Hello, hello. I am here on Sunday night, posting the results of my crafty adventures this weekend.
First up is an Easter card that is headed to one of my mother-in-laws (the Catholic one!). I used the sweet smaller tulips from PTI Tulip Time.
I am entering this card at Less is More #268, where the challenge is 'what's outside your window'. It is officially spring here in San Diego, although our winter often feels like spring or sometimes even summer. Tulips are out everywhere, and that is what I see from the window of my car when I am driving around. I am also entering this card at Paper Players #287 where the challenge is clean and simple spring.
I have another Easter card, this one for a friend, and I used PTI Spring Woods.
I used the PTI Pretty Frame die as an impression plate, and also sponged a bit of Spring Rain ink right under my focal point.
For my next card, I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #228 and the colors from Color Throwdown #384.
I am also entering this card at Simon Says Monday: Use Some Lucky Stars--if you look along my left panel, you will see some very teeny and very lucky confetti stars.
I used PTI Confetti Toss for the left panel, Hooray for the streamers and Bold Blossoms for the sentiment.
Saving the best for last, this next card is my favorite of all the ones I made this weekend. Honestly, I don't know why, but I really am loving these Happy Birds I just got from WPlus9. I started with the sketch from this week's CAS(E) this Sketch #164.
I didn't want to do too much to color these birds, so I just took some of my lightest and palest Copic markers and lightly colored the lower part of each bird. Then, I outlined the birds in Copic C1.
I forgot to take a photo of the inside of the card, but I stamped "It's Your Birthday" and a couple of small images from PTI Good Times inside the card. I am also entering this card at Seize the Birthday no toppings and Simon Says Wednesday Cute and Cuddly.
That's it for me today.
Thanks for Visiting
