Thinking of You!

Ok ,I know it its a miracle, especially posting twice in less than a week...but I am on a roll right now.  I go on Pinterest and see tons of beautiful cards and drool and almost get overwhelmed after a while.  Now, I am having tons of card ideas bombarding my sleep, and as you know, that is where my best cards come from.  That half asleep state, is where my cards are created, and if I don't come down and make them right away, I forget what it was.  Kinda like a dream, if you don't write it down or tell someone right away, it is quickly forgotten.  Well, these cards have been in the works for a few days along with a bunch of other half done cards...I am sure that I am the only one with that problem! 

Well, these cards are the same but opposites in colors!  Plus, I have found this really unique stamping technique that is called, Spotlight stamping!  Really cool!  I thought I would give it a try, and I liked it so much that I ended up making two.  I don't know which card I like minute I like the pink and the next I like the blue one...Oh well!

I used:
Gypsy Wanderings Cartridge for the green scroll like leaves behind the flowers
Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacy Squares
Core' Dinations cardstock for card base and also the lacy squares
Me & My BIG Ideas specialty cardstock
DCWV The Linen Closet Stack (I LOVE this paper!)
Grafix Vellum paper for the flowers
Stampin' Up (purchased years ago at a yard sale)
Stickles:  Cotton Candy and blue
Ribbon and Lace from my stash
Rhinestones from my stash

Thank You so much for stopping by and checking out what I have been doing!  Have a wonderful day!

Turning 13 You Are!

Well, I now officially have two teenage children in my home!  Isn't that wonderful!  We celebrated his birthday a few days early, with family and friends.  I think he had a great time.  For whatever reason my camera did not like me at all that day.  So most of the pictures are a little blurry.  Very frusterating...RRRR! 
Anyways, lets talk about his card.  Did you know that you can get tons of free printable coloring pages, and put them on a document into a text box and make them the size that you need it to be....  That is what all the images are on this card, just simple free printable coloring pages!  So cool!  I don't know of anyone that makes stamps or digi stamps of "Star Wars" characters, at all.   Well, as you can see I improvised, so that he could have "Yoda" on his card. 
He later came and told me that, "This was the coolest card I have made!" 
I would say he loved it, and was very happy with it!

I used:
Green Pre-made Card
Making Memories Wedding Paper Pad
Cuttlebug Polka Dot Folder
Google search for free printable coloring images for both Yoda, and the Light Sabers
Green Ribbon from Michael's
Copic Markers & Water Color Pencils
Crystal Effects from Stampin' Up on the Light Sabers
White stamp pad to highlight the dry embossing

My 13 year old son!  Happy Birthday, Nathan!

Well, thank you so much for stopping in, and enjoy the wonderful spring days!
