Birthday Wishes

Afternoon Everyone..This past week has been rather difficult trying to recover from the fall of stairs at work, bumping my head and try walking around in a moon boot! But thank goodness a new week is about to start and I look forward to healing and to get ahead on making Christmas Gifts for family and friends. I am always short on Birthday cards and always promise myself to have a stash of them, and yet I never seem to have enough. I thought this card turned out okay, I am not really sure I am happy with it but for now I'll leave it alone and see if it grows on me. LOL!! I had received this image through Wish-Rak for the SU Stipple Butterfly. At first I was going to color it only yellow and orange, but as I looked at it, it just needed more color, so I decided to make it more of a rainbow effect. But after I colored it, it just didn't pop like I wanted it to. So I decided to cover the entire image with Diamond Glaze and let it dry and then cut it out to give the card a 3-D look. I wanted to card to be simple, but yet catching at the same time. So here is my "Simple Butterfly". Hope you enjoyed looking at it.
Supplies: SU Stipple Butterfly, Bazzill papers, MS Punch, Diamond Glaze and Spellbinders Dies.

Forgive me for not posting...

I cannot believe it has been 23 days since my last post. I have been working on several projects, but time has gotten away. And looks as if I maybe MIA for a little longer. Took a rather nasty fall at work yesterday down two flights of stairs and am now wearing a moon boot for the next 3 weeks!!!!!! I cannot believe I wasn't paying attention where I was walking. aarrgghh!!!!! Trying to type and keep the foot elevated is a little hard to do. But I do have a couple of cards to share with you. Forgive me if I am not real chatty on here the drugs make me feel a little "out of place or spacey I should say" if you know what I mean. LOL!!!!!!Thanks to Carisa over at Lady Guinevere's Inky Faeries for RAK'g this image to me. I think this is really a cute Bella and may have to order her as my granddaughter is enamoured with mermaids now instead of princesses. I had alot of fun making this one and really wanted to make it 3-D to look as if she was just balancing over the ocean floor.
Supplies: Stamping Bella "Underwatergoddessabella, Papertrey Ink Honey Bees for the look of seaweed. Minature seashells that I had found at a shell shop in Morro Bay. prismacolor Markers and Twinkling H2o's for the effect on her scales and fin. Brads covered in stickles for the starfishes and Blue and Sand Beads for the ocean floor. Paper by Paper Adventures and Kiwi Kiss Ink used for the seaweed coloring.

I could not help but select this image and make it a special card for my sweet precious granddaughter. She has been in dance since she was two years old and is now 7 and Friday is her last recital until the fall classes begin. I always present her with a miniature rose bouquet and a card to say "You Were A Shining Star". My sweet friend Carisa RAK'd me these images on a day that I was feeling blue. This little Stampingbella MissMatch Ketto reminds me of Mikayla. She thinks she is a princess (of course to Grandma she is..LOL!!!) and when she dances she is always right on step never missing a beat and gives 110%. Pink is her favorite color. I think she will be quite pleased with this card all because it is in her favorite color pink, its glittery, has a crown with tiny rhinestones at the tip of it and it was made expecially for her by G'ma Dee. I think I may have to purchase several more of these sweet stamps, as they all seem to resemble my sweet Kayla in one way or another. Supplies: Paper-Bazzill Tink Pink, Polka Dot Paper-Bazzill Creative Imaginations Pizzazzill, Prima Flowers, Pink Rhinestones,-Markers: Prismacolor Mulberry and Blush Pink, SU Stamp Sentiment-Say It With Scallops, Martha Stewart Punch, Nestabilities Oval Plain and Scallop and Cuttlebug Scalloped Die
