Birthday Card/Glimmer Mist

Hello!  Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  Here's a birthday card I made for my sister in law.  I love how this came out.  Paper and stamped image is from We R Memory Keepers.  I used TIm Holtz Distress ink along the edges and the on the paper.  Then I stamped the tree in black and I used my markers to stamp the leaves. I used copper Glimmer Mist to give the whole card a bit of shimmer.  The sentiment is cut out from the "Wild Card Cricut cartridge.   Enjoy!!

Sympathy Card

Hi everyone!  Hope you are all having a nice evening.
Here's a card a made for some very special friends that have been going through a difficult time.  The leaf is from the "Stretch your Imagination" Cricut cartridge.  It looked a little stiff so I chalked around it.   I added pop dots for a bit of dimension.  The sentiment is from the "My Pink Stamper"  collection.  The bird is a Martha Stewart clear stamp.  I used Marvy Uchida markers to color the bird blue and brown.  Never done that before.  I think I still need a little more practice with it.  Tied some brown ribbon around it and chalked around the mat.  All in all I like how it turned out and I hope it made some very dear friends know that I'm thinking about them.

One For One Movement - A Pair Of New Shoes Is Given To A Child In Need With Every Pair Purchased -

One For One Movement - A Pair Of New Shoes Is Given To A Child In Need With Every Pair Purchased -

I'm organizing a 1 mile walk without shoes.  If you're interested in participating let me know by leaving me a comment asap.  It would be after work.  Location and time to be determined.

One Day Without Shoes, on April 8, 2010, is an effort to bring attention to the impact a simple pair of shoes can bring to a child’s life. We ask people to go the day, part of the day, or even just a few minutes, barefoot, to experience a life without shoes first-hand, and to help spread awareness.
