I Brake for Dragonflies!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a card that I made using the beautiful image from I Brake for Stamps called Dragonfly Stained Glass Large.

Don't forget to use my coupon code...SAVE10RENEE to save 10% off your order at I Brake for Stamps.  It can be used over and over again and never expires.


I completely hooked on the stained glass series.
This is one of my newest additions to my collection.
I used Stickles on the wings to give them shimmer like a real dragonfly.


For now the inside is blank because I didn't need it for any special event.  Who knows...it may wind up a birthday card, get well, sympathy...maybe just a "hello" I miss you.

Safari thank you card

Hello and happy Thursday!

Today I'm sharing a very special card with you.  In August my husband's aunt and her friend invited me and my daughter to their home in Myrtle Beach for a vacation.  We went to an interactive safari that was amazing.  This is the thank you card that I made for them.


We went to Myrtle Beach Safari...aka...T.I.G.E.R.S.
The Institute for Greatly Endangered and Rare Species.
This is a 900 lb. liger.  I can't remember his name.



We also went to Alligator Adventure so I wanted to include a gator on my card.



I made a step card because I wanted there to be a lot of dimension.
We got to hold many different species and some of the others we just observed at close range.
White Handed Gibbons.
They were so much like human babies.  They clutched their blankets, sucked their thumbs and squeezed our fingers.



One of our favorite moments was when we got to hug Bubbles the elephant. She was rescued over 30 years ago when her entire herd was slaughtered for their ivory.  It's just mind boggling to me how some people can treat animals like they're trash...use what you want and throw away the rest.  We got to see her eat a watermelon which is why I have her holding one on the card. They told us she has the intelligence of a 6 yr. old child.


My kids taught me a little fun fact...scientists think that elephants think that people are cute.  They believe the way we react to our cat or dog is how they think of us. They want to cuddle and be around us.



We also held baby lions and tigers.





Though they aren't on my card we also interacted with wolves.  They were SO sweet and just want their ears and bellies scratched!




Baby Lynx.

WC Puppy and Cat

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a water color card with you.

I used

I've been stamping for about 12 years now and have loved Art Impressions since the beginning.  I am still very new to water color cards though.  I'm really trying to make more of them because I know I won't get any better if I don't practice. 


I still look at hundreds of other card makers and think theirs are SO much better but I'm not embarrassed to share mine anymore.  Baby steps...lol!

Magnolia Sympathy

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a sympathy card that meant a lot to me.
My best friend from high school lost her dad a couple weeks ago and I made three cards...one for her, one for her sister and one for her mom.

I'll share others soon.

I used three stamps from I Brake for stamps.
and


I used two cross dies from Spellbinders.


On the inside I stamped a part of the magnolia in the corner.


Caren's father was very special to me growing up.  I spent so much time at her house with her and her parents.  They were such kind, loving people.
He will be missed by many.
