Enjoying the Day!

  Saturday is my day to spend a couple hours crafting...hubbie is working and the house is so peaceful and quiet. The birds are singing and I'm feeling, well, 'creative.'
  So, I have two different cards to share with you today. I should probably save one for next week, but I can't wait. I hope you enjoy (even though this post is longer than normal).

   Talk about a 'sunny Florida' look...I love how uplifting the colors in this photo are...and here's my card using the photo for inspiration.

   The layout was determined by Tuesday Morning Sketches-#201. BTW, I won some fab digital stamps from TMS in Challenge #199 and I just received them. I can't wait to finish those cards.

One For The Boys

  Yes, I'm still making masculine cards. Especially since I received a free digi from Hambo Stamps for playing in their challenge last week. It's so cute...'Bat Boy.' Their challenge this week was to incorporate a pennant or banner into your card (check out the challenge here).
   I incorporated the sentiment into the pennants at the bottom of the page. They were sponged with a bit of Memento Cantaloupe and Dandelion Inks. I didn't have any yellow twine, so I inked 3 strands of off-white with Copic Y06 and then used BG01 for the button twine.
