Living in Southern California, going to the Beach in the Summer is a MUST! I love,love, love, going to the beach and spending the day there then watching the sunset..just beautiful! Luckily for me, my kids love going as wewell! I have created a trifold card using The Greeting Farm Stamp Cheeky BeBeach. I colored her using copics and punch her out using Nesties. I wrapped the corners up in peurple twine from the twinery. The paper that Iused is from K&Co and is from the Citrus Bliss collection.I just LOVE the color combos and the brightness of this collection! The flowers are by Prima. I made the Butterflies using my Martha Stewart Butterfly punch and used Diamond Stickles to give them some sparkle! Thank you for stopping by! Please become a follower and leave a comment!

Thank You's using TGF Flirty Anya!

Here are some Thank-You's that I made for my Mom and Mother In Law for the wonderful Birthday gifts that they sent to me! Thank you! I started out with TGF Flirty Anya and colored her with copics in the C range. I wanted to add a splash of color, so I thought coloring the flower in her hair in the shades that I wanted would make it pop.. I cut the image out using the Beaded Oval ( THANKS CINDY!) Nestie die from Spellbinders. Added some ribbon and prima's and WhoooLa! Loved who these turned out. Simple, but cute! The Pink/zebra theme is for my Mom And the Green/polkadot theme is for my Mother in Law.

Cinderella and Prince Charming.. TGF style...

I made this card to enter it into TGF Royal Challege Contest. This weeks theme is fairytale. I thought that this adorable stamp from the cake topper set would look cute to use as Cinderella and Prince Charming! I colored the image with copics.. in fact I searched online for pictures of Prince Charming so that I could color his clothes the correct colors! :) The castle was cut using my cricut and the Once Upon A Princess cart. The Carriage and the glass slipper were also cut using my cricut and the Happily Ever After Cart. I embossed the inside layers and the tag using my cuttlebug and the D'vine Swirl embossing folder. I tied some tulle on the front and attatched a crown charm. I used Diamond Stickles on the image, castle, sentiment, carriage, & glass slipper. The sentiment is also from TGF cake topper set. Thanks for looking!
