Challenge #7 - Brunette hair

I just got some new stamps and I think they are so cute. I am not a huge fan of mermaids, but this mermaid, Anya is so cute. I also think that Hope and Grace are little cuties too! All stamps are by The Greeting Farm. I made these cards for the Copic Creations Challenge Blog. I just stumbled upon this blog and thought I would give it a try. You have until July 14th to play. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday weekend!!

Wedding Congratulations

My son was a groomsmen for his best friends wedding. He asked me to make a card for the happy couple. The bridesmaid's dresses and the groomsmen's ties were the shade of green I used for the base of the card. I hope they like it. Green galore would not have been a color I would have chosen, but I think it looks alright.

PKS Challenge 02

Hi friends!
Peachy Keen Stamps is hosting there 2nd challenge. Here is my card for this week. I used PK-242 Train Set and the mini snowman. I stamped the train onto colored papers and cut them out. After cutting the windows of the caboose, I taped white cardstock behind them. Punched out some circles, for passengers, and put faces and hair on them. I used Copics to add bits of color to the images, glittered and cut out the snowmen. I cut a slit in the second train car for one of the snowmen to ride in. Put the other snowman on the snowy hill. Winter Wonderland is a sticker that I had from a couple of years ago by DCWV. The finished card size is 5" X 7"
