What a beautiful day it has been here on Prince Edward Island. My DH and I went yard sale shopping this morning and picked up some terrific bargains, including a deluxe food dehydrator for $10 and a 3-CD stereo system for $35 that works great.
I made two cards today for challenges at Sweet N Sassy Stamps. The first card is for the Say It With Scripture challenge. It uses a scripture digi from SNSS and an image by children's author/illustrator, Elizabeth Dulemba. I made the leaf paper with a combination of stenciling, inking & embossing. The DPs are from SU and the buckle was in my stash. I inked and embossed it to spruce it up a bit.
My 2nd card is for the SNSS "Crazy For Cocoa" weekly challenge. Cocoa is a little mouse that makes me go, "Awww.." all the time. This week's challenge is to use a ball on your card. I had this Cocoa image already colored and ready to go, so I added a ball of yarn. Hopefully that is acceptable for the challenge. If not, I still had fun making this card.
I made my own sentiment, though the words are far from original. The fancy frame is a SU stamp that I won in a silent auction at a SU party Thursday night. The ball of yarn image is clip art and the DP is from a new K&C paper pad I bought today. I faux stitched with a push pin and white gel pen around the card edge and DP edge. I hope you like Cocoa as much as I do.
Thank you to everyone who takes the time to comment. It really brightens my day. I don't always comment back here because I like to return the favour by commenting on your blog.
Have a wonderful rest of your day and I will probably talk to you tomorrow.
