Crochet Batman Lovey




I am loving how it turned out in the end after all the trouble I had with trying to make a Batman stuffy shaped head. I decided to scratch that and just settle for the emblem. I crocheted an oval and then by using felt cut out the bat shaped symbol and adhered it to HeatnBond creating a patch to iron onto the gold oval. It worked like a charm! 

Stay tuned for pictures of the upcoming batman ensemble on a real live newborn baby!

You Know How to..


You know how to make me smile! Give me a beautiful image to color, some time to myself and card making supplies! I am a happy girl! Today I made this card using up more awesome scraps from my scrap box, and playing with a few die punches. I have been trying to be more creative with backgrounds in my images. On this design I used a flower die punch, and some distressed ink to give the illusion of flowers in the foreground, then with what I call the speckle technique I added in some grass, hand drawn in some clouds and speckled some shades of blue for the sky, topped it off with a flock of birds in the distance. I look forward to mailing her off to someone special!

Blooming Day


I started this card yesterday sifting through my scrap box for paper designs to go together in complimenting shades of summer time. I used my Copic markers to color the images, I added some sparkle to the the flower and the water pouring from the watering can. I used my Cuttlebug and a decorative folder for my embossed background and the yellow stripe across. Using a flower punch I created a stencil to use on the greeting to give it a hint of blooming flowers. Finished it off with some distressed ink around the edges of the image.

Dragon Kite Flying


Today I needed a card for Father's Day. I remembered my father showing me how to fly my first kite as a child so I picked Dragon Kite Flying as my image for this card. I hope he likes it! 

Happy Father's Day to all the Father's out there!
