Spa Day

Good Morning,

My friend and her sister asked me to make a gift for their mom for Mother's day.  They gave her a Spa Day and all three of them are going.  I couldn't post this before Mother's Day because her mom reads my blog!

So here is what I made... a gift tote


And a tag!  My friends loved it!  I get such joy in making things for my friends.


The SVGfile is from a company that I just discovered, it is called My Scrap Chick and this file is called Spa Gift Set.  

Recipe for this tote and tag:

Paper - Nana's Kitchen & scraps
Quick Quotes Powder Puff Chalk
Prismacolor colored pencils
Sentiment - Docerela Stamps - Spa Time
Ribbon - DLART

I am entering this project into the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge - #467 - In the Pink
Crafting By Designs - Mother's Day


By the time you read this, I will be on my way to Washington Hospital Center to try to figure out what is going on with this infection in my jaw.  I hope we get some answers soon and I will be back to my regular commenting and crafting schedule!

Hugs,

Good Morning,

I used really bright colors because it is such a fond memory for me.

A Birthday Card for my Brother

Good Morning,

Yesterday was my oldest brother's birthday.  I usually make him a very masculine card but I decided to go on the light side this year.


The stamp and sentiment are from Mo's Digital Pencil. The name of the stamp is Birthday Pig.  I colored it with Copic Markers, I used Spellbinders Card Creator.  The paper is from K&Company "Confetti".  I have had this paper for a long time.  The presents and balloons are stickers from my stash.

Here is a close up of the stamp.


Here is the inside of the card. The sentiment is from my stash.

Mother's Day Faries

Good Morning,

I was in a strange mood when I made this card.  I just fell in love with the image, took a lot of time to color her and then to make her into a card.



I love the little fairy baby that she is holding, so cute!  I bought this stamp off of Esty it is by Molly Harrison Art and it is called "Mother and Baby Fairy." The sentiment says "Mom thank you for loving me and being there for me always." I love this stamp set, it is from My Sentiment Exactly.  I colored the stamp with Copic Markers.

I cut one piece of Bo Bunny "Back to Back Double Dot paper".  I cut it with my Spellbinders card making dies.  I then turned the paper over and fancy tore it.  I thought about inking the torn edges but I really like the white.  I made a doily with Spellbinders Picot Edged Circles, the image and it's background were cut with  cut it in half and used it for the background.  The flowers are very old, from my stash, I think they may be Prima.
