Been Awhile!!

Well my daughter gave me a list awhile back on cards she needed so I have been working off of that but she wanted a card for her Father for his birthday but she didn't want a cutie stamp. So I pulled out my vintage stamps and alcohol inks which have not been used in ages and made this card for her to give her father. I used the Time to Stamp image. And used the pesto and slate alcohol inks. I used a gold leafing pen to go around each of the papers and used the Martha Stewart border punch at the bottom. The buttons are from BG and the ribbon is from SU. Thanks so much for looking Hugs

Whiff of Joy #19

This week at Whiff Of Joy Challenge Blog we have a wonderful sketch and by the very talented Katharina. We are always so glad when she has time to make sketch's for us. But this sketch challenge is a very special one. Katharina is using this sketch for entry's for her Guest Designer for 2 months at Whiff of Joy. How awesome is that???
I have used this week the cute Gerda Celebrating Goat. Isn't she adorable. I colored her in with my copic's, spica glitter pens and white gel marker. The papers are from K&Co. And I have used my Martha Stewart border punch and retro flower punches. The brad is just from my stash and the wording is also from Whiff of Joy and the punches are from SU for the wording. I added some flat bling and ribbon from my stash to my card also.
Well sure hope to see major entry's this week on the challenge blog I know it will be a busy challenge with the GDT call. So can't wait to see what you all do.

It's Animal time!!!!

Well with baby Nathaniel coming real soon I figured I had better finish up all his little goodies I had started for him. So these are the last of them.
Here I took a wooden frame and covered it with the leaf paper, I colored the High Hope Animals with my copic markers and white gel pen, spica glitter pens. I used some fun flock on the tiger. And I made the palm tree leaves 3-D I used pop dots on them.
I sanded the edges of the frame and used Rangers Vintage distressed ink on it. I then took my sizzix alphabet and put his name on the top. You couldn't see it very well so I added some doodle to it lol.

This is a wooden chest I bought at Hobby Lobby. I painted it with Rangers paints and then used a sealer on it. I added some animal embellishments by Paperbilities.

Here is the top of the chest. I had the giraffe left and just had to use it so I put it on the top so when he gets here Mommy can add his weight, height time etc on it.
Well I think we are ready for him to come now I know mommy is bless her heart she is just miserable and ready to pop.
Thanks for looking and have a good day, Hugs
