Happy Birthday Jacen!

Another Great Grandson having a birthday in June.  This is his card.  It is another Magnolia, one of my favorites for little boys.  It is colored with Copic Markers and I used Doodlebug papers on it.  I love their designs for children's cards.  Here is a photo of Jacen.  I think he will be 5 yr. old.

Corrosive Challenge #150-Not Too Shabby!

Happy Memorial Day weekend!  Here in the US we remember those men and women of the Armed Forces who have given their lives to keep us safe.

Our Corrosive challenge this fortnight is Not Too Shabby!  To me that is vintage or distressed.  I chose to distress all my papers and used a cute LOTV image.  It is colored with Copic Markers.  Hope you join us.

Corrosive Challenge: Flowers, Bling and Doilies

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!  Hope all of you are enjoying your day!
I did this card with a Tickled Pink image that I really like.  I did use flowers and covered her bouquet with glitter but it is not showing up.  We were to use Flowers, Bling and Doilies and to use at least two of the three items.  I also used stickles on her headband and her shoes.  Our sponsor this  month is Tickled Pink Stamps.  Check them out, they have some really cute images.

Outlaws C/P Challenge

Outlawz C/P Challenge  today is Mothers Day or much loved female.  I used a Saturated Canary image and colored with my copic markers.  I had this post finished last night and scheduled and of course with the new blogger nothing happened so here I am rewriting it.

I've been at the hospital with my husband for the last two days and we are both exhausted.  Wed. all day in the ER and yesterday all day waiting for some surgery.  The machine that zaps the kidney stones is only there on Wednesday so since yesterday was Thurs. they had to push the kidney stone up into his only kidney and put a stint in until next Wed. when they will use the laser and zap it so we have to do this all over again next Wed.  Growing old is NOT fun.  lol!!
Have a great weekend.
