Some Good News and a couple of Cards

Happy Saturday!! Just popping in with some news and a couple of cards.

First, my dog has rallied and seems to be better. It was a ROUGH week all around but he is back to his whining for what he wants and begging for food like a champ. I was so afraid he would pass away before my daughter came home from college. However, she is home now and he is happy as any pup (or old geezer, which he is!!) can be to have all his people in one place.

Today I am posting a few cards in between Charlotte coming in to show me all the clothes she is trying on to see if she could keep them or get rid of them. She is the only person I know that loses weight at college!!

On my first card, I used the Fusion Challenge as my inspiration.

The colors from the butterflies on the door and I flipped the sketch so it was landscape.

Instead of the card base being one color, I shoe to layer a piece of striped paper on top of the tiny dots. The border is a combination of die cuts that I had on my desk and a border from some paper that was sent to me in a mini kit.

The stamped image is from WPlus9's "Hello and Thanks" stamp set and colored in with Copic Markers. I added some Glossy Accents and Diamond Stickles on top of some of the flowers when I was done.

Instead of the circle, I chose to mount the flower on top of a pink tag. The sentiment is a sticker from Carta Bella.

I have to say I LOVE how this card came out. I am really trying to use some of the patterned paper I keep hoarding so this was a win for me!!

For my second card, I used a challenge from a private board as my inspiration. It was to use a color inspiration challenge that had all these blues. I am HORRIBLE at color challenges but I thought this came out okay and was simple to put together.

The background was from my scrap drawer and the two die cuts were from Carta Bella's "Flower Market" frames and tags ephemera set.

I added some Diamond Stickles and two word stickers over the top.

I LOVE when cards come together so easily.

That is all from me today. I am off to do some playing on this National Scrapbook Day. I intend to try some techniques with some NBUS supplies I have in my stash!!

I appreciate you taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!
