Happy 1st Blogaversary, Repeat Impressions!!



For my celebration card, I used Ode to Spring (2605-P) for the main image, Hurray…(1812-E) for the saying and Wild Daisies (4320-G) inside the card. I love making the easel cards :) They show the inside of the card as a part of the card front with nice presentation, don’t you think?  The image was colored with Copic markers and the white mats were sponged with light blue ink & dauber. I also used a couple different Spellbinders dies and punches. To finish off, I embellished with pearls, satin ribbon with button.







Here is the Blogaversary Hop List. Have fun with hopping!

Hi Maki,

What a beautiful card! I luv the punch border and corners.

Oh that's fab we can finally me! We definitely have to when we get settled in Houston. What city are you in? Hubby and I will be looking for a home close to downtown Houston because that is where he will be working. I'm super excited about house hunting. I hope we can find a home that has everything we want. Right now our home has everything except a pool so that is on my wishlist when we move :)
