Three Challenges

I am entering this card into 3 challenges today.
1. Papertake Weekly, this sketch
2. Spoonful of sugar, birthday wishes
3. Corrosive challenges, mythical creatures
I used scrap paper that I had in my stash for the card base and stripes. I used a generic stamp for the birthday greeting. I used a Dustin Pike image that was a freebie. I love him. I colored with copic markers and used Rangers vintage photo to distress the image. I used my nestabilities to make the scalloped square that my image is printed on.

Pretty in Pink

Penny Black challenge 138 is Pretty in Pink. My scanner does not show the vibrant pink and maroon on my card unfortunately! This is a new PB hedgie image that I just purchased. I love my hedgies! I colored them with Copic markers. All the paper is from my stash that I'm trying to use up and I used a Martha Stewart punch for the sides. Happy Valentine's Day to all of you!

To Bud from the Cat

I made this Valentine's Day card for my friend Bud from his cat Tony. I love this image from Rubbernecker stamps. Only Tony could get locked in the washer by a mouse! That's how his life with Bud rolls! I am entering this into Drunken Stampers challenge which is no sentiment.

Some Bunny Loves You

My friend Bud has been feeding this beautiful rabbit outside his house. He puts out a paper plate with carrots on it. I asked him "What, no napkin?" I finally saw the bunny the other night. Bud has built a little lean to for him and everything. SOOO...being the smart a$$ I am, I had to make this Valentine card for him from the bunny! I am submitting this to Crazy 4 Challenges (hearts), A Spoonful of Sugar (let's see some love),Papertake Weekly (have a heart), and finally to Crafty Ho's (love theme). Have a great Valentine's Day everyone!

Evan's Valentine's Day Card

My little buddy Evan loves Buzz Lightyear. He goes to a preschool and they will have a Valentine's day party. Evan was given a choice of a monkey, a dinosaur, and Buzz. Of course, he chose Buzz! I colored it with Copics. I think we are going to do a match pack card and put a small pc. of Hershey candy inside. The card will probably read "Be my Valentine to infinity and beyond!"

CPS Card Sketches #203

Penney-Torrente stamp from Stampotique "Girl with Lunchbox". In this case it is a Doctor's bag. I used dp from my stash, an unnamed love stamp, manilla folder and heart and lip stickers. I used Copic Markers to color the image.
