My Sabbatical Ended This Weekend!

Hi everyone!  Well, I really didn't intend to take such a long break.  It just turned out that way.  I have been busy with Squigglefly stuff and have gotten a little bit of crafting done, but not much.
Did you hear the news on the blog that July's release is going to include three new artists?!  Isn't that exciting?  I can't wait for you to see all the new images.

This past weekend I did find myself with some time to play in my craftroom.  It was almost like starting over since it's been so long since I made a card!  But I guess card making is kind of like riding a bike because I made three cards!  Granted, they are very simple cards - but I like how they all turned out!

This first one is for the Teaparty at Splitcoast Stampers.  Our cards are going to a little three year old girl who loves pink!  She contracted e-coli and is having to have dialysis treatments.  Here's the card I made

The image I used is by Niina Niskanen and is called Bunny With Tulips.  I colored with Copic markers and computer generated the sentiment.  I couldn't resist giving him rosy cheeks!

The next card I made is one for my boss's son who has a birthday coming up soon.  He is a baseball player and loves baseball, so I chose Baseball by James Horvath for his card.

Once again, I used Copics to color with.  I chalked the sky and computer generated the sentiment.

My third card was made for my stash which has dwindled down to nothing!  I used Sandra Caldwell's image called Flower Tips.  It was a fun one to color!
