Happy Hump Day!!

Happy Wednesday everyone!! So far this day has been pretty tiring.

I was up all night with my dog last night. He has had intestinal issues in a big way and then had a MAJOR seizure at about 3:00 am. (He has been on seizure meds for 10 years.) Then, he couldn't move for an hour and had really shallow breathing. I debated on taking to the ER vet but he is old and we would not be doing any surgery on him so I wound up waiting and taking him to the normal vet this morning. Of course he did not act sick and ate this morning after keeping me up all night!! Anyway, we are trying a few things but it just has not been fun.

Today I am going to showcase some cards I created using some of the papers and images that I won from Lisa Elton from My Paper Tales. Below is a photo of the kit and the beautiful card she sent.

It was a mini kit and it was so FUN. I kind of failed, though, because I wound up mixing some of the images with stuff from my stash. This was my fault because I should NOT have colored some of the images in without matching the paper first.

For the my first card, all the papers and images were from the kit. I did use a die to cut the frame and the bow.

The pattern paper is from Carta Bella's Spring Market and the flowers are from WPlus9's "Hello & Thanks" stamp set. 

I used Copic markers to color in the flowers and then added some Diamond Stickles and Glossy Accents over the top.

The center "tag" was popped up using foam adhesive.

For my second card, I used the pink cardstock from the inside of the frame as my starting point and matched it with the flower paper from the kit.

I added a Spellbinders frame, with a stamped sentiment that is from Memory Box.

Once again I used Copic markers to color in the floral images and then covered them with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen. The roses were then covered in Glossy Accents.

My next card I went off the deep end and added some of my own stuff to the card.

 The green background paper is from the kit. I added the rose paper that I had from my stash (a piece of 12" by 12" paper that I cut a strip from) over the green. Then I tucked a pink tag with some twine behind a panel I cut from another piece of patterned paper.

On the focal panel I colored in the roses with some Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss Pen and Glossy Accents. I added some Diamond Stickles on the tiny flowers.

The entire black panel is then popped off the card with some fun foam.

For the last card in this bunch, I totally went off the kit. I only used the stamped image.

Isn't she sweet? I colored her in with Copic markers. It isn't really no line coloring because I could not cover up all the lines in the stamp but I think it is cute.

That brown piece of patterned paper is from my scraps and is about six years old!!! I added a purple frame that I die cut using Sunny Studio's "Fancy Frames" dies. This has never been used and I will definatly be using this again!!

The thanks was die cut using a SSS die.

I will be entering the first card in the Water Cooler Wednesday Challenge #219-Anything Feminine Goes.

That is all from me today. I thank Lisa for sending me this fun kit. I hope you all have a FABULOUS day!!
