Soft Sky and White Azaleas

Happy Memorial Day Weekend my friends!  Hope you have some fun planned!  Richmond is beautiful and green with lots of popping colors in May!  It’s the most beautiful month other than fall in my opinion.  One of the things I love most are the Azaleas.  The bright colors are gorgeous but I also love the white Azaleas.  I wanted to try coloring a white flower.  I used gray tones on this one.  I used lavender shadows on another to see which one looked more real.  I’m not sure I’ve decided which looks more real but I like the way this one turned out.

We had a rainy day on Thursday and I was in need of a day for myself so I decided to sit down and make cards all day!  I had lots of new toys and I had lots of stamped images on my desk that I had colored but not put on cards yet.  Mostly I used the colored images to make the cards.  This is one of them.  You can purchase it in my Etsy Shop.

Watermelon Best Thoughts

Hope you’re all having a nice relaxing weekend.  I had a few minutes to play with some new stamp sets and paper today so I sat down and did some “coloring” and then put it on a card to share.  What a fun set this is and such great bright paper colors!

Pistachio Sweet Treat Blast From the Past

Anyone remember this set?  It was from one of the first years I started stamping!  Its much more fun to color it with Copics now.  I had no idea what to do with it back then! LOL  My hubby’s favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip so this reminded me of him!

You Make My Heart Happy

Happy Easter weekend, everyone!  I know this card doesn’t look very Eastery, does it?!  Well I didn’t need it for Easter, I needed it to tell my son how much I love him and his family!  They’ve been stationed here at Fort Lee since January 4th and it’s been SOOO great having them close!  Especially since I hadn’t met his newest son (my newest grandson) that was born September 1st.  What a cutie!

I was reading in my journal the other day and came across when my son was turning 4 (many years ago!).  It just so happens that his son is turning 4 in another week and that really seemed to blow me away for some reason.  I had written in the journal entry that my son “makes me so happy” and also realized my current ringtone for him is (You Make Me) “Smile”!   If you were able to follow those scattered thoughts, you are amazing!  Anyway, it all comes down to the fact that I wanted to tell my son a few heartfelt things and so I made him this card!  Oh, and yes, it’s a CASE from SU!
