FSS Sneak Peak!!!!

Good morning! I am just soooooo excited to share with you a sneak peak of a new line of images that will be in the FSS store very soon! Tracey has created a line of Hummingbirds with flowers!!! These are amazing! My card is rather clean and simple as I just didn't really want to take away from the image! I used Photoshop to combine the FSS Hummingbird and Columbine with the FSS Paper Pricking frame. I added the embossed layer which is a Sizziz folder. My "red" paper was created in Photoshop as well to match the colors in the flower. I created a peg bow and once that was in place decided that I was done...I hope you like it and go check out the store as it is comming SOON! Thanks for stopping in and taking a peek...believe me, you will see more cards from me using this line of images! Have a great day today!

FSS Parrot Tulip

Hello and happy hump day! I have been busy the last few days working the COLD! Yeah even though it is spring here, the weather has been NOT so spring like! We are expecting a frost tonight so I hope all my hard work does not got to naught. I have been creating a memory garden that will contain perennials from my late friend. She was an avid flower of the many interests her and I shared. Her brother has been so kind to let me take any of the plants I want from her garden and plant them in my memory garden. I am almost done...and because they are all perennials I am not real worried about them getting nipped tonight. I did bring many of her tulips...which made me want to create a flower card tonight. And Fred She Said designs has the perfect image! I used the FSS Parrot Tulip pre-colored image...and did a little photoshop magic with it. I combined 3 of the images into one bouquet of flowers. Cut the image out with an oval nestability and then matted that with a labels 10 nestability. The embossed background is the Scallop and Loop Ribbon folder from Sizzix. The stick pin base and adorning pearls are from Pizzazz well as the gingham ribbon. I have been waiting for just the right card to use my stick pins. The pin was actually an ivory pin that I colored with a copic marker to match the ribbon...did the same with the ivory beads on the pin. Well, I am off to play some more...hope your day was a blessed one and thank you so much for stopping in to see me! My next project is to make some roses with a FSS SVG be sure to check back!

My First FSS DT Card!

Happy May Day! I hope you are all planning some outside activities today if weather permits! We are having a wonderfully nice spring day here and it has really been a long time in coming with all the rain storms we have had in the last two weeks! Finally I may get to be outside with my grandbabies! Well I am happy to debut my first card as a FSS DT member! Since it was May Day I thought a flower card would be sooooo appropriate. I chose to use the FSS Daffodil Cardfront Set. OMG Tracey is an awesome artist! This set has all the work done for you! She has colored this set in 3...YES, pink and purple...ready to go on the front of a card. I touched my cardfront up with a little bit of diamond stickles and some teardrop flatback pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty...I have been waiting for the right card to use these on and I think they look so perfect on this one! These teardrop flatback pearls come in 2 sizes and can be colored with your Copic markers! You have to try them! Well, I hope you enjoy my creation and hope you are having an awesome day today. Thanks tons for stopping by to see me!
