Zandr's Valentine Card


It's been FIVE months since I have posted a card!  Life sure does get in the way of things sometimes!  I have been crafting and making cards, just not blogging them.  In mid November, I tested positive for Covid-19, and I was kind enough to share with my hubby.  Thankfully we both had mild cases with aches, nausea, fatigue, loss of smell and taste.  By the time our 14 days of quarantine were over we felt almost 100%!  I still think, at times, my smell and taste aren't 100%.  We celebrated Christmas with our son and his family the weekend before Christmas, but our daughter and son-in-law decided it would be best if they stayed away to protect everyone. 

On to my card...This is my sweet grandson's Valentine card.  I got my inspiration from Nancy at Mulberry Station's post back in 2014!

Laurie's Birthday


I'm back again today with another card!  My good friend is having a birthday on Sept 1st and this card is for her!  I'm going to make her a t-shirt with a sunflower out of vinyl that has half a sunflower and the other half says "In a world of full of Grandmas be a "YaYa".  I thought this image was PERFECT!

Karleigh's Birthday


What a struggle to get my card on here!  I couldn't get it to insert, so I had to copy and paste...which surprised me it worked!  I guess I should have known I'd have issues when my copic E000 made a mess of her face!  It is out of ink, but the few places I've looked for a refill are out of stock...UGGHHH!  I guess I will just buy a new marker.  Anyhow, this card is for my nieces 18th birthday.  She is a short skinny thing and this image is PERFECT for her!  I imported Bugaboo's Girl Side Peeker image into Silhouette Studio, added different fills to make my scene, typed the sentiment, and then printed her out to color!  The layout is for Stella Says Sketch #813.

Christmas In July Day 5

I'm back today for day 5 of Catch The Bug's Christmas in July Challenge.  My inspiration came from Pia's card with the Ho Ho Ho's and Dee's Designs with the "who needs snow?"  I designed everything in Silhouette Studio and then printed it out to color Santa.  I'm very pleased with how it turned out!
