Sunburst and I need help


Hi,
Last October I made this card for my daughter from an svg that I was fortunate enough to get from someone through blogging.  My computer crashed and I lost a lot of my svg files.  I wonder if anyone can help me with it?  This is not a die and I really would like to have this svg again.  Hopefully someone still has it in their files.
Thank you so much for your help in advance.
Have a blessed day.

Mother's Day card to my daughter

Hi,
Since Mother's Day is tomorrow and I have been slow in getting my card off to my daughter I posted it to her Facebook page.
The card is very tiny and I used the Daffodil edge card from http://www.birdscards.com/.  The sentiment is done with the pens for the Silhouette.  The daffodils are gold vellum.  Prettier in person.
This is the sentiment I used on Joy's card.
To my darling daughter, Joy 
The day I held you in my arms for the very first time was one of the happiest days of my life.
Thank you for the blessing of being your mother. 
Love you with all my being.
Love, Mom.
Have a Blessed day.

Butterfly birthday card

Hi,
This card was inspired by http://www.frenchiestamps.com/2015/04/butterfly-vellum-window.html .
France uses vellum and markers in her video but since I do not have markers I used some shaving cream technique cards and I am well pleased with the result.  I also don't have the punch so used a butterfly from the Silhouette Store and an embossing folder called Woodgrain from Sizzix.  The sentiment was part of a birthday card from Silhouette Store again.  I cut it from the same background and was going to use the letters only but they were too fiddly to take off the mat one by one and the card needed a bit of brightening so used the negative.
Have a Blessed day.

Sympathy card Faux silk


Hi,
I have no need of a sympathy card just yet but the poem here just cried out to me to make one.
The dandelion is from BeaOriginal site (sorry, at the moment I can only give you the site but not the link) and the poem is by Jerry Ham of Spokane, WA.  He writes the most wonderful poetry.  Jerry was kind enough to give me permission to use it on this card.
The card is done in my latest favorite technique (faux silk).  I cut the dandelion with my Silhouette Cameo and then used the pen and the Cameo to draw a silvery gray one on the envelope.  The faux silk is done in a silvery mauve tissue paper.  I think I like how it turned out. :)
I am sure you will have to click on the poem to read it.
Have a Blessed day.

Gone fishing birthday card

Hi,
Since my brother -in -law loves fishing I thought some of the Stampscape stamps would make a nice masculine birthday card.  I also used the off stamp to put a little interest on the envelope (sort of like a watermark).
Not much to say about it.  I used 3 stamps to make the scene.
Have a Blessed day.

Faux silk card

Hi,
Seems I might just be getting some of my mojo back.  This is the fun technique of faux silk.  I found the instructions all over the web but France Martin is the one I followed.
I don't have the proper pens for coloring so used some of my ink pad and a blender pen.  The results were not really what I had hoped for but practice makes perfect so will have to try again.
Have a Blessed day.

Halloween Easel card 2014

Hi,
After I posted the card from 2015 February and March's birthday party at Jim's residence I went looking on my blog for the other paper napkin cards I have made and realized they never got from the camera to the blog.  So here is one of them.  The technique for fusing the napkin on the cardstock is pretty simple but I have found you need to use the good cling wrap as the edges do tend to curl up after awhile so using a border seems to hold them down.  Also some napkins are 2 ply and some are 3 so they need to be pulled apart very carefully to make sure all layers come off.  There are a lot of how-to's on You Tube.
Hope no one minds a Halloween card in spring.  lol
Have a blessed day.
