This card was made for my sister-in-law for her birthday that is this week. The stamped image is by Magnolia (Tilda with cowberry muffin) and was colored with my copic markers. The paper is by Basic Gray. I used an oval Nestabilities set for the ovals, some lace I found at Wal-mart and some bling I got at Michael's.

Smock: Wo, W1
Shoes, Spoon, and Muffin wrapper: E50, E53, E55, E57

Lilac Girl

This is a birthday card I made for my dear friend Dani. She loves the color purple, so that was my starting point for this one. I used the Tilda with Lilacs by Magnolia Stamps and the stone wall is also by Magnolia Stamps. The paper is some I have had a long time, so I am not sure who made it. I think it may have been by Bohemia or Wild Asparagus. I colored the images with my Copic markers. The lace flower came from a roll of lace I found at Wal-mart. The large gemstone is by Recollections and the small ones are from a pack I found at Michael's.

Copic colors used for this card:
Shirt and Bow: R81, R85, R89 and added RV95 at the end
Jeans: B63, B66, B69
Lilac Flowers: V12, V15, V17
Leaves and Grass: YG 11, YG13, YG17
Tennis Shoes: RV91, RV93, RV95 and V06 for darkest
Hair: Y21, Y23, Y26, Y28
Skin: E0000, E000, E11, R02 for rosy cheeks
Stone Wall: W0, W1, W3, W5
I used a white gel pen for accents and my clear Spica pen for some bling!

Chicken Soup Anyone?

This was for my mom who has pneumonia. YIKES! Since we live in different states, I had to send her a card instead of taking care of her in person. Thought chicken soup was appropriate! These stamps are from a set by Cornish Heritage Farms. Colored with copics (didn't write the colors down this time!). The paper is from Basic Grey (I think)...

Caught a Bug?

This card was for my friend Pam who was sick. It is from a set by Cornish Heritage Farms. I just love the bug thingies! What a hoot. I am not sure where the dot paper is from. I used the Spots and Dots Cuttlebug Embossing folder and a Cuttlebug die for the slider tag. The cording was from the dollar bin at Michael's.

Copic colors used:
Tissue Box: Y11, Y23 and Y26
Purple Bug: V01, V05, V06
Green Bug: YG91, YG 95, YG 97
The "tissue" is white grosgrain ribbon.

The Winter Birthday Girl

This is a birthday card I did for my oldest niece Kaitlyn who turned 14 today! One of her favorite colors is lime green, so I thought this was a nice combo of colors for a young lady! The stamp is by Magnolia and was colored with Copic Markers. The paper is by Bohemia. I used my Nestabilities circles for the sentiment. The word stamp is from a $1 set I got at Micheal's a long time ago. The pearly brads are from Recollections.
