I made these for a friend for Christmas and have decided to make some or myself. Hmmm, that gives me 4 days to get them done! ") Nothing like waiting until the last minute, huh. LOL I'm sure it will be after Christmas before I get anything else posted. Merry Christmas! and a Happy New Year!

The swirl stamp is by Rhonna Farrar of Autumn Leaves (?)......... The photos of the cards out of the envelopes were taken before I sent these submission to Stampington. I try very hard to remember to photograph everything I send as a submission because I very rarely have them returned...........cards, that is. If I send in a book or a journal, I send postage money so it can be returned to me.
I stamped her 2X and cut the dress out of the decorative paper and layered it over the little girl image. She just looks like she might be missing someone. ") Sentiments are by Stampin' Up!
This paper is by SEI (Mimosa) and the page that has the little flowers on it is just loaded with them. They are perfect to cut out and layer..and snip so you can curl them up and make them look three dimensional.
The Birthday Girl is one of my favorite images from B-Line. The envelope is a flocked cardstock.
The paper I used for "family reunion" is from Scenic Route......
alas, it is no more :(..........I bought several of Sarah Milne's craft papers that have a design running up the left side of the papers. This one had a tree and just begged for those little birds of Beverly's to be stamped onto it. ") I used one of Allie Gower's "Metal Works" flowers for the center of the ribbon.............and they didn't even give her credit for it!!! I've
sent in several cards to Stampington with her Metal Works on them and this was the first they've published. (sorry, Allie :(
I stamped the lady three times to get skin tone, the dress and the bowtie; then, I cut the dress and tie and layered over the skin tone image. I used Copic markers to color in the hair and face features. And, then stamped the tea tray from the same papers as the dress and used it to embellish the paper ribbon around the envelope. (These are my very favorite colors!)

either this website or my computer is not letting me upload any more pics.
Gotta go check out the problem. Will upload more photos when I figure it
This card was chosen by the staff at RSM for their "Alice Revisited" section. I had taken a class with Allie Gower on using Copic markers and used those markers and the techniques learned on this image and the teapots, cups and watch in the border. I love using those markers! I really wanted my image of the rabbit to have a "storybook" look. I kept remembering all those pastel pictures from books I used to read and tried to give this image a similiar look. I'm so glad RSM liked it! RubberStampMadness is truly a rubberstamper's magazine. I love that their focus is still rubber stamping.......as I am addicted to it!
(Rubber stamps used are from Tweety Jill)

The large one in the middle is the one that everybody helped carve for Dillon since he was not feeling well. This was the highlight of the day.....er, night. ")
Thank you very much, Aunt Sharla and Uncle Chris for all that you did today!

(stampdiva.com). I cut the front part off. Above the sun is a phrase....one in English and one in French (from French General). ("Mon ame se situe au soleil." "My soul lies in the sun.)
I just realized that this is the last photo I took of the album.........I forgot to photograph the back and it is beautiful! Mary Mata has some collage sheets. I cut a large picture to cover the middle of the back cover.....it was of an Italian goddess overlaid at the bottom with a piece of a lire and
up the side with a postage stamp. Also at top was a beautiful sunflower. The colors were cantelope, aqua, sepia and just a touch of pale sage. Stunning! (Maybe I can see Sandy when they get back and I can photograph it.)
online shop....just Google her name). The Paris faux postage is from Mary Mata. The sentiments on the left paper were so appropriate.
