GFS: Mystery Monday: CASE of SANDRA

Here's the card I made trying to CASE the card that Sandra made. This turned out better than the picture shows because the roses really do match her hair...waz up w/ my bad photography? I used the Hallo Bride Digi stamp...isn't she cute?!! I stamped the candelabra on a transparency and surrounded it with Glimmer Misted Prima roses, then added a smoke colored pin. All in all, it turned out great.

After looking at pictures of the Bubbles card I wanted to re-do it because it didn't turn out the way that I originally imagined it...I really wanted patterned paper for the tub and black lace around the circle. After playing with the black lace I found it was too bulky so I gathered the ribbon and ran a stich through it, then Glimmer Misted a couple of flowers and used a cute heart jewel.

Here's the re-do, and guess what? I heard back from GFS and am getting a stamp for it! WooHoo...YAY for re-dos!

My Bubbles....or yours?!!

This is a card I'm going to send to The Greeting Farm which is running a card-for-stamp-drive, just click here to see what it's all about. I am driven to "win" something...not sure why, but I am going to keep submitting cards until I win a stamp....LOL, but so true!

With that said, here's the cute Anya from the Me Time set which is geared towards a spa day, but I thought it would also make an adorable anniversary card....don't you just love the sentiment?!! I embossed hearts, Glossy Accented the bubbles, and the pearls are made with Viva's Paper Pens....seriously, you need to try them if you haven't yet.

Thanks for looking and if you have any suggestions, please let me know...like I said, I really want to "win" a stamp!

50 and Fabulous!

Here's a mini I did for a good friend who turned 50 a couple of weeks ago...she didn't want a party, all she wanted to do was go to Vegas...to gamble a little, and have a few martini's. She kept us all updated through FB what a FABULOUS time she was having. Lucky me...I printed all the pictures off and put them in her mini, just a little bit sneaky on my part. Happy Birthday Karen!

Check out how fabulous the Viva Paper Pen pearl drops look....if you don't have them yet, they are a must!

I didn't realize the last image was fuzzy, but it's too late to retake another pix because I gave it to Karen yesterday, she loves it! I couldn't ask for a better friend!

It's been a while....

...since I've posted, almost 3 months. We went to South Carolina at the end of July, I started a new job in the middle of August, the kids went back to school at the end of August, September was filled with birthdays...yada, yada, yada...I have been busy and it's all been in a very good way. Did I mention I also had my first paying project that was due a couple of weeks ago? Yep, I finally made a few dollars for doing what I love.

Today is my dd's 16th birthday, she loves both Anime and the Chinese culture...and I love The Greeting Farm stamps, making Geisha Anya the perfect stamp for a card for her. I think everything goes together really well and I hope she likes it...we're giving her her card and present after dinner tonight. I colored the image with Copics and am in the process of learning how to use them, but I think I need a few more of these little pretties...just so I can practice a little more **wink, wink** !!

Thanks for stopping by, I promise it won't be so long before my next post.
