Yellow rose

Who does not love roses?  We have a few knock out rose bushes in our front yard and they seem to bloom forever here in Florida.  Did you know that the color of roses each have their own meaning?  You may have guessed that red roses symbolize love, and white roses are for weddings – reflecting young love and pink represents gratitude.  Yellow roses signify friendship and I thought I would make a card with a yellow rose.

The image is from Creative Vision called single stem rose shown here.  It was colored with copic markers and sponged with grey ink.  The patterned paper is from DCWV which has a yellow, green and grey pallet with bits of glitter throughout.


We’ve seen a few bluebirds this year but none have elected to nest in any of our birdhouses.  We are fortunate to have a nice variety of birds that “hang out” in our backyard and we provide feeders, birdhouses and a birdbath for them.  The area directly behind the house is wooded and I am sure that helps.   So…..a bluebird card is called for!


The image is from Creative Visions and is called Bluebird of Happiness and is shown here.  It was colored with copic markers.  The patterned paper is from Memory box.

Pink flowers

Hello crafty friends – I’m back at my blog again and over the next couple of weeks I will be showing some cards I recently made for Creative Visions.

This is a cute and easy card to whip up – I colored the flowers with copic markers and sponged the sky with memento ink.  The cloud is a shape cut with my Silhouette.

The image is from Creative Visions Spring Flower set shown here.


How is your garden growing these days?  We’re in the process of revamping our front yard and hope to make it a bit more colorful and decorative.  Right now we have some nice bushes in front along with a rose bush or two, but that is about it.  I’ve been looking through gardening magazines and loving all the pretty flowers and greenery.  So much to chose from!!

While I have my mind on flowers, I made this card using the geranium stamp from Creative Vision, found here.  It was colored with copics.



Some gingham ribbon and embossed background add texture to the card.  Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by today!

sailing into the sunset

We are very blessed to be living near the water here in Florida.  The beaches have sugar white sand and  the water is shades of emerald green and turquoise blue.  We have incredible sunrises and sunsets.  So, inspired by the natural beauty around me here is this sailing into the sunset card.

The image was stamped with memento tuxedo black ink and colored with a variety of copic markers.  The background was sponged with memento inks.  The stamp – called Sailboat Scene – is from Creative Vision stamps and can be found here.
