Sweet turtle by Marji

 How cute is this guy, I love him, I chose to keep this card simple and keep him the focal point.
I wrote the sentiment myself 

 He's just so sweet, I love how he's colored, his polka dot shell is so sweet.

The Coral flowers I punched out in Coral card stock then inked the petals with a rose Studio g ink pad. The gems are by Creatology- large and medium, Darice- small gems.

I'm feeling lucky by Marji

I am really late posting this sweet girl but I think she will be a great "thinking of you" card or an I love you card.  Just by adding "to know you" or "having you in my life" to the inside.
 I added a pretty layered garden beauty from Pinque Peacock and some pearls to her dress and shoes.
Isn't she sweet?

A Mother's Day Card

I know, I am a week late with this Mother's Day card (image by Sunsational Stamps), but shouldn't Mother's Day be everyday!


This is one of Lisa's newest designs which I love, love, love.  She is so cute.  I first print n cut her out using my Silhouette Cameo and Studio DE software.  The background is considered a stencil piece from SilhouetteAmerica online store which played around with ...first cutting out as a stencil and placed on cardstock and used different types of paint and distressed ink reinkers (doesn't work too well) and than attached my Silhouette blue pen to the holder and created this background.  I cut out three lacy borders and layered on top.  The sentiment I print and cut using a label from Grumpy Granny's store.  

Attached the pieces and layered it on black cardstock and than to the card base.  Colored with my copic markers which I love; and purchased three new ones just recently and used them on the shoes..

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, and happy crafting to all..xoxo

Happy Mother's Day by Marji

 Today I'm sharing a sweet new image.
This is the inside of the card.  I used a lot of decorative paper for this card.
 Isn't she sweet?  I always picked dandelions for my mom growing up so I hope she will get the connection.
 I think she even looks a little like I did as a kid. :)  
Flowers and bling, what more could mom want?

Just Shell-in with Marji

I used my Cameo to write the phrase with a sketch pen  
 I went google eye crazy on this one! lol, it's been a while since I used my google eyes, so I thought I'd have some fun.
