It's Not Easy Being This Sweet!

Hello everyone! Martha here with you. I have a super sweet card for you today featuring Cupcake Ellie
Isn't she just the cutest thing?! I colored her up with my Copic markers and fussy cut her out. I like to leave a little white border around the whole image just to give it an extra layered look! I did a lot of gold embossing and added gold touches all over the card. The flowers are mostly from Wild Orchid Crafts, except the big pink one, which I got from a local fabric store. I hope my card added some sweetness to your day!

Angel Ellie Pillow

I decided to use one of the fabric blocks that I received in my Design Team Package 
to make a girly pillow.  I matched it up to some of the fabric that I had.  I think it turned out cute!
Trying to get a good picture was the hardest part!  I framed the Angel with my large green
pom pom trim, small white lace and large pink rick rack trim.  I added 5 inch white
embroidered cotton trim to the sides.
I added clear swavarski crystals to the halo.  You know that I have to throw in some bling!
I crocheted a multi layered flower, added the blue trim around it and popped a 
cute button in the center.  
The pillow measures 18 x 18 inches.  I hope that you like it and are inspired to make one yourself!

Warm and Cozy Wishes

Hello everyone! Martha here with you today. Have you seen the new Avery and Penguin Penny stamp?! It's so cute! I made a non traditional card with it. This card could defenitly be a Christmas card, but also just a wintery 'thinking of you' card.
I used a lot of fun dies and a sentiment stamp from My Creative Time, And flowers from Wild Orchid  Crafts. I hope you like my wintery card!

Its me again, Jill. I am back today to share with you my card I made using French Girl Avery. On this card I have done something that I have never done before, and that is to use Project Life cards on my card.  They were perfect for it, and I am sure I will do this alot more.
Be sure to stop by my blog here to see more information on this card. I will be giving away a yummy candy at 500 followers, I am at 499 now, so hopefully today will be the lucky day.
