Sweet Spring Card

Hello Friends!! Just a card I created! Ummm, yah. . .LOL! Of course it's a card you created, Maria! Silly.
No, I did not draw the bench this time around but I did draw the grass, little flowers and butterfly! You should try drawing stuff yourself. It's just doodling stuff. . .you don't have to be a good drawer or anything like that. It's just fun to add your own scenery!

Anyway. . .I had fun creating this card. The image is Magnolia . . .darn I don't know the name of the stamp. .. the stamp is downstairs in the family room. Anyway, check out Jen's store "Little C's Stamps n' Things" and you can find a whole buttload of Magnolia stamps. I got this stamp from her store.

I colored my image using my Copic Markers and added a bit of stickles to the wings of the butterfly and the girl image.

The designer paper is also from Little C's! I thought the paper matched so nicely with the colors of my image. Because the dp is already all by itself. . .I didn't add more to my card except the "All Natural Accents" flowers. . .again from LIttle C's, the ribbon, paper clip, and sentiment.

You're like. . .that's a lot. . .well, trust me I could have added more but I didn't want to go overboard! KWIM?

Anyway, I hope you all have a fabulous day!!

Card Details:

Stamp: Magnolia, Fiskar clear stamps (sentiment)
Paper: From Little C's (don't know the brand name)
Ink: Copic Markers, SU Blue Bayou
Accessories: All Natural Accents, Paper clip, Satin ribbon (?), Hemp cord, Provocraft Scallop Scissors, Coluzzle Circle Template

Not So Perfect Form

On Sunday we went bowling. . .we wanted to go "Cosmic Bowling" but it was too crowded. We decided to return and bowl when the crowd died down a bit but Cosmic Bowling was already over. Shucks! I love Cosmic Bowling.

Sorry for the picture of my behind and worse, not in perfect form! Argggh!! I actually bowl sort of weird. I tend to bend down real low when I throw the ball. I didn't do to well this week. I only bowled a 99. My daughter, believe it or not, had 4 strikes in one round. I was impressed. Anyway. . .we had a fun time bowling. You should try it. . .bring your kids. It's a fun family activity. . .bring them to Cosmic bowling if your bowling alley has it. . .your kids will love it!!

Very cute, Maria! I love the scene you are drawing! Even if you don't think it is hard, I think it is! And you are very talented!

Ah such a cute card & that paper is so perfect for this image! I can't draw so I think I'll stick to just stamps, heheh!!!
My family & I were just talking about bowling this weekend & promised that we would all get together & go soon. My hubby & I use to be on a league from where we worked, it's so much fun!

Your form is fine. As you as you have fun truly that is all that matters. And I must say this card is Gorgeous! Am doodling may be easy for you but not for mwah. I should practice doodling more I guess.

Very Very cute Maria. OMG I'm scared now with that thing you said about the page. hahahah I don't know what it is I think it's because I had this adsense thing before and I took it out. hahahah

Heather said...


You are hilarious with your photo's of the day girl!!!! You made me LOL!!!

Love the card so cute. Janna keeps telling me how easy it is to create sceenery, but I am not sure!!!!

I love your coloring, and choise of colors so so good and cute!!!!

I am not sold on Magnolia's or Headless girls yet, but I like them when other people use them just sort of creeps me out the no face or head thing. I am alone on that I think because everyone uses them and loves them!!!!

I mean I love your card, just have not ventured out to buy any yet!!! LOL.

Your blues and grays were so good together!!!!

So Great Maria!!!

Maria, this card is just adorable! The image is so sweet and I LOVE the sparkle added to parts of the image! I guess i just love everything about this card! The DP, the flowers, the paperclip and the LO, it all comes together and is not too much! I guess that just about sums it up! LOL
