The Calm After the Storm

Here in Wisconsin we have been having some pretty scary storms for the past 2 weeks.  Which is why I haven't been creating much.  We have lost power almost every evening so I have all my toys unplugged!  The other evening after one of the storms passed through I noticed this orange glow coming from my living room windows.  When I looked I saw this absolutely beautiful sunset!  I snatched up my camera and ran outside to snap a few pictures.  This one is my favorite. Isn't this pretty?

Please bear with me as I redesign my blog.  The publisher of the old layout is no longer.....

Karen's Doodles Easel Card

I wanted to try my hand at making an easel card.  I got the instructions from Split Coast Stampers.  The image is another Karen's Doodles.

All the paper is Stampin Up.  I colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils and added Stickles to the flowers.  The corner is a chipboard piece covered in SU paper and tied with fuzzy yarn.

The border punch was a gift from a friend.  It is a set sold by Oriental Trading and comes with 6 different punches.  I love the look of these leaves.

All the edges were inked with SU inks.

Here is a side view of the card:

Isn't this cool?

Another Flower Bear Card

I love coloring this cute little bear so I made another card.  This one is going to a friend as a thank you for some terrific goodies she passed my way.

I have been having trouble with my camera.  The blue paper is more purple in color but after taking over 50 photos at different settings I can't get my camera to see it as purple!  Time for a new camera?  Anyway it's a cute card no matter what color it is. LOL

Flower Bear 2

I used a lot of pop-dots on this one.

Flower Bear 3
 I can't decide if I should stamp "Thanks" on the front of the card or make a small tag....  What do you think?
