sister and I went grocery shopping together, which we do every weekend. Then we went to Lowe's and she bought a door knob and I bought another embellishment tool box. Actually, I think it is really for nails, screws, etc. There are nine drawers and they are the perfect size to hold all of my Flower Soft jars, Embossing Powders and rubber stamps. I get so excited when I come across another way of organizing my "stuff." I have a feeling that most of us in this craft love to organize. When my studio gets really a mess after not having time to clean, that is the one room I really love cleaning, cause I am also organizing. I dunno, could be OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder)...LOL...I have been told that it runs in my family.
Then my sister and I spent at least 2 hours in Books-A-Million. I could live in that book store and so could she. After that, we went out to eat a scrumptious meal. We always have such a great time together. I am blessed to have her in my life. (If you see this Annie, you owe me for putting you up on a cloud!)
Here is a wish that you all have a great week ahead! Thank you for stopping by!

This card was made using an image called "Seasonal Scenes." It came from Kristin's Artful Inkables. I stamped the image with Momento Tuxedo Black. For some reason I really like the way this ink takes to water color paper, which by the way came from Flourishes. This paper is THE VERY BEST water color paper that I have ever used! So check it out peeps. I colored with my Copic Ciao Markers and then very gently put the Flower Soft Glue, which I bought from Joan. After having run my fingers through the Flower Soft I sprinkled it over the glued areas and shook the rest back in my container. And TA-DA!! I used Pure Pomegranate from SU and the blue is from SU's Soft Sky. The ribbon is also Pure Pomegranate and the rhinestones are from stash.
Here is a closer picture of the Flower Soft...and if you "click" on either picture, you can see more of the deets!
Thanks guys for taking the time to check out my fun "happy" stuff...Wishing you all the very best of weeks!!
