Friendship Blooms and Grows

Here's an adorable Lemon Shortbread image today.  She's just too cute.  I used some great die cuts with her to finish off this card.  I got this image back when she was being sold by Sweet Pea stamps, but now you can find her images at her Etsy store HERE

Have a beautiful day everyone!

Sweetest Girl, Be Free

Here's a great image from Lili of the Valley.  These girls are just TOO sweet. I love the dandelion she is holding and I got this awesome dandelion die cutter sometime ago.  I added some sweet sentiments, Sweetest Girl and Be Free, which makes me think of her thoughts as she blows the seedlings off the dandelion.
Hope your week is going great.  Cheers, Holley

Gorjuss Girl gift box

One of my more recent purchases was a die cut system that would cut out and make a Gorjuss Girl.  As I am sure you know, I just LOVE Gorjuss Girls.  Here's my first one, sorry the lighting is bad on the photo, it's a gift box that I decorated using the sweet die cut along with two large flowers and then some great papers.  I made this cute gift box and filled it with cards for a dear member of my church who is going through some major medical problems right now.

I thought a little spring Gorjuss Girl would cheer her up!

School Girl

Here's a fun new image from artist Sandra Caldwell today.  This cute girl is 1512 School Girl.  I just had to pick her because of the big long thick pony tail.  Ahhh, that is SO me.  Very much so.  I colored her up with dark brown hair (though lol, my hair was way more white in there than I would care to admit!)

I must say I have been "Back to School" now as I just too a job with the school district.  I know I have mentioned it before, but it's been quite a hoot going to an elementary school every morning by 7:15 and seeing the little kids all day.  How fun is that!  As the card says "So VERY important!"

Blueberries

Here's a great Bestie image from artist Sherri Baldy that I am using with some wonderful Paper Temptress Papers to create this great card.  I think the papers just shimmer and the image just pops right off the front of the card.

This great paper is premium black glossy paper.  I then added a layer of glamour gold glossy.  The image is printed on Neenah Solar White Classic Crest paper.  I added some wonderful lace ribbon on top along with some adorable polka dot purple buttons.

I hope this card gives you a smile today!

Cheers, Holley

Good in Green

Sharing this wonderful image from The East Wind.  I just love her amazing stamps.  Here's one that she shared with us a while back and I had to make a card with it using some great designer paper from India.  I paired it with some bling I got at my local craft store.

I hope you are having a great week so far.  Many blessings!

Embrace each day

I thought this cute card was just perfect for Spring time.  She's from PpinkyDolls.  TOO cute.  I adore these sweet stamps.  The weather has been so very nice and we are so enjoying it right now, it's almost to the point where it's getting hot in the afternoons.  The allergens are just killing people though as the trees and grass is blooming and causing many people pain.

I hope you are all having a great week.  Hugs!

She's a cutie

Can you believe we are already on the week of Easter?  the month is nearing half over and the school year is actually approaching it's end?  what? Well I made this cute with a little girl because now that I am working at a school I see these little darlings every day. 
I hope you are having a great April and that everyone has some plans for Easter weekend. I know the schools here will be closed on Friday so this week will be short.
