Mushroom sitting

This cute little miss is from Lemon Shortbread, that I've colored with prismas and gamsol.  The upper corner is a die cut, as well as the green foliage, to which I've added flowers and a bow.   The mushrooms at the bottom corners are brads, along with the three at the top side.   I've added a few punched butterflies, and put a little gem in the center, as well as in the center of the flower in her hair.   All in all, I thought she turned out pretty darling -- hope you do, too.

Hello, birdie . . .

This cutie pie comes from Whimsy, and if I'm not mistaken, the artist is Sylvia Zet.   I've used a corner die cut here, and then put pearls on them, along with attaching pearls to the strip behind my image, which has some dotted swiss paper on the section, along with a strip of lace.  I've used a filgree die cut to add the white swirls, and attached the blue flowers with a large pearl brad in the center.  A vellum style butterfly with pearls completes this creation.

Pocket pooch

When I saw this cute digital of Sherri Baldy's, I knew I just had to have it -- isn't this little pooch just adorable, ensconced in its designer bag?   I've layered the image and rounded the corners, tucking a lacy doily behind.   Gems were added to the corners, along with the Smile die cut.   There's a strip of lace (you'll have to look close, or enlarge the photo) under the swiss dot ribbon, then I've added flowers and a couple paw print brads.  Thanks for coming in to view my card !!

Daisies and friend

Another sweet daisy card, but this time around, I'm using a digital from Di's Digi Designs.   I've colored this cute bear with prismas, and after coloring the daisies, I added stickles for the sparkle, so the daisies would match the 3-D daisies I added to the card.   The grass is a die cut, the butterflies were done with a punch, then a gem added to the centers.   A couple layered doilies with a little gingham ribbon bow and voila, a cute summertime card.

Spring daffodil

This bunny comes from Whimsy, designed by Lee Holland.    I've colored with prismas, and added a ladybug button to the leaf, but the stamp does already have a ladybug in that spot -- I just wanted to give it a more 3-D look.   I added a white picket fence die cut, and threaded green ribbon thru, adding the flowers, of which the two smallest flowers have brad centers.   Candi-dots are added at the upper corner with foam dots for more dimension.  Some sparkly gems and layered doilies complete my card design.

Daisies galore !

This Lacy Sunshine image is adorable with her apparent green thumb, when it comes to growing daisies.  I've colored this image with prismas, then carried on the daisy theme with 3-D stickers from Recollections.   As you can see peeking out a bit, I used daisy background paper as well as tucking a couple layered doilies behind.   A pretty tied bows tops it off, as well as a coordinating butterfly.   Hope anyone that has a flower garden is as successful as this cutie-pie.

Isobel loves flowers

This digital gal is Isobel from Crafty Sentiments Designs, that I've colored up with prismas.   I've continued the rose theme in her basket to a couple of the corners and used a corner die cut for some foliage.  It's hard to see, but I've put a strip of mesh drywall tape behind the image, and then ran the polka dotted ribbon thru the middle over it.  I've added a butterfly, some pearls and then the sentiment to complete this creation.   Thanks so much for coming in to view.
