For the same wedding as those two floral arrangements in the previous post. Very large and a little heavy bouquet, but the flowers were beautiful! Had to really secure those heavy fresh sunflowers with wire so they won't slip out of the oasis bouquet holder.

Making two large fresh sunflower arrangements for a friend who is decorating for a wedding for tomorrow. These sunflowers are huge!! Using some leather leaf, baby's breath some ivy and these huge sunflowers. There arrangements are going to be placed on the altar at the church, then later at the reception.

I created this card for a cousin, who just got married recently. I didn't want to make it too frilly or fru-fru, so this is was the end result.

Materials used;
Dark blue card stock cut down to 81/2" x 11"
Cream colored card stock
Printed card stock (for heart cutouts)
Dark blue mulberry paper (ripped it by hand)
Decorative paper edger
Fine glitter and glue
Wide black Sharpie marker (outline card and hearts)
Spray adhesive (I love to use "acid free" spray adhesives)
I used my PC to type and print the wording on the cream card stock, then hand ripped it to fit on the card front.

On the inside I glued down a piece of cream card stock that I ripped by hand and two smaller heart cutouts.

I could sit here and design and make cards ALL DAY LONG!! I love it!! But, alas, there is always something around the house that needs to get done!!

Made this birthday card for one of my granddaughter'today. I decided a carousel horse (clip art) would be just perfect. I cut a 12"x12" decorated scrapbook card stock page down to 8 1/2"x11" and folded it in half to make a card. I used the carousel horse graphic and colored it in with Prismacolor pencils and embellished with lots of sparklie glitter, some shaped brads, and added a couple of silk flowers. On the inside, I just cut out a piece of the same colorful cardstock paper and layered a smaller piece of white cardstock over it and then glued it all down to the inside, then added a silk flower on the upper left hand corner. I love making special cards for the special people in my life!♥
