Isn’t she cute? I just love this little sprite. The quote makes me unbelievably happy as well. “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower” -swoon That is exactly how I feel. This card came together so well that it exceeded my expectations completely! Even when I was playing around making the background paper my husband peeked at it and said “That’s fall”, I knew I had it right at that point.
When a friend of mine asked me if I could make her birthday invites I was excited at getting to do just that. She loves stripes so I thought this sketch would be a perfect base, and I wanted a fun fairy with striped socks to make it the perfect card for her (and this one with the cupcake makes it perfect for a birthday invite). The main image is the first one I made, but it needed some tweaks and she wanted 12 cards so the second image is of all of the cards together. Each Fairy has her own coloring and personality, and I love that!
There are holes in my memory because of the MS. It makes it a challenge when I make birthday cards for certain people because I can sometimes only remember one thing about them if that. Then again sometimes that makes it a bit easier because there are other people it feels that I could make a hundred cards for because I think of all sorts of things about them when it is time to make them a birthday card.
I was supposed to post this card yesterday in honor of my eldest niece turning 17. You want to know what, this auntie was doing a bit of pouting instead. Don’t get me wrong, she has grown into an amazing woman. One that I am super proud to know and love and spend time with and I can’t say enough wonderful things about… However, she will always be my little Tinkerbell, my princess, the baby that I waited in a parking lot to meet, the little girl that played in my skirts, and I would buy Hot Cocoa bubble bath for so she would take a bath. read more
I am really loving figuring out how to make square cards work. I think they work best at this slightly larger size since the envelopes are this size, even if it does throw my standard system off a bit. It just means that they will be a bit more special when I make them. read more
