LMMS - Jr Hatter Shower

Hello LMMS followers :)
Glad you could stop by today!
 
I couldn't wait to share this cute card with you today. Can you believe it's the "official" start to summer this weekend- Memorial Day!
 
Hope this card and image put a smile on your face! She is just to adorable with the hearts flowing out of the garden hose. And I tried to go w/some fun spring/summer colors.
 
When I cut out the butterfly punch on the white paper, it just looked a little 'boring' to me. So I got out my Distress Oxides and did a little blending. Then cut out the butterfly border. I LOVE how it turned out!



Here is a close up so you can see the 'sparkle' of the water coming out of the hose. Along with the wet look of the hose with the Glossy Accents applied.

LMMS Inspiration

Hi everyone!!
 
Back to share a quick post with you from
 
 
If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know I love cats! I have 3 - a girl named Abby, and 2 boys Sniffles and Burdock!
Abby was a Christmas present from my husband and son many years ago. As luck would have it - we couldn't find any kittens at our shelter that Christmas and had to wait until Mother's Day.
Abby is now approx. 16years old and my still my 'baby'.
 
Our boys were both strays we happened upon while living out in the country. Sniffles we found out was sickly a lot when younger, so the guy down the road had named him Sniffles. And it just kind of 'stuck' :)
He is approx. 16 years old as well.
 
And then our not so little lil guy Burdock. He came to us full of burdocks from the fields around our house. We had to literally cut them out of his fur. So we thought that was a fitting name for him! He is approx. 10 years old.
 
SO..........enough about my cats! Here is my card!
 

Image: Feline sitting
Paper: White and cream cardstock
Color Medium: Copics
Other Supplies: Memento Ink-Rich Cocoa, Dovecraft-Paw prints, Inky Antics Cute Cats #2-Sentiment, Memory Box Stitched Rectangle Layers die, Enamel Accents white, Wink of Stella-Clear

I made my own quick background using my Hampton Art Stamp Perfect and the paw prints. And I wanted a quick CAS card for a nice little "Hello" or "Thinking About You" card.
 
Well, I hope you didn't mind me rambling on about my cats :)
 
Please make sure you check out what the rest of the DT has been up to. They have some pretty amazing cards out there!!

LMMS Inspiration

Hi there!!
 
Late post as I am having issues with our internet :(
 
They are doing water main work on our road and I think they might have done something, but not sure. It's amazing how something so "minor" like that can throw off your whole week!!!
 
 
ANYWAY...I am here to share my card this week for Little Miss Muffet Stamps.
With Mother's Day this Sunday, I thought I would make and share this cute card.
 
When I seen Petunia I thought she was just too cute! I really like that there is an add-on for the face as far as the eyes, nose & mouth. This way you can give different facial expressions based on what your card is for.  I liked this one as it looks like she has the biggest smile on her face that her eyes closed shut :)
 
Hope you like it!

In the meantime - please check out the rest of the great work the DT has created for you.
