Silly & Giggly Moments

Hello Friends!  I was hoping to post something crafty this weekend, but here I am on Monday evening instead.  My card is for the color challenge from the TCP Tuesday Challenge and the sketch is the August Sketch For You to Try from Jen Del Muro.  (Just click on the highlighted words to play along too.) 
I started off with this delightful new image from The Cat’s Pajamas.  It is from the Quality Time set.  I used my Copic Markers (BG000, BG01, BG53, E11, E13, E15, R83, YR20 YR21, and the Colorless Blender) to color up my image and then I fussy it out.  It is layered on top of a Kraft circle that I embossed with the Seeing Spots embossing folder.  All of the papers are from My Mind’s Eye.  I added a heart from the TCP Heart Trio CutUps and a Kraft button from My Favorite Things.  The Natural Twine is from Taylored Expressions.  A little distressing and some machine stitching finish off this card. 
Thank you for visiting with me tonight.  Have a wonderful Tuesday!  Until next time…Toodles!  :D

You're a Class Act!

Happy Friday Friends!  I’ve missed some of my favorite challenges lately.  Things have been SO busy around here.  Actually, I’ve made cards for some of them, but I just haven’t had the time to post anything or comment on some of my favorite blogs.

  Today’s Blogger’s Challenge theme is Back to School.  Click here to head over to Lisa Somerville’s blog to play along.  Having many teacher friends, I wanted to be sure to participate in this challenge.  So, I combined the Back to School theme with the sketch from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club.  (Click here to see the sketch.)  I started off with this adorable teacher and sentiment from the My Favorite Things a’ la modes collection called You Rule.  She is colored up with Copic Markers (BG000, BG11, BG13, E000, E00, E01, E23, E27, R00, R29, and R39) and then I fussy cut her out.  The notebook print is from My Mind’s Eye and the other papers are from October Afternoon.  I used the My Favorite Things Layered Rose Die-namics, the Double Scallop Border Die-namics, and the File Tab Die-namics.  My other accents include a Papertrey Ink button, some linen thread, and an older Cuttlebug embossing strip. 

Thanks so much for visiting with me today.  I hope to be back a little later on this weekend to share a few more cards with you.  Until then…Toodles!  :D
