Bullfrogs and Butterflies

Today is Friday and time for the freebie from Designed2Delight. This week I combined this with a challenge on Technique Junkies Try that Technique, which this week is the Folded Pocket card. It is an easy technique, which yields a little notecard inside a pretty pocket card. On the inside of the notecard I put the sentiment Toadally Awesome, so I was able to use one of the images and two of the sentiments Faye offered.

Life really is a balancing act

When I saw this image from Designed2 Delight today I thought of how young people have to balance so many things to stay afloat in their everyday lives. All I have to balance is a couple of part time jobs and a couple of fur babies. Not difficult at all in the scheme of things.
OK, on to my card. I colored the main image with copics, but the background paper is colored with SU markers. I also used my Martha Stewart Cherry blossom edge punch.

Dancing Mice

This is another image from Designed to Delight. Every Saturday there is a new challenge posted on Card Ideas and this week the challenge is to make a card for a young child. It is not necessary to use a D2D image, but it is fun for me to use Faith's images. When I make a card specifically for a child I like to use bright colors but keep the design simple.

Let's have a Garden Party

I really look forward to Faith's images every Friday morning. This week I added three other images of hers to the scene. I am loving those white filled PNG images of hers. It makes merging the images so much easier! I am thinking I made the butterfly a tad to big-he looks like he could maybe hurt the little bluebird! Anyway all the coloring is done with copics.

Christmas already?

Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous. Sunny and warm and today is supposed to be even nicer. I did a lot of yard work and have more planned for today, but a girl has to have her priorities! I decided at the first of the year that I would make 5 Christmas cards a month so I would be ahead come holiday season. I have to do a card using the Serendipity technique for one of my group swaps and even though it is time consuming I love the end result. I made six cards using this technique-three of them for Christmas. I used two Nestabilities dies and a sentiment from TLC Creations.

Spotty Dotty Watering Can

Today it is cold but the sun is shining and that is a big plus. This week at Designed2Delight the image is free to everyone. Faith has designed a watering can with pretty flowers for us to use. I used my new Martha Stewart double edge punch and my filigree butterfly punch. I used my copics to color it, but paper piecing would work perfectly on this image.
