Spring Birthday

It's my instructors birthday next Monday and  we are having a little party for her so I offered to make the card.  She's all positive energy and things like that so I thought I'd make her a happy, bright sunshiney spring card!

Better with Brusho

I made this card for a lady I teach bridge to that unfortunately got into a little skiing accident the other week.  Luckily she wasn't too hurt but has to rest for a few weeks.  Anyhow hope this card cheers her up!  The card was coloured with Scarlett Brusho.

Michael Strong Spring Blog Hop

Time for another blog hop -- this one is to celebrate spring!

To make the background for this card I first embossed Mike's small flower in clear on white paper.  Then I tore a sheet of paper and alternatively sponged on Tim Holtz Faded Jeans and the new Cracked Pistachio.  Then I stamped the flower in both Pistachio and Jeans over top and spritzed a bit of water on top.

Winter Challenge Card

The Winter Challenge for the Michael Strong yahoo group was to make a card that was all white.

I applied some clear embossing paste to some white paper with a heart stencil.  Then I painted some burlap white and put Mike's small hearts embossed in white on top.  I added some pearls and a die cut and then to finish the card off I lightly sprayed with some glimmer mist.
