Rose Card

Colored the image with the Copic Sketch markers, took my oval stencil and drew an oval around my flower image, leave a few of the leaves hanging over the oval.  use the corner round to round the edges of the card.  Also use one of my fancy border punches.

Purple, pink, flowers and butterfly

On Saturday, (05/28) I spent the day at the local scrapbook store (Scrappin Friendzee - Marrero- Louisiana) with some awesome ladies. I spent most of that time coloring images for cardmaking.  On Sunday (05/29) I spent the 1st half of my day working on 12 greeting cards that is part of a gift for someone.  This is the 2nd card of the day. The picture does not show it but the butterfly image was popped dotted off the card.  The Thank you sentiment is something I picked up from Michael's a few years back.  I use to love going to check out the $1.00 dollar to see what neat little rubber stamps that I could buy.

father day cards

I love the little boy image and it was fun to color.  I have always enjoyed coloring as a child, as a mother with my boys, and now as a friend with my special little friend, Bailey.

Father day cards for the soldier card drive

This go around I did not make as many cards as I would have liked. I made 30 cards. All the images were colored using the copic sketch markers.  The more I use them the more I enjoy them, love how I am able to shade, but still has a long way to go.

flowers and butterflies

I was working on my cards for my card swapper group for the swap in July and had some left over flowers and butterflies and I decided to make 3 cards using the leftover materials.  All the images were colored using the copic makers, and the center of the yellow flower has flower soft.  I really like the top card best.

tole painting coca cola bottles

Back in 1989 my sisters, and I used to paint on wood cut outs at one time all of us had our own saws.  This is coke bottles that I painted and had hanging in my kitchen for a long time, then they were taking down and store away until the other day when I was doing some digging.

Mardi Gras 2 page layout

TAC is having a 2 page layout swap.  Everyone that is participating makes as many 2 page layouts as they want.  I choose to do 4 - 2 page layouts.  This is my Mardi Gras theme.  I found the jester, and musical horm images on the internet copied them to a word document adjusted to the size I wanted.  I colored both pieces with my copic sketch markers.  I used 3 different circle punches to make the beads at the bottom of the page.  I inked the edges of the large green beads, but used may copic makers to highlight the smaller beads.

Tea Cup Thank you card

Happen to run across the template for a tea cup shape card while I was blog hopping.  It was a perfect card to see to one of my friends that I had to thank.  She is a collector of tea cups.
