Friday Cards

Tried or retried some techniques this week.

The Paper Cutz Challenge is to make a Get Well Card. Well, I needed a get well card this week. Came home from school early on Tuesday - before lunch - slept almost 20 of the next 23 hours and finally went back to work on Thursday. When I saw the digi of Halen (Sew Many Cards) sleeping in the tea cup, it seemed perfect! A little tea, a long nap. The digi as usual is colored with Copics. The paper is from Paper Pizazz (Paper Wishes) and the lettering was cut from Oh My Vinyl using my Cricut Expression.

The Sew Many Cards Challenge is a sketch. Click the link on the right to take you to all the information about this week's challenge. Duncan the Duckling (Sew Many Cards) seemed perfectly suited to the yellow/orange paper that I do not know the brand of, but which was purchased at Scrapbook Unique in Lenexa KS. The sentiment is Karen Foster and the Dazzles & brads are from Paper Wishes. The green/blue paper is Basic Grey.

Angela really is treating us with a special Friday Freebie this week. I love the watering can of heart flowers. I decided to make my watering can look like wood and I used double cardstock when mounting it to give just a little lift. 3 layers of Paper Pizazz papers and a cardstock border piece from Bo Bunny accented with gold pearls (5mm) from Mark Richards and I had one of my best cards. I was really happy with the way this one finished up. Maybe a little crooked, but I planned it that way. Yeah, I planned it that way.
