For a Great Friend


Happy Good Friday everyone !!! If I don’t get back on this weekend I would like to go ahead and Wish You all a Happy Easter !!!


I worked on a couple of cards over the last few days and so wanted to get them posted. First up I have this gorgeous New Hanglar image from the Sailor Kit. I am so excited to be able to order these now.  I have colored my image with Copic’s and have used papers from MME. The doily is from Cheery Lynn Designs and the sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps along with the die I used to cut it out.  Flowers well let me tell you I was doing some cleaning in my craft room and found this box with all kinds of flowers in them that I forgot I had so I am sure these are some that came from like Wal-Mart. The leaf is a punch from Nellie Snellen . Ribbon is from my stash but I used a wonderful tutorial from the talented Becca from Amazing Paper Grace.
I have used the sketch from Party Time Tuesdays Challenge Blog and I also made this card for the challenge over at PaperTake Weekly where the theme is Spots and Stripes. Now you can see my stripes but the dots are sort of hard to see but they are the paper that I cut my doily die from.



Next I have used the sketch over at The Sugar Bowl and one of the Simply Sassy’s from Sugar Nellie. A dear sweet friend stamped me a few of these images she I don’t get these in my DT kit. I have colored her with my copic’s and used some brads and spacers from my stash. The papers I used are from The Paper Studio. The ribbon I braided. It didn't’ turn out as well as I wanted it to but you do the best you can I guess. lol Again flowers are from my stash that I found and I also used  my new MS punch that I got from winning the birthday candy over at Norma’s Blog.   I am also going to enter this into The Ribbon Girl Challenge where the theme is a color challenge this week.  I really wish my ribbon braid would of turned out like I wanted it to but I am going to have to figure a way to made some ends on them so I can wrap them behind without it being bulky.


Well you all have a great weekend and have a Happy Easter !!!!!!!!!


  1. Lovely cards. I love that Simply sassy image.

  2. Two wonderful cards!! Love the flowers on the first one and I love the Sassy image on the second one and the colours you've used and that fab piece of braiding - such a clever idea!! Hugs, Marie xx

  3. Both cards are gorgeous, I love how you braided the ribbon on the second one.. Came out great,


  4. With the Hänglar card, that doily die is tremendous & I love how those little pink flowers are picked up by the ruffle on the bow. I like the way she's perched too with her feet hanging down.
    The brads & spacers pick up the reds in the ribbon, rose & your colouring of the Sassy girl & I have to say I love that dark navy blue gingham.
