Just For You

My new Frantic Stamper Inc dies arrived today and I couldn't wait to get started using them. I started by cutting the Hot Air Balloon (FRA-Die-09491) die out of four different colors. I chose the blue sky DCWV paper as the the background. After gluing the balloon base done I used the cut-outs from the remaining colors and puzzle-pieced the different colors into place. I use Kraft cardstock as the basket of the balloon. Next I used one of the Wavy Banners dies (FRA-Die-09475) cut from Vellum paper. The sentiment is from a soon to be released Frantic Stamper Inc stamp set.

Put On Your Party Pants

It's been a few weeks since I posted a card. I have a serious bout with the flu and I am just now getting back in the swing of thing. I had a fever of 105+ for four days. I was delirious and so weak I had to use a walker to finally make it to the doctor's office. I still don't have all of my strength back and have lost my sense of taste and smell. I'm hoping that comes back on it's own. I'm so sick of taking medications that the side effects are worst than the illness! My sarcoidosis has really calmed down and I have I hope that it's in remission!

I've always like this KennyK image but have never used it. When I saw this sentiment at Create w/TLC I knew I'd finally use it. My style dictates that I have the perfect sentimnet to go with an image. My BIL has a birthday coming up and he will really get a kick out of this card. The design paper is from DCWV. I also used a Cuddlebug embossing folder to carry on the star theme. The image was colored with Copic markers. I added a large piece of bling as a "disco ball" along with some glitter glue. The sentiment was cut with Frantic Stamper Inc "Cartoon Speech Bubbles" while the "Musical Score" and "Wine Bottle and Glass" set were used to finish off the party theme!

Saturated Canary Bookmark

A few weeks ago we lost power. My cell phone was nearly dead and I didn't want to drain the last of the battery listening to an audio book. I'd just gotten a paperback from my mother and it was an opportune time to read it. For the life of me I couldn't find a bookmark! The power came back on about six hours later but the landline, cable, and internet were off for 24 hours. I'd finished the book by the time everything was back to normal but I need to have a bookmark on hand for future use. 

I colored up this cute Saturated Canary image with Copic markers to make one. Using a Dienamics tag, an eyelet and ribbon it was an easy task. I highlighted the image with Glossy Accents, a Spica glitter pen and colored "pearl" earrings. I would have loved to add flowers and bling, but for a bookmark it's just not practical. Try as I might I couldn't find a stamp, either actual or digital, that caught my fancy. I decided instead to use the Frantic Stamper Inc Mattie Thin Lowercase Alphabet and some red foil paper for a simple "read."
