Friends are Life's Greatest Blessing

I was so overjoyed when I received this colorful, cheery, and special card from Lianne.  If you could only see my big smile when I opened the envelope.  Though you may not be able to see the layering of flowers, this card sure is 3D.   Makes me feel like I'm in a garden of pretty flowers in the Spring time.   Thank you again Lianne!!!!!

Recently, our friends became grandparents.   This is the card I made for the new mommy and daddy.   For the longest time I've wanted this image but it was always sold out.  Finally, I was lucky to get it.  Then I had to wait for someone to have a baby so I could ink it up.  LOL.

Sympathy Cards

Sadly, I had to make 2 sympathy cards recently..  I thought I'd make them a bit similar in design so I wouldn't have to "brain storm" since life has been quite busy. 

For the card on the left, I used the following products:
Image by Mari & Me
Big Scallop Circle die by Spellbinder
Circle dies by Spellbinder
Washi Paper
Sentiment - exclusively from Island Scrapbooking
Wink of Stella to give the sakura a bit of sparkle

For the card on the right....
Same as above but rather than use washi paper, I used an embossing folder.

Thanks for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!!!

Happy Mail from My Dear Cousin

A couple of days ago, I received happy mail from my dear cousin and much to my surprise, this sweet and darling rocker card she made for me.  I've never seen an interactive card like this before and totally LOVE IT.  It really fun is that?

In addition to the surprise, she so generously sent me a b/d gift.  I love the tag and sticker!!!!  So pretty and "Springy."

I'll be a happy shopper on and will definitely have fun inking up this super cute stamp by Candi Bean.  So kawai'i.   THANK YOU SO MUCH DEAR COUSIN!!!!  You sure made my day a happy one.   Hugs!!!!

But wait, there's more (I sound like the commercial yah?).   Look at these GORGEOUS cards she made.  It's hard to see in the picture but the pieces to the left of the belly band are layered and gives the card a really nice 3D effect.

Remove the belly band and this is what the inside looks like.   So cool!!!!!!

Here's one in green....

And pink....

And lavendar.....

Wait till you see these "bubble" cards.  The embellies under the domed-shaped plastic are beautifully layered too.  Really EXQUISITE!!!!

Here are a couple with pretty butterflies (oops, sorry, a bit crooked.  I'm not a great camera person....LOL)

And another with pretty flowers.

Thank you so much dear cousin.  You are amazing and so talented.
