A Bunch of Daisies for you.

Today's  post is a card for Mothermarks teapot Tuesdays. You can read all about it here. This was a combined challenge, Teapot Tuesday and Color Challenge. The set I used is a Flourish set called Gerber Daisies.  It is hard to see in the picture but,  the center daisy is popped up with pop dots. I used a variety of coloring tools, the stems were colored with water color crayons and the flower  center were with markers. On the petals I used copics, B000 and my blender copic.  The rest of the card was very easy. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Vacation pictures

A few weeks ago my family and I went to the Smokey Mountains, it was fantastic! One of the things I wanted to see was a bear in the wild not only did we see this Mom and her cub we also saw another Mom and cub! It was so exciting.  We did a lot of hiking in the Smokeys. 

The next pictures are of the kids and my husband on our way to Ashevile NC, we were going to the Biltmore. the last picture is of the Biltmore. It was just fantastic such a beautiful home.  Even the kids had a good time there. My son wanted to know how the Vanderbilt's  made their money.    Such a wonderful relaxing vacation.                           

Faux Bleaching!

Happy Sunday! 
This card is for today's featured stamper over at SCS.  I also wanted to try out a new technique that I saw yesterday on Bella Carta  blog.  This is a very easy technique and it was fun to do. It also has a great out come! This is a very elegant look to it.  Lots of browns and earth colors I will  have to give it a try with other colors.  Hope you had a great weekend back to the grind on Monday! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my creations!

A bowl full of cherries.

Happy Wednesday  blogger!  Today's card is for the sketch challenge over at SCS.  Since I returned from vacation, I have not been able to get back into stamping. Today I was bound and determined to make a card and the sketch is fun. This is what I came up with!  Have any of you had a creativity  block? It  is frustrating.  I'm  glad I made something today! I hope this helps. The stamp set is by Penny Black and the cherry border is made with my Flourish set called "Cherries and Peaches".  Just a quick note about Flourish stamps. I live in Michigan and their store is in Florida. I ordered some stamps on Saturday and by Monday I had my stamps at my door! That is fast service! I was very impressed!
Thanks for stopping by today, I will  try to post more this weekend!
