FTTC 99 and Mojo Monday

This card was made for Florishes Tuesday Challenge... their 99th challenge. Be watching for their 100th next week! I didn't plan to make two purple cards back to back, it just sorta happened. This paper is Basic Grey's Wisteria. I love this paper. The cs is SU. The rhinestones are KaiserCraft. I colored the cute spring image with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. The sketch is from this week's Mojo Monday. That's about it. Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Marlene's Sketch #50

I love the stamps/images from Sugar Nellie. I had noticed that most of my stamps are spring/summer! I need to broaden my collection! This stamp is "Planting Some Love". I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol and cut it out with Nesties. The paper is DCWV Nana's boy. The pearls are KaiserCraft. The ribbon is from my stash. The cs is SU. I sponged around the image with chalk. That's it. Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

New Beginnings

Spring and flowers always signify new beginnings for me. So I chose this Gruffies stamp with the Wheelbarrow and potted plant to signify New Beginnings for spring... even though it's still a long way off! I colored with Copics. The paper is Making Memories English Garden and the ribbon is also MM. I used the sketch from Sketch N' Stash #52. I used my Nesties Oval scallop to cut out the image and popped it up on foam dots. That's it. Thanks a bunch for lookin'!

Happy Birthday Kathy

Hi! I made this card for one of my oldest and dearest friends, Kathy. Her birthday is the 7th. This is for Whiff of Joy's 94th challenge. I like Kim's sketch for this challenge. I used SU cs red and Basic Grey dp. The flowers are Prima and the pearls are KaiserCraft. The ribbon is Offray. I colored the image(s) with Copics. I Stamped Willow then covered the image and stamped the chair using my Stamp-a-majig for the very first time! (I've had it for months) I used the stiped paper to look like wallpaper. I cut the stripes out using Nesties Label 16 the largest one. I cut out the chair and Willow and popped them up on foam squares. Think it turned out ok.
Thanks a bunch for lookin'!
