I just found out one of my friends became engaged to be married over Christmastime. I was so excited and I knew I needed to make her a card!
The image is from Stamping Bella. I stamped it in SU! basic black and colored with markers Real Red and Cameo Coral. I used crystal effects to color the entire glass and stem as well as the top of the stirrer. In real life it is very shiny. Paper is Cameo Coral, Real Red, Whisper WHite and Pink Pirouette. The patterned paper is DS paper in real red.
I used the tag corner punch on the white cardstock and the stamped saying is from the set level 3 hostess set Goody Goody Gumdrops.
I had fun making this card, hope you like it!

New Year

It is a new year (well, a week and a half in) and I finally have a little creative motivation.

December was a busy month, with Christmas and Ice storms that left us powerless and with water in our basements (and craft rooms!). But it is 2009 and a new year, all is cleaned up and working on reorganizing.

This weekend was cold and snowy and perfect for staying in. My 5 and 4 year old daughters spent some alone time with mommy and made cards. They came out great. They each chose who to make a card for and one is a birthday card for thier aunt and the other is for another aunt just because they love her.

They did really great and had a lot of fun!
