Well It has been a day full of ups and downs for me. I found the need to escape to a Happy place. I found my self sitting in my craft room colouring away. I made 4 cards today.

Here is one:

I love this House Mouse image - Jelly Bean Heist.
There is more embellishments than I usually use but I still like it! I has a clear acetate base so it looks like it is floating when open on display.

Items Used:
*Cardstock: X-Press Blending Card Stock; Basic Pink CS from Michaels

*Patterned Paper - Close to My Heart
*Images: House Mouse - Jelly Bean Heist
*Flowers; Spellbinders Heartfelt Creations - Posy patch Dies
*Ink: Tsukineko Memento - Tuxedo Black
*Embellishments: Pearls from Dollarama

I will try and add more later

Sunshine and Smiles

It has been an interesting couple of weeks at the Myers house! My son fractured a growth plate in his ankle and is in a cast. I am on a leave from school. So let's just say I have seen my fair share of doctor's waiting rooms this week! . . . anyway. . .

I had a pleasant surprise this week when I went to the mail box and found a stamp order that I completely forgot I ordered!!!! I got some great images from 'Lili of the Valley'. I have fallen in love with these stamps so be forewarned.

This is what I created today! hope you like it.

Here's what I used:
  • Images - Lili of the Valley
  • Patterned Paper - Heidi Grace Designs
  • Ribbon - May Arts
  • Cardstock from Michael's (butterfly wing collection)
  • Ink - Memento- tuxedo black; Brilliance- Orchid; Copics
  • Tools - Spellbinders nestabilities

With love and Inky hugs
