Curtain Call {Act 71}

Quick post--can't believe I got this done so quickly!! It helped that I had part of it started a few days ago.  Stacey's  Curtain Call colour combo just helped me add the kraft and mustard colours.

 Love the texture on that watering can bouquet (K&Company sticker)
 I know I'm a little ahead in terms of holidays--but you can never start early enough!

Have a great Sunday!!

Thanks 4 your time!

Embellish Challenge-Birds

I can't believe I got an Embellish challenge done within the first week it was posted!!  However, I still took me days to get card posted.
FAB colours--I can see myself creating another card for this challenge.

I went a bit lighter on the colour blue, but the paper inspired the whole design, so I went with it.  I started with another bird image, but swaped it for this Martha Stewart bird image; not sold that I made the right choice.  Nevertheless, here it is:
 The sentiment is from Verve stamps.  I free cut the tree branch.
Off to go play Mouse Trap with my son!!

Thanks 4 your time!

PTI February BlogHop

Here's my entry for PTI's February Blog Hop which asks for us to use scallops

I typically place punched/cut borders on the bottom half of my cards, with the scallop facing down; I tried something different (for me) on this card, and I like how it turned out!

Thanks 4 your time!

Embossed PTI Flowers

Quick post this morning--I'm submitting this card for the Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #32 (a new challenge site for me!)
It required the following:
1. Embossing
2. Use any floral image from PTI    (I used Delightful Dahlia--my fav) 
3. Spring colors

Here's my card:

I heat embossed the large Dahlia bloom onto Kraft cardstock, and then darkened the centres with Distress ink afterwards.

Have a great day!

Thanks 4 your time!

Curtain Call {Act 70}

Stacey's Curtain Call colour combos are always scrumptious; however, this one screamed Spring, which is why I jumped on it!!  LOVE this combo!

We had another snow fall last night; so depressing, given we just had a great thaw last week and I was so hoping we were getting Spring early.  Fun to create a card with such warm fresh colours.  

I made the following card a couple weeks ago, but never posted it.  It uses 3 of Stacey's colours, so I thought it would work well for this post (although not part of my submission for the challenge, obviously).  It's one of my first cards using Copics
Thanks 4 your time!
