I Quack Me Up

I made this for my friend's husband.   We have a
history of giving each other funny gifts.   I  used a
pen to color the words so I could change the "You
crack me up to "I crack me up.!

I made this card for my friend whose birthday is just
after her husband's.   I used the new stamps sets from
the Occasions Mini Catalogue.   (Vintage Vogue and
and Well Scripted)   I really like the new clear mount
stamp sets - it is so easy to see where to stamp.  You
will be able to order these beginning Jan. 4.    I used
blue because they are my friend's favorite colors but I
think I will be trying this card with other colors.

Beautiful flowers from a Wonderful Daughter

Well, my first post in awhile had to be of these
beautiful flowers my beautiful daughter made for me for
Christmas.   Aren't they fantastic?   So much time and
skill!   They are my favorite gift. Sarah's blog is at the
right of this picture - All Inked Up.  She is a very
talented girl!

I made these cards for a friend today and I really love them only I just can't seem to take
a good picture that does it justice.   The silver cardstock and Not Quite Navy really bring
out the blues in Mary.    I have had this stamp set awhile but just getting around to using it.
I learned the water coloring technique at Club Night with Angela McKay.   I stamped the image
first with versemark and then used white embossing powder.   Then I just colored in the lines and
went over it all with the acqua painter.

I have been making cards for christmas gifts and liked this set.  
Dazzling Diamonds add such nice glitter to a card.
