Lil' Red Wagon

This is for Challenge #41 "Summer Theme". I love this image of a baby inside a flower. I made this card for my niece's baby shower. I used a Hero Arts image, Copic Markers, CTMH dp paper, and a computer-generated image.

JUGS #46 Wild, Wild, West

I made this card using a Pink Cat Studio free image, DCWV dp paper, and a computer-generated sentiment. It is for my niece's baby shower next weekend. She is having a boy. The inside of the card says "YeeHaw!" which is from a CTMH set. I used Copic markers to color the baby cowpoke and his horse.

Two Challenges

I made this from a template that I purchased on My Favorite Things, using it for Cooking it up with Katie challenge #17, to do paper piecing, add something fruity, and a circle or two. I decorated it with some paper I had laying around and put a cherry on top. Sentiment is computer generated using "Snoopy" font.

The Pink Elephant

The Pink Elephant challenge theme this week is "Summer Fun". I know when I was little, nothing was more fun on a hot summer day than a big old popsicle. Here is Ella colored with Copics. I used DCWV paper and an MS punch for the grass.

Allsorts Challenge #64

Allsorts challenge was to use red, blue and yellow. The background of this DCWV paper is blue although the scanner did not pick that up. I hope they make exceptions for my branches and leaves!! I used the SU bird punch with yellow and red cardstock.

Penny Black/ABC challenges

This card is for Penny Black challenge "On the Beach" and ABC challenge "A is for August". I used a Penny Black hedgehog which I colored with Copic Markers and cut out. I used Distress inks for the background of the card, the sandy paper is something from JoAnn's and I drew the birds.

Making Margaritas

I had this card laying in a pile and thought I would throw it on here. I colored the images with Sakura jelly roll pens (love 'em!) and the inside sentiment reads "When life gives you limes, make Margaritas!"

House Mouse Vintage

This card is for House Mouse challenge #75. I used my Prisma pencils but couldn't find my blending stubs. So I had to color it and not blend. I made the crocheted flower and put a hat pin in it. Oh to have Great Grandma Rosie's button jar and old hat pins! I could slap myself for not keeping them. Who would have thought??? I distressed the edges of the paper with distress ink (vintage photo). I used a dp on the background that looked like an old newspaper.
