You have my heart

This cutie-patootie penguin is by Crissy Armstrong from Whimsy Stamps, which I've colored with prisma pencils, added punched hearts, and computer-generated the verse.   The mesh behind my image is drywall tape, and then heart ribbon centered on top.  The open mesh hearts are a die cut, and then I added 3-D hearts atop.    A couple layered doilies finished my embellishment array.  Thanks so much for coming in to view my card.

Sweetest treat of all

Ah, which is sweeter -- honey, or having a really good friend !!    These cute bears are from StampingBella, which I've colored with prisma pencils.  I've added a couple bee brads, die cut foliage, flowers, a bow at the top corner and cute honeycomb background paper -- sorry, I covered up a lot of it -- teehee.   Hope your day is as sweet as can be, whether it's spending time with a friend or having a sweet treat.

Ice cream delight

It's just not summer until the treat businesses open, offering ice cream, floats, frozen yogurt, smoothies, etc.   Magnolia Tilda here has made her mind up to enjoy a double scoop sugar cone.  I've colored her with prisma pencils/gamsol, and then cut her out and mounted on foam for a dimensional effect.   I see I didn't totally cover up my cute cool treats background paper.  The ice cream booth also is a Magnolia image.   Thanks for coming in to view, and hope you can indulge yourself in a sweet frozen treat today!

Thinking of you

This little cutie is a Polka Dot Pal from the Little Miss Muffet shop.   She's been colored with prismas, framed with oval layers and the other embellishments just took over from there.   The foliage border (behind the flowers) is a die cut, ribbon added along the bottom, the shamrock is a button with the shank cut off, and then a couple butterflies and the bow tops it off.

Watering the flowers

This Magnolia Tilda has the hose out, all ready to water the flowers, although she may also be thinking of playing in it, to cool off in the summer heat !!  The upper corners are dotted swiss candi-dots.  Thanks for coming in to view my card creation, and happy summer to you.

Surrounded by poppies

I love this image from Ching-Chou Kuik, as I think poppies are a magnificent flower, even though I've found I have absolutely no luck in growing them.   I've colored with prismas and added stardust stickles to her wings.   That's a strip of lace along the bottom, with black ribbon centered atop the lace.  A bit more of a lacy effect by layering a couple doilies behind my image, adding the "love" die cut, and then a couple added butterflies completes my creation.
