Birthday Train


Isn't this little birthday train adorable?  It was a freebie over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps to celebrate their 4th birthday....each train was "custom" made....you just had to let Barbara know if it was for a boy or girl, age & the # of cars. Mine is going to my grandson Tristan for his 1st birthday next month. The train is coloured with copic markers & I used glossy accents on the window to make it look like glass; DP is Dina Designs & Colorbok & the ribbon is from my stash. It doesn't show up in the picture but I "stickled" the flame on the candle & all of the sprinkles on the cupcake. Thanks for having a look!

Love You Beary Much!


I made this exploding box card for my Granddaughters for Valentine's Day. Once again, it is a DT card for Beccy's Place. My DT spot for Beccy is coming to an end & I am really going to miss working with her sweet images. I'm so thankful to Beccy for giving me my very first DT position.
This adorable panda bear is part of a set that also includes a lion & a hippo & all the "sweet hearts" sayings. I used my copics to colour him, DP & flowers on the sides are Recollections & the sparkly hearts I'm not sure of because I threw the packaging out.....bad Renee!

Flowers of Friendship



Hello, my name is Renee & I am a bad, bad blogger! It has been nearly 2 mths. since my last post!  I have escaped the cold Manitoba winter by coming to Mesa, Arizona & the beautiful blue skies & warm weather. We are staying in an RV resort where I have found a group of other ladies here who are as crazy about making cards as I am & we have been getting together once a week to share ideas & to create. I'm loving it!

My card today is a DT card for Beccy's Place. The image & sentiment are by Beccy Muir. I coloured the image with copics....I'm fairly happy with the flowers but really need some practice on leaves. I wanted to keep the card very simple to highlight the beautiful flowers so I just edged the white CS with a Martha Stewart punch & put is on some orange Bazzill CS, added a bow & ta da....finished!

Secret Santa

 

Have you ever been to the Make It Crafty site to check out Zoe's amazing digital images? If not you should head over there as soon as you leave here! This little sweetie is called "Floppy"....is he not adorable?!!  This is a card I made for a Secret Santa swap in the MIC facebook group. It travelled from Canada all the way to Sweden. I coloured Floppy with my copic markers & added diamond Stickles to the brim of his hat & cuffs of his sleeves. The DP is Bo Bunny & the lovely die is Memory Box "Beloved Snowflakes".

Baby's 1st Christmas


I made this card for a special little person in our lives....our 7 mth. old  grandson Tristan who was a surprise addition to our family in April.  This adorable image called "I even love the paper" is from Mo's Digital Pencil. When my kids were little they loved playing with the wrapping paper almost as much as the gifts! The candy cane DP is by Teresa Collins & the red sparkly stuff is DCWV from a pad of border papers that I've had forever!  I coloured this sweetie with my copics & added my ever favorite Stickles to his hat

Country Christmas


This could be a scene from my livingroom window! I live in a cozy little cottage on the lake & can see the lights of the cottages across the water glowing at night. It is especially beautiful in winter with the snow glistening (although it is darn cold!)

I made this card using part of a Stampscapes set called "Lakeside Cabin" (how appropriate!) & the lovely Memory Box window die. I added acetate to the back of the window die cut; used dimensional tape to form a frame on the back; added about 1/2 tsp. of glitter snow inside the frame then stuck my little cabin scene on. Voila....a wintery scene through the window! The pine boughs are Martha Stewart; sentiment is from Beccy's Place & I made that tiny little bow with my own two hands! (actually made 10 of those little bows & there may have been a few bad words uttered in the process!)  I am well on my way to finishing my Christmas cards....about 10 more to go & a few gift card holders. How about you? Almost finished? One month from today is Christmas Eve!

Hugs, Renee
