More cards....I LOVE vacation!

Isn't this the truth?? Home IS where my heart lives....my favorite people and animals live here! And I have so enjoyed my vacation...got a lot of "tidy up" done and a lot of relaxing stamping, too! This card is my SBS challenge sketch for April. I have been just dying to use my Primitive Beginnings from Cornish Heritage Farms. I have also wanted to use the Prism paper I won months ago...I love the colors (Brown Suede collection) and they go so well with the DP from SU, Apple Cider. (retired). The paper has this great "orange peel" texture to it and it really is a dream to work with! This challenge is by my SBS sister Lulu. It looks like this:








Here's another card I made last week for a friend who is recovering from surgery. I received this Tilda Magnolia image from WishRAK as I love these images so much, I wished for them and a lovely SCS friend sent me some! So nice! The DP is also from Wish RAK and the cardstock is Papertreyink's Berry Sorbet....this CS is delicious!! I mean not just the name...but this color is so beautiful, it looks good enough to eat! All the colors are wonderful! The sentiment is from PTI's Mixed Messages and the brads are OTC. This little girl has my hair color...you didn't know my hair was Copic Set B, color E08 did you!!!??? I outlined the image in Copic's cool grey no. 1 to make her "pop" out a little more; can you tell?? It's a technique ;).


Now, vacation is almost over, but I plan to use the rest of it very wisely...still, I wish I could be like my kitty, Grace, here...Lie around all day and take a nap from watching me stamp, stamp, stamp....ah, to be so lucky!!

Enjoy your Thursday!!
