Happy Birthday Honey!!!

Today is my hubby's 55th birthday. I whipped up two cards for him, one from me and one from "my" dog. I have a miniture pincher that is often referred to as "the red dog". Hubby isn't particularly fond of my dog so I thought something unconventional would work.

I colored the dogs card with Prisma pencils and used some orderless mineral spirits for blending. For my card I used markers and a bit of a sparkly glitter pen. I worked together the image from 3 different stamp sets. The hat is a Studio G stamp, the heart balloon is from an Angel Company set called Artsy Owls and the guy is also from TAC and the set is called Little Friends.

Happy birthday honey, hope you have a wonderful day!

Thanks Sue!

Have I ever mentioned how wonderful my sister is? I just returned home from a vacation spent with my family in Michigan. Whenever I'm in Michigan my scrappin' sister, Sue, always jam packs a scrapping agenda for me and this visit was no different.

I was able to go to the Great American Scrapbook Convention compliments of sis. This is the first time I've been to such an event and it was like a toddlers Christmas for me! We spent hours looking and shopping. Sue also took me to Archiver's, Live Laugh Love and Scrap and Scrapbook Emporium, I mean truly what more could I ask for. She always treats me like a princess.

I wanted to do something for her to show her how special she is to me. I put together this canvas layout that I wanted to share with you. The pictures I used are from this past visit. I'm excited to send it to her. I wish everyone could be blessed with a sister like mine!

Happy Mother's Day!

Okay, I'm a little late in posting. I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. This is a little gift I made for my mother-in-law. The colors actually do not show up well in the photo. I purchased this kit for Valentines day and never made it up so I decided to use it for Mother's Day and it worked out well. The paper is pink and red with just a hint of orange and yellow. I used the orange as my accent color to pull the project away from the Valentine's theme. I filled the box (which is from the bare naked line) with pink and orange colored Hershey kisses. My MIL loved it and that was what was most important ;-)
