Flower Pot Card

Longing Tilda and Elegant Roses~~a beautiful mix!!   ENJOY!!
If you use your imagination I followed sketch from LOTV~omitting the grayscale area :))

Whola ~~~ here she is Longing Tilda~~What a BEAUTY!!!

Made a flower pot~~you're on my mind card!!

Simply sliding out message card :)

Close up of Sweet Longing Tilda and those Beautimous Roses!!  Told you that I would be using those again!! Colored with copics and accented with Inkssentials opaque white pen!

Check out these flowers~~ Bev had a tutorial on making these gorgeous flowers!! She stated that her DH helped her :0) YES!!!! I reversed the flower petal crease~~so my petals are inverted while Bev's show them the other way. ALL flower petals and leaves are tipped with TH Distress Ink--corduroy brown

Next is a pic trying to capture the sparkle shimmer mist I used over the entire card.  IRL it just glistens!!

Here is Charleston Tilda sharing a birthday wish for my dear daughter~~KIM on June 3!!! God Bless You Hun!!  I gave her birthday gift early b/c I knew she had time to enjoy today.  Guess what ~I called her later and she is crafting with her new goodies!!  So if you have a chance go and wish her Happiness and Love!!

Colored Tilda with Copics. Added silver spica to her shoes and alittle gold spica in her hair.  The rose on her dress was sparkled with Viva decor Ruby glitter liner.  Her wings were colored with E41 copic and layered with diamond stickles :))  Papers are all shiny and shimmery just like Kim~~SHE IS THE SUNSHINE IN OUR LIFE!!!!  We are so happy she is feeling better :))

The inside is detailed for gifts and messages.  The left pocket held a gift card and some stamped images for Kim to give love to ;))  The right offers a message of LOVE!!  More up close photos to follow!!

My WNW stamps were calling out to me today :)) 
Patricia at Paper Temptress has this really different paper called "Cosmic Coloring Paper"~~~
I won a gift certificate from there and decided to try this paper.  Really really different ~ the paper is shiny, thin and feels slippery~~when using my copics, I found that the ink does not get absorbed into the paper; sooo the blending qualities were very different.  Quite fun tho:))  Check it out!!  So onto my card~~~

Chose the sketch by Bev~~I Just Love this Gal's Work!!! Go >>HERE<< to check her blog out :))
who is Special Guest Sketch Artist this week~~at Pixie Cottage

Meet Gemma and Bella from WNW!! They are the sweetest!!
Few details~~CB swiss dot folder used on scalloped mattings.  Dotted image matting with Broken china stickles.  The green and yellow strip was border punched and embossed with CB vine folder and then swiped with TH broken china distess ink to better see the embossing
Now the inside of my Easel Card. I colored the flower buttons with my copics and added green rhinestones as centers!  Bordered the message area with Spiced Marmalade Stickles

Close up of image~~kinda like the texture the paper gave to the kittens :) Litely dusted edges of image with TH peeled paint distress ink.

Closer look at flower embellishments~~used Sizzix branch w/leaves and tipped leaf edges with Broken China stickles, Paper studio flowers, Jolee's Parcel for flower center as well as a blue brad.  Added sheer green ribbon with dragonfly charm attached and tucked in a flower stem that I got from my daughter for Mom's Day!!

On this photo I tried to capture the shiny different look of copics on the Cosmic Paper

Reaching out for Prayer

Good Morning Everyone---I am reaching out for prayer for my dear daughter~~Kim~~ Crafts by Kim!! She has been down and out with some type of flu this week.  Calling and giving advice each and everyday the nasty bug just kept getting worse.  So after 5 days I visited her with a care package as all Mom's would do!! Went back to work and was sooo bothered that I got home and we decided it was best to go to ER!! 

Wouldn't you know it was her week off of school before summer classes start next monday and TODAY she is to stand up in her cousins wedding. 

Severely dehydrated and they are thinking it is a bacterial type virus --so antibiotics and more drugs to hopefully get her to be able to smile :)

So if you read this send her love and say alittle prayer that she will be able to get thru the ceremony :))

You know when your kids ache--Mom aches doubly!!
