Copic Markers

Hi All… I’m back!  Happy ‘late’ Valentine’s Day!  I made this super cute card for Brenda.  I used the February Pixie of the Month (from Pixie Dust Studio) as my main image and then used the “LOVE” sentiment from A*Muse Studio (my first card using A*Muse stamps).  The two felt hearts are die-cut.  How cute Read more

It's time for another blog hop with The Angel Company.  Since this is a 'seasonal' hop, I made a cute "Happy Easter" treat filled with jelly beans.  The image stamp is from The Joy of Easter set and the sentiment stamp is from the I Love Easter set.  I used my spellbinders die, stamped the Read more
