Staci's 15th Birthday

I made it back to show you the card that I made for my daughter Staci's 15th Birthday today. I got to use this set by Inkadinkado that I have had for awhile now. It was alot of fun to make. When I made the card for my Dad's birthday the other day Staci told me that she really liked my layout. I thought I would try and use it again for one for her. I am quite pleased with how it turned out. I just love getting to use my cuttlebug embossing folders. I find they just add so much to a card.

I can't believe that Staci turned 15 today. Seemed like only yesterday that she was born and now she is in her middle teen years. She is a good kid and I am so proud of her. She and I are great friends. I truly am blessed. Hope you had a wonderful birthday today Staci.

I have been trying hard lately to use ribbon my most of my cards. I find that I happier with them when I do. I am just find that I am never sure if I like what I did but this one will pass for sure. Staci really liked the card so that afterall is all that counts, right?

Ink: Pallett Noir
Accessories: Copic Markers, Cuttlebug, embossing folders, adhesive and regular ribbon

I made this card for my Dad's 73rd Birthday on the 22nd. I always find men's cards so hard to make but this one just popped into my head after looking through the gallery at SCS and it came together rather quickly. I must say that I am quite pleased with how it turned out. My dad really liked it to.


Stamps: Birthday Whimsy
Ink: Taken With Teal, So Saffron
Accessories: Cuttlebug, embossing folders, nestabilities, glitter pen, adjesive ribbon

Tomorrow is my daughter's 15th birthday so I will have to be back and show the one that I made for her.

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend! I certainly am.

Take care

Riley's Garden!

This is my contribution to this week's challenge SC174 over at SCS. I had alot of fun making it but it was a bit of a challenge to fill out such a big card. The measurements for this card are 8 x 9 1/4". It is quite a challenge have enough on the card front. I am pleased with how this turned out but did wish that I had the oval nestabilities. I would have preferred to have a scalloped edge. I used my coluzzle instead. I just love this little guy Riley. I think he is so cute.

I used my copics again to color the image. I think I am getting a bit more used to these but am not there yet for sure. They are different than other coloring mediums to use. Practice makes perfect my Mom used to say. I also used the copic to color the M's dew drops with. Words perfect.

I am still having trouble taking pictures of my cards. There just doesn't seem to be enough light in my stamp room or something. I have tried numerous things and still can't get the kind of picture that I am used to taking. I have to take at least 6 or 7 before I can pick one that is half decent and they often look good on the camera and no on the computer. Need to practice that more too I think.


Stamps: Riley in the garden, M's 1.50 stamps
Paper: Groovy Guava, Whisper White, Dp from SU called Ginger Blossom
Ink: Pallett Noir, SU Classic Black
Accessories: Copics, Coluzzle, punch, M's dew drops, ric rac ribbon

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

See you soon
