My Travels to Ireland!

My Husband and I just returned from a beautiful holiday to Ireland and Scotland. One of the many highlights while there was having a pint in the Flannery pub in Ireland. I am sure these are long lost relatives of some sort! How cool was that! This is just a short post today as there is more to do since returning home but I just wanted to post a little bit of our trip. Stay tuned for more highlights

Maggie Monday!

These girls are just so cute! Coloring them is also a great way to practice with your Copic Markers. They just blend so nice. Again, I used the Cherry O papers for this card. I also used the NEW Glitz stardust glitter glue on the white Prima Flowers. It is hard to tell in the photo but it turned out really nice. I also got the crystal bead garland in the wedding section of Michaels. I cut out a small section to use on the card. They are very pretty.
I was also cutting out 3 scalloped rectangles with my Nestibillities for the card but when I was done cutting I liked the negative piece better than the 3 separate that went on the card. I like how sometimes you get ideas or things purely by accident...awesome!
Anywho...All supplies are Close To My Heart Unless otherwise noted.
