"Mothers and Sisters"

The Lunagirl Moonbeams continue the theme "Mothers and Sisters" for the month of May.  This time I made a card using the sisters part of the theme.
This card pokes fun at the sisters playful mood.  The mat for the Lunagirl image is woven cardstock.

Mothers and Sisters Challenge

Here we are at the beginning of another month and that means there is a new challenge at Lunagirl

Since Mother's Day is in May, Karen is using the theme "Mothers and Sisters". on her website.  Go to the above link and enter.  She has also posted the rules there and they are also listed on my previous site.
My first sample for this challenge is a typical classic card.  The image of the mother is from the many images that Karen carries at the Lunagirl website.  As added embellishment I used a butterfly and some sequin flowers.  The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs.

    My Day at Gecko Galz

    Today I am being featured on Gecko Galz Scrapbooking website.  Here are a couple of samples I made  using images from their store.

    I really like this card and had someone picked out who would receive it, but my daughter's dog got hold of it and tore it apart.  I manage to salvage all of it with the exception of the background designer paper.  I was going to put it back together,  but I do not have any more of that designer  paper. Oh well, I won't let him in my workroom any more!

    The lacey part under the image is a recycled piece of an old commercial card.

    The tag uses one of the jewel domino images.  The bottom of the tag looks like part of it is missing.  It is not really as I made my tag from a paper I made using the Gelli plate and it just happens that  there is a white area at the bottom.  Also for an embellishment I used 4 rows of rhinestones.    The black and white spray is a piece of chipboard.  The bow at the top is silver and seems to pick up a reflection of the purple acrylic paint.

    Thanks to the generosity of Gecko Galz here is a free image for you.

    Spring: In Suspension

    "Spring:  In Suspension" is what I named this mixed media canvass.  It uses watercolors, acrylics, and Stickles.  I did this a little while back and I am just posting.  I really enjoyed creating this.

    Gecko Galz Today

    Today is my day at Gecko Galz;  With packing and moving I have been only able to make a couple of things this time.  One reason is exhaustion and the other not being able to find all my supplies.
    The background on both of these tags is watercolor powder.  This is something fairly new for me and I love using it. 
    I put a little humor with this  tag.  I gave the girl an egg body and the flowers seem to be in her hair.  I decided to leave her face back and white so it would stand out from the colorful egg body..

    Below is the freebie that Gecko Galz has graciously given me to share.  Enjoy

    Lunagirl's March Challenge

    I haven't posted lately as we are downsizing from a four bedroom house to a bedroom in my daughter's house.  My husband and daughter are doing all the work and I can only help a little with my inability to stand and walk without a cane.  We are almost there.  Our  house is sold and we plan to be completely moved by April 1.  We are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but everyone goes to bed complete exhausted.  Needless to say there has been no time for crafting and my stuff is in my small cubicle at the new house, in the garage and in storage.  If I find something to use, it is by luck.

    Over at Lunagirl Karen is having a great challenge.  It is Spring Flowers and Birds, one of my favorite themes.  I managed to supply one card this week for the challenge. 
    I just love this cute little image from Lunagirl.  Karen  has so many images it is hard to pick one to use.  The background is a piece of wrapping paper.  I have use it many times as it fills in the background nicely with various spring flowers.   Along with the little girl image, I used one of Karen's bird images too.  The card is embellished with a single pink flower.
    Don't forget to go over to the Lunagirl site and enter the challenge.

    February is Love

    February is the month for Love at Gecko Glaz.   I made a variety of items for my samples this time.  Firstly  are some tags.
     For this one I used a couple of stickers to accent the black and white Gecko Galz image.
    One this black and white I added some white, pink, and red tiiny foam flowers.
    This time I not only used a Gecko Galz image, but I used one of their many backgrounds.
    The mat on this card is from a shiny paper bag.
    The main thing I like about digitals is the fact you can change the size to fit your need.
    The Twincie I have above and below here will be put on a card as an opening tab.  These images were reduced to 1 1/2 inches and they were a little hard to cut out.
     The following card is a little different.  It is a shaker card and you can see the Gecko Galz Zen Cupcake through the window..  I made this birthday card for a special friend. 
    \Thank you visiting my blog and here is a free digital stamp for you thanks to the generosity of Gecko Galz..  Just right click on the image and then save.
