Love this carefree image by Mo Manning.  Put it together on a Sunday afternoon while I was feeling pretty carefree myself.   8)

I added glitter to the flowers & liquid pearls to the centers.  Wish I was stronger with the Copics now that I see the photo... I think it could use more shading.  The little white flowers I found in the wedding section at Michael's and the pink centers are from Stamping Bella.  Here's the inside:

Hope you all had a wonderful "carefree" weekend too!

Baptismal Card

I was asked by my sister in law to make her a Baptismal card. After much fussing (and even trying to channel Elly - lol)... I came up with this:

Can't believe I didn't use any ribbon - seriously must be a first for me... but it just wouldn't fit - LOL.  I kept the inside pretty simple:

The large border is a Martha Stewart punch - love it!  Picked it up at Michael's on my way home last night.  The sentiment on the front was just typed on my computer and printed, but the cross & sentiment on the inside are from Verve.

Well I'm off to give this punch another go.  Happy Weekend all!!

Our PERFECT Companions

I don't know about you but I love animals... all kinds... but the loveable household dog or cat would rank pretty high on my list.  I didn't realize how many stamps I have that are actually animals...

This sweet dog is an image from Eat Cake Graphics.  Coloured with Copics.

Paper is (once again...) MME Dilly Dally combined with a small bit of BG Max & Whiskers (yellow).  Sentiment is from an MFT set... as are all of the dies, except the Spellbinder oval.  Butterflies were made with a Martha Stewart Punch.... and I couldn't resist placing the smallest butterfly right on the tip of this guys nose.

Happy April everyone.  Hope you survived all the April Fools jokes from yesterday.........
