For The Girls

Hi There
I do hope you are enjoying a lovely day. The cooler weather is helping our firefighters and no red flag warnings is a blessings. The fire isn’t out yet but there isn’t as much smoke in the air today. It is so lovely to see blue skies.

I am so happy to share a few girlie cards with you today. I love my male family and friends but making cards for them really tests my Mojo and it seems so many of them have birthdays this time of year.

For my first card I’ve used an old Stampa Rosa Inc. stamp found in the thrift shop some time ago. I’ve colored her with pencils, masked it and did my clouds while still in SB Labels Three. I cut around the fairy just enough to allow me to slip my sentiment behind her. Glitter glue was added to her wings and the flower stamens. Don’t you love that lady bug? People just love lady bugs, I find everything I put them on sells well at the craft fairs.

My next two my cards share the same LO but made in totally different colors. For the purple card I tried inking my SB Labels Four and rather like the effect.

Thanks for stopping by and especially for your lovely comments. I feel a bit like the White Rabbit, ‘I’m late for a very important date’ So many cards still to make before I can even begin with craft fair projects. I will find some time to visit with you all soon but for now it‘s back in the Closet.


  1. Great cards Bernie especially the middle one - but then I love blue.

  2. It looks like you are having fun in the closet, even if things are busy! Three terrific cards here, and like Marie-Louise, I especially love the blue one.

  3. Beautiful card, Bernie. I guess we are all loving the middle card...wow!

  6. Aw Bernie, your MoJo is there in FULL force! These cards are wonderful. I especially love the fairy layout and what you did with the spellbinders. Both are just lovely cards, and I'm SO happy you are able to get back to your Closet. Also very happy that Jim has so improved. Hugs.
