Do You Know How to Frolic?

I do! :)

Now that I joined the "Frolicking in the Forest" Swap on Splitcoast!
Thank you Forest Ranger, Jeanette, for letting me "Let My Hair Down" :) *giggle* I love frolicking!

So how do I frolic you may ask?
I pick flowers and talk to the birds in the Forest of course!

My stamp is from CC Designs....called Peggy. I colored her with Spectrum Noir markers. Then I used my SU spellbinders framelits for the shape around the image.
I used a "wire" embossing folder behind and turned it the opposite way for a different look.

I love how these turned out! Can't wait to get back some FAB cards from this swap! :)

I'm also entering my card at Cute Card Thursday - Springtime!

thanks for stopping by!

Until next time...

I {HEART} Bookmarks

Hi all!

I wanted to share a bookmark I made today.
We have a monthly challenge over at the Scrapbooking with M.E. Boutique's Members group on FB. This month's challenge is Hearts. Your creation must be heart shaped.

I decided to try my hand at a corner bookmark.

 I cut my heart base. Then, I layered on 1" circle punched from scrap paper.
 I then sprayed the entire thing with shimmer Mr. Huey's added some red and white....let dry
 Then drew some faux stitches around each circle and added.....
a button with a metal embellishment in the middle.

I had fun making this....I love the layered circle look!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today :)

Until next time...

I made my card 5.5" square.

I added a small red flower to the others that Debbie sent and some black card stock behind the image.
