Rainbow unicorn

This is one of the cutest unicorns I've ever seen -- it comes from the Bugaboo store.   I've made it colorful, which gives off happy vibes, and the ribbon behind just sets it off even more.  I sponged the outer frame of my stitched die cut, as well as my sentiment.  If you go in for a closer look, you'll see that I've added stardust stickles to the wings, as well as the clouds for more of a magical look.   You're never too old to dream!

Spring brings showers

This is Tilda from the Magnolia line of stamps.  I found I had the perfect umbrella background paper to use on this card.   With April showers, come flowers, so I couldn't resist adding one to my creation.   I used a glittery brad for the flower center and regular brads on the image frame itself.  The two corners are a die cut, and I had the 3-D banner in my stash.  Happy spring !!

Cool kitty in shades

This cool cat is from Eureka Stamps and I loved putting this creation together.   Dotted swiss ribbon along the bottom, a couple layered doilies, die cut scrolled foliage, flowers added with gem or pearl centers, with a few extra gems alongside my image and voila, my card is complete.  I'm happy with the look of the citrus colors I chose to use.  Thanks for coming in to look.

Love ladybugs

This adorable ladybug/circle sentiment comes from the Bugaboo store, and it's so easy to color up.  It makes for a happy card, which I've chosen to make multiples of, that will be going to the "Bring Smiles to Seniors" charity.   If you'd like to know more about it, just click on the title here, or I've posted it to the right.  I simply cut the image with a die cut and then another red die cut for a bit of a frame, atop a lacy doily.  I did add a bit of stardust stickles to the larger pink heart for a bit of pizzazz.

thoughts of you

How could I resist adding this image from Saturated Canary to my collection when she's named "Lilliana". so similar to my name . . . I've colored with prismas, then used die cut corners and the frame around her, added ribbon, and layered flowers with brad centers.

Daffodil mania

Ah, spring, and the promise of early flowers, like these daffodils.  This sweet image comes from Di's Digi Designs, which I've colored with prismas and added stardust stickles to the daffodils for some glitz.   I've added the flowers, butterfly, doily, and the corners are candi-dots.  Hope this creation brings some spring thoughts in your direction!
