Swinging Good Time.

you guessed it... another magazine card contest. I used flower soft to add depth to the tree and grass. I also thought the green eyelash fiber added a great grassy-like detail to the card. Retired SU! and non SU! images used.



Here is another card I eneterd in Magazine contest. I colored with COPICS. Added many layers of paper and cardstock. Not sure what company the stamp and tree trunk are from... I got them in an image swap many years ago. Used branch punch and many misc items.  All items used on this card are non SU!



Here is a card I made for a magazine contest entry. I love this stamp set but, I am sad to say it retired and I  only used it a few times. I paper pieced his body using green polka dot paper that coordinated with a sock monkey paper line (all used on this card) I found at a local craft store.I colored his hat and added it to his head after I placed it onto a mat area raised with foam dots.  Didn't he turn out so cute? I love the vibrant colors and patterns. It reminds me of a sock monkey doll I saw at Target.
CARD: stamps *retired*SOCK MONKEY set. Misc paper, tissue paper (ruffle), button, copic markers.


Elegant Anniversary Ensemble

Sorry its been so long since my last blog post. So much going on around here lately. Because of the busy schedule and having difficulties with blogger, I have not done too much crafting/ blogging. The air is starting to feel cooler. Fall is definately around the corner. Hopefully, I will have more time to do some crafting/ blogging. Here is a quick and easy altered frame and card I made for friends' anniversary. I love the monochromaticcolor scheme. Creme on creme is so elegant and beautiful...isn't it?

card: CONFETTI CREME #102835 and VERY VANILLA #101650 cardstock. ELEGANT LINES TEXTURED EMBOSSING FOLDER #119277. Frame is FOUR FRAMES #123442 Love verse from retired SU set. Misc lace, silk ribbon, and paper rose. 

I wrapped more silk ribbon and lace around pewter frame  I found at Target for next to nothing. I  attached another paper rose to match the card. I guess I should have took the cheesy advertising photo out before I took the picture, huh?
