Easter '10

I love these colors together! I tried to watercolor the flower, but opted rather to go with the vibrant color of the markers. This Easter really snuck up on me! I didn't color any eggs, or even make a fresh ham. My church had a great Easter service that I was ready for. I guess that is really the most important thing. Thank God He's not in the tomb!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

This card was a lot of fun to make. I enjoy taking things that look like one thing and then making them look like something else. In this case, I punched out 3 hearts and made them into a shamrock! It was so easy!

Happy Valentines Day '10

I'm having to play a little 'catch-up' now. Thankfully, my elbow is feeling okay. Time to get my cards on my blog! I had to make a template for this card. I punched 6 holes in a card, then sponged ink where the holes were to make the scalloped pink areas. Then, I used craft ink to add the hearts. After all that work, I didn't want to take a chance on regular ink not holding it's own on top of the pink ink.
