A Different Perspective

Good Morning,

I am back with one of my favorite cards as of late.  I designed this one using Eat Cake Graphics stamps

They have been in style over the years, but I am still stuck on birds, and this one is just so cute!  I decided to distress the paper and stitch by hand, giving it an authentic, shabby chic, home made look.  Do you like?

This sentiment is one that I live by.  When emotional, I step back, and try to look at things from a different perspective. And yes, sometimes that means headstands in my Ashtanga practice.

What motives do you live by?  Care to share?  Please do.

Have a fabulous day!

Cupcakes Anyone?

Good Morning!

Here is another multi-layered card using my Eat Cake Graphics stamps.

Birthdays are all about fun times, with friends, being happy together.  Yellow to me is a sunny, fun and warm colour. Thus pairing these elements all together makes Baxter one happy bear, ready to share his cupcakes with friends!

Do any of you have any birthdays coming up?  What makes your day special?

Hope to hear from you!

You are my Sunshine!

Good Morning,

My Oma used to call me her Sunshine #1, as I was the first ray of sunshine, followed by many other grandchildren.  I have continued this tradition by singing "You are my Sunshine" to my belly while I was pregnant. To this day, when my girls are upset, or need help falling asleep, all I have to do is hum or sing that song, and it has a soothing effect on them.

Once again I have added layers upon layers to create this bright and cheerful card.  I used my adorable
Followed by some additional sentiment stamps and my Magnolia tree stamp.

Do you like to layer?  Do you find this to be too much on one card?  I love hearing what likes and dislikes you have when card making.  By all means, please leave me a message.
As for me,
there are times when I like to Keep It Simple, and other I can not get enough of the layered look.

Happy Friday!
