CAS-ual Fridays Challenge 4

I've been checking out the CAS-ual Fridays Challenges and decided to play along for the fourth challenge on creating cards for graduates. My sweet friend Virginia is one of the DT members and I love her CAS cards. Check out her blog and the CAS-ual Fridays blog too!

Here is my card. I used a Hero Arts owl stamp, colored it with Copics and added Glossy Accents to her glasses. I also used some Basic Grey paper from the Life of the Party collection.

Have you played along with the CAS-ual Fridays challenges yet?

supplies: Hero Arts stamps, Basic Grey paper, DCWV notecard, Glossy Accents, Copic markers

I made this photo tray (from 7 Gypsies) as a gift for my niece, Grace, for her 8th grade graduation.  She was recently in the "Suessical" the musical at her school and played the Cat in the Hat. She did a wonderful job! She had 22 people (family, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends) in the audience all there for her big performance!  :)  I had to include that photo in the tray. I also included photos of Grace with her mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, family and friends. Gracie, you rock!

I used several Hero Arts stamps on this, as well as Lawn Fawn and Technique Tuesday stamps. I made ATC's and inserted them into the tray. I hope she likes it.

As always, thanks for stopping by. :)

Flower Power

Another flower card...with the BIG flower from Hero Arts.  :)  I made this card for my mother-in-law. She loves purple. I wasn't able to post last week since blogger was down for awhile.

Happy Sunday! Hope you have a great week!

Mother's Day Card!

I made this Mother's Day card for my Mom. We like to have tea together. I used the Silhouette to cut out the tea cup and then embellished with stamps, flowers, pearls and a punched butterfly. I think she'll like it. :) On the inside I stamped, "You're the Best!" 

Happy Mother's day to all you moms out there!  :)

I love Flowers....

I made this card after watching Shari's video on the Hero Arts site and decided to enter it into their monthly contest.  I love the white embossing on the darker pink paper. I just got this Flower Text stamp and it's already one of my favs!  I also used Basic Grey's Hopscotch collection for the paper piecing.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're having a great week and ready for the weekend!
