Happy Beach Critters…


Who does not love a Pelican in a lei?


Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps is our sponsor May 12th – 15th over at Passionate Paper Creations and Friends by Rhea.

They have lots of fun images, buzz on over and check them out. Now on with the show and tell….


My pelican was simply colored. I added 3D crystal lacquer to his beak and a bit of white gel pen in the flowers.


Going for a generic card I used the Hello as my sentiment. I stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed it in white, right onto the pattern paper.


I added 3 white gems on the lower left to balance the sentiment in the other corner.

Just Like Daddy…


My inspiration for this card is my Great-Nephew Mikey! Although I think he may be more like his PopPop than his Daddy.

Don’t you just love the boots, and his mischievous grin? the Grin is what reminded me of Mikey.


I was not sure what type of card I wanted to use my little guy for, so I went with a slightly generic one from C.C. Designs.
