Summer Bug

Another sweet Whimsy and Stars Studio Summertime image.  The whole Mimi Bug line is so irresistible.  They are all so sweet and versatile.  I did something a little different on this card.  I stamped alot of random flowers on the background and added glossy accents to the centers giving them some shine.  Glossy accent were added to Mimi's wings.  I love Mimi Bug in her pink and purple girly :) 

TGIF to You!

Vase of Love

Delightful Inspiration
Challenge - Orange and Pink
Host - Peggy 

I am loving this darling vase of flowers and hearts. I like to think of it as a vase of love. This is the Freebie Friday image for the monthly progressive challenge at Delightful Inspiration. You can still get the image here and join in the fun. I am also, doing the Delightful Inspiration's Saturday Challenge, which happen to be a color challenge this week. Orange and the combo! I added pink pearls to the center of the flowers and used some Summer Song DP by My Mind's Eye. The tiny sentiment is from SU!'s Cute Converse set. Hopefully this bright and cheery card will brighten up someone special's day.

A day full of love from me to you!

Welcome Little One

Another sweet, new image from Whimsy and Stars Studio...

Sweet, sweet, sweet....I am loving this little sweet pea and just by changing the colors, you can make it for a boy or a girl.  This was a quick and easy image to color.  I make a frame with my die cuts and used some DP from The Guy Stack by DCWV.  The sentiment is from an older SU! set, Rivets. 

Stay tuned for more of the new Summertime images by Whimsy and Stars Studio.  Mabelle is the best!

I will be in St. Louis visiting my new grandson all week.  Will have lots of photos when I return.  I am preposting and hopefully everything will go as scheduled with Blogger.

Goin' Buggy

Theme: Goin' Buggy (Use a bug image, bonus use your Cricut or Cuttlebug)
DT Host : Kris Breach

I went a little "buggy" with my card today.  I used the "Ladybug Balancing Act" from D2D and used my Cuttlebug to emboss the yellow card stock and die cut my image.  I added a little orange felt button to the center of the flower.  The DP in from the Black & White collection by Making Memories.  The image was colored up with Copics, Glossy Accents added to the ladybug dots and I sponged ink around the edge of the image with the die cut still in place.  The sentiment is from the Cute Converse set by SU! 

So grateful for all my friends...real and online.  Your comments always make me smile :)

Come and play along with us at Delightful Inspirations and show us how you go "buggy".

Feel Better Soon

Another adorable image from Whimsy & Stars Studio.   Wouldn't it be great to cure any illness with a really big band-aid?  When my children were little, a band-aid was a cure-all whether it was a real or "pretend" ouchie...LOL.  The DP is from Peebles Treehouse and the sentiment stamp is from Hampton Arts. 

I have so many colored images that need to be made into a card or something creative and this happens to be one of them.  I think, I am on a roll this week, getting all those images made into cards, finally!

A great image to have on hand when someone you know is a little under the weather.

Tropical Father's Day

Delightful Inspirations Saturday Challenge Reminder

The Tropical Christmas set comes with 3 different images, 2 tropical Christmas images and the one I used today.  It relaxes me just looking at this card.  If it's going to be this hot...high 90's, I want to be on a beautiful beach somewhere relaxing and feeling the ocean breeze.  I used some embossed paper from The Guy Stack by DCWV.  Keeping the card on the masculine side, I just added some layered buttons. 

You still have a few days left to play along with us.
