"Just Us Girls" at Cards In Envy

Welcome! The new challenge at the Cards In Envy blog is "Just Us Girls." Remember, you can now make any size card as long as it is flat and fits in an envelope for standard mailing. Here's my card; it does have a bow, but the bow can be flattened quite nicely.

I am also posting my card at the May "Anything Goes" challenge at Crafty Individuals. I really had fun coloring this beautiful CI stamp!

Animal cards theme at SAS4Kids

I love this cute panda, part of a digi set from Tiddly Inks. So easy to use this digi; the only coloring was the ladybug, plus a bit of shading (which I can never resist doing).

I made this card for the Animals theme at Send A Smile 4 Kids.

One more for "April Suns & April Shadows"

This is the first time I used a "mixed media" background that I had made as a background for one of the MFT Pure Innocence stamps. I like how it turned out and hope you enjoy it!

The new two-week challenge theme at Cards In Envy blog is "Another Year Older"
You have two weeks to make any size or shape card (new rules) that is flat and fits into an envelope.
Here's the birthday card I made. I love this sweet digi. My bow is only one ribbon piece thick with a loose tie that squishes down quite flat.
