My Favorite Things Meets The Cat's Pajama's

Happy Monday Friends! I hope that your start to the work week was a great one! I have two cards to share with you today. They are for two of my favorite weekly challenges. The first card up is for the sketch for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club. You can find all of the details to play along here. I have had this little Pure Innocence cutie since her April release and decided that it was high time that she be introduced to some ink! She is from the MFT Crazy for Daisies set and she's colored up with Copic Markers (B00, B12, B14, BG000, C1, E000, E00, E01, E11, E25, E29, R20, Y32, Y35, YG13, YG63, and the Colorless Blender.) The patterned paper is from Sweetwater and I have had it FOREVER! I thought that it was time to finally put it to good use. It is accented with black card stock layers. I also did some machine stitching and I added some May Arts ribbon with a PTI button and some TCP Divine Twine. The bottom is finished off with the MFT Die-namics Double Scallop Border.

My next card is for the TCP Tuesday Challenge and this week, we need to use fabric. You can find all of the details right here. I used Jen Del Muro's June Sketch For You To Try for my layout. I stamped Big Bear on an old gingham shirt with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. Then I cut him out. I also stamped him onto a sheet of card stock. I colored up his ears, nose area, and feet pads with E40 and then cut those out and glued them to the shirt fabric. He is layered onto some Jillibean Soup papers and the MFT Die-namics Dainty Doily Die is made from Chocolate Chip card stock. The sentiment is from TCP's Like You A Latte set. I used some more of the shirt and a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock for the button accent that I made with the TCP Button CutUps. Some Baker's Twine and a touch of faux stitching finish this one off.

I'd like to leave you this evening with a special photograph. On Saturday, I had the pleasure of meeting some "Stamping Royalty". My delightful friend, Linda Monroe and I headed into Boston to become "Copic Certified". The class was taught by two very lovely and talented ladies...Lori Craig and Debbie Olson! I was lucky enough to be sitting next to the very sweet and talented Joanne Basile! What a FABULOUS day!! Just in case you were wondering...Linda is the one with the pretty purple glasses. Lori is the tall blonde. Debbie is the tall brunette. Joanne has the pretty green top, and I'm the short one in the middle...lol! Thank you for visiting with me...Toodles! :D

Both cards are adorable!! First of all love the daisy girl {no, I don't have her and had to say NO with my last order... other things on my list} and the bear with gingham is wonderful and absolutely perfect for the challenge. Lastly, wow...what fun to meet all those folks at the certification class... a "little" jealous here, LOL!!

Okay, I am in love with both of these, so if you aren't going to use them. LOLOL Your adorable little girl with the daisies is adorable and the teddy is a keeper too. I have been fighting those Die-namics, but this may have hooked me.
