This card was made for a friendship swap hosted by Chris, who just so happened to be my swap partner.  I used a cute image called Garden Boots by We Are 3.

To make the card, I used a black base topped with a SU Pretty in Pink panel and some DP from the Backyard Table collection of a Recollections paper pack.  MFT Die-namics Blueprints #27 were used, along with some enamel dots and various Copics for color.

I hope you like your card, Chris!

It's so hard to believe that my oldest granddaughter, Lucy, just turned 13!
With her being a new teenager, I wanted to find an image for her card that I could make into more of a card for a teen, and not just a little girl. I think this image called "Cool Lolly" by The Paper Shelter, is perfect for the look I was trying to get.

Besides the's what else was used for the card.

MFT - All Occasion Sentiments
MFT - Fishtail Flag Frames Die-namics
MFT - Zig Zag Stitched Oval STAX die-namics
Copics - various colors
SU - Perfect Plum card stock

Well, it's that time of year again!  My favorite holiday and season. I want to share the Halloween card I made to send out this year.

Isn't this the cutest haunted house??  I found it on Ebay but don't know who the manufacturer is that makes it. The house, moon, bats and greeting all came in the set of dies. The only other thing that was used to make the card was the card stock and TONS of adhesive. :)  I used Stampin UP's Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, and So Saffron for card stock.

I hope you all have a wonderful HALLOWEEN!
