Birthday Card for My Dear Daughter

My eldest becomes a teenager soon
where did the time go?

While crafting with fellow DT member
for Above Rubies Studio, Jen Young, I noticed
this precious image in her stash (uninked and brand new)
dare I ask to be the first to ink it? YES!
Thanks, Jen!

Sugar Nellie image, My Mind's Eye and Stampin' Up paper,
Tim Holts distress stickles and embellishments
Prima Flowers and ribbon from Michael's
Colored with Copics and Twinkling H2Os
The tag has a special note for my daughter;
asking time to stand still so I can see the
little girl in her teenage-eyes!

Thanks for stopping by!

Coffee Collar Album

Project from GIBBS2
on the Cricut Message Board
One of the challenges was to create a
 Coffee Collar Album
I was paired with my younger sister!!!!
I decided to fill hers with colored images.
(We joke that I am the #1 colorer in our family :))
She is one of the most talented crafters I know and I
admire her work tremendously!
The images are:
Sugar Nellies
Whiff of Joy
and Belles 'N Whistles
I used Copics and Twinkling H20s

I painted the coffee collars in Chocolate Acrylic Paint
and placed the sentiments and embellishments
under transparency paper.
My Bind-It-All made assembly easy!
Thanks for looking!
