Have a Happy Day

My fourth card for the CDACPC 12 Challenge.  The image is from Crafting with Jack,  A very pretty image for St Patricks Day Cards.  Made circles for the images and tied them together with narrow white ribbon to resemble balloons.  Coloring done with copics and white Pergamano Pen.  DP from ATD Momenta, Scrapbook Paper. 

Started this last night, but eventually had to go to bed - got very late.  This morning was on a new team for curling and we managed in the eighth end to get the extra points to win the game.  So, finally got a few minutes to finish the card.  Now I must go and make my husband some lunch!

Catching Frogs

I have used this image from Fred She Said before, for a Birthday card for a nephew on the west coast and I will use this one for a nephew on the east coast of Canada.  A cute image which I have colored with copics and then mounted on a piece of scrapbook paper which just said printed in China on the back.  I moved the bottom portion of the paper up for him to stand on.  A sentiment stamp was added layered with a blue piece of cardstock colored the same as his shorts.  This is my third card for CDACPC 12 the progressive challgenge.

I must say that I can remember my brothers hunting frogs in the creek behind our house when we were young and they always came back all covered in mud and goo.  One day they put a frog in my mothers teapot and when she opened it she got such a scare the teapot went flying.  They didn't try that trick again.

Mother & Daughter - Happy Moment

A beautiful image from A Day for Daisies.  I paper pieced the dresses, added Studio g glitter glue to the green one and Stampendous glitter to the pink dress. I then colored the ladies with copics.  To emblish the card I added a leaf diecut from Marianne Designs.  I added some pink glitter to flowers from Offray Stylish accents, which already had pearls in the centers and attached them to the leaves. A ribbon and pearls from my stash completed the card.

I seem to be running out of time to complete the cards for this session,  I will be away for the rest of the day to-day, but will try to be more productive tomorrow!

Celebrate it's your Birthday

This wonderful digital image is from Shelly's Images.  It is one of the images for the CDAC Progressive freebie challenge #12.  Due to many other things going on over the last few weeks, I was unable to take part in any of the challenges, but it was very easy for $1.00 to buy back into the challenge and download the five new images.

The image was colored on cardstock with copics.  I printed the image on a transparency and added the silver beads around the top of the glass.  I found this wildly colored designer paper in my stash and layered it on my card.  Then I added the drink glass which I had cut out - then the top layer - the transparency.  Last but not least the sentiment, a sticker from Miss Elizabeth's.

Happy Birthday Girlfriend

This great image from Bugaboo is perfect for a friends birthday card.  It is also to be entered in the CDAC Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge for Febuary (MMSC135).  The challenge now runs for a whole month. The image was colored with copics.  The designer cardstock is from my stash, and the pink rhinestone flourishes are from Recollections.

Not the greatest photo, slightly skewed, but this is the inside of the card, same DP as on the outside with a computer generated verse.
