Easter Carrots!

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning!  I am getting ready to start my cooking for tomorrow, but wanted to post these cute carrot boxes I made for the SRM blog!  I used my Silhouette for the box, and the JustRite flower dies to embellish them.  I added a bit of glitter, pink satin ribbon, twine, and a few sequins.  The sentiment is part of SRM's Spring Sentiment collection.

Since I had both kiddos home for the weekend, I took some photos of them.  I think Cort was a bit happier about that idea than Kyle! ;) It isn't often anymore that I can get pics of them together, so I was glad to capture this one. 
I hope you all have a blessed Easter!

Using Stickers!

Created by Michele Kovack
As typical for me, I am a day late (and a dollar short).  I am going to blame it on my kids. ;) 
I have both of them home and I had the pleasure of cooking for them (cleaning after them ha!), and reading TEN books to Cortney! 
So yesterday this card was supposed to be posted.
It didn't happen.
I was up on the Scrapbook Adhesives blog with a fun and simple way to use stickers.

I created a little scene using SBby3L's 3D Garden Shape Stickers.  I peeled the tops away and sprinkled them with sugar.  No glue, No mess.  Just peel and sprinkle!
I added an SRM Sticker for the sentiment because it seemed too perfect not to!
Added some of Donna Salazar's Girlie Grunge twine to the top and a few sequins.

I am taking Cort for a much needed haircut today.
Afterwards I have to get some pictures of her in her cap and gown for the yearbook.  Her school is letting her come back to participate in the graduation in June.  I am so grateful for that. 
If you would like to "follow" her story and see her modeling pics as well as her "regular" pics, head on over to her FB page.  She would love it! 
She loves when her numbers grow and she gets new followers!
I will be back tomorrow with another Easter project!
Have a wonderful Friday!

Bloom and Grow!

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning!  I have another card to share with you today using the same egg shape as yesterday.  When I use my Silhouette to cut shapes, I tend to cut multiples.  And I don't know if you are like me, but I feel guilty throwing anything away, so I end up making more cards with the extra pieces! I used the same Honeycomb background stamp from JustRite.  I inked the edges in a soft Spun Sugar by Tim Holtz.  I added an extra oval down the center and stamped it.  I added a cluster of flowers using JustRite's Floral Trio dies.  An SRM spring sentiment sticker was added, as well as a bit of ribbon, and a few sequins.

Kyle comes home today (along with all of his laundry I am sure!).  ;)  Cort is home tomorrow and then I am off for the next week.  I feel blessed to have a bit of time off to spend with my family and get caught up with a few things around the house.  
Dinner with friends tonight too!  
All is good in my world!
Have a wonderful day my friends!

Easter Egg!

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning! 
 I am up on the SRM Blog today with a fun Easter Egg shaped card! I cut the egg shape out using my Silhouette.I used JustRite's Honeycomb background stamp and embossed it in white.  I gave it color using Tim Holtz inks. The sentiment is part of SRM's Spring Sentiment collection and was mounted on an oval die.  I wanted to "frame" it, so I created a cluster of flowers using JustRite's Floral Trio dies.  I also added Tonic's white dimensional paint to the flowers' centers.  The pretty silk ribbon is from the Stamp Simply store.

I am so excited that both my kiddos are coming home for the weekend! It will be so nice to have a full house for a few days!
Have a lovely day!
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!

Using Copic Markers to Add Dimension

Created by Michele Kovack
Good morning my friends! I have a card that was published quite awhile ago in Northridge Magazine.  It used the Cricut to cut the circles and flamingos.  I wanted to add a bit of depth to them, and Copic markers were a perfect way to do that!  I added shadows to their legs and bodies.  The background was  also done using Copics to create a sunset of sorts.  I then stamped a sentiment from JustRite, then added a bit of sand at the bottom to finish it off.

We are finishing up Cortney's room this weekend.  It's a lovely shade of purple!
I think she will be very surprised when she comes home for Easter!
It will be so nice to have both of my kiddos home for the entire weekend!
Have a wonderful Sunday!
