Dear Mom...

This, past, weekend was mother's day, and to show some appreciation to my mom, I made her a card. The image is from Bugaboo. and I used Prisma colored pencils to color the image. I gave this to my mom and she really liked it. It made me happy, and proud to be her daughter. she has been there to support me through everything in my life, and i couldn't ask for a better mom.

I hope you all enjoyed this card. It was fun for me to make and I am happy with how it turned out. thanks for stoppin by. = ]

I entered this card in the Mother's Day / Flowers Challenge at Craft Us Crazy

Furry Friends

Hey y'all! Back with my second challenge post! This week I used an image from Dustin Pike. i thought he was soooo cute! I colored him with Prisma Colored Pencils, and glitter pens for a shadowy affect. I used two colors of Martha Stewart Glitter, on the wings and in the water, the waterfall colored stickles, for the water to make is dimensional, an adorable little dragonfly charm on a pop of brown ribbon, just in case the little froggy gets hungry.

I have entered this card in the following challenges:

Taus Are Cows!

Okay. :) As I started my second year of college, I contemplated "going Greek," and I decided to join a sorority, but not just any sorority, Tau Beta Sigma, the National Honorary Band Sorority, was my choice. I am now part of an elite group of sisters.

As one of the new sisters of Tau Beta, we need
ed a group project. Being the inherited-crafty person I am, I collaborated with my mom to come up with an extraordinary idea, so our pledge class to create something memorable and unique. Together, we decided bracelets would be perfect! We created a design, found charms and agreed we could make it into a fun and personal project for all the sisters which has not been done before. :)

Last night us "newbies" got together and created our bracelets, inserting our personalities, and having a great time. Now, we can't wait to get together with our older sisters to help them create their bracelets and have even more fun and bonding and getting to know each other better!
WSU is our school initials, TBΣ is the sorority initials. The cow in the center represents our chapter's mascot. We are Alpha Mu (or as we like to say Alpha Mooo). The letter charms I found out Two Purple Pandas, and the cow charms I found at DCBCrafts.

I hope y'all like these are much as I do and as much as my sisters do!

Spring Time Spring Card

Alright. this is my first post ever! my mom is a crafter and I decided to start entering challenges with her. We found this neat little template for the "spring" card at split coast stampers. I used a spring themed cupcake and used some of my favorite colors to show my fun and crazy spring-loving side. I used prisma colored pencils (cause I'm afraid to use the copic markers. lol), and I used stickles to add a little sparkle effect to the cupcake and the flowers, I also used Spica glitter pens. The cupcake image is from Limited Runs Stamps.
