True Love


Hi everyone!  It feels amazing to finally get this card done.  I've had the base layer done for over a year now (probably more like two) and just couldn't decide how to finish the card.  Then I saw this sketch on Create with Connie and Mary and everything fell into place.



Once I added the strips, ribbon and button I decided to make it a wedding or anniversary card.  The image used on this card is the True Love digital stamp by From The Heart Stamps.


Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

Missing You Bunches


Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a card I created for Operation Write Home. The card base is Pink layered with White then embossed Kraft cardstock. The image and sentiment are stamped on the White cardstock and the image colored in using copic markers. Using my black copic liner I drew squiggles around the edges of the white cardstock. To add dimension to the flowers I added some white dots in the center using a White Opague Paint Marker.
