I used my cuttlebug on the bases, distressed the edges of the 2nd card and used my nesties on the third card. They were all colored w/prismacolor pencils and gamsol. I used a glitter gel pen to add a little bling to the computer and her "pearls" and a gel pen for the flower accent on her pants and the mouse! They were fun to make, so i hope the recipient enjoys them!

first is a card i finished last night while watching "so you think you can dance" This is probably one of my all time FAVORITE shows!!! and right now there are 2 couples I think are really good so it is alway fun to see what they come up with. Anyhoo, the card is colored with my Prismacolor pencils and OMS and I used some stickles in her hair and a metallic gel pen on her belt and guitar. I used glossy accents on her boots to make them appear like patent leather, cuz a rocker like her could pull that look off! dontcha think so!!! The tag is shrinky dinked and say YOU ROCK and i used my cranberry red ink pad to color it before I heat shrunk it. I think that turned out o.k. not sure if i would do it again, but i like it well enough for this card. I used SCS121 sketch challenge from SplitCoast Stampers for this layout.
Next is the Postalbella card I made for Heidi W. and hopefully she has received it or this may be a spoiler for her....so dont look Heidi! I tried to use the sketch, but OMG I could NOT make it presentable (although I do plan to keep trying!!!) so I improvised and did go ahead and use circles as part of the layout. The image is one i received in an image swap and I wasnt sure how to use her but then i added the buttoms and thought it turned out pretty good. let me know what you think....And finally, I am getting pretty close to 1500 visitors, so when I get there, I will be giving away some blog candy. I will post a blog candy challenge shortly and see what all you creative minds and my 3 loyal readers come up with......so get ready to start creating!!! and have a wonderful, blessed and above all SAFE 4th of July Celebration!!! There is nothing to compare to true freedom (which God gives us) and a special THANK YOU to all the troops and their families for their sacrifices!!!!

and a quicky update for those who care to read on: Aaron's Greco team finished 8th in the Nation (WOO HOO GO TEAM INDIANA!) At the USAW Cadet Duals this past week in Kansas City, MO and that means he got a Medal and they qualified as "ALL-AMERICANS" Ever just feel like dancing???? of course my "happy dance" may be cause for histerical laughter if anyone ever saw it! but he personally won 5 lost 5 (2 of which he should have for sure won if he hadnt hurt his back, but thats o.k. stuff happens and we are definetly NOT complaining!!!) Oh and he did help one of his team mates win a match ~unfortunately, it was because the kid from Iowa broke his arm during his match w/my son......and NO, it wasnt his fault, the kid made a big mistake and posted his arm (meaning he put it down to try and catch himself) and my son said it was the grossest sound he has ever heard....it snapped and went backwards....YUCK!!! SO anyhoo that created a forfeit for his team mate. Good for him, bad for the other kid! OK thats all for now, I promise to post some cards tomorrow or maybe later tonight after I get home.
