The embellishment on this card is a little flower that I bought at the dollar store. There were several on a bracelet that I dismantled. I do that a lot - dismantle items to glean the parts for art!! The decorative paper is DTP with pigment ink. I had much larger plans for this card but the prep time would have been unrealistic. Still very happy with the way it turned out!!

Fun card which features a watercoloured image of the angel (SU retired) and a cute little circle tag. Bought these at Dollarama last week. Very cute!! I stamped them with Memories but they could be wiped off. Will try StazON next time. I used drywall tape to create custom mesh for this one. Just painted it with acrylic paints in the appropriate colours.

This is an A2 version of the design I used for my Thank you cards! This one features a swatch of wall paper but any decorative paper can be used. More hydrangea flowers!!

This card features handmade paper which I have made. Really love making paper!! I save all of my scraps and bits from art to be recycled into more paper!! Great for all you scrapbookers out there as well. Save your acid free scraps and make paper for your scrapbooks.
This is a wonderful saying from one of the SU sets stamped in gold Encore. Painted little woodsie hearts to coordinate with the cardstock and paper.

Taught a cardmaking class last night. I do this class monthly and have a great bunch of gals who come and enjoy making cards. I was working on incorporating embellishments, so on this card I added a heart on the bottom right mounted with foam tape. Makes a valentine's card in these colours but could easily be made up in a different colour of cardstock and be used for a birthday or as a thank you card. The image is one of Maryse Carrier's! Love it!
