Another day, another card ~ or two!

Good morning everyone. It's still morning isn't it? I slept in a little late this morning.

I wanted to show you this card first. My DD was off on spring break last week. I felt so sorry for her. Her BFF who lives down the street was not around last week. She went to her grandparents house to spend spring break. Well when Danielle knew that she was coming back she wanted me to make a card for her. I asked Danielle why and she said "because she likes to get cards and she loves spring". This is true, the first day of spring she asked us to make her a card and I asked what for she said "because it's the first day of spring silly". I asked my DD to pick out something for the card and she picked out the Sweet Skunks set. I told her I could not do that one, she might be offended! Of course Danielle said no, she likes cute and the skunks were cute. I could not argue with that!

So for the card..... I used Tempting Turquoise for the base card. I layered that with papers from the Lilly Anna collection. I wrapped a length of ribbon around one of the panels. I then stamped the image and colored it in with pencils. I did use my markers on the flower. I punched that out with my Giga scallop circle punch, sponged some Brilliant Blue ink around that then layered that on to a piece of Brilliant Blue that I cut out with my colozzle. For a bit of sparkle I used my Sakura gel pen and I was done.

This next card I made with the awesome tutorial from SCS that you can find here. It was their tutorial of the week. I always enjoy seeing what they come up with next. Kinda being out of touch from the stamp stores and shows I look forward to what they post.

This card I made for a friend's sister that I sent a catty to. I think these cards are so cute ~ and so is that little chick. I used the Hey Chick set. I've not inked that one up yet, and thinking that I've got new sets I thought that I should at least use this one once!

The base card is Purely Pomegranate. I layered that with a piece of Chocolate Chip and a piece of DP from the Rustic Chic collection. I stamped the chick and colored it with pencils. I punched that out with my Mega Scallop Circle punch and sponged Old Olive ink around the edges. I then punched out an oval with my Giga Oval punch. I 'faux' stitched around the edges with my gel pen and then punched holes to give it a more "stitched" look. I did the same around the top flap of the card ~ but for some reason the needle was sticking. I could of been punching too close to the edge too. Then I added some ribbon that Mom just received in a prize package and I was done!

These cards are so simple to make, and they are quick and easy too! Maybe give one a try today and let me know who you did!

My DD's got an orthodontist appointment today ~ so I'll be back tomorrow!!
