A Beautiful Life... Stepping it Up!

Update: William is much better today! Thank you for your prayers and comments! :)

All our March Gina K Designs releases are now available for purchase! So sorry I had to miss the party for the first time in two years (did you even notice I wasn't there??) I am actually out of town right now, have been ALL week, but we come back tomorrow. I was able to pop in for just a couple minutes in the middle from my phone on the way back from the beach, but my son I fear scratched his cornea tonight* so this is a quick post of one of my "A Beautiful Life" card that Theresa uploaded for me during the festivities, thanks Theresa!

I stamped the frame on one of the quarter sheets of patterned paper included in the the new StampTV kit and the colored in the flowers and borders with Copics. TIP: I stamped out two butterflies to pop up, cutting one in half, you can use the halves for two side views of butterflies, this is a nice way to change up the image! :) I matted it onto Black Onyx and Bubblegum Pink. Easy peasy!

Now here is a quick step it up to add some punched scalloped corners and dew drops if you want to add a little somethin somethin! I wish I'd had my Stardust pen that day, LOL, too!

"have a beautiful day!"

*I'd so appreciate if you could keep my little William in your prayers tonight, I've scratched both corneas at two separate times and it was was the worst! I don't think it's as serious as mine or he'd be having a LOT more pain, but he's very miserable and hurting, and we have a big day of travelling tomorrow and the weekend coming up which makes trying to see a doctor tough. I will have to get my tip sheet for this new set up after we return!

Pretty cards, Melanie! I'm glad your William is feeling better. Eye injuries are so scary!

Melanie - what a BEAUTIFUL card. I do hope William's scratch is not too serious; eye scratches of any magnitude just aren't fun.
