My mini daffodils came up great this year, I was super happy. I have such a brown thumb and when they actually bloom I am happy. Thought about coloring up these daffodils in the honor of them actually surviving. haha 

My first one is rather simple with some swiss dots embossed backing. My thank you sentiment across the bottom and some more brads. Added some sparkle as well. 

This one a little more simple with an embossed backing and a small strip of color. The blue flowers did not turn out like I planned so I had to color them in which was frustrating but such is crafting at times. More brads and some sparkle. Voila! Have a great day.

Lavender Camillas

These two cards are using Simply Camilla's which is another all time favorite flower. I know the clear stamp is not longer available but I think that Power Poppy does have the digital versions available. My first card has a spellbinder die across the bottom of the base layer. Added an embossed leaf to the lavender piece. Colored with Copics and added some sparkles and more of the brads as I might as well use them. 

This one frustrated me a bit as the green on the leaves didn't color like I wanted, oh well. Die cut tag for the behind panel with ribbon and lace trim wrapped around. More of the flourished pearls and some sparkle. I do like cutting out around the flowers though. My favorite part on this card was popping those up after cutting around the edges. Awwww... Have a great day!

Sunflower smiles

Holy cow two posts in the same year, I am off to a great start then. ha ha  This is a really old one called Autumn Blessings I think? Really old but I do like the image. A little bit of sparkle and might as well use up some brads since I have a million of these things. 

Next is a sunflower from Heartfelt creations and I totally forgot the name of this one. I liked the bumblebee designer paper with this one. Added sparkles and some die cut heart to the bottom. 

Same stamp but only used a portion of the image. Lots of these flourished pearls in my stash so added those and some ribbon. Another easy peasy set of cards. Thanks for stopping by.

Creating again

Good morning. Been awhile since I posted on the blog or even created much. Life has been exciting and busy, which is positive.  My crafting has taken a back seat but hoping to revive it once again. Over the last few weeks I colored and created the below. Forgive me for not putting links and such. I am just happy to get something posted. :-) 

This first one was using Bountiful Blessings. Stamped the sentiment along the side panel and some designer paper down the left side. Sparkles and such was added but hard to see in the picture. 

Birthday card using Fly Guy. Man do I need to work on a few things, rusty! ;-)  Simply wrapped some twine around the base layers and sparkle added to the water. 

This is using Tiger Lily Xl, still one of my favorite flowers. Top layer is popped up for dimensional. Faux stitched border around the edge. Sparkles of course on the petals.

Several baby cards needed for the coming week. Using several stamps from Crafters Companion. Older die cuts from a company no longer in business. Faux stitching around the edges and some sparkles. 

Another this one a boy card. Same info just different colors. 

I have to say my favorite baby one that I created using this guy from Whimsy Stamps. He just makes me smile. Added ribbon, some more sparkles and dies. 
Well hopefully I won't wait a year to post again. But for now, hope you are doing well and God is being a blessing to you! Have a great day.
