Another birthday we celebrate during the month of May is for my niece Jessica.  She will be 15!!  Heaven help my brother.  Now for her card NO vintage, after all what teenager is into vintage.  So I pulled out my Hannah Lynn digi stamp for this one.
It is an easel card.  I used Copic and atyou Spica markers to color.  Hannah named her "Bookworm Fairy", her wings are sparkly because the atyou markers twinkle.  I used my Cricut to cut the frame.  My DP is from Close to my Heart.  The butterflies are cut with Marianne Design dies.  This is a pic of the inside.

Yes the important part CASH.  Here I used my Cricut with SCAL to cut the font and a Martha Stewart punch.  You can see the butterflies better here, they are layered and I used some bling for that finishing touch.  I will enter this card in Through the Craft Room Door challenge TTCRD01


I created this card for my brother, he is totally into vintage and nautical things.  I didn't want to over do his card so it's rather simple.  I thought the paper and the stamped image gave the feel of the young boy waiting for his favorite ship to return to port.  Hope he likes it.
My DP is Webster Pages and all stamps are from Clear Art Stamps, Sweet Kids collection.  The blue and red on the left side is ribbon.  This is a shot of the inside. 


I am so gratful to have two mother's to make cards for.  So this card is times 2.  I am totally into the vintage look.
I used a Sizzix Bigz die to cut the card.  The DP is from Webster's Pages they have wonderful vintage designs, the flowers are from Bazzil, the push pin is Webster Pages.  Then on the inside....
Crafty Secrets has Clear Art Stamps that again play right to my vintage craving... I used a stamp from their Sweet Kids collection, and colored with Copic marker.  Happy Mother's Day!!

How Time Flys Card

Holly has completed her training as an Esthetician and Electrology Technician.  So I made a card for her.
So many fun items in this card.  The rabbit paper is from Crafty Secrets.  I love their vintage items.  Holly is a big fan of Alice in Wonderland stuff so I had her in mind when I purchased it.  The flowers are from Prima, the butterfly is from Creative Charms.
