July 25 inspiration card

Inspiration card for July 25.
Well it's been a few days since I have posted anything on my blog, I was kinda wist away by my husband unexpectedly.....a couple of times.
 I finished my parents 50th wedding anniversary celebration party, it went very well. Turned out closer to a wedding than an anniversary but it was wonderful. They enjoyed themselves a lot. When that was finished I was home for like a day then we went away to relatives for a couple days to the lake. Then unexpectedly came home and gone again the next day to visit my sister-in-laws at her new place in southern British Columbia. We took a day away for our 25th wedding anniversary, stayed at a beautiful little hotel, went out for a wonderful supper, walked on the boardwalk, had a glass of wine on the marina. It was truly a wonderful way to spend an anniversary with a man that is the love of my life and my soul mate. 

Well now that I have given you the low down on my last couple of weeks I'll get to the card that I just finished. This is a wonderful image from Whimsy Stamps called Megan school girl created by designer Scrappers Delight. Such a cute image and fun to create with, although school does not start here for a little better than a month.

 The sentiment  is a new package that I found while I was gone the other day from Just Rite.
supplies: copic markers, Bazzill cardstock, Spellbinder Twenty-two, Just Rite - large fancy sentiments, miscellaneous flowers, Offray ribbon, Bo Bunny gems, Martha Stewart branch punch.

July 14 inspiration card muffin

Hello welcome back to my blog.
sorry my post this last week is a little late, so I'll just have to post another card this week to help make up for my crazy schedule. Hope your doing well and that I can inspire you to post a card or create today.
I made this super cute cute card using a digital image from Whimsy stamps called Muffin from designer Lia Stampz. I colored this image using copic markers and used a new spellbinder for the little dollies on the edge of the card. I never did anything way over the top but I sure love the way this card turned out. Sometimes simplicity can speak volumes. I hope you have a fabulous day full of wonderful and happy things. I added a few strips of this really great ribbon I came across then put a line of pearls in between.The little dies are from spellbinders and are called Medallion seven.

So here is my card for this week.

A bit of a closer look at this adorable colored image.

Thank you for stopping by
I hope you have a wonderful day!

My card for the blog hop

This is my card for the Digital release using an image called hummingbird from designer Dana's Digi's. I wanted to try an new technique with this card. I always use foam squares to give my cards a 3 D look. So I tried doing a 3D paper piecing card. I didn't get as in depth as I could have but, I wanted to try it on an easy level. I only did a few layers but it is alot of work and cutting. The effect was so wonderful, the photo doesn't really justify it. But I had fun doing it.

A closer look at the paper piecing of the flower.
Supplies: Copic markers, Digital image and Treasured moment tickets from Whimsy Stamps, Kaiser patterned paper, Bazzill cardstock, Decorative Labels Eight from Spellbinders, Kaiser craft pearls, foam squares.

Thank you for stopping by
Enjoy the hop.
