Emma’s Shoes Thank You For Crystal!

by Myrna

To know Crystal is to know that she LOVES shoes! The minute I saw this LOTV image, Emma’s Shoes, I knew this was the Thank You for her! She loves “girly” things so once again I had to come up with “girly”! Luckily, we just had a “girly” challenge so I was still in that frame of mind. She likes purple so here is my card.

Here is the inside. I made a little pocket to put some Gift Cards in.

I’ll either write something or find some nice Thank You stamp.

This was the first time I used my Cheery Lynn doily die and I LOVE it!! After I bought it I thought what in the world was I thinking!!! I really like the look it gives a card. I just may get into this “girly”.

I also used Crystal Lacquer on all the shoes and the purse. You can’t really see it but I love it! Of course, my ever helpful guys looked at the card and Drew’s reaction was “who in the world would buy orange shoes”. I informed him they were yellow. I was sure someone out there would. Have you never heard of poetic licence when it comes to cards????? LOL!

Birthday Card For Linda

by Myrna

Just a little update on my birthday card to my cousin Vi. The Rosie with Cake card. A couple posts down. You just got to love family!! She sent me a Thank You card for her birthday card! Also wants to post a thank you when she can get to a computer. Now, that makes all the effort to make a card in colors I know she likes and the trip to the post office to mail it oh so worth it! She puts them on an easel to display them. What a joy to make cards for someone like that. Kudos to you cousin Vi!!!! I did remember but didn’t think of it when I picked the image that my aunt’s middle name was Rose. So made it extra special.

This card is for a friend at Stamp Club whose birthday is in June. I had this image in the back of my mind for her when I bought the stamp. Isn’t that funny how some stamps just speak to you as to whom the card should go to!! I feel that quite often. When there isn’t a human to go with the card I tend to struggle with them more. I like to make the card to what I know someone likes. Enough rambling here’s my card.

LOVE these hAnglar images!!

I never thought I would say this but “pink” is growing on me! LOL It will never replace my “orange” but I can live with it! See, we can all grow and change!

Thanks for visiting and leaving your love!

Have a great weekend! It’s coming soon!

I have never had  images touch me so much as the Sugar Nellie digis Hope, Faith, Grace, Joy, Verity, Connie and of course Nathan. The pure innocence of their expression. Or maybe their names that give us hope in a troubled time. Or maybe that Nathan reminds me of when Drew was young and innocent and the ugliness of the world hadn’t touched him yet. Or the fact that Hope could be our very own Makayla. This image is her twin. All in our family have looked at the image and immediately said “it could be Makayla”! So of course I had to make her a Birthday card using Hope.

I have done something I rarely do and that is use ribbon, flowers, pearls and made a very girlie card. It seemed so fitting for “Hope”. This card was a sheer joy for me to make I “Hope” some of that rubs off on you too.

For the flower I used crinoline and tulle to make it. I have a whole new-found respect for seamstress’! Every time I thought I had the tulle in the wastebasket there it was on my hand again!!! The tutorial is here. Next time I want to dye it. There wasn’t a Distress Ink to match my aqua.
