On my way . . .

This pair from Lili of the Valley seem to be the perfect team - who better to play/spend time with then man's (or, boy's in this case) best friend, and he seems to be keeping up well, too.   The upper corners are from a punch, and other than layering, just colored my image with prismas and added some faux stitching around it.   Just a simply cute boy's card, with not too many embellishments.

Sunny flowers

Sunflowers seem to be such happy flowers, and if you ever see a field of them growing, it's a sight to see, and it never fails to bring a smile to my face!   I've colored this sweet image from Di's Digi Designs, did some layering, but didn't want to cover up my coordinating background paper TOO much, so just added a couple candi-dots to the bottom corner, and attached a sentiment with foam tape for a 3-D look.  I've added stickles to my flowers, although the glitz doesn't show up very well.  Thanks for coming in to view my creation.

Furry best friends

This image comes from Lily of the Valley, and it's a sure bet that she LOVES her pets!  I've colored with prismas, and added some little grey hearts, plus the die cut heart border along the bottom.   The upper corners are also a die cut  (one of my favorites).   A doily tucked behind my image for an even more feminine look, and along with the background paper layering, voila, it's complete.

Dandelion puffs

This little miss from CC Designs has found the perfect dandelion to blow, spreading magical seeds wherever they may go - don't you remember doing this as a youngster?  Ah, the memories.   I used a die cut for my filigree corners, and the foliage is also from a die cut.  I've layered flowers and attached a gem for its center, and also layered a couple doilies behind my image, as well as laying a strip of ribbon along the bottom.   Of course, can't forget a bit of glitz to the dandelion.

Basket of posies

This is a cute bear stamp from Darcie's . . . I've colored with prismas, die cut the oval frame around, and attached the flowers with brad centers.   The strips behind my image are two different washi tape designs -- they're so handy to attach to cards, and not as thick as ribbon.

Picked specially for you

Isn't this Magnolia Tilda one of the cuter ones?   I really like this design and it was fun to color her up with my prismas.   I tried to match my flowers up with the background paper I chose, and attached them with brad centers.  Some pearls added at the top and bottom corners, along with ribbon and a tied bow.   And, since I'm a sucker for butterflies, I've attached a couple of those to finish off this scene.  Thanks for coming in to view!

Hang in, hang on . . .

I bought this stamp as an unmounted at one of the many conventions I've gone to, but failed to mark down the company name, so can't tell you who makes it, sorry.   I used a partial portion of a die cut picket fence, as well as a die cut for my foliage.   The brown circles at the top edges are candi-dots, attached with candi-dot foam squares, which are so handy.  A doily tucked behind my image to give it a lacy look, along with some flowers, and this card is complete.
