Tuesday, August 10-Tweet Blessings


My first card is Where there is love, there is a home A simple CAS card done on White CS. The birdhouse is stamped and colored with pencils and gamsol. Added a bit of Black Diamond Stickles to the opening. Inside is lined with Basic Grey DP and each corner is punched with a MS corner Punch. Added a ribbon, the sentiment (highlighting the words Love and Home), and the darling house charm. Stamps and charm from
Mark`s Finest Papers . 
My second card is Speedy`s Peace Christmas. Isn`t he the cutest? I used red cs as my base. The white cs layer has the corners punched using a MS corner punch. Speedy is stamped and the flower colored with Copic Markers. The inside has a lovely sentiment which reads You have many Blessings When you look into your heart and find love and peace F.Kessler


I added the Gingham Ribbon to card front and envelope with a bit of Bling in the bow center. Stamps,paper, and ribbon from Mark`s Finest Papers . And did you know? They now carry Copic Markers!!!!

  1. GREAT job. You are so good at tiny detail. I particularly love the way you used the red gingham ribbon, as if you had a 100 yard spool at your disposable. It makes the whole card look sumptuous.
