A Scrap Wedding Card

This is another wedding card using left over embellies and paper from a commission.  The background paper by Paper Pizazz, the corners are by Sizzix, the "Love Honor Cherish" is from Me and My Big Ideas.  Misc. ribbon.  This is a 4.25 X 5.5 card.  I have almost talked myself to committ only to using scraps for an entire year and see if I can do it.  The only deviation will be a commission card.  I will let you know when I decide.  Have a great weekend. Hugs

Black and White Wedding

This is short and sweet.  I wanted to use some of the embellishments left over from my other Wedding Card.  Yesterday while looking for some baby paper I saw this Heidi Grace paper on sale WOW .59cents a sheet.  The butterflies are MS and the paper and butterfly centers have glitter but photo did not pick it up.  The photo corners only visible on the bottom are EK Success.  MS butterflies were stamped with my tiny flower background stamp.  Hugs

Grad Eagle

Well this little darlin was a pill from the get go, but it is done.  The eagle is from "Stand n Salute", the bling is by Recollections.  Photo corners are EKSuccess.  Grad Hat is from "A Child's Day" and "2011" is a QK font. And there you have it!  The recipient is a cheerleader and loves bling and leopard prints.  Hope all is well in blog land. Hugs

The Frog

So this gave me serious giggles yesterday.  First I would like to say that who ever is marketing director for JoAnn's is part genius.  Check out is set up as a long line of bins with lower priced items and candy, so as you are waiting you are looking and then you look again and then before you get to checkout you are $5.00 lighter cause you found several things that peeked your interest.  That is the way of this frog, I wish I had taken a before picture but to be perfect honest I did not think it would work.  The frog is balsam wood and the eyes, etc. were pre-drawn to him.  So I took my Copic markers (beware it is a little rough on the tips) and went to work.  I thought it would bleed horribly but it did not.  It comes in 2 pieces, the frog and the bottom stabilizer. Who would have thunk?  Now for the rest of the story.  This is for my sister, she is under a lot of stress right now and I have been teaching her a tip I perfected in my 40/40 which is being the observer and not getting involved in all the stuff around you.  So I wanted to send her something that would remind her frequently of it.  Speaking of giggles did you know that Jesus and Holy Spirit have a sense of humor?  They do, I asked them to help me with a verse that would make her smile, yet remind her.  So the card says, "If you get down in the trenches with them - you are going to get dirty."
This is the back of the frog and the card says, "But if you observe, you stay clean and are Blessed with Peace. The clouds and coloring on the card were also done with the Copic markers. Hope everyone has a great week. Hugs

Added the misc. bow with corsage pin.  Photo corners by EKSuccess and background lavender is Bazzill.  We are having a rip roaring rainy day and there is snow in the Sierras, hope your day is filled with Blessings.

Another Grad Card

Okay, what in the world do you do with orange and green, lol.  This is a fun sassy grad card.  Carts used "Shall we Dance".  Font is from QK and the confetti is from a Sizzix Die.  Gold accents.  I touched the color up some it is more orange than yellow, but then you could not really see the gold accents.  Have a great weekend. Hugs
