 I always liked cactus plants. They remind me of my mothers plants that she had on top of her sewing machine, in front of the sunny window in the kitchen. This card was made for my stamping friend, Pat.

This stamp is from a set by Gina K Designs called Your own kind of Beautiful and the sentiment is a stamp by V.I.P.'s that I have had forever! :)
Besides the stamps, these are the other products that were used.

MFT - Stitched Rounded Rectangle STAX
SU - Really Rust and Always Artichoke card stock
SU - DP from the Pattern Pack 11
Copics - Various colors
SSS - Wavy Scallop Stitches die
Enamel dots

Hope you all are having a great day!

Until next time...

This is the first card I've made using a digital image already colored. Although it was really easy to whip this card up, I felt like I was "cheating" not coloring it myself. Although it still is a handmade card.

The image is a digital colored image by Fabrika Fantasy called "First Flower"
Also used to make my card are these items...

MFT - Stitched Rectangle Scallop Edge Frame Die-namics
MFT - Upsy Daisy Die-namics
SU - Basic Black, Green Galore, Brocade Blue, More Mustard card stock
Enamel Dots

Fabrika Fantasy was one of the vendors who sponsored the #123 challenge on The Aloha Challenge this week for Kitty Bee Designs. A big thank you to them for sharing their images with the design team!

Until next time...

Just wanted to show everyone my July Spotlight card I made for Kitty Bee Designs using their adorable ladybug image called Love Bug Baby which can be purchased in their Etsy shop!

It's nice to have a few baby cards on hand. Especially one that isn't gender specific.  Besides the digital image, I card also used the following products to complete it.

American Crafts - Crimson Paper Pad DP
SU - Basic Black card stock
MFT - Baby's Bib Die-namics
MFT - Baby Onesie Stamp Set (welcome greeting)
1/4" Black plaid ribbon
Copics - Various colors
Red enamel dot

I think with very little change, this could be an awesome invitation for a baby shower or invitation for a little one's 1st birthday party.

Until next time...
