Good Morning everyone!

I thought I'd post a quick card or two before I get my day started! So much to do, so little time.

I made this card the other day using my TAC™ set Spring Dream T2688. This set is so cute with the funky doodling. And with the bright orange color it just jumps at you!

The base card is Apricot Appeal. I layered it with some DP from our Brighten my Day collection. I stamped the image twice and colored it in with my pencils. I used pop dots to add the 2nd layer of the flower and the butterfly to the card for some dimension. I sponged some Pumpkin Pie ink around the edges and layered it on to a piece of Pumpkin Pie cs that I cut using my Coluzzle.

I then stamped some swirls from the same set with Apricot Appeal ink on to a piece of Apricot Appeal cs, inked the edges with Pumpkin Pie and layered it on to a piece of Pumpkin Pie cs. I stamped the saying "just a note" from the Trendy Greetings set T2144 in the corner in Pumpkin Pie ink. Once everything was layered on the card I then took my orange stickles and went over the dots in the swirl pattern. It's hard to tell in the picture, but IRL it looks great.

This card I made is using theangelcompany™ set An Udder Birthday T2642. I just love the little cow images and this one is no exception. There's lot's of colors on this card, but I wanted it that way.

The base card is Basic Black. I layered a piece of Apricot Appeal and then a piece of Purely Pomegranate that I ran across my Scor-Pal first. I then took a piece of Basic Black, layered a piece of Eggplant Envy to that and ran a length of ribbon over the top of those layers. I added the sentiment in the square of the hardware then added it all the the card.

I stamped the cow and colored it in with pencils and Gamsol then sponged some Eggplant Envy around that layer. That panel I layered on to Eggplant Envy and Basic Black before adhering to the card. Once it was on the card I added the stickles to the water to give it some punch.

I hope that you enjoyed these two cards, I have more to come. But not now. Come back maybe tomorrow and I'll show you some more... have a great day!

NOW! I do need to ask. How's it you're storing your stamps? I've been seeing those nice covers with all the stamps of the collection and it looks SO nice that I'm jealous. You even color them! LOL. I know I may sound silly but it looks pretty neat.

I love the brightness of the spring dreams card! And your cow card is adorable. I always have a hard time coloring the cow and really like the way you did yours. Great job Joani!

Fabulous cards!! Gotta love that cow! I admire your indexing...I just can't do that. It's gets me thinking in only one direction. I just leave mine with the index on the cushion showing so I'm not coerced into coloring it all the same again. 'Course, maybe that's cuz I just don't have time!! LOL!!

Fantastic cards Joani! Love the dimensional look to the floral card. And the cow, too cute!! I'd love to relaxing like that right now instead of working on my 'to do list :) TFS! ((HUGS))

Such a pretty flower card. That cow is so cool. I think I have that set. I must make an effort to ink that one up real soon.
