Zeenya's Moving On Ceremony...


Hello lovely bloggers,

 My older daughter, Zeenya had her Moving On Ceremony today... She enters Middle School in August...

This is the card I made for Zeenya in a real jiffy. I have hand drawn the graduation hat and coloured it in with my Darwent water colours. The roses are made my me so is the red tassle. I have used a Hero Arts Life of the Party stamp for the background. I rolled up a small piece of paper for the certificate...At the bottom is a Martha Steward border punch.

Enjoy!!!

We are leaving for three week break tomorrow evening...
So pardon me if I am missing... But I will try and visit you if I can.

Hugs,

Monica

A commissioned card

Hello bloggers,

Hope you are enjoying summer and all it's beauty.

Here is a quick card I made for a lady who lives in our complex. She wanted it for a friend who was moving to another country.

The house stamp is from Hero Arts and I have used my  Archival metallic blue ink pad to stamp it.

The clouds are stickers that came from lovely Terry - thank you, Terry for all that delightful stuff you sent me.

The ribbon roses are from my stash and so are the gems and the butterfly.

The strip at the bottom is actually a wall paper sample. I did a bit of touching up on the stamped image with my Sakura pens.

I wanted to write something more meaningful but that is all that the label would hold...

The lady did like the card and I sold it for USD 3.5.

Happy crafting with lots of hugs,

Monica

From an angel...


Hello bloggers,

I have been falling behind with blogging so I thought that I MUST do a post today to make up for that...

I have made this card with my new Q.T. Hooty Owl Stamps from Pink Cat Studio sent to me by an angel... Sorry, cannot disclose the name but know that she is adorable, kind and loving.

I have used blue cardstock as the base and the have stamped the image with Stazon black. The image has been coloured with Darwent and Sakura glitter pens. The sides of the stamped paper have been distressed with Broken China. The ribbons and gems are from my stash.

Don't you love these owls and the sentiment is fantastic, isn't it?

I was just doodling with Aleeza on the dining table this morning and this is what I copied from a picture in the newspaper... Aren't you impressed???

Have a nice weekend.

Hugs,

Monica
