Hello friends & followers! I hope you are all having a happy Friday and have something fun planned for this weekend. :) Today I have two cards to share with you. The first I created for Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge 94 using SSD's 'Margarita Birthday' set and some yummy tropical pre-glittered patterned paper from DCWV's Citrus mat stack:
(Please click on the photo for clearer resolution). I know these tropical colors are not exactly seasonal at the moment, but they are happy and bright and I like them. :) I took the liberty of changing the circle to a margarita glass (LOL!) and the lime wedge takes the place of the star and is popped up with dimensionals (as is the glass). I added some Stickles (side note - mine are ALWAYS getting clogged - if any of you have some advice on how to unclog them I would be most grateful, inserting an unfolded paper clip into the opening does not seem to be working) to create the 'salt' rim and some seed beads threaded through a thin wire to serve as the wine glass ring. The inside says "...especially when the salt accompanies a drink and good friends."
My second card was created for There She Goes Clear Stamps Challenge 123 - to create a birthday card with pizzazz in celebration of their 3rd birthday. I opted for a CAS layout using TSG's 'Make a Wish' set:
(please click on the photo for clearer resolution). Again, I opted for happy, sunny yellow. Although, this is Daffodil Delight and the previous card used Yoyo Yellow - can you tell the difference? Maybe not with monitor distortion. The cupcakes were colored using my Copic markers and I have to say, my friend Lee might faint, but I liked the way they looked before adding the glitter. I thought the glitter was required for the challenge when in actuality the little heart shaped rhinestones I added to three of the ROYGBV cupcakes (I love color, LOL!) would have been sufficient to meet the challenge requirements. I just really liked the shading I did with my Copic markers and the glitter hids it a little.
Well, that is all I have for you right now, I might have something more to see this evening - I need to find something to take my mind that I have to wait one more day for TSG's Release Party (Saturday Night 9 pm EST - be there or be square!) and to fill my time since there is no Friday Night Chat at TSG this evening. (insert melodramatic sigh here). Have a wonderful Friday everyone!! :)
