Happy graduation - done in red and white

Graduation time is coming soon.  This card is done in the colours of our national flag.

Play Ball

The self designed designer paper was made by stamping images of the stamp set :"Just Baseball".
This card is bound to be a hit with anyone who loves the sport of playing ball.

Canada's National Colours - card #2

This is another card made with the stamp set:  Canada Day.

Our National Flag

The challenge was to make a card with the colours of our national flag - so I made a card of the national flag of Canada.

The stamp set is called:  Canada Day

All a Flutter

This card was made with the new butterfly stamp from SU.  The butterflies were embossed with black embossing powder on vellum, coloured on the back with markers, cut out and mounted on curry cardstock.
Don't they look real? Get your butterfly net handy!

Playing with my Copics

Stampavie has come out with some new delightful stamps, so this weekend I played with my copic markers and made 3 cards

This little girls is doing an activity I love to do - gardening.  She is accompanied by 2 feline friends - one hiding behind the embelllishment

This chic young lady is walking her dog.  Both seem to be enjoying themselves.

Now, this lady has "attitude", but obviously loves to dance.  Don't you just love her?
