Pinterest case and Diane

Diane Squires...my friend from Ga...she actually made the two hour drive and spent a day in my Craft House....she was suppose to get something done  but that didn't happen...we talked too much and went out to lunch...told her to bring her mom when she comes back into town...such a cool mom....Saturday Monika Davis had her meeting (Di and I are a couple of her adoptees since our downlines are not close by...mine is in OH)...and the swap was to be a pinterest or magazine case....I used the top one and created the bottom one also....I should have used a marker on the bottom one to connect the leaves....the rhinestones are colored with permanent marker...

 My buddy....Diane...she was so kind as to let me stay with her overnight..sure wish she was closer....lol
I had a natural composition paper make n take ...which I will post later in the week....hope they extend that paper ..it is ssssooo cool.....Have a blessed day!!

Another two Zentangle ...Secret Garden

One of my downlines....Diane ...comes to all of my classes...and she is ssssssoooo talented ...I wanted to send her a wonderful card...so I sent her the first one...I wanted her to see the difference if you added more black...how it pops...both are the same design except for the way I did the zentangle.....it seems that you need to use a block design stamp or one that has some lines or is completely open......the design is from Sandy M's blog....

spring and pinwheel card

I've had a huge disappointment in my life but  have prayed a lot to God and he has helped me move on....if you can't have open communication with someone, no matter how much they are loved it will cause heartache....so much for my thoughts for the day...let's move onto the positive gifts from God....allergy season is here and I am sure I am not the only one suffering...the tornado of 11 took my shed and several flowering gorgeous plums....they use to be behind that tulip tree you see first....what is left is coming back.....as should my dogwood and others...

Finally used the pinwheel die..used patio party, a flat toothpick (find that works better than the rounded on on cards...)...attached with glue dots...used the primrose and pool party

Flowering Flourishes/Doily stamp

Love how this card turned out...this was definitely a happy dance in my Craft House...it is lovely in person...the photo doesn't do it justice..
  For this card the following was used:
                              *Flowering Flourishes set
                              *Doily stamp
                              *Elements of Style stamp set
                              *Quint-essential stamp
                              *Versamark ink
                              *Real Red ink
                              *Black embossing powder
                              *White embossing powder
                              *Black card stock (base and scrap for middle of doily)
                              *Whisper white cardstock 4 x 5 1/4
                              *Dimensionals (pop up quint essential piece)
                              *Embossing buddy
                              * 1 3/4 scallop circle punch

When this is embossed the doily just pops off the page and switching colors really makes it pop!!

Fun in the Sun layout

Did this beach scene a couple of years ago....title was MDS
This and the layout from yesterday were done with the shaving cream technique for the water.....below are some closeups...the white clouds on the blue were with a scallop template moved around with white craft to show up the clouds...
designer paper and punch out for the babe on the towel...

the shells were punched and cut out and crystal effects was used...

sand was done the same way as yesterdays...

the baby's blanket was embossed then sponged...and then edged cut to look like a woven blanket....

umbrella was pennants punched on end with circle and popped...

sun put in the scallop punch twice (rotate and punch again...put on computer paper to punch the second time....with temp adhesive...)
