Cosmo Card #1 -

Well, I have created 4 cards from the Cosmo Cricket - Jolly by Golly line for an upcoming card class I will be teaching. I was wandering around M's one day and came across these Christmas Shaped board books and thought wow would they ever make cute card shapes! So this is the first of the set of 4!
Details for the card... I folded over a piece of 12x12 cardstock and traced the mitten shape of the boardbook onto the cardstock and the patterned paper... The yellow snowflake is a punch shape I have and added a little stickles to it and the pick frame around the skating bird! All other items are from the Cosmo Line Jolly by Golly except of course for the ribbon!

House Card

While I was away in Florida Wayne's parents moved to their new house in St. George and I made this card before I left. The card is actually made from one piece of patterned paper that I found when I was at Younique. Even the Bushes and the Tree I added were a part of the paper and it was double sided so the stripped pattern on the roof was on the opposite side!

I used Acetate sheet for the windows and Cardstock for the door and window frame. I also added a little stickles.

Welcome Back to Canada (Rainy & Cold)

Well... I have had a busy couple of weeks... I spent a glorious weekend being pampered at Younique where I managed to create 7 page layouts and a number of cards which will be posted over the next litle while... I loved the weather in Florida, how can you not just love the 97 degree weather! Especially sitting by a pool and spending some quality time with friends shopping! I created the following 4 cards for my girlfriends as sort of a thank you for the wonderful time we spent together. Each one was sort of custom made for each of them: The one with Shoes is for my friend Nadine who I got to know a little better on this trip... I am told she has a shoe fettish.... the one with pony tail is my girlfriend Joe-Ann... the one with the dark curly hair is my girlfriend Jen and how can I forget the one with the flippy hair is my girlfriend Andrea... I have known these girls for a long time now and we have definately spent some quality time over the years of doing some amazing things together however I think this trip definately goes down in my books as one of the most enjoyable moments with these girls...

Card Details: Split punch, Stamping Bella Stamps, copics and Stickles all make up these cards...The sentiment reads Retail Therapy and inside it says It's a Friendship Thing!
