Happy Happy Happy Birthday!

My 4 panel pop up card was made using my own cut file I had made back a year or so.  I have since seen a version of this card on the silhouette store.  They call it a twist pop up card.
The designer paper used is from Recollections and the sentiment is from Create with TLC.

You Still Look Hot!

 As usual the image was colored using copics with liquid glass added to the eyes candle and sweat.  I cut the hole on the bottle of liquid glass too large so I wasn't able to control the flow very well. Hence the blobs on the drips. Once you drop it on there is no going back. LOL  The Designer paper is BoHo Chic. I gathered a paper punched border to frame the circle and then embellished with some stick on gems.

Another great new image from the March Stamp of the Month Challenge on now at From The Heart blog.
 I used the sketch from another ongoing Challenge(I heart sketches#166) also at From the Heart Stamps, although I turned it on its side. The sentiment on the front actually said " Good Luck Sweetie" but I had a wee little accident when I was placing my flags on the black strip. Apparently the tape I used sticks a little too well and doesn't allow for any adjusting. LOL 
 I colored  Lucky Little Birdie  using copics

At My Age

 Gus is one of my favorite character from Bugaboo Stamps. How can you not love a guy with such a sunny disposition and style. He  should have worn a heavier sunblock.
                                   Designer paper was just some scraps left from my stash.

Happy Valentines Day

I've had this little clothespin for so long I just had to use it for something so that is how I finished the card off. I also added a liquid pearl heart to the inside of the card.

Crafty Calendar- Love is in the Air


I love this cute Bugaboo stamp Happy valentines to ewe image and sentiment.  I just lightly colored the image using copics  and added a touch of glitter to spruce it up a little.
This is number three of my treat boxes.

 XOX die from the silhouette store and once again I used Lorie Whitlocks Matchbox Drawer Card with heart.

All My Butt

Look at those eyes!! You can always count on a dog to love and look up to you. This wonderfully sweet image from Mo's Digital Pencil was colored using copics. The glassy look on the eyes as well as the heart with sparkles added is Papier Glass Finish.  I also added some liquid pearl surrounding the image.
Oh and the funny sentiment was one I had seen somewhere and just jotted it down. I am using this card for my grandson who is 13. I thought he'd get a kick out of it.

Peace Love and Cupcakes

Cupcake mouse from Mo's Digital Pencil was colored using copics. He was a fun little guy to color.  Other than  the sewing I kept the card very simple. The image kind of tells it all so I didn't want to go overboard with embellishments.
Inside card sentiment is one from Create with TLC.
