Birthday Cards

the first one is for a very special lady in my life.  She not only is my friend but also one of my Pastor's.  She haul me everywhere I need to go.  She goes way beyond the call of duty.  She is very special to me...  I thank God for her every day.  So on to the card.  It had to be special and I found these digi's from Jade Dragon so I used them.  She also loves the color purple (that's another thing we have in common)  and bling so I did it up,,,,   The designer paper is scraps that I have had in my stash for ever.  Like I said I am trying to use up all my scraps.  I may never get to use a full sheet of paper again.  LOL!!!!!  I used a black card base that is from Michaels.  I also used a paper doily from my stash...  Same with the bling but is is from Michaels also.   The flowers are from WOC and from my stash.  This was a really fun card to make.  I used my Spectrum Noir and Copics on the digi images.  

This is the second card I made.  It's a ;pt simpler but I thought that the digi and the sentiment said it all so why add more.  I'm not sure who the artist is on this one but I have had it for ever but this is the first time that I have used it.   Again the papers are scraps that I have and the sentiment is stamped on to a Spellbinders label. die....  The ribbon and the lace are from my stash and the card base is kraft card stock from Michaels Colored it with my Spectrum Noir and Copic's pens.  Love to color.....  

Thanks for taking a look and please leave a comment for I do read and appreciate each and every one of them .

A few Cards I have Made

I have decided to try to make at least one Christmas card a month so that I'm not completely behind the eight ball come the end of the year.  I also have colored up some some didgi stamps with my Spectrum Noir and few of my copic pens that I have.  It is so much fun but I sure have a lot to learn on how to get them to look the way I want .  My first card the didgi I do not know who the artist is but I just love her.  She is so innocent looking.  I used more of my Designer paper scraps that I put on Kraft premade cards from Michael's.  The flowers are Wild Orchid Craft flowers.  The pink ones are sprayed with Cotton Candy pink for Lindy's Stamp Gang.  The little flowers I also sprayed with Cotton Candy they are porcelain that I had in my stash. The Sentiment is from Spellbinders and peel off from the UK.   The butterfly is punched out of Designer paper with a Martha Stewart punch.  All the pearl bling is from my stash.  Put Stickles on the flowers and butterfly.

Second card is the Christmas card that I did.  The stamp is one I have had for ages and I can't find the company that made it but I love this stamp and make at least one card from it a year.  Again I colored it with my Spectrum Noir pens and put it on Designer paper scraps.  I'm doing my best to use my scraps first then I need to start using the paper that I am hording so I can have some of the new ones that are coming out.  

 The last one is a Saturated Carny Digi stamp I believe and again I colored it with my Spectrum Noir pens and used designer paper scraps .  The Sentiment is on a spellbinders label and stamp form Fiskers.  The bling is from Michael's.  Tried a new Technique to me on the bear oh my have to do more practicing on that.  LOL!!!!

This one I forgot to rotate.  

Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look.  Please feel free to leave a comment for I do read all of them .  They mean so much to me. 
Have a great day

First Card Made Using My Spectrum Noir Pens

My hubby bought me 72 Spectrum Noir markers for Christmas and this is one of the first Digi that I colored so its not as good as I would have liked but hey it's a learning curve.   I'm not sure who to give credit to for this image for I have it in my Misc Digi file on my computer and didn't get where I got it from so I am so sorry,  The papers I used are some really old scrapes of Designer paper scraps that I have had for ages. I'm trying to get rid of all those pieces of scrap paper that I have laying around.  I hate to throw away anything.  The rose is from Wild Orchid Craft which was in a winning I got from Scrapebooking with ME.  The label is Spellbinders and the thinking of you is a Studio G stamp from Michael's,  So is the flat flowers and the bling and butterfly.  Had a great time doing this card.  Thanks for taking the time to look.  Hope that everyone is staying warm.  When I go up  this morning it was 3 F and I don't know what the temp was with the wind chill Al I know is it's really cold for this part of Tennessee.

 Hugs, Donalda
