Peace on Earth


Hey!

I made this card for my mom. Today is my father's birthday and it's his 10th birthday without him. Time flies and we miss him more each year. My father helt pigeons and raced with them, that's why I wanted to make a card using Lacy Sunshine's Peace on Earth from the Angel Kisses Collection.

The image is colored with Promarkers and I added glitter to her wings. The card is made with white cardstock, 2 dp's, square metal dies, glitter tape, star punch, walnut stain distress ink for the edges, star straw and a string of jute.

There's still plenty of time to enter Lacy Sunshine's Anything Goes challenge for a chance to win some awesome images.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Bushel and a Peck


Hey!

template from Dutchdoobadoo. The lovely background is from Studio light and the heart die cuts are from Noor Design. The lovely banner is made with a brand less die. The little tags are made with corrugated cardstock from a package of cookies.

Angel Star Sprite


Hey!

This challenge is themed "Christmas" and our sponsor is Aurora Wings.

I got to play with this cute image called "Angel Star Sprite" and colored it with Promarkers. I made a little ornament (Ø 7cm) for my sisters Christmas tree. It represents her 4 little angels who are in heaven. In the ball are 4 little wooden stars, one for each child. I hope she likes it. Behind the little angel I added glitter vinyl. Love the effect it has. Sadly it doesn't show well on the photo.

The image is colored with Promarkers and I fussy cut it with a kraft knife. I use this fun little pumpkin box for small hard candy and it will be part of my Halloween decoration every year.
