Two for One!

Happy Saturday Friends! The weekend is here and it is a gorgeous day in New England! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? Even though it is lovely out, Cinderella needs to clean the castle, so those are my plans for today...lol! I did want to take a few minutes from cleaning to share two creations with you though.


First up, my contribution to this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge. The theme is transportation. My three little penguin friends are traveling by teacup...lol! This was such a fun card to create. The sketch is from Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I used the Ship Happens set from The Cat's Pajamas and a few Copic Markers (BG11, B18, C1, C3, E40, YR12, YR15, and the Colorless Blender) to match my papers from My Mind's Eye. The other accents include the Cloud Border CutUps and the Icing CutUps (turned it for the orange scallops), TCP Seam Binding and Divine Twine, a black Papertrey Ink button, some machine stitching, and the waves were made with the Die-namics Jumbo Scallop Die from MFT.


My other creation is for the sketch from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club. As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew that I would be able to use one of those fancy-shmancy mini Bingo cards that I've had in my stash. DH and I just celebrated our wedding anniversary, so I went with a "LOVE" card. I'll keep it handy for one of those days that I'm feeling really romantic...lol! The Pure Innocence girl is from the MFT Love You With All My Heart set. She is colored up with Copic Markers (E000, E00, E01, R11, E23, E27, RV21, RV23) and paper pieced with a houndstooth scrap. My accents for this card include the Simply Scallops Die-namics, the Pretty Posies Die-namics, some more machine stitching, and another Papertrey Ink button with some Black Licorice Divine Twine.

It's time to get back to cleaning. Thanks so much for visiting with me. I always appreciate it when you stop by. Enjoy the weekend...Toodles! :D
