Surprise Purse Valentines

These are some purses I made from the template I won from a blog hop at Creations by AR.  This is such a fabulous template and I have loved using it.  I made 10 valentine purses for the ladies at Marc's work and then Elaina and Sierra wanted me to make "special" valentines for their teachers and Sierra's bus driver.  This template could be used for anything just by changing up the closure and using flowers, buttons, a bow, or just about anything else!  Thank you to Adela for coming up with such a wonderful template and I am so glad I won it especially when I did because it has sure come in handy.  Thank you Adela and thank you Maria!

Iva's Christmas Card 2011

This is Iva's Christmas card for 2011.  It is a PSX stamp colored with prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.  I added gemstones on the corners of the frame because she like "bling".  The background card was embossed with a cuttlebug folder.

Some Christmas Cards for 2011

This is a PSX stamp colored with prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.  The gold around the edge is a gold leafing pen.  I wanted this outline around the house but the size of the Spellbinders was too small so Penny Duncan had this on her site as a free SCAL cut and I could size it to just the size I needed and this worked out great to me.  I only got a very few cards fixed this year since I broke my arm and did not have them fixed ahead of time, so this year I am starting early and putting them back so if something happens closer to Christmas maybe I will still have my cards ready to go out.  I made a few for the ladies Marc works with but I did not even get them scanned in.

I won!

I can't believe that I have won a book from Ann Martin's site about quilling and I also won two templates from Adele at Creations by AR!  Maybe this is a sign that I should get off my behind and start doing something creative.  I have never won anything in my life and to win two different things within two weeks of each other is just unbelievable to me.  Thank you ladies for making my life so much happier and I will try to create something that will make other people happy with the items you have given me!

Iva's BD card using Penny Duncan designs and Prima

This is a birthday card for my niece.  The paper is coordinations and the flowers are Prima.  The frame around the flowers and the decorative corners are from Penny Duncan Creations.  I love Penny's site because her designs are easy to use and change size because sometimes you just need a larger or smaller size than you can find on the metal cutters or anything else out there!  Thank you Penny for helping me make my few and far between creations look better.  (So sorry the picture is sideways).
