Lovng this card

I had my Aunt ask me if had ever tried doing a Dragonfly card after I posted my butterfly card here.

I very rarely reach beyond Stampin' Up! for all my creative card making needs but I couldn't find a dragonfly in my archive of stamp sets or in a current available set that would work for my vision until I turned to the web and found this one from The Stamping Place.


I used the new SU! Blendablities and for the Dragonfly/foliage and the 2014-2015  SU! in-colors with blender pens to create my best version of stained glass for the background.  I was happy with the final result.

Oh, I forgot to mention the retired set Whimsical Words that I used for sentiment I used for this card.... I was exactly the sentiment I want to my Aunt and Uncle for the inspiration.

Bon Voyage ~~~

Bon Voyage

I can't believe that I am not going on this cruise (through the inside passage through Alaska to Canada) with my friend, soooo sad about itFrom Millan.Net, but just wasn't able to swing it with to many other obligations to family and work.  Yippee for her.  

I wanted to make a card to wish her safe and fun travels and this what I ended up with.

Remember my post titled Butterflies Abound???

Well, I was asked to make six (6) of them for a family member...

I made 12 greetings for the inside of the cards so she can use them for the occasion she chooses.

I really like how the turned but not so much my blurry pic :)

When I sat down to make this card, I was heart broken ...

that my dear friend and her family suffered a lose of their fur family member Otto.

This card was made for that special friend (who I miss dearly since she moved away.)   She and her family have been mourning the loss of their sweet dog and wish I could have been there to comfort her.
Otto had stayed with us a few times and was the perfect gentleman. He had a black spot on his tongue and  I was told many years ago that black spot was a sign a line of royalty in dogs which Otto was (just like my dog name Moose).
Although the image doesn't show the true Otto, I hope the color likeness is comfortinFrom Millan.Net

This was a card made from the heart for my dear friend.
