a card for Kim

My sister in law Kim's birthday deserved a card with a sense of humor so when I came across this little lovely I knew she would appreciate this humorous image. This is the sentiment on the inside.....

A close up of the silver bangles and the glittery feathers in her boa

And look at this beauty's makeup - blush all over the face, blue eyeshadow and lipstick on her teeth and outside the lips - just like a real barfly would look - and take note of the hip pink streaks in her hair - yeah she's a real looker!!

My niece's daughter (my great niece? grand niece?) turned one at the beginning of the month - isn't she just beautiful? Her birthday gala was Hawaiian themed hence the lei. She was sucking the juice out of the fruit salad and it was dribbling down her chin.

I need to photo shop the log out of this picture - it looks like she has some funky horns coming out of her head!

Fresh from a nap, Leah with her gramma Kim and great gramma Sally.

Would be a perfect picture if not for the Binky but still a beautiful subject!!

Busy busy!!

I had a little procedure today at the doctor's office so I took the rest of the day off to recuperate and properly medicate myself so I would feel no pain as I am a huge wimp~ part of my "therapy" was to make some cards.

This little sweetie (Cupcake Anya) is for my niece Emily's daughter Leah's first birthday. I just love this image - it is perfect for birthdays!! I used some of that fun Washi tape from The Greeting Farm - this is from the Brown Coffert collection. LOVE IT!! So versatile and fun to play with!

This is Summer from The Greeting Farm (yes I almost have all of them!!). I made this card for my sister in law, Kathleen's birthday. The bow isn't really as crooked as it looks in this picture.
I popped Summer up off the card with some pop dots - the square button is from Stampin' Up! I backed it with some glittery paper.....I plan on entering this card in the Monday Mania challenge over on Club Anya.

for Shawn

My poor "sister" Shawn needed some exploratory surgery today so I made her this incredibly witty, cute card!! I found this image and the sentiment from the blog - CREATE WITH TLC - she has several free digi stamps every day!!

I even used the Washi tape I picked up from TGF - if you are not familiar with this great stuff be sure to check out The Greeting Farm website and order yourself some!!

A new clock...

My kitchen clock finally died so I created one that matched the border - was very easy to do- the hardest part was getting the face off without ruining my manicure.... here is a close up -

for Jenny's August package....

My NSSS Jenny works in a pre-school and will start back to work soon - I thought that hand santizers were something she could really get some use out of so I altered a couple of them.
Here is close up of the bow I made - turned out okay...
Here is the other one - I ran out of ribbon on the bottom so I threw on a flower and some cute little orange buttons I bought at Michael's.

And this it card I whipped up for her - I used Rock Star Anya - she's really fun!!

Here is a close up of Anya - her pants are a neon lime green but they are not showing up very well in these photos.

A card for Gramma Lin

My gramma Lin turned 94 on Saturday so I made her a card using this super cute digi stamp from TGF - its Cupcake Anya and my friend Rachel designed her.......isn's she adorable??
