Play Time!!!!

Well I spent the day at home today doing nothing but fun things. I put the housework aside for the day and just took a day for me lol So I got to make some cards for some challenges. Seems like forever since I have been able to do this. So here goes.

Sketch Saturday


As always they have a wonderful sketch for us this week and I really enjoyed doing this one but hey I love them all lol.I used some of the new Magnolia's that a dear friend sent me I colored them with my copic's and spica glitter pens and I did use my glazed pens in a few places. I cut the images out and mounted them on a piece of SU cardstock that I had ran through the cuttlebug embossing folder. The PP is from K&Co aren't they gorgeous?? I so love there papers. I have used the Martha Stewart lace border punch and the easter stamp is one of the G stamps. I also punched out some daisies with one of the punches I had and really not for sure the brand of the punch.

The Sugar Bowl



Over at the Sugar Bowl the theme is to make a Mothers Day card. This was really hard for me since my Mother is no longer with me just brought back times I remembered so well but I made the card for my granddaughter to give to her mommy for Mother's Day. We won't have ours here in the states for awhile. I used one of the gorjuss girls I just think these are the cutest stamps and so easy to color in. She is colored in with my copics and spica glitter pens. I used some BG and K&CO paper here and some raffia ribbon that a very dear friend sent me. SOme prima flowers with a brad and spacer in the center with some leaf and branch punches. I hadded a SU button in the one corner and the punches for the wording is also from SU. The wording is computer generated.

Penny Black Saturday



Over at Penny Black Saturday Tracie has a wonderful sketch for us this week and I used one of the newer stamps I colored them in with my copic's and spica glitter pens.I used the Martha Stewart border punch for the middle of the card and used my retro flower punches for the flowers along with some brads and spacers. I also added some buttons in each of the corners. Thanks for a great sketch Tracie.

I can't believe it has been a year already.And I so love the new look you all have gotten. Katharina has done a very special sketch for the big bash and what a wonderful sketch it is. One I know I will sure use again.
I have used one of the Sugar Nellie images by Elizabeth Bell. She has been colored in with my copic's and spica glitter pens. The ribbon on top of the tag is from SU. and my raffia ribbon in the center (oh how I love this stuff) was sent to me by a very good friend of mine. Thanks dear!! My papers is from Su and I used the retro flower punches for my flower with the brad and spacer. And also my branch punch. The sentiment digital and from Design Originals. I want to wish you all at CCT a wonderful birthday and thanks for a great year ladies.
