Lovely Lace at Deep Ocean Challenge!

Hello, sparkly friends! I want to thank you once again for your continued love during my family's health tribulations. You are sweet rays of sunshine and I am grateful for you.

Today begins a new challenge at Deep Ocean and it's exceptionally pretty: Lovely Lace! I have returned to my Copics and was reminded that learning to color is a journey! ;) But it was still fun.
This cutie pie is Pixie, one of the darling Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet (available in rubber or digital). I was first drawn to her beautiful wings, ready to carry her through every storm as she fights for every dream in her heart... just like the inspiring warrior who will receive this card. She is indeed flying with her own wings driven by God's love, so beautifully captured in this Graciellie Design Angel Wings sentiment. The sentiment was cut out with a Spellbinders Lacy Pennant.
The special recipient is Willow, a teen cancer warrior who inspires me daily. She has survived the cancer that plagued her, but continues to battle the effects of treatment and the anxiety that fills her with fear that it will return. I hope this brings joy to her beautiful heart. ♥︎
A bouquet of aqua and white flowers (mostly from Live & Love Crafts) adorn the Lemoncraft Forget-Me-Not papers. The gorgeous Aruba Blue ribbon is from DL.Art's Tropical Summer bundle.
The butterfly border atop my card is from Joy! Crafts. The butterfly below is Isabella from Memory Box... the script and musical score papers in this pad are so pretty! The layered lace flower and Button Etoile are from Live & Love Crafts, while the lace is from The Ribbon Girl. Marianne Design's Stitched Circle holds my sweet image. My card base was made with Go Kreate's Large Frame Frilly 7.

Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a sparkly day. (I'll list the Copic colors soon!) ♥︎

A Cuppa' Love

Happy Friday, sweet friends! I hope you're having a blessed week. I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today with a coffee-inspired creation. Coffee=Love. ♥︎

I used Maja Design's Coffee in the Arbour, as this gorgeous image from the collection instantly came to mind. One of the many things I've learned from being involved with parents whose children are fighting for their lives is that something as simple as a coffee with a loved one is cherished. This card will include a gift card to provide those few minutes to recharge.
Not only is the scene so dainty and pretty, but I also love the color palette. ♥︎ I have framed it with a Joy! Crafts Oval Frame.
The sweet pink and blues carry over to my floral arrangements, which include the stunning pink beaded berry stamens. They are somehow both whimsical and elegant, which is my favorite crafty combination. Magnolia Heart Swirls flourish within.
This lovely tag is also included in the collection, which is too pretty not to pair with the image. :o) A darling Maja butterfly has landed atop it. The opposite corner has a pearl heart, delivering pearly love to the recipient. ♥︎

Thank you for fluttering on by! Have a beautiful weekend. ♥︎

Follow Your Heart

Happy Friday, sparkly friends! I will be visiting you soon. ♥︎ I'm posting on the Live & Love Crafts blog today, sharing my take on Sandy's recycling/upcycling theme. I created a tag using Maja Design's Vintage Autumn Basics and Vintage Summer Basics.

You know how Sandy always wraps everything so beautifully? I save the gorgeous seam binding packaging, as I love the sentiments scrolling across it.
A quick peek at Sandy's wrapping, which gave me Follow your Heart:
There are so many wonderful words and phrases. Inspiration truly can be found anywhere. ♥︎ This tag will be part of a gift for a beautiful family enduring heartache. This tag is a celebration of the parents' love. Rather than fall apart as their child fights a terminal disease, they follow their hearts into a love that grows ever stronger.
Vintage Autumn Basics XXII is probably my favorite blue design of any collection. Fluttering atop it is a Memory Box Isabella butterfly made with Vintage Summer Basics papers, clearly driven by the music in its heart. ♥︎ The smaller butterfly is from Coffee in the Arbour. The stunning Button Etoile centers a triple bow of seam binding.
I used a few trims on this tag. :o) The wide lace is the gorgeous Celeste, which is paired with the sweet and ruffly lace Madeleine (my new favorite lace combo). I sprinkled a Prima resin Lace Heart with Shabby White Frantage and tucked it within a tiny flower arrangement. Rhinestone Lace trims the entire tag because love is sparkly.
And this is me pretending I can take artistic photographs. ;) Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a happy weekend. ♥︎

Hearts at Deep Ocean Challenge!

Happy Tuesday, sweet friends! I hope you're having a beautiful week. It's time for a fun new challenge at Deep Ocean Challenge and it's a sweet one: Hearts! ♥︎

Love is for all seasons, so rather than a Valentine I made a friendship card to thank a friend for supporting me through this difficult time. You may be surprised to see coloring! After 1.5 years away from coloring due to injury, I have returned to my Copics for Deep Ocean projects and it feels magical. ♥︎
This cutie pie is Lullaby from Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet. Isn't she the sweetest angel? Sadly my pictures washed out some detailing (I need to work on this!), but Polar White Flower Soft adorns the branch for fluffy snowy fun. Her wings (and the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers) are covered in Glamour Dust for wintry sparkle.

She is surrounded in love via a die from Sue Wilson's Decorative Frames Italian collection. A double dose of love adorns the corner, where the smaller Cheery Lynn heart (Two of Hearts) is topped with friendship in full bloom. The pristine Pure Love crinkle ribbon is from my dear friend Diana of DL.Art.
The Graciellie Design sentiment is from her Angel Wings set, inked with Milled Lavender and nestled in a sparkling Melissa Frances resin frame. Gracie is a sweet friend and I'm thrilled for her digi store re-launch that took place last week. My papers are from Maja Design's Vintage Frost Basics, which are embellished with goodies from Live & Love Crafts, Wild Orchid Crafts, and lace from The Ribbon Girl.

My card base was made with Go Kreate's Large Frame Frilly 10, which is topped with Joy! Crafts Lacy Square Frame. The small snowflakes are from Cheery Lynn. A larger Magnolia snowflake is tucked within the flowers, while Magnolia Heart Flourishes provide extra touches of love.

Be sure to check out my teamies' inspiring creations and I hope you can play along with us. Our amazing sponsor for this challenge is Live & Love Crafts (yay!) who is generously offering a gift certificate to one lucky winner. :o)
Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a blessed day! ♥︎
