James (my grandson) birthday is this Saturday. So sense he thinks he is a superhero these days, I thought I would make him this card. I got the image (digital) from Digital Pencil Too. They are drawn by Mo Manning. If you have ever looked at her site you would have been amazed at her talent. I thought that this image was so fitting. I colored it with Copics. Do you want to know what colors---All red areas-R27, 29, 37 All blue areas-B24, 26, 29, Hair (yes he is a carrot top) -YR61, 14, 04, Skin-E000, E00, YR00, cheeks E02, Grey areas N0, N1, N4. I sponged some clouds in the background but they are not showing up in the picture. Enjoy

Today I would like to post a picture of the card that I made my husband for Valentines Day. I found this on this site http://valitasfreshfolds.blogspot.com/. She has some wonderful tutorials. And also refers you to other sites that have great things also. Everything is punched and shaded with inks. The verse is from Verve. The papers are all Stampin Up. The border is a border that was around the paper. I trimmed it down and sense it only had a border on one edge, I cut a piece of the border and mounted on top of the rest. It is amazing what everyone is doing with those Stampin Up bird and owl punches. They are a lot of fun. I made the flower on this page with the bird punch. The flower is the wing of the bird and the stem is the branch.

Here is a little tent card that I am pleased as punch with. I love the colors and the image. Though when I started, this isn't anything at all what I thought I would do. Now I have to find a catchy phrase to put in the inside. Maybe something like "Flying by to say Hi" or something about when pigs fly. I will figure it out.
The image is a digital one from Hambo Stamps that I colored with Copics. The background paper is one of K & Company. I used a MS border punch at the bottom of the card front. Then I took a strip of the orange cardstock and punched it with the same border punch. I placed the punched border at the top under the punched card front just to fancy up the inside and the orange makes the punched border more visible. I used Spellbinders dies to cut the ovals. The little swirly things at the top and bottom are one of the fancy tags.

This is an album that I saw on the Prima site and it took me for ever to finish. Actually I was just going to see how it looked using a border punch at the top and to try out some new glue. This is a star book and I had never made one before. Well one thing led to another and before I knew it I was well on my way to finishing it. I have stamped verses about friendship on each of the lables. I don't know if you noticed but I have pieces inserted between each page so that I can add pictures on them.
I made a few cards today. One is a thank you note for a beautiful August Wendall dish that I recieved for Christmas. It is so pretty and was so unexpected. I love surprises. The other card is just me fooling around with my border punches. The verse is from Tim Holtz. I really like it. I don't have anyone to give it to but I am sure it will get used---eventually.
