You Make Me Smile!

Good morning! Yesterday, I was up on the SRM Blog with this little number.  
I am on the 2015-2016 design team for SRM, and couldn't be more thrilled! 
I used a new set by Jane's Doodles called, Fancy Doodles. 

For all of the info and details of how I created the card, pop on over to the SRM Blog!

Farm Fresh

Good morning!  I finally got myself motivated to take pictures of my cards.! 
My card today uses a digital image from Crafty Secrets. It is part of the Farm Chicks collection.
I used my Spectrum Noir markers to bring the roosters to life.

Once I was satisfied with the colors of the roosters, I took Cotton Candy Stickles and painted it on.  It gives the color a bit more pop and of course a bit of sparkle too!
I matted the image using a Spellbinder's die.

Behind the die cut rectangle is rooster paper that you can find HERE. 
A bit of ribbon, a fancy glass doo dad, and a few rhinestones were added as finishing touches!

I am excited to tell you that Cort's wound is healing and she gets to go back to school today!
She is so happy to see her friends and teachers!
This has been a long journey for her, and it does my heart good to see her happy and smiling again. 
Have a great day my friends!!!

Frothy Coffee....

Every now and then I get myself one of those fancy after dinner drinks.  You know what I am talking about right? The coffee with a little Kahlua or Baily's or something? 
So this shaped card was inspired by my apparent love for alcohol!  
I created this awhile back when I was on the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen team.  I used my Cricut, but can not remember for the life of me which cartridge I used.  I have since converted to a Silhouette gal! 
I used lots and lots of liquid applique for the froth. 
While it was still warm I sprinkled it with glitter.

I added a bit of ribbon, a paper flower, and a sentiment from My Craft Spot.   (Shop website seems to be down)
Michele Kovack
I gotta confess that lately I am a lazy, lazy blogger!  If someone could just come here and take the pictures of my cards and write my blog posts, that would be great!
I have no shortage of cards, I create them and pile them up in my craft room.
What the heck is wrong with me?
