My First Create a Critter card

I made this card with the Create a Critter cricut cartridge for a co-workers birthday. She keeps it on her bookshelf in her office :-)

Mother's Day card

Kinda late at posting :-) but here is the Mother's day card I made for my mom. I used a dollar stamp for the image and sentiment that I got at JoAnns and colored it with Water Color pencils.

Just Cause little Snail

I just felt like making a card and didn't have a reason so I made this adorable little snail. Also, it's colored with copics but it's not copic paper it's just regular CTMH cardstock so it ran a little in a few places but I thought it was still cute enough to share :-) The paper is also CTMH and the ribbon is SU. I used the CTMH distressing inks on the edges.

Close up...

June Jackpot Days - Close to my heart

This is too good to pass up! Sale ends June 30th!!!

Exciting News!!!!

So last friday I got really exciting news! I got accepted to attend the Copic certification class in July! This class is mostly offered to store owners, designers, etc. Those that are not one of those can be waitlisted and if there happens to be room, you can be choosen. So I filled out the application about a month ago, sent my blog address and examples of my work as requested hoping that maybe just maybe I'd get selected. Well on friday, I got the call that I had indeed been accepted to attend and all I needed to do was fill out the registration and pay the fee.

I'm so VERY excited about this. I haven't had my copics long but I love them to pieces. I get so inspired by other peoples work and how well they color. I also kept seeing the copic certified buttons on peoples blogs and it just really got me interested in learning more. So many of you have left me wonderful comments about my work and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Many of you that follow me, I also follow and are inspired by. I can only hope that I can be an inspiration to others as well.

So the class is on July 11th in Irvine and I just cant wait!

1st Birthday Invites

I made these for a 1st Birthday. If you look down a little further to my "Invites" post, you'll see a jungle baby shower themed invite. Well the baby was born and turned 1 and I was asked to make the bday invites for the same little one I had previously made baby shower invites for :-)

Baby Shower Card

I made this card for a Co-Workers Baby Shower. Some of the other women in the room knew I scrapbooked and requested the card be passed around :-) It was nice to hear the WOW's from people I work with on a regular basis.

My DD's Bday card for my Brother

My DD (5 1/2) Jordan also made a card for my brother. She usd a CTMH stamp for the boy then hand drew the wheelchair behind it. I think this was her most creative card and I didn't help her one bit! You can't really tell from the picture but the piece under the cake is actually embossed as well. Again she also did that on her own. :-)

Birthday Card

I made this card for my little brother's 26th birthday. He is handicap so I wanted to make it fun and colorful yet simple. I colored the image with Watercolor pencils.

More Mother's Day Cards I made for Co-Workers
