Memorial Day card and matching envelope

Hello everyone; wishing you all a Happy Sunday and for those who get to have a nice long three day weekend I hope you are enjoying your self!!!
In the States here it's our Memoral Day weekend which signals the start of our Summer Season with warm weather,  out door activity, swimming pools and BBQ.  So to celebrate the Holiday I have a card to share with you today!

I made this card using a digital stamp from La La Land Crafts; this is "Saluting Marci"  she is SOO cute in her little out fit with her flag waving and her cute sparkly dog tags.  I colored her with my Prisma colored pencils and OMS.  To go along with my card I also made a matching envelope to go along with the card!

Please head over to the Scraps of Color page to see all the full details about how I created my envelope with my new Envelope punch board.

Fairly Amazing

Hello there in Blog land. It seems like I have moved to a once a month posting/blogging. Well not really, life just seems to be all around me and keeping me pretty busy, I have been home schooling my son this past year, and so that has taken a lot of my time from me, plus my older son is graduating High School next month and going to college in the fall so that has taken all my priority.. 
I have colored quite a few images ( coloring is and always have been my piece of mind), but getting them on to cards is just a different story,

Well I challenged my self to get a few cards done over the weekend and I have one to share with you all today!!... This lovely little fairy is "Lillian" and she is from Simply Betty Stamps. She is (don't know if she still is; but you can check on the SBS FB page) a freebie for the Face book page for SBS. Every month she gives a 'FREE' image for you to use in the monthly challenge, and you create a project with it, and then you can get the next month image free too..and if you don't want to participate in the challenge, you can purchase her in the store over at the SBS website!.
This month challenge is a color challenge. "White, Orange, Black and Yellow"...
I colored her up with my prisma and OMS.. and added glitter to her wings, kind of hard to see from the pictures. but trust me I added 'LOTS' of glitter!!! DP is from Echo park.

Here is a close up of her.. I just love her hair and wings.. Please stop by the SBS web site, to see all the other amazing and talented crafters.

Happy Crafting,
