Welcome baby!

Hello all.  I made this card for our neighbors new baby boy.  Hmm, I didn't realize it until now, this is the very first baby card that I have made.  I am really loving all the sweet critter images that several stamp companies are coming out with.  Of course, they are nice to use for any age.


Card and Envelope together

I tried my hand at watercolor this time. I do like the way most of it turned out.
The grass....not so much. I had a hard time getting the watercolor paper to adhere to the card base.  It keeps  pulling up around the edges and I continue to add different types of glue.  Even my no fail glue, Aleene's super thick tacky glue is not working.  I just better get this card to Wyatt before it falls apart or he graduates from college!

New House, New Craft Room, New Card!

Hello all!  Well, we moved in May and my craft room has just now been set up and I am finally able to work in it.  It is still a work in progress, but I am crafting!

I wanted the first card that I made to be for someone special.  Her name is Mary and she was a good friend to my younger brother Scott who passed away last year.
Thank you, Mary.

This sweet little image is "Miss You Lots" by Wplus9.

 The background was inspired by Christy Sugiarto of Christy Designs.
She did an absolutely beautiful design with watercolors.  You can see it here.
 I used Copic markers for my card.

Happy thoughts!
