My sister just left after being here for a couple of weeks vacation. We all had such a good time that I decided to make a card to send to her, using this weeks color challenge of red, green and yellow for Bloggers Challenge.

Beverly loves flowers and has worked with them for years at florists, nurseries, and her own greenhouses. So I thought my card for her should have at least ONE flower on it! :)

This lonely Hero Arts flower image has been sitting on a shelf in my stamp room for as long as I can remember so I thought it was time to introduce it to some ink! The wording is an image from Endless Creations.

I chose Stampin' UP's Wild Wasabi and Real Red card stock, along with some DP from both Martha Stewart and Jillibean. Copic markers Y11, G20,G82, YG17, R22, R24, and R27 were used for color, along with 2 little red snaps for the finishing touch.

I hope Beverly likes her card, and visits again soon. :)

I knew immediately when I saw this image of the little bookworm.....that this set was a must have for me! He is just so stinkin cute wearing those big round glasses! I smile every time I look at him. :)

This weeks Bloggers Challenge was "Back to School". Now how perfect was that....knowing I was just itching to make a card with my new little bookworm. LOL

With the exception of using Neenah Solar White card stock, Memento black ink and Copic markers R29, B21, B91,YG11, and YG95, everything else is by Stampin' UP. The DP is called Summer Picnic and was teamed up with Real Red and Brocade Blue. These wonderful little stamps are from the set called "First Day"from the summer mini catalog. Circle, scallop and the spiral border punches were also used.

I'm always in need of a birthday card so when I saw this weeks challenge for Bloggers Challenge was to make a birthday card...I was a happy camper! The image I picked for my card is from a set called Crazy for Cupcakes by Stampin' UP! The small greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes also by SU. Whisper White was used for my background card stock, along with Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight. The DP is from the Razzleberry Lemonade collection all by SU. Also used were oval and scallop Nesties, Rich Razzleberry polka dot grosgrain ribbon, yellow brads, an oval and modern label punch, and 2 small pink adhesive jewels. The image was colored using R27, E11, Y21, W7, R83, and R85 Copics, and finished off with lots of glittery Star Dust Stickles!
