Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #88

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!
I got everything I wanted for Christmas and 
a wicked cold I didn't want.
My post is very short today as I am the 
biggest baby when I have a cold and I am
spending alot of time in bed watching movies.

Here is my version of the sketch..
I am pretty sure I am going to add a sympathy sentiment.
Another wonderful sketch.

We would love to see your cards so link them up here...

Here is my version..
I changed it a tiny bit...
I did use some Christmas colours for a January Birthday,
My favourite ribbon-gingham
A stamp set I found in my stash..
The sentiment is on a spellbinders circle/with butterflies.

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #85

Today's sketch was so easy to make into a card.
I have to say it again.. the cards just make themselves.

My card today is a sympathy card.
I didn't add the four corner I like my sympathy cards simple.

Pretty Paper Flowers.... Tsunami Rose

I am in love.....
with these pretty paper flowers...
I used a few different pages from Charming Fragments..
The new journal from Tsunami Rose Designs..
If you have been at my blog before you know that 
I Absolutely LOVE all of Daisy's digital papers..
I cannot tell you how much I LOVE Charming Fragments..
It's just so rich and vintage and pretty.
I got to make paper flowers with it today.
(which are another new addiction!)
Beware there are LOTS of pictures...
I used four different die sets for the flowers..
Heartfelt Creations sunflower die (3 different flowers)
and three other dies that I had.  (Two are spellinders)
I had watched a few videos on how to do paper flowers 
and these flowers have all the techniques I learned.

These three flowers are all made with my sunflower die.
The one on the right I made like a dahlia.
The bottom one the tips are pinched.
The top on is a regular sunflower.
Three totally different looks..
from ONE die...

 This is one of the spellbinders dies.
I used my Susan's Garden Tools to make these.
A must have when you are making paper flowers..
This flower I sprayed with Perfect Pearls Mist.

I added pearls to the centre of the flowers.
This one is sprayed also with Perfect Pearls Mist.


This flower is a little different.
I worked from the inside out using a hot glue gun.
I made the center then added the layers.

These two are using flowers of the same die layered 
differently and also textured differently.

Two more... layered a few different pages and dies with these two.

Here they are all together...

I have added some tags that are in the journal..
I haven't put the flowers on yet as I can't decide 
which to use where....
but I will be adding pearls and lace...

It think this flower will be going on this tag..
Wouldn't it make a beautiful gift tag for a special present.

Here are a few more tags that I am going to use..
Aren't the colours gorgeous...

Thanks for stopping by.
Come again soon..

Merry Christmas - Mojo Monday Sketch

I made this cute snowman and deer card for a friend.
She loves pink. 
Different for Christmas but I really love how it turned out.

I used Mojo Monday's Sketch 372, but I turned it sideways.

I added some Stickles on the hat and scarf.. 
and on the bell and collar of the deer.
The snowflake under the blue is a die.
I added a snowflake brad that I dipped in two colours 
of blue acrylic paint.

I am entering this card in the Mojo Monday Sketch #372

Thanks for stopping by...

TR Step Card.. Charming Fragments

Today I  am sharing a card that I made with
digital paper from Tsunami Rose.
Charming Fragments is Daisy's new journal 
with lots of beautiful papers and tons of extras!
This centre step card is one of my favourite to make.
These papers are so vintage I knew I had to add pearls and lace.
I used papers from different pages and different tags
and they all just go together perfectly.

I added pearls and lace.
I also added a metal flower and a heart.

To find these papers and many more..

My Tribute To My Mom

Today I am sharing an altered mini clipboard.
I will be adding a picture of my Mom on it and will hang it.
I used lace and pearls and more lace.

I also used stamp and die from the Sunflower Collection
I am addicted to making flowers with these.

I also used a new Prima Fairy Resin from The Craft Source!
My friend Miriam wanted me to show them off.. and here it is..

This altered clipboard was made especially so that I can add a picture of my Mom.
I haven't added one yet as I want to find the perfect pic!
It has been 10 years since she passed and I miss her everyday!
I think she would absolutely love this... so here's to you Mom!

It says
Because Somebody we love is in Heaven
there is a little bit of Heaven in our home.

I am also using this altered clipboard as a 
project that I submitted to Wild Orchid Crafts.
I just found the store in the last couple of weeks and
would love to be able to design for them.
