Tag Challenge at Joan's Garden

Here I am again!!!

 Gosh today I am getting alot done in my craft room!
Yee haw!!!! Good day to stay in and get crafty.

This is a tag I made to go with the Baby gift I
 made andI posted here . I am also entering this tag at
 Joan's Garden Tag Challenge  go and check out the
wonderful entries and vote for your favorite!
 Again I used the Flourishes stamp
set. SU & MS punches. Gelly Roll pen for the
outline of the stars and on the moon and words to
 add sparkle to them. The DP is from SU as is the CS.
I used my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol again
 to color all the images. This was such a fun project along
 with the baby gift. It's been awhile since I have
done any baby projects. I hope you get a chance
to make a baby project too, it makes you
 feel so happy inside thinking of those new little
bundles of joy and the miracle of birth!
Ahhh God is so good!!!

Well that's it for tonight. I hope your having a
wonderful evening relaxing. Please stop back again soon!

Wall Art Baby Gift

Hello Everyone!

Hope your staying dry, boy is it raining and cool today!
Tomorrow we are expecting lots of snow again, sheesh
when is it gona stop LOL.
Hopefully the project I have to share today will brighten your
day a bit. I just finished a baby gift for my Chiropractor
 who is expecting a baby in May. She has been great
  in lessening my pain, that I wanted to make
 her something special for her new little one.
Hopefully she will enjoy this gift.
Again I am afraid my
pictures do not do it justice at all, yet I have been photographing
 it all morning and none came out very good so these
 will have to do sorry.

The picture of the moon is recessed in for
more dimension.

All the stars have sparkles outlining them.

The stars are popped out on each cloud
and have candy sticks elevating them in
 the Tussie Mussie. It's hard to see but
at the bottom of the Tussie is another
white knob with tulle around it.

I used Flourishes Stamp Set and SU Word Stamps.
I colored with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.
The sparkles around the stars and on the background
of the moon are a Gelly Roll pen. The punches used are MS & SU.
CS and DP are from SU. The frame is unfinished from Michaels
and I painted it with acrylic white paint and matte varnish. The
knobs and tulle is also from Michael's. Ribbons & buttons
 are unknown in my stash. White eyelets are also SU. I used
the Dotted swiss embossing folder to make the clouds in
the Tussie Mussie behind the stars with the words.
I hope you feel inspired by this project.
Please let me know what you think of my
 baby wall art gift!
Until next time

Joan's Garden Challenge #8

Good Evening Stampers!

Tonight I want to share a very quick card I did
for Joan's Garden. You really need to go to her site
 and check out all the cool stuff going on there.
Now on to my entry.

 Like I said it was a very quick one, not real detailed
 except for the layering of the flower and leaves.
I used JustRite stamps,& the Fleur De Lis nesties.
Some gold brads, and my Gold pilot marker.
Black Memento ink and Copics were the
 inks I used to color with. I embossed with the Sizzix
 swiss dot folder in my Grand Calibur, love that machine!
So there you have my quickie card hope you like it.
Please go check out Joan's Garden
BIG prizes available if you so hurry!!!

Until next time Big Hugs
P.S. Tomorrow I will post my big project I have been working on!!

Guest Designer Follow up

Hello Stampers!!

Hope your all enjoying good weather today, it's been
 fabulous here in NE Ohio today, sunny and around 50.
Finally LOL LOL, but it's not to last,tomorrow is to
 be in the lower 40's then 30's again!
 BUT spring will be here soon!!!!

Today I wanted to share what I did for the inside
 of my card that I did for Joan's JustRite Blog Hop,
( see posting below for more info.)
Since I did use one non JustRite stamp for the inside I
couldn't show it on the blog, but felt it was okay to
 now. I did use the JustRite flower stamp and part of
 the word one that was used on the front. I used it
with a stamp from The Stamp Barn. Again the pictures do
 not show well all the distressing and layers or even
the rhinestones, but you get the idea at least.
The size of the card is 6 inches by 7 inches.
The ribbon is the actual "fold" that holds it all together.

Well I have to get busy on a big project I am doing for my
Doctor I go to, that is expecting a baby in May. It is taking
me forever, hence this posting today and not something totally
 new LOL. At the rate I am going with it, the baby will
be here before I get it done LOL. So for now,
 Hugs to all and come back soon.
God bless you all!!
