Friendship cards


I have been churning out the cards! I feel like apologizing to anyone who signed on to follow my blog as a scrapper ... I promise I'll be making more layouts soon. :)

The card above was made with 3 different challenges in mind.
1) Stamping with Markers Challenge in the Moxie Fab World (I used my Copics).
2) Color Combos Galore challenge for the colors as well as the idea to use the banner.
3) Card Patterns challenge sketch.

While I realize my Copics coloring is not outstanding and amazing here, I hope to get credit for the tiniest shading with Copics. These hot air balloons are SMALL!


I also made this card using the My Favorite Things card sketch for the Wednesday Stamp Club.


And if you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know that clouds are my favorite. When I finished this card, I realized it would make a really nice St. Patty's Day card for a friend.

Thanks for checking out my blog today!

I love looking at your cards! The one with balloons is so cute and brilliant with it's simplicity. And I love that paper on the cloud card not to mention the clouds!!!

ok, well, *I* for one do not feel cheated or unhappy by the presence of MORE LOVELY DIANA CARDS, that's for sure, missus!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (am i luring you over to THE DARK SIDE then? AWESOME!) :) :) :)

both of these are utterly lovely, of course, as is the "espresso" one below! i love your clean aesthetic...and yet...you're great at embellishing JUST ENOUGH...in just the right ways! ♥♥♥

ps: i tried to leave a comment on SCS for your AMAZING "cupcakes, clouds + baker's twine" card (that i am saving to my inspiration file!) but somehow it just WOULD NOT LET ME. very probably MY error, but anyway: that thing ♥♥♥SOOOOOOO ROCKS♥♥♥!!!

I love these! I am always on the lookout for new card ideas, especially "friend" type cards, so these are right up my alley!

love those clouds! I am always looking to find a way to use more felt, and those clouds are something that I will have to try! Great Cards!

Wow love both cards they are great. But most of all I love that card for cardpatterns how cute. Thank you for playing along with us.

Heidi said...

these are both so cute. and while there are clouds on only one, one could argue that the other card's white background is a giant cloud.

girl, you pointed it out once. i'm just running with it. ;oD
