I Miss Your Voice

Hello friends!  It has been a while since my last post.  I have been a bit busy with outdoor things, like planting my garden and catching field mice! Yes, I think I need a cat, and maybe a goat to help with the weeds!  My card is for the MFT sketch challenge 388.   I used the needlepoint tag as a background.  I think it makes for a nice texture.

I Wheelie Like You

I have a card today for the Lawnfawnatics Challenge #28.  This month they have a sketch for the challenge.

I have had this adorable Lawn Fawn set for a while and finally inked it up. It always makes me smile!  I used Imagine sparkle shimmer on the cricle background after I inked with Atenew ink, but it doesn't photograph that great.

Happy Birthday

It seems that I have been making Birthday cards lately, but you can never have enough!  My card today is for the MFT Color Challenge #91.

I used several background stamps on the balloons with the challenge colors.  For the balloons themselves, I used the latest MFT card kit.  It is so adorable!

Handmade Hugs

My card today is for the MFT Color Challenge #90.  I used the MFT Bold Blooms set and Love is in the Air sentiments.  I needed a coral color and discovered that Distress Oxide inks can be stamped for a solid color.  I used Abandoned Coral.
