Sharing is Best

ebsm

Good Day Friends !!

Man it has been a couple of weeks since I have been able to post anything !!! After going back to work 2 weeks ago and working these LONG hours I haven’t gotten to play any in my craft room at all. But today I have a card to show you that I made while I was off.

It is a card I made with the latest release from Elizabeth Bell from the Odd’s and Ends Sampler from Susana’s Custom Art and Cards.

Isn’t she so cute???

She is called Sharing is Best. She has been colored with my copic’s and I have used paper from the KaiserCraft pad Chapter One from Susana’s .

The Elegant Scroll is a Memory Box Die and I have used some Prima Flowers on my card.

The Odd’s and End’s Sampler set you can find Here

And I did manage to stay awake long enough last night just to get some coloring in and thought I would do some masking. Sorry just the image these ol eyes just couldn’t make it any longer lol

My teamie Danni  has done a wonderful Tutorial over on the Follow Your Heart blog  that you can find HERE you should go check it out. She has some wonderful ideas on masking.

A granddaughter is …..

framesm

Well it is Monday !!!! And that means after a whole month of being off from my surgery, I am back to work !!!!!!!!!! Oh I pray this 11 1/2 hour day goes so fast. I know I am going to be whipped by the time I get home. But I do have to say I am so ready to get back to work !!! Never ever thought that would come out of my mouth lol

But I had one project I had made while I was off that I wanted to show you.

I made a frame from my granddaughter, ( I saw this idea on Dena’s Blog) My granddaughter loves my Magnolia stamps and she is always wanted to color them. So I just thought I would make her something for Valentines Day (along with her candy of course lol)

I have colored one of the new Tilda’s with copic’s and Spica glitter pens and I covered the rose also with some smooch pearlized accent ink.

I got the wooden frame at HL and I used some Viva Decor Inka Gold paint on it and after that dried really well I sanded it and then to give it an old age looked I sponged on some distressed vintage photo ink on top of it. I was pleased how this turned out.

I then put glamour dust glitter paint on the flowers to make this sparkle.

Don’t forget that Susana’s Custom Art and Cards had a new release yesterday with the adorable Spring Fairy’s you can find them HERE. They are so adorable and so much fun to color. And there are lots of new pads of papers that you will just die to have Here so go check out all the new wonderful things Susana has for you !!!!!!!

Yelp I went and saw the surgeon yesterday and he has released me to go back to work. I am ready for the most part but will miss having so much free time. It has been a whole month that I have been off since my surgery. But am feeling good and am ready to return, just not the 11 1/2 hours. lol

First I would like to give you a head’s up that there will be a new release coming Sunday from Susana’s Custom Art and Cards. You don’t want to miss out so keep stalking the Follow Your Heart Blog so you don’t miss out !!!

But I wanted to make a note book for a dear friend of mine that has been here helping me and checking on me all the time. It is so nice to have a nurse around when you need one isn’t it ??

I have used this Nurse Tilda for my card (fitting huh?) she has been colored with my copic’s and spic glitter pens.

I have used one of the Memory Box dies  and added lots of flat pearls to it.

The borders are from Cheery Lynn Designs and I have used twinklets on all the flowers.

I used a magnolia flower and Marianne leaf die

The papers that I have used are some older SU papers. And I used walnut stain distressed ink on all the edges.

Well hello all

I am back with another little project I have done. It is so nice to be able to just play and not go to work lol Not for much longer though lol

Today I have altered a puzzle piece from a floor puzzle and have used this adorable image called Designing Dreams from the Elizabeth Bell Collection called Odds and End Sampler

for Susana’s Custom Art and Cards.

Sorry the picture isn’t so great and a bit crooked, but it was hard to get a picture as it is so big lol I thought it would make a cute door hanger.

The image has been colored with my copic’s and I have used smooch pearlized accent ink on her shirt.

You can get these adorable images from this collection HERE
