Blogger's Challenge and a Sketch

Happy Friday Friends!  I have two cards to share with you today.  One from myself and one from my niece.  My card is for this week's Blogger's Challenge (use die cuts) and I followed the sketch from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club.  (Just click on the bold words for the link to play along.)

My image and sentiment are from the MFT You Anchor Me set.  I colored her up with Copic Markers (C1, C3, E000, E00, E01, E23, E25, E27, E33, E37, G07, G12, R00, R11) and then I fussy cut her out and used some foam squares to give her some added dimension.  All of the patterned papers are from Crate Paper.  I used the MFT Small Open Scallop Die-namics, the flag from the MFT Die-namics Sentiment Strips, and the anchor from the MFT Die-namics Sea Charms.  My other accents include a button from my stash with some Baker's Twine, some pearls, and some machine stitching (please excuse the wonky stitching on the bottom left...I thought that my sewing machine was fixed...ugh!!!) 

Now onto my niece's card.  She also used the sketch from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club (she is hoping to win their weekly challenge.)  She used the MFT Pure Innocence Blowing Bubbles set for her image and the sentiments.  All of the papers are from My Mind's Eye (she has great taste!) and she used watercolor pencils to color up this cutie.  I think that she did a great job for her first try on her own.  She even did the chocolate brown fussy cutting!  Now I really know what to get her for her birthday next month!

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit.  Have a beautiful weekend!  Until next time...Toodles!  :D
