FSS Emma the Skipper

Good morning to you all! Thank you to everyone who stopped by yesterday for the FSS Blog Hop and left love! Good luck to you all...and if have not gone on the hop, it is still going on through June 3 so please join in the fun, there are some fabulous prizes for ONE lucky winner! My post for the HOP is here.

For today's card, I wanted to share my creation using Tracey's newest image...Emma the Skipper! Oh she is so cute and Tracey has her in colored and uncolored digi sets. I have been using a lot of Tracey's colored images as she does so well with coloring them digitally and they make for quick card creations! My frame is an svg file that I had purchased a few years ago from Mary Powell...Mary no longer sells her files but I love to use what I have...of course, I cut it out with my LYNX. All the flat back rhinestones are from Pizzazz Aplenty and the tiny little white flowers in the lower right hand corner are actually residue from a corner punch...I just could not waste them! OHHHH geez...guess I should show you the card!!!
I hope you are having a great beginning to the Memorial Day weekend...I hope to get outside in a bit and do some more flower other passion! Thanks so much for stopping in and for leaving me some love...I will be sure to stop in to see all of you who were so kind to comment a little later on today. Have a blessed day!

I used my new LYNX cutter to cut out another frame like the previous card on my blog and used Tracey's The Wheelbarrow Colored Set found here in the FSS store. I added some sparkle to the image with Stickles. The flower is one I made using some of my flower and leaf punches.

Birthday Card Request

Hello! It has been crazy for me the last week...put in a lot of time for work over the weekend so that really put the damper on playing with my new LYNX! BUT, I had a birthday card request from my neighbor. She had a picture of her mother and herself that she wanted me to frame and put on a is the card I came up with:

I had decided to try my hand at an easel card. Let me give you a few deets about the card...the frame is one that I cut on my new cutter...created by Paulo. He has the most awesome cut files on his web site...if you have a cutter and are interested, please pay him a visit and leave some love! The sentiment was computer generated and cut out with one of the Fancy Tags from Spellbinders. The bling on the front of the card and on the inside had been purchased from Big Lots...Colorbok adhesive flourishes...2 came in a package for a buck...I think I am going to go back for more of those! Also on the front of my card you will see the cute little hummingbird...that is an image from FSS...Wee Hummingbird Colored...isn't he just the cutest? On the inside of my card, I used various Martha Stewart punches to create some interest, added some more of those flourishes and another of the Wee Hummingbirds. LOL now, I have to create an envelope for this card! It is 5 1/2 square so I don't have anything that size...wish me luck! Well I want to thank you for stopping in...and a special thanks to those who leave some love! I hope you had a wonderful day today and tomorrow will be just as grand! I plan to do some visiting tomorrow and will surely check up on all of you! Thanks again!
