Happy Birthday Laura!

This is the card I made for my sister for her birthday.

My Hello Cupcake Pure Innocence was stamped, colored with Copics, paper pieced, and popped up on to my card.  Diamond Glaze was applied to the sprinkles and her shoes.  I wanted to personalize my card, so I made a banner and stamped her name.

Stamps:  My Favorite Things-Pure Innocence Hello Cupcake and Big Greetings,  Jo-Ann-Alphabet
Ink:  Versafine and Memento
Paper:  Wasau, October Afternoon
Misc: Copics, Diamond Glaze, pop up dies, My Favorite Things Fish Tail Die and Scallop Border Die

Happy Easter

Happy Easter!  I hope everyone had a nice day and the Easter Bunny was good to them and left lots of candy.  Yesterday, my sister came over for a craft-a-palooza.  We were having so much fun that I went home with her and spent the night.  Today, we continued our crafting while watching  a Love Boat Marathon on tv.  March was a very busy month for her, she took her students to Washington DC, finished the yearbook for her school, sewed a million (actually 13 A Line dresses for a school play), ordered/paid for 350 tickets for Grad -Venture at Universal, not to mention still working and being a wife and mom.  We haven't been able to spend anytime together, so this was a well deserved weekend for us.  

Lately, I've been struggling with creativity.  Everything I make takes forever and just doesn't look good.  Believe it or not, this card took me two days to finish as I wasn't satisfied with the finished product, or should I say the 10 finished products as that is how many times I took it apart and re-worked it!  Finally, I am finished and satisfied.  On the East Coast, there is only 1 hour and 9 minutes left of Easter, so I made it just in time!
