Make a Wish!

Good morning!  Today is an extra special day because it is this awesome lady's birthday!
Susan is such a sweet caring person, and I am blessed to create for her!
So in her honor, the team has put together a birthday blog hop!
You should be coming to my blog from Stacey Schafer's blog.
I created a card that has everything I love as a crafter....glitter, water colors, flowers, vintage, and a shaker element!  The cute teapot is part of Jane's Doodle's Tea Time set.   It was colored using my Kuretake water colors.
I added a glittery Spellbinder's die to the top and bottom, added my sequins, and a sentiment from SRM's, We've Got Your Border collection. 
I think Susan will know it is a card from me right away! LOL!  
Your next stop is my good friend Shantaie Caudill Fowler's blog!
Happy Birthday again to you sweet Susan!!

Got Flowers?

Good morning fellow crafters!
Have you seen these new bags from SRM Stickers? I love all things floral, so the minute they arrived at my doorstep, I knew I had to create with them!

They don't need much dressing up, but I knew I wanted to add another flower and a sentiment to the top of the bag. I used Jane's Doodles stamp set called, Fancy Doodles.  I stamped them in Versamark and heat embossed them in white.  I water colored and fussy cut them.

I added ribbon, rustic twine, and a sentiment from the We've Got Your Border (bright) collection.

Creating a Plaid Background with Tape!

Retro Glam

Good morning!  I have a retro glam card to share with you today! It uses a fun image from the Girlfriend's Creative Scraps collection, by Crafty Secrets.  I dolled it up a bit  by using a doily that peeks out from underneath, a couple of red roses, ribbon, and a few rhinestones.
Michele Kovack
I love that making a card takes so little time, because the image itself is so cute! 
Michele Kovack
Cort is slowly healing, but definitely feeling more like herself these days.  She requested that she "model."  So I dolled her up and shot a few pictures of her.  
Here is one of her "Glamour Girl" shots!

Farm Fresh

Good morning!  I finally got myself motivated to take pictures of my cards.! 
My card today uses a digital image from Crafty Secrets. It is part of the Farm Chicks collection.
I used my Spectrum Noir markers to bring the roosters to life. 
Michele Kovack
Once I was satisfied with the colors of the roosters, I took Cotton Candy Stickles and painted it on.  It gives the color a bit more pop and of course a bit of sparkle too!
I matted the image using a Spellbinder's die. 
Michele Kovack
Behind the die cut rectangle is rooster paper that you can find HERE. 
A bit of ribbon, a fancy glass doo dad, and a few rhinestones were added as finishing touches! 
Michele Kovack
I am excited to tell you that Cort's wound is healing and she gets to go back to school today!
She is so happy to see her friends and teachers!
This has been a long journey for her, and it does my heart good to see her happy and smiling again. 
Have a great day my friends!!!

Frothy Coffee....

Every now and then I get myself one of those fancy after dinner drinks.  You know what I am talking about right? The coffee with a little Kahlua or Baily's or something? 
So this shaped card was inspired by my apparent love for alcohol!  
I created this awhile back when I was on the Splitcoast Dirty Dozen team.  I used my Cricut, but can not remember for the life of me which cartridge I used.  I have since converted to a Silhouette gal! 
I used lots and lots of liquid applique for the froth. 
While it was still warm I sprinkled it with glitter. 
Michele Kovack
I added a bit of ribbon, a paper flower, and a sentiment from My Craft Spot.   (Shop website seems to be down)
Michele Kovack
I gotta confess that lately I am a lazy, lazy blogger!  If someone could just come here and take the pictures of my cards and write my blog posts, that would be great!
I have no shortage of cards, I create them and pile them up in my craft room.
What the heck is wrong with me?
