My grandmother emailed me and asked me to make her some cards. One of the members from their congregation in CO is in the military and is in Iraq. She has been sending him lots of cards, and she makes many on her computer, but she wanted some different cards to send as well. These are two that I made for her to send. The pictures really don't look that great, but it's the best I have right now til I get my scanner hooked up to my computer...or learn to take better pictures of my cards.
For the top card I used scrap papers and ribbon, the image is from SU! Loads of Love, and the sentiment is a stampabilities stamp I got from HL. I used colored pencils and OMS to color the image. Oh, and the ink is stazon black.
The bottom card is made with some dp I got from the dollar store, and a stamp from SU! For Father (I just LOVE this set!!). The ribbon is American Crafts...got it from Target. The verse is a sticker I found at HL. I used colored pencils and OMS for this image as well. The ink is Stazon black and Tim Holtz distress ink Scattered straw.
These were fun to make! TFL!

Finally the move is complete, the house is on the market and we are all well...for now. :) So I finally am starting to have a little time to work on my hobbies! Yay! This card was made as a gift for somebody. I used the sketch from Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #08 found here:

I just turned it on it's side and added a couple of things. I had some of my DCWV Nana's Nursery - Girl paper out because I had used some to make a set of thank yous for a friend that just had a baby, and I decided to try it with this sketch. I think it turned out cute!

All the paper is DCWV either Nana's Nursery - Girl or from the spring textured cardstock stack. I used colorbox chalk pink (can't remember exact name) ink, as well as a versamark green ink pad. The stamp is Stampabilities, the ribbon came off of a gift basket I got around Christmas time, and the pink "faux" dew drops are from Michaels.

I think I'm going to use this sketch some more! Such a great one! TFL!
