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!!!!
