I just love the little snippets of life Alex creates. Spring is in the air and Mrs. McTwitter is out for a walk with her little dog Tootsie. Alex always adds so many details making her scenes so complete. She’s added little bugs flying around and would you believe actual leafy material (she said she got it from her dad’s train layout). I hope he’s not missing it!

Here’s a stackably fun card made by Alex. She used lots of different animals – cat, dog, bear, even a little ant and said that maybe they wouldn’t usually go together but here they are playing nicely together.

I always love seeing what Alex creates. I don’t think there is ever a dull moment in her imagination.

Here’s a fun way to personalize your morning cup of coffee. Alex sent this in and I just love it. There are lots of coffee tumblers out there and I know there are a few that can be personalized. The one that Alex made lets you unscrew part of the mug, create a picture, slip it in and screw everything back together.

She’s used just one stamp – actually a holiday stamp, but stamped it all around the insert and colored it in springy colors. Isn’t it just grand! For added strength she’s laminated the entire piece. So many possibilities!

I think this card is so happy. Alex put fairy wings on Gertie! I love all the purple- frames and text. She even added little white highlights on the letters.

I think Gertie probably loves her sparkly fairy wings. I’m sure she can fly. :)

Alex made this fun party card! She used Cupcake the dog (who already comes with a party hat) and then added a party hat to Go kitty go. I think kitty can’t wait to get to the cake! She added some wonderful sequins and glittered the whole card for sparkle!

Here’s a fun card using just 2 stamps. Alex made this and I think it’d be great for lots of occasions – wedding, drinks with friends, a birthday…

She stamped the tiny wine glass randomly in the background. She then used another piece of paper to stamp the big wine glass twice and made it look like it was actually “clinking”. She added some glossy accents to the big wine glasses and added some fun letters “Cheers”.

Here’s another fun birthday card sent in by Alex. She’s used the same balloon background paper as in the first card, but this time it’s all about the cupcake! Yum. She’s added lots of sparkle not only in the pink frosting but a little outline circle around the cupcake. I love the addition of all those buttons!

Here’s a fun card from Alex! It’s all about the balloons on a birthday – well, that and the cake. For this fun card she kept it simple and used just a few balloon stamps. She cut them all out, used some foam tape to give them dimension and if that wasn’t enough, she tied a string to each one! Totally cute idea.

Here’s a detail of the wonderful strings:

Alex stamped this fun little wintery scene earlier this month. While here in California we’ve been enjoying a little bit of rain intermixed with some sunshine, Alex sent me this picture…

 

She said when she woke up and looked outside her window this was the view!!! She said that the beginning of March brought snow while back in December they were able to wear t-shirts. Good grief! I told her it was a beautiful view and now someday I wished I would look outside the window and see something so wonderful. I’m not sure Alex agrees. :) But her card is, as always, delightful. And she did sneak in Smiling Sunshine including his sparkly rays.

Here’s a sweet card from Alex. I just love the die cut she used – it works so well with little Pixie Poppy.

Here’s what Alex wrote:
I used only the word “Believe ” from the “Magic of Christmas ” saying. I often use only one word from sayings, when I think it is perfect for a card. The whole card is full of glitter, but it’s a little hard to see in the photo.

The reason why I had stamped this card is that I had a little conservation with my youngest daughter. She told me, that a girl told her that fairies do not exist. I said that Fairies exist, but you must believe in fairies. She was happy and stopped crying. The next day at school, she goes to the girl and said to her:  ” It is sad that you do not believe in fairies, because then you miss something in your life. I’m so sorry for you. “

I thought Alex gave her daughter the most perfect answer. :)
