It's Sketch Time

I used the sketch below and Chelsea Gardens to make this card.
With the sentiment  inserted in the flowers it can be used for a
Birthday card, Mother's Day card, Wedding card or any other
card that is for a special day. The flowers are colored with water
color pencils. To get the water color look for the leaves stamp image
 in ink, stamp off to 2nd generation, spray with light mist of water
and stamp on white daisy CS.
Be sure to check Freshly Made Sketches each week for a
fun and easy card sketch.

Fine & Dandy

Scrapbook Candy
Sometimes it's fun to take a stamp set and make some Scrapbook Candy that you can use on cards and scrapbook pages. I used the Gimme Some Sugar stamp set to make some candy to use in the future. I also used the You Amaze Me Petite Perks for some sentiments.
To get started with your candy create a title with your stamp set for a scrapbook page. Then stamp all the images in the stamp set with the desired colors. Cut out your images. Cut shapes for mounting the stamped images. I used the Basic Circle Tags, Basic Hearts, and various shaped scalloped circles. Stamp your sentiments and mount your images on the cut shapes. Your candy is ready for use.

She's Always Ready

Picture Perfect Ashley
Our granddaughter, Ashley, has always been ready for the camera. With her
grandpa being a photographer the combination of the two has blessed our family with
some amazing photos. For this page I just opened the photo drawer, closed my eyes,
and picked a photo. It didn't matter which one because she's always picture perfect.
I was happy that this photo goes with the Chelsea Garden Scrapbooking stamp set.
The pattern for this layout is pattern #2 in Make It From My Heart Vol. III
