Do you remember when I did the "snail" file last year, April 17th? Well if you go back to that idea I had, I used it again. This is my umbrella, drawn by Nana Vic, and we are to use it in a card. This is mine. Its a little sad at first...because Im missing you. But if you pull the umbrella down, like the snail, you see a happy sun. Sun's should always be drawn with a smile in them! That's how I always did it as a child. :) Im still missing you but now with a smile....Lisa

Iris Folding

How about something different? Iris Folding..... Now I have tried to show you how to do this but it was years ago. If you look at my old post, October 2009, you''' see a tree. This is very simple and will make beautiful X-mas cards. This time I did a Lady Bug. I traced a lady bug in my Craft Robo and cut it out. I found a triangle as the Iris pattern and that's how I got this..... What do you think? Lisa

Another Challenge....

Im trying a new challenge from Crafter's Digital Art Center, CDAC. Will I win this time? Maybe, maybe not but I'm going to keep trying and show the world the cards I design! :) This one is called Seasonal Fun. Right up my alley! The problem is I am known for my Christmas cards and we have to create a card of what season you are living in. I live in Michigan and all of you, who live here, know our Spring can change in temperatures from one day to the next! Sunday we were 61 degrees, and Monday we were 39 degrees! So I said forget winter and I did this cute spring, or baby, card. The digi came from Bugaboo and his name is Theodore. I just love the ladybug on there. To me, that's a sign of WARMTH! haha I also added "Spring" like paper and pastel buttons for that added touch. This card is a "just Because" card. This means that there are no saying on the front or inside. It is cute enough for a Spring card, a Baby card or even a Birthday card. I create several of these a year and they DO sell!!! You never know what people want at a craft show. Last year, I saved a lady! She needed a Wedding card for that night...and it was a Christmas Holiday craft show! hahaha Keep you fingers crossed, that I will win a new challenge, for me!! :) Lisa
