Surprise from Jason

Ten years ago, I had a student named Jason in my Kindergarten classroom.  Fast forward to last week when I reached into my home mailbox.  I found a package from Jason.  In it was the most adorable dachshund pillowcase ever.  I am touched that he thought of me and remembered my love for Sloopy after all of these years. 

So, I made him this thank you card.  The fun dachshund alphabet is from Cowtown Stamps, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. The other part of the sentiment is from Honeybee Stamps.  That's some fun washi tape along the bottom of the card.

Thanks so much, Jason!  I'm so proud of the kindhearted soul you are.

A Fringe Flower Hello

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Distress Inks, flower, hello
Every now and then, I make a card I actually like.  This is one of them.

I'm not sure why I waited an eternity to play with the A Jillian Vance Design Fringe Flower Die Set like I did.  This card came together quickly.  The coloring method is sponging Distress Inks onto scrap pieces of white cardstock and simply die-cutting.

You can read all about this card today on the AJVD blog.

Light My Life

TIddly Inks, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, lighthouse
It's July's Fab Friday at Tiddly Inks!

For my contribution, I made this card using the Tiddly Inks digital image of Light My Life.  I printed it onto X-Press It cardstock and colored the image with Copic markers.  I then added the wave border along the bottom of the card cut with a Memory Box die.  The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and is from A Jillian Vance Design.

Make sure you check out the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog to see some beautiful Tiddly cards and projects.

Have a great weekend!

Graduation Corgi

Some Odd Girl, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, corgi
Not many people need a graduation card with a corgi on it.  But when your best customer needs such a card, you make it.

The corgi is a digital image from Some Odd Girl.  The graduation hat is from Avery Elle.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps.  X-Press It cardstock was used, along with Copic markers.

Later in the week, I'll be back for Fab Friday with Tiddly Inks.  Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Fishy Notecard

There may be a time when you need a fishy notecard.  If there is, you can easily use a balloon die to make the fish.

This card is a result of me just playing around with some supplies, using them in unexpected ways.  If you'd like to read about this card....how I made the fish with Distress Oxides and two quick cuts with my scissors and the underwater scene using Distress Inks....you should swim on over to the A Jillian Vance Design Blog today.  You'll find all of the details there.

WELCOME to Unicorn Street!

Tiddly Inks, Kecia Waters, unicorn, welcome home, Copic markers, rainbow
It's time for another Tiddly Tuesday on the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog.  The theme this month is Anything Goes, so you really have no excuse to not particpate.

This card features a digital image from the Tiddly Inks set Lovely YOUNicone and Unicorn.  I printed the unicorn onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored the unicorn with Copic markers.  The letters are from a Penny Black alphabet stamp set and was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black.  The "welcome" sentiment is from A Jillian Vance Design and was also stamped with Versafine Onyx Black.  I added a strip of washi tape near the bottom and a few white sequins to complete the card.

At first glance, this card might not make any sense.  The reason behind the card doesn't make any sense either, but it is a real situation that angers me.  A co-worker of mine, in order for her family to remain together, had to seek residence in Canada.  The new administration terminated the immigration program that allowed her husband to live and work in the US, and he was ordered removed.  He had been working in this country for several years.  The reason there is a unicorn on the card is because she is moving to a street called Unicorn Street. 

Canada, you're awesome.  The US right now, not so much.

Patriotic Celebration

AJVD, Kecia Waters, patriotic, celebrate, red white and blue
A week of patriotic celebrations.  That's what's happening all around.  I will probably stay in and read, lol.  And shelter my Sloopy from the booms of the fireworks.

You can read all about this card today on the A Jillian Vance Design blog.  Go.
