Easter Friend

Hello there!  I'm hosting for the last time over on the A Day for Daisies blog today.  I'm really going to miss being a part of this crazy-talented design team, but I feel blessed for having the opportunity to design cards with Tammy's beautiful images for the past year and a half. 

The weather has been really beautiful here lately.  So, I couldn't help but create an Easter card with this cute image.

Hello there!  It's my turn to host over on the Kennedy Grace Creations blog today.  I've used a fabulous rose stamp on my card.  It's by Kennedy Grace Creations and it's called Splendid Rose.

I've used some texture paste and a Tim Holtz stencil and some Heidi Color Shine to make the brick looking background.  And the roses were stamped in Versamark and embossed with silver embossing powder.  And then I used water color pencils and a water brush.

Shakers for my planner

Hello there!  I'm excited to share some shakers I made for my planner.  I'm also the host over on the Kennedy Grace Creations blog today. 

The first shaker I made using some cut apart pages from a Crate Paper pack called Hello Love.  I used a photo sleeve along with my fuse tool and some fabulous sequins from Kennedy Grace Creations.  Sorry about the glare in this photo.  It was hard to get a great shot. 

And the second one I used a black and white photo of my husband and I.
