My jaw dropped when I saw the beautiful flowers that she created. OMGosh ladies, they are amazing.

You "meet" the most generous people on YouTube. Thanks Deb! I love them. Check out the video I made showing these flowers here.

April Tag Swap - Roses & Flowers Theme

This is the tag I created for my April Tag Swap for Butterfly Kisses. The theme is Roses & Flowers, plus we had to incorporate fabric into the tag. I used a suede leaf and some satin ribbon for one of the roses. I had a great time creating this tag. The musical notes image used in the background is from Prima.

A step by step video on how I created this tag can be found here.

Take Time For...

I made this card for a scrap friend of mine. Majority of the card was made from scraps laying around my desk. The image is a C.C. Designs Stamp: Kiki La Rue that can be found at AllThatScraps. The mug stamped image is from Hero Arts: What's Perking.

The patterns on both mugs matched perfectly. I colored both images with my copic markers, mica powders and stickles. The flowers are from Prima (white) and Bazzill (magenta). Lastly I used my favorite Liquid Applique in white to act as the whip cream or froth in the coffee. Enjoy.
