Some cards for you

Wanna see what I have been working on lately? O.k. so I haven't been working on much. We are starting to get ready for our move to NM in a couple of months. We are doing the move ourselves rather then have the Army move us so it is going to take some prep work. Ecspecially with my health conditions, I need plenty of time so I don't over do it. Anyhow, I have done a couple of cards though that I thought I would share with you.
This first one is actually one of my favorite cards that I have ever done but the picture isn't great at all. (My camera is old as far as camera's go -4 and a half years- and has been through a lot so the pictures haven't been coming out clearly lately. So I apologize for the picture. But I still love this card. my sweet DH always says that this little girl from the And Everything Nice set reminds him of the Morton Salt Girl. LOL
Anyhow, I stamped this onto Shimmery White CS using Staz-On ink. I watercolored it using one of my current favorite methods using markers and an aquapainter. The stitching is done by hand using the crafter's tool kit and a thread and needle.
Stamps: And Everything Nice, Paisley
Paper: Groovy Guava, Ballet Blue, Shimmery White
Ink: Staz-On
Accessories: crafters tool kit, needle, thread, ribbon, markers, aquapainter

O.k. So after that last picture didn't turn out so well I decided to see what kind of picture I could get from using DH's camera that he bought while in Afghanistan. As you can see these pictures are much better so I will be using his camera from now on. ;o)
Stamps: Year After Year, Sincere Salutations
Paper: Ballet Blue, Whisper White, Prints paper from TAC
Ink: Staz-On
Accessories: crafters tool kit, ribbon, markers

This last card one I created for my neices birthday. It actually started out by me just playing around with watercoloring. After I finished the main image I chose to turn it into a card and this is what I came up with.
Stamps: And Everything Nice, Sincere Salutations
Paper: Orchid Opulence, green Galore, Shimmery White
Ink: Staz-On
Accessories: cuttlebug, stylized flowers embossing folder, primas, ribbon, brads

Maybe someday if I get around to it I will take a new pic of the first card, but who knows. For now I need to work on organizing my craft stuff and getting rid of the stuff I don't use so it will make it easier to pack it all. :o)
