Featuring Three!

Hi everyone! I hope you had as wonderful a weekend as I did! The weather was gorgeous so I spent a lot of time outdoors, but man oh man did my mojo kick in! There are just so many wonderful challenges going on right now that I wanted to make cards for!

Speaking of challenges, did you notice the pink Hope You Can Cling To button on my side bar? That's a very special card drive going on at Splitcoast stampers all this month for Breast Cancer Awareness. There is a new challenge very day this month, and fabulous prizes to win! Just click on the button to go read about it. I'll show you the cards I've made so far for that tomorrow. Today I want to show you some cards I made for the Featured Stamper challenge.

This first one was for last week's Featured Stamper. If you like to see the card I CASED you can see it HERE. For my card I used the Bible Plants image drawn by Laura Campbell

I colored with Copic markers and distressed the edges a bit. The card base is embossed with distressed stripes and I tied some cording around the card and tied it off through a button.

The next two cards are both for this week's featured stamper. The first card is really simple and sweet as is the card I CASED which you can see HERE.

My card used the cute Froggy Flowers by Eline Pellinkhof. I colored with Copic markers and sponged some Green Galore ink around the edge of the die cut. The sentiment is computer generated. The little scalloped border is from an EK Success punch.

Then I found another card in the gallery I wanted to CASE. It's really simple, but so pretty. You can see it HERE. And here is my card

I thought the From Tiny Acorns image that Lynne Stansbery drew would be the perfect image to use to CASE this card. Don't you agree? I colored this completely with chalks and the sentiment is computer generated. I found a cool leaf dingbat font called JI Nature Bats. It's free and you can get it HERE.

Okay, that's all I've got to show you today, but head over to Squigglefly's blog to see what this week's challenge is and consider playing along! It's so pretty outside that it's hard to go to work today! Hope your day is a great balance between work and play time! Thanks for looking!

Have a great Monday :)

Love all your elements here too! The second one will sure bring a smile...such an adorable image and I love what you did with it! Lynne's Tiny Acorns REALLY grab me! :) The leaves and acorns look so realistic and your fabulous chalking brings them to life! Thanks for the link to the font...such a creative way to enhance this theme! FABULOUS card! :)
