Lexi's Birthday Card

Today is my granddaughter's birthday and this is the card I made for her.  I hope she like it.

The image was decoupaged and a set was made by a dear friend Brenda.  I think she does marvelous work.  Anyway I hope Lexi likes her card.

This is the inside of the card--Brenda made the insert as well--and the backing paper on the front of the card

 And this is a picture of it up on the frame holder. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoyed Lexi's card.

Have a great day--weekend is almost here...

First off--how to you like my new blog layout.  It was done by my wonderful friend Rita this time.  Usually her daughter Chrissy does it, but Rita has learned also now--so WooHoo I have two great friends who make my blog beautiful.  

Anyway for my addition today I used a Gorjuss image and a CUP frame.  I used Sharpies to color, the leaves around the rose buds are a Martha Stewart punch, then organza ribbon from my stash.  Hope you like her.

Well Good Morning Everyone....
Today is hump day...middle of week...only 2 to go til the weekend.  Hang in there...
Well I finally got to do a blog challenge..WooHoo..It is about time.

The theme over at Christmas Stamping All Year Long this week is a Non-stamped card....well right up my alley as I have been on a decoupage card kick for a while now....--so here is my card--with No Stamping--nope didn't have to get my pinky inky for this one.

I loved this card--so serene looking--gosh am I getting old -- I like this kind of serene look and feel,  instead of the busy busy stuff I used to like....

Anyway hope you like it...
Thanks for stopping by...

Have a great day everybody...

Flowers and Glitter

Hi All
Tonight I decided to share a flower blossom---don't know what kind it is (lol)  I just thought it was pretty and fun to do.  I added glitter to the flower petals--which I don't do often.  I don't know why because I like it....just don't (lol)
It is a rather simple card, but I think the blossom is rather dramatic.
Hope you like it.
Thanks for taking the time and stopping by.
Have a great night and week
Til next time-------

Lexie's Birthday invites

Hello Everyone
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
I am sharing the birthday party invites I made for my granddaughter.  She LOVES My Little Pony so I made her invites with them.
The pony was a colorbook page I shrunk down.  I colored the ponies with my Bic and Sharpies.  The little tag says A Birthday party for Lexie Gilman was punched with a Stampin Up punch, the leaves were punched with a Martha Stewart punch.  I embossed the background with the Swiss dot cuttlebug folder.  I am sure Lexie will love them.  I hope you liked them too.  The first here is a close up, and the second picture is the whole lot of them.  I made twelve.  Let me know what you think....
Til next time------
  Let's keep those pinkies inky
