Three Cards for Sunday

Happy Sunday.  Today, I made a card for two challenges that are new to me.  Some Waltzingmouse fanatics have started a new challenge blog, appropriately called Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge, and their first challenge is this sketch.   I don't know why it has taken me so long to play along with Addicted to CAS, but I am finally playing, better late than never. 

I used two types of embossing on this card--heat and dry, so I will also be entering it into this week's Simon Says Monday and Simon Says Wednesday challenges to use embossing.

My next card is also for this week's Simon Says Monday and Simon Says Wednesday challenges to use embossing.  I was inspired by this very fun card on the Paper Smooches site by Laura Bassen.  I used a very old SU set called It's a Girl Thing.  I colored all the shoes with a variety of Copic Markers, and added lots of Stickles all over.  The sentiment is from PTI Green Thumb--I just love this sentiment.

And, I pulled out another old SU set called Cheers to You for this next card that I made just for fun.  It will be good to have some sassy girlfriend cards in my stash.  This card is also based on this card by Laura Bassen.  I colored the drinks with Copics, and then coated with lots of Glossy Accents.  The sentiment is on two lines, and I used partial inking to stamp it all on one line.
