My "MIMI" Fix

If you have followed my blog, many of you know that one of my favorite images to color involves "MIMI' from Penny Black.  Well, she's back!

I have two cards that I'm going to share.  You will notice that when I make my cards they usually don't have a sentiment.  I like to make cards and have them ready for any occasion and then I can finish the card when I need it. I have been playing with some new Pinecone Press Papers, plus my scrap bins. 
Hope you enjoy!

With Sympathy

Tonight I needed to make a Sympathy card for someone at my church, so before I put it in the mail I thought I would share.

Front of Card

Inside Sentiment

This card was made with the Sizzix Fancy Frames Flip-its die.  I love the way these dies work.  I used double sided paper and added edge pieces from a Martha Stewart punch.  The card really didn't photograph as well as I would have liked, but maybe that' because I used my cell phone camera.  Hope you enjoy.

(I may try and re-photograph again tomorrow)

Thanks for Stopping

You really need to visit this bog.

I have been following one of my favorite blogs this weeks and really would encourage everyone to hop on over  here and visit Amy's blog. All three of the designers are so talented and I have fallen in love with the new releases. The images are so much fun. Also, if you leave comment for Amy, she is doing some great give-a-ways.

Easy Peasy Flowers

This week I've been making some final touches on re-arranging my tables and supplies in my scrapbook room. As always when I clean I find extra things that are tucked away.  So, when I came across pre-stamped images to color, I started working on some of those this week.  These three flowers are so simple and add that special pop of color to a simple paper.  Using a Martha Stewart border punch, I added a little interest to the paper edge and there you go... a fun, simple card.

Hope you have a great week......


Apple Basket

Here's another favorite image that I want to share.  
As many of you know I love just about anything 
Mo Manning.
This little girl has that super heavy basket of apples and her oh so curly hair.
I went to my scrap papers and selected a few that just felt like this image and then 
I picked my marker colors to go with the paper.
Hope you like and enjoy.

Note To Self

Tonight I wanted to share a card that I colored with Copic Makers and then used my new paper pad from Echo Park.  The collection is "Note To Self", which I think seems to have a Retro feel.  The Digi stamp is from Some Odd Girl.  I love this line of stamps and all the 'big' eyes that the girls have.  I chose one of my favorite hair colors, which somewhat set the tone for the card. She's just a little 'sassy' .

Copic Markers; E000, E01,E11,R20,YR04,R07,YR09,R24,E19,B32,B34,B37,E81,E84,BG90,BG93,BG96,BG99,E43,E44,E47,
Spice-Mint, Echo Park - Note To Self, Close To My Heart - Just the Ticket Stamps.

Hope you have a GREAT weekend.
