Coloring Fun

I've been busy, over the past few weeks, experimenting with various Copic & Promarkers to learn more about coloring different hair and skin types for digi stamps. Thankfully, there area plenty of "how-to" videos on YouTube that provide specific do & don'ts. I want to add greater depth and dimension to my handmade, greeting cards so I am soaking up all the info' I can. Aside from the studying coloring techniques, I made two cards. As you can see, I've been on an orange kick lately. Thanks for visiting!

Friendship x's Two

Today, I created another card to reflect the importance of friendship in our lives. Whether you're going through a difficult time or fun and delightful moments, friends can make a world of difference. I think the digi' and sentiment capture the essence of friendship. Thanks for stopping by!

It's All About...Friendship!

I love cards that depict "friendship" and the important bond between friends. With my latest creation, two friends share a swing--something many of us enjoyed (as children) with our friends. I certainly did! When it came to choosing a color scheme, my choice was easy. I wanted colors that personify the warmth and fullness that friendship generates. I hope I captured those attributes! (smile). It is my hope that my "friends" card will bring a smile to its recipient.

Fun Project!

From time to time, I am called upon to make invitations for a birthday party or baby shower. One of my dear friends will be celebrating her 50th birthday on Saturday and wanted a custom invitation to give to her guests. She didn't want anything elaborate or time-consuming so I kept the design simple by adding a few bling crystals to this cute, tri-fold card I cut out one by one.

Hi, fellow stamping enthusiasts! I am thrilled to, once again, have the time to devote to my favorite activity--> creating custom, greeting cards!
