Today was my monthly card class at Scraps of Life, a big thank you to those wonderful gals that joined me, it was so much fun! This is another card from my class today, my favorite one from this batch. This is such fun paper, the Detour line from October Afternoon. It is double sided which creates so many possibilities!
The stamp set is "friendship strips" from The Angel Company, the boat is paper pieced, and the sun is an orange flower. I love how this one turned out, what do you think?

Irish Beauty

St. Patrick's day is my daughters favorite holiday. She loves it, so every year we do special things to make it all even more fun. Every year she plans an elaborate Leprechaun trap, seriously, and she is quite clever about it too. We have never actually caught one, but she is persistent and continues to try. She is sure that if she could only catch one they would become good friends and she could possibly receive some free wishes or at the very least some gold. Oh how I love this amazing girl, it is such a joy to experience the magic of childhood again, even if it is through someone else's eyes.
This is an 8x8 scrap page that I made last year for the Winger Design Team on Paper Wings. All paper and stamps are from the Angel Company. It is one of my favorite photos, I think from Kindergarten, it just makes me smile.
Have a great day, thanks for stopping by!

What Gives My Heart Wings

This is a project that I created for the Paper Wings Design Team, The Wingers, back in the summer. Paper Wings is a great site just for Angels from TAC, but the gallery is open to everyone. If you have not checked it out , what are you waiting for?
I used the Amberley Grace collection of papers and card stock. I free hand cut the heart and wings, just lightly drew them on the back side of the paper, then cut them and added chalk to give some depth. (You could also make them out of scratch paper and trace around them, then you would have a great pattern to share.) All the letters are die cut. I used my favorite swirly set from The Angel Company, "Fancy Curls". Then I added that beautiful pewter buckle and photo corners, form the box of embellishments that I have been hoarding. A little ribbon, a few dew drops, and a photo of my favorite people in the world! I really like how this turned out, what do you think?

To The Core...

This is my favorite card from my card class last weekend. I love it. I was so excited about it until my sweet husband told me he thought it was a little "cheesy"! (insert shocked face) Maybe it is a little cheesy, but thankfully everyone at my class liked it as much as I do. (And wont my sweetie be shocked when he finds this is the card I 'm planning to give him for Valentines!! :) hahaha!)
What do you think?
