DH Easter card
My DH loves bears enough to actually have a collection. I think his kids started it years ago as something to give him for gifts. I get tired of making fishing cards! However, there is a new fishing card coming -a birthday card for step-son. So this stamp is a real cutie from Wags and Whiskers. I used glossy accents on her purse. The greeting is from a double stamp set by Stampingscrapping.com. I ended up not having enough room for the outside of the stamp. We have a girl cat named Murphy who is super attached to DH, so this worked perfectly.
The stickles are on the bow on her arm and the centers of the roses in her hat, and her pearls - had to be careful here not to overdo! The copics I used are:C1, C2, C3, Y17, YG23, R17, B02, YR23, YR20, E31, E33, E35, E37, R59. Stick around. If I get the chance later today, I will post a couple of cards made with little or no copics! This chipboard sticker was terribly plain so I stickled it up! Made a nice simple inside. I have lots of birthdays coming up in May. The Cupcake fairy was for one of them. I can hardly wait for that granddaughter to get the card! Hugs to you all, Barb F
Nearing 70, a great grandmother and just now turning into a crafter, I found that it is fun to share my scrapbooking type crafts with others. I am always organizing even though I am pretty good about putting things away after I use them. Guess that will be my epitaph, she was an organizer and a scrapbooker/cardmaker.
