Good morning everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was really good even though it went by a little quicker than I would have liked. I did get ample play time in!
Before I get to the cards I want to share with you, I want to remind you all to go have a look at the Squigglefly Blog because it's a new challenge today and today is Chelsea's group to shine! If you're lucky enough to have today off for Martin Luther King day, why not try to play along for a prize? There are a lot of FREE IMAGES for you to use!
The cards I want to share today were made for the Featured Stamper challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. The gallery we could pick from was a wonderful one!
The first card I CASED can be seen HERE, and here is my card

This was really fast to make! I used the tulip border from Spring Suite II and just repeated it along the width of the card. I used colored pencils to color it. Colored pencils on Kraft card stock just looks so nice!
I printed the words with my computer and pierced a row of dots leading to it. It's hard to see in the photo, but I also pierced the "i"'s in the wording. I used a 1/8th inch hole punch to make little notches on the sides of the card to help hold the twine in place.
Well, after making that I found another card in the gallery that she did on Kraft card stock and since I still had a piece left over I decided to make another! The second card I CASED is THIS ONE, and here is my card

I used the Flower Pot image by Rich Davis for this card. Again, it's colored with colored pencils. I added the speckles by using a brown Blo Pen. Those things are so much fun to use and I like the look!
I did originally hand doodle a line around the image like the one in the card I was CASING, but I didn't like it so I cut it off! I think this might need a sentiment added to it, but for now I'm leaving it because I can't make up my mind.
On the home front, yesterday my husband surprised me with an early Valentine's Day present! He went to the store and came home with such a surprise; he got me a DIAMOND RING! It's so BIG! Here's a picture of me wearing it.
(you don't need to click to enlarge - it's pretty damn big now!)
LOL! Isn't he just SO sweet?! I got a laugh out of it.
Wow! what a deal he got - only 99cents!
I'm off to see what the design team has come up with for the Blog Challenge now! Have a wonderful day, and thanks for looking!
