Circles Quilled Purple Blossoms Picture Frame Card

As usual, November comes around and everyone is working on Christmassy crafts and I'm always stuck in lalaland thinking about flowers. :D C'mon holiday inspiration...any year now!

Right, so flowers :P...here we go:

This darling little guy is one of my bridesmaid's son. He's pictured here learning how to walk just a month shy of turning 1 this summer. They really do grow up so quickly!

Yesterday was a gorgeous 64 degrees and today we're back down to high 30s. Huh? I hope we move into our new home before the snow hits!

Have the sweetest Tuesday--

Softball Cupcake Handmade Birthday Card for Khris

I found this card that I never posted from back in June. It was to my coworker, Khris, for his birthday. He so proudly shows off his softball injuries each week that it's hard not to think of this theme for his card to make his day complete.

The card took on a cupcake shape and instead of regular frosting, I decorated it using acrylic paint to look like a softball. Each stitch was brushed on with red paint and then sprayed with glitter.

This is the free cupcake card template I used.

I hope spring comes around again soon!

Stunning Thinking of You Card w/ Quilling, Embossing

I have to admit, I am a little in love with the clean and simple look of this card. :X It's mostly white, but the gold on it really pops!
2 quilled flowers and rhinestone centers. The frame was dabbed with a pearlescent paint by hand to create the effect. "Thinking of you" was wet embossed with gold powder. 

It's my 2nd full weekend in Albany. We've been driving down to NYC every other week as my cats are with my dad and we try to drive up things in little batches--whatever we have left in storage. Driving is like night and day. I don't miss that about NYC at all! 

Wishing you all a great weekend!

Pink Picture Frame Card Quilling Flowers Pink/Periwinkle

Hello from upstate NY--long overdue post!

We're only halfway through moving...and by that I mean that our stuff is in storage and we live in temporary housing. Hopefully for not more than another 2 weeks! I'm getting a little cabin fever here. :O

Below is a picture frame card that I made 2 days ago. I had a hard time finding a place to photograph in this small room, but there you have it...a window ledge!
This picture is about 3 years old of Dimma and I. We were much skinnier in those days. :D 
I have some pink in there to match the background and I'd like to call the other color periwinkle, but I'm not sure if that's correctly identified. :P There's some glitter on the leaves as well. 

Hope you're all having a wonderful Thursday!
