Wednesday Wowzer Time

20 Jun
Today, I am doing something a little different.  I am using one of the challenge card sketches for a GIFT BAG!
You can find the sketch challenge here:
Here is the sketch:
Here is the gift bag I have created.
The stamp I used to create the flowers is the heart from the set Straight From The Heart.
All of my paper products(not the tissue paper though) are from Canvas Corp.
I spritzed my papers with Tattered Angels Verdigris.  Wow!!  I am so in love with that color!!!
The bright colors are perfect for this project since I am also entering this in the Unity Opportunity Challenge called BRIGHT.
After making this, I am inspired to make more to have on hand for when I need a gift bag at the spur of the moment.
It always seems like I need one and then don’t have time to actually sit and make one in the time frame when I need it!  Do you know what I mean?
Well, I hope you have like this!  I sure do!!!

Mother Daughter Wednesday Wowzer Time

4 Apr
I had a busy work week so far and my daughter was so sweet to try and do my card for this post. while I was at work tonight.
I will show her card after I show you the card I was able to come up with before going to bed.
It’s so much fun to get new stamps in the mail to play with.
I can’t show you this whole set, but I am using one of the sentiments, from this set, for this card.
The set is called Let your Heart Take Flight.
Since the sentiment is supposed to be the star of the card, I kept the rest of the card pretty simple.
Using paper from My Minds Eye Dolled Up and dies from Cheery Lynn Designs…I think the card is perfect for the challenge.  It also will go along with the challenge that is up on the GHWI blog, GHWI Challenge #18.
I had a busy work week so far and my daughter was so sweet to try and do my card for this post.
She tried to focus on the sentiments also, by stamping them on white.
She used the {ippity} set called:  Straight From the Heart.
Here is her card: (She is 13 & I think she did pretty good for her age group!)
So there you have it…a mother and daughter post for you today on this Wednesday Wowzer.

Wednesday Wowzer, with my good friend Roy G. Biv

23 Nov

There are a couple of things in this world that never cease to make me smile.  I am grateful it is a big list.

Aside from the usual things like my hubby and children etc., they are a give for smiles, near the top of my list are:

Polka Dots – ALWAYS & FOREVER (I have no idea why)

Roy G. Biv – (love this guy)

Flowers – (all sorts)

Here is a card based on some of the things that make me smile.

I used the following sets for today’s card:

Time for Friends

Straight from the Heart

I made each one of those flowers from coffee filters.

I don’t drink coffee, but I do buy coffee filters!  Aren’t these flowers great?

I wanted to keep the background simple so the flowers could really stand out.

I used the heart from the Straight to the Heart set and colored it to match the card.

That’s my wow for you today!

Please head on over to I Heart {ippity} and see what the other ladies have made to WOW you.
