Baseball fanatic

You may or may not be a summertime baseball fan, but this adorable penguin from Crissy Armstrong of Whimsy Stamps is sure a "heart stealer", if not a "base stealer"!   I decided to keep this as a masculine card, so kept my embellishing to a minimum (guy cards are generally not much FUN, are they !!), and stuck to a scrap of baseball paper, and some die cut stars.  Have a safe and happy summer, all.

Pinkalicious love

If you've been looking through my previously posted cards, you'll be able to tell that I absolutely LOVE these penguins that are drawn by Crissy Armstrong that are found on the Whimsy Stamps site.  Who says penguins are just a winter or Christmas image -- not any more!  I've colored this one with prismas, and added the computer-generated sentiment.   The remainder speaks for itself -- doilies, die-cut foliage, ribbon and flowers.   Have a safe and fun-filled Memorial weekend . . .

Micey nice friends

Ah, the simple enjoyment of spending time with a good friend -- aren't these cute little mice from Di's Digi Designs just the sweetest.   They've been colored with prismas, and I added stardust stickles to the flowers and butterfly wings.   I used a scrolled die cut border along the bottom, then topped with flowers.   A few pearls, a glitzy bow and a lacy doily completes my creation.

Birthday greetings

Here's another of Conie Fong's adorable bears that I've colored up for a birthday card.   I put faux stitching around my image, a lacy doily behind, and added flowers with swiss dot brad centers and scrolled foliage die cuts behind for a feminine look.   My birthday sentiment has also been done with a die cut.

Mmmmm, the best !!

Nothing much beats the cool, refreshing taste of a ripe watermelon on a hot day, and this adorable penguin of Crissy Armstrong's from Whimsy stamps is proof of that!   I found I had the perfect coordinating background paper for this in my stash.   I've colored with prismas/gamsol, and added a computer-generated sentiment.  Thanks for coming in to enjoy this happy penguin.

Writing you a little note

This bear is from the QKR Stampede store, and I've colored him with prismas/gamsol.   I found a cardstock scrap in my stash with pencils on it, so it worked perfectly with this.   The shiny silver corners are candi-dots, mounted with foam.
