Taking a Break

Hi all, I just wanted to let you all know that I am taking a break from crafting and posting regularly on my blog and Facebook.  This also includes anything related to Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, but as always, if anyone needs anything, they are more than welcome to email me at sparklingapple17@hotmail.com or message me on Facebook.

My baby is due in July, and unfortunately, I've been suffering from morning sickness.  Since I haven't been well enough to really keep up with anything, I decided taking a break would be the best for me right now.  I still plan to post every once awhile, but I won't always be crafting.

Though, I do still plan to make an occasional birthday or event card that I'll need for my family and friends...so I might surprise you all from time to time. :)

Love Laptop Lucy Card

I made this card for Brent to write him a little note.  Lucy is Brent's favorite character (yeah, the card is kindof girlie, lol) so I decided to use her and some of my valentine paper.  The last few weeks, I've been doing some blog housekeeping.  I'll share more on that later when I'm actually done, but looking back at all of my posts...valentines are still my favorite kind of cards to make and boy, I have made a lot of them, lol.

I tried to do a texture technique on Lucy's pants, but I didn't start with the pants (which I really should of).  Since I didn't want to smear my image with Copic Colorless Blender, I decided to let it slide.  But I do love how her face shading came out!


I only ended up using one front panel, but more the most part, I used Viva la Verve Sketch March 2014 Week 4 for my card.


While I was at the crop with my friends a couple of weekends ago, I ended up buying more valentine paper, lol.  Though I'm late to the game this year, I think I'll end up making some love themed cards soon.  Hope you all have a great hump day!

Love Pink Ribbon Emily Card

My friend +Kristie Marcotte's sister was diagnosis with breast cancer and asked our craft group to make her cards to help support her during her treatment.  Though it's been awhile since Kristie asked, I felt well enough and had time to make a nice card for her.

At our last craft group, Kristie did let me know that her sister's chemo treatments are going very well.  Much better than the doctor expected, so we're all hoping the best for her! 


Kristie, her mom, and the rest of her sisters have been taking turns visiting, so I'm sure having the family support has been a blessing as well.

For this card, I used the My Favorite Things Sketch #168

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!  It's back to work for me!
