Two Sketches to Share!

Happy Monday Friends!  Hope that you are all well.  I know that it has been a long time, no see.  School has started here and things are quite busy for all of us!  Things are a bit more crazy than usual because I started a brand new job!  Instead of staying in my district and being an assistant teacher, I headed to a brand new school district and took the position of a K-2 Math Specialist!  It is not my own classroom, but it is a step in the right direction and I am just as happy as can be!  Stamping will be on and off for awhile because of my new position, but I’ll be sure to make as much time as I can for it.
I was able to make two cards last night.  I’m thrilled with both of them (that doesn’t happen too often…lol!)  My first card is for the sketch from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club.  (Click here for the link to play along.)  I used one of the new a la modes from My Favorite Things.  The girl and sentiment are from the Polished to Perfection set.  I used my Copic Markers (BG000, BG11, BG13, BG15, C0, C1, C3, E000, E00, E01, E11, E13, E15, E17, E23, E25, E40, E41, R00, R20, R32, YR00, YR12, YR14, YR18, and the Colorless Blender) to color her up and then I layered this panel onto a piece of black.  My other accents include the My Favorite Things Fishtail Flag Die-namics, the File Tab Die-namics, the Little Open Scallop Strip Die-namics, and the Botanical Beauty Die-namics.  All of the patterned papers are from My Mind’s Eye and I finished it off with a button from my stash and a little Baker’s Twine bow.
We attended the Woodstock Fair in Woodstock, Connecticut over the weekend.  It is a wonderful agricultural fair with animals, vegetables, arts and crafts, fantastic foods, and many other fun activities.  We simply fell in love with all of the different rabbits that were at the fair.  That was all the inspiration that I needed for this next card!  This sweet little guy is from the Wish set from The Cat’s Pajamas.  He is colored up with Copic Markers (E01, E11, E13, E15, R20, R22, YR20, YR21, and YR24) and then I fussy cut him out.  I used the sketch from this week’s TCP Tuesday Challenge.  (Click here for the link to play along.)  All of the papers are from October Afternoon.  I added some grosgrain ribbon, a couple of buttons from Papertrey Ink, and a scalloped edge with some red rhinestones to finish off this one.
Thanks so much for visiting with me.  Until next time…Toodles!  :D
