Happy Birthday to Oliver!

Yesterday was my grandson's first birthday. I really liked the sketch for Mojo Monday this week, so I created a Design Space file for the card. It was so easy!

I hope the little guy enjoys this (or at least his cake!).

Live your dream with passion

I saw these lovely cards on the Frilly and Funkie blog. Although I didn't have everything she used, that was OK. I really prefer to use someone else's work as inspiration, but to add my own touch to it.

I don't know what I'll do with this card. The learning experience made it valuable, and having it in my stash is sure to come in handy at some point in time.

Thank you

So I've been working quite a bit on getting some new cards made up. I don't remember where I saw the idea for the these cards. As soon as I saw the sample though I really liked it and knew I wanted to try it. Both cards have strips of distress ink watercolor onto watercolor paper. Then I use some gold perfect pearls to splatter on the card. For both of the cards I cut out the word thanks using some foil paper. I just adhered it to the front of the card. On the other card, however, I cut the word thanks out of the watercolor paper and then put the foil thanks into the opening, and I added the tiny pieces as well. Some sequins added the final punch to both cards.
