I went to a store recently, called Archivers, that had these Inky Antics on sale. I've been wanting to try them for a while but thought they were a little pricy especially since the HoneyPOP paper is sold separately. However, since they were on sale I decided to try these adorable little guys. This card I made for my aunt who lives in Portugal and I hope she likes it.

My dad turns the big 6-0 this year! He paints portraits as a hobby and so when I saw this stamp by Sheena Douglass, I knew that this would make the perfect birthday card for my dad. His birthday isn't until the middle of June but for the first couple weeks in June, I will be visiting a great friend of mine in the state of Washington. Therefore I will not be posting as frequently. Enjoy!

I find it very difficult most times to make a "manly" birthday cards. Fortunately the Open Sea and Need for Speed stamp set from Stamping Up! help out A LOT!
I used the Gina K. method of making the background of the sea card look like a "pillow top". I had inspiration for the Need for Speed card but I just cannot find the link to where I got the idea.

I just love this dancing couple, so sweet. This stamp as well as the "Always and Forever" are both from Gina K. Designs. I made both of these cards as Anniversary Cards for two special couples. I really like the way they came out.

As you have probably already noticed, I'm addicted to Whimsy Stamps. Especially the one by Elisabeth Bell. This one is called Blossom Berry Sitting Pretty. I just thought it came out adorable! I made this for a special little girl who turned 12 this year. She really liked it.
This card is also made with a Whimsy Stamp, but it is from the Wee collection. I believe it's called Rosetta. This card is also made for a little girl, and I just adore it! I colored both cards with my trusty Spectrum Noir markers. These are both a little more "frou frou" than what I normally do but perfect for little girls!

This past March my husband and I renewed our vows. We did not have a very big wedding when we first got married due to him being hospitalized after coming home injured from a deployment in Afghanistan. So this past March, on our third anniversary, we decided to renew our vows with our closest friends and family.
In a joint effort my mother (Lena Fonkert) and I came up with these wedding invitations. My colors were Malibu Blue, White, & Silver and these invitations came out just stunning! We used white linen paper as the invitations. The bellyband was created with a Martha Stewart Punch, and the inside and outside of the card was cut using a Marianne Creatable. Below the invitations is a picture of the RSVP card that we designed as well. We had a wonderful time and are so blessed that we were able to renew our vows and celebrate with our closest friends and family!
