Have you ever been embarassed by your children and you wish you could explain yourself but just never get the opportunity to? This afternoon after my oldest daughter, Nicki who is 9, was done with her schoolwork she went upstairs. I didn't think anything of it. I had to do something on the computer so I walked into the den and there she was on my computer, on Splitcoast, leaving comments using my user name on MY cards. Nicki is my biggest fan!! I love her dearly but did she have to make it look like I was leaving comments on my own cards. Granted she addressed it to "Mom" and signed it with Nicki but still...... The girls are not suppose to go on the computer without asking me but I know she was trying to surprise me when I looked that night. Well she surprised me alright!! How you can get angry when she was trying to be kind!!!
Well anywho.....The first card I am going to share with you is a card that I made using Jenn's SFYTT sketch for this week and a Penny Black stamp. I don't often get to pull out these cute stamps. I made it over the weekend when I wasn't feeling too great but even so it felt good to ink up this baby! A friend of mine wanted me to make her a cat birthday card for her daughter who loves cats. I watercolored the image and made it 3D. The flourish is spritzed with suede and gold glimmermist. The paper is a new Brenda Walton DP pack from Michaels.
Stamps: Penny Black- Why Am I Smiling
Paper: Brenda Walton DP, Mauve, and Bitter Chocolate Bazzill, Watercolor paper
Accessories: Pink Satin Ribbon, Pearls, K&CO Die cut flourish, EK Success punch, Prima Flowers, Paper Co. Brad from Michaels, sewing machine
The second card I made was for today's WT216 challenge to use Black. Since I wanted to make it look soft for a baby card for a dear friend, Jolene, who just had a darling baby boy, I decided to use black to frame the cool carribean DP and for the embellishments. The OCCC challenge was to use one of your favorite color combos and this is definitely one of them. The image is a baby dragon from High Hopes that was sent to me by my dear friend, Michelle of Mommy Time. (She is such an awesome card artist, if you have not visited her, you really should. She is a High Hopes dt member and my jaw hits the floor each time I see her gorgeous coloring and fab creations.) I colored the image with prisma color pencils and gamsol.
Stamps: High Hopes Baby Dragon
Paper: Martha Stewart Playful Blue, Cool Carribean CS, Black and White CS
Accessories: black pearls, EK Success mini heart border punch, Circle nesties, Prima Marketing Black Velvet Trim, glitter, Cuttlebug Textile Embossing Folder
