End of the Year Thank You Cards




I really had a lot of fun making these end of the school year Thank You cards for the twins' Pre-K teachers. 



I used the girl version of the Nerdy Pencils images by 2 Cute Ink. I colored the images with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers (colors & pin-able palette below).

I used papers from the Doodlebug Design Back to School 6x6 Paper Pad. I cut the "thanks" on the Gemini machine and added Clear Sparkle Pen and Glossy Accents to it. 


On the inside I printed one of my favorite sentiments for teachers. This one is from the Silhouette Design store. I wrote a note to the teachers in the blank portion of the card and had the girls sign the cards as well.

New Mom - Mother's Day Card

Wowsers! I can't believe it's been over 2 MONTHS since I've written a blog post. Talk about slacking off...

Today I am sharing a Mother's Day card that I made for my SIL. She just had her first baby earlier this month (I'm finally an Aunt! Woo Hoo!!). 

I used the image Baby Snuggle Kaylee by Some Odd Girl


I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. The card shape and all the background pieces were made on the Silhouette. I cut the flowers with the Gemini and the Die'sire Nature mini dies.  I added a layer of Crystal Clear Sparkle pen to them to give them a little shimmer and finished them off by putting a little Nuvo Drop in the center of each one.

Spectrum Noir March Challenge


Hey there, I'm just sharing my creation for the Spectrum Noir March challenge. This month the theme is Anything Goes, but there is an optional sketch to use in your creations as well. 

I made this card following the sketch. The image is from Some Odd Girl. I colored her with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and added some Crystal Clear Sparkle Pen as well. 

Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers Used:

Skin: TN3 FS9 FS7 FS1
Hair: IG10 IG8 BGR5 
Eyes: EB3 EB2
Clothes: CR11 CR8 CR7 PP5 PP4 PP2



I added a doily and some ribbon and flowers to make it a little extra special. This one was going to my friend who has 3 boys. I always try to make her cards extra girly and pretty since she is surrounded by trucks and boys, lol.

It's A Girl!

So many people I know are having babies! Not me! I've done the baby thing. I am really looking forward to meeting and snuggling all these new babies once they get her though.

Today I am sharing the card I made for my Sister-in-Law's baby shower. As you can probably guess, she is having a girl. And I am SUPER excited that I am FINALLY FINALLY going to be an Aunt! 


I used one of the adorable new giraffe images from Scrapper's Delights on the card. This one is called Baby Giraffe. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers (colors below). 

Since this card wasn't going to be mailed I was able to add a lot of fun details to it, like the shaker rattle (Silhouette Design Store file) and all the flowers.
