Alpaca Birthday card

Hello! I am stopping in to share this fun card I created for my boss's daughter. His family just returned from Peru and his daughter was crazy about the lamas there, so he asked me to make her a lama birthday card. I figure an alpaca is pretty darn close, she is turning 10 so I used 10 alpacas on the card. I used various distress inks to watercolor the alpacas . I hope she likes it . Going to play along with Lawn Fawn's challenge #7 watercolor. Be back soon.

CC&S 229

Hello, I hope your tuesday is going well. I'll be very busy at work today, as the doctor I work for returns from vacation today. I see some coloring in my plans for tonight... I like to color to unwind, doesn't everyone? I created this for this week's sketch challenge at CC&S. Truth be told I really struggled with ideas for this sketch (posting last minute). I tend to make a lot of floral or butterfly cards and couldn't find a way to make that fit for this sketch. I finally figured this out after many attempts ( those are in the trash pile ). I hope you will join us . See you soon.

CC&S 228

Hello! I'm back with a card for this week's color challenge at CC&S. I'll admit when I 1st saw this combo I was stumped.I was telling my friend I had NO ideas on what I was going to do.  I recently purchased this stamp from SSS and wanted to try it with copper embossing, so it made this week's card easier. I watercolored the background and used a marker to fill in the blue. Overall I'm pleased with the finished card. I hope you will play along . See you soon.

I hope it passes soon. The stamp I used is from a Tim Holtz set , I embossed it in gold . Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will join us for this challenge.

CC&S 227

Hello ! Summer is finally here, so I thought I would make this week's sketch into a summer card. I used SSS stitched circle and PTI's flip flop dies. The sentiment is from Impression obsession and I used some scrap pattern paper I had leftover ( my mind's eye). I've accumulated a large supply of scrap and have made a goal for myself to try to use up some everytime I sit down to make cards. So stay tuned, there is bound to be some "vintage" stuff here somewhere. I really need to purge some stuff, just haven't found the time yet. I hope you will join use for this week's sketch challenge, I'm excited to see what everyone comes up with. See you soon.
