Feeling Tired

How is everyone doing today?  I am running behind on everything this week and feeling a bit more tired than usual.  I have been going non stop for over a month now trying to get thing done in and around our house.
I do have a lot to share with you just some of these cards were made forever ago.
This first one I was trying to get her done last week for our Blog Hop but I ran out of time. I finally finished her this week.  

I used Caron Vinson's "Scorpio" (Sheet #1 Plate #77) and cut her out and added some foam square for some dimension.
I used some Basic Grey DP., I love the colors in this papers.  I added some sparkle to her wings with a Sakura Clear Gel Pen.

For this one I kept it simple to showcase the beautiful image. This image is by our artist Katerina Koukiotis called "Secret Garden"  and she can be found on Sheet #3, Plate #159.

For this one I used one the ching chou kuiks black and white art images and she can be found on sheet 14, plate #43.

I used one of  Brigid Ashwood's Phunky Phairies sheet 2 (plate 75) called "Darja".

I wanted to make her with Mardi Gras colors.  I guess I am not afraid now to use primary colors any more.

Thanks for stopping by and there is still a sale for $2 each on a lot of stamps over at the Sweet Pea Store.

Go HERE to pick some up for yourself , oh and maybe a friend. You know Christmas will be here soon.


  1. Oh Angela... your creations always stun me by how simply beautiful they are... You are an amazing artist and no WAY could I ever pick a favorite... tho i do have a favorite thing about all of them... and that is the vibrant colors... just beautiful!!! thanks for sharing your gorgeous creations!

  2. gorgeous cards! love them all, the coloring is awesome as always and your paper choices are wonderful.

  3. Lovely work Angela, as usual. They are all very nice but I really like your pirate one best.
    Maybe because it is not adorned with the usual ribbons, florals and other stuff that weighs a card down or it might be that brown/black color combo...
    TFS and hope you get caught up soon!

  4. WOW!! My gosh the first card made my mouth drop open. The stamp looks so dimensional with your amazing coloring. Then to keep scrolling down to see your amazing creations. You are fabulous. Your cards are all stunning, not just the amazing coloring, the layouts, embellishments, flowers, borders, die cuts,...WOW.

  9. I adore all of your work Angela. I would love to sit and watch you colour, your talent always blows me away..

  10. Since everyone already mentioned what I would say, especially Renee, let me just say one thing:

  11. Oh my, girl, from where do you take all the time to be so busy in making cards ;o). The ones you show us today blow me away once again. Each one of them is so beautiful. My fave one is the first. Love the colours on it and how you made the image stand out. Truly amazing artwork you made.
