Fun Day!

Hi all!

I have a very busy day ahead, so this will be a quick post. I made a couple of cards awhile back and never posted them. This first one uses Deborah's August CCC sketch. I liked the sketch and decided to make an extra card using it.



I used the Delicate Flower Flourish from Hero Arts. I tried looking it up on the Hero web sight with no luck. (I bought it at Michael's.) I colored the image in with Copics, and added some white highlights. The paper flowers were white and I colored them with Distress Inks.

This second card was inspired by Jacqueline. I have to admit that I've had the French Post stamp for quite awhile and never used it. I love the way Jacqueline uses this stamp! Here is my humble try at a collage card.



The other stamps used here are the Silhouette Fern and Silhouette Spray. The paper behind the stamping had a sort of crackled look to it. No idea where it came from.

I am heading to the new Target Field to watch the Minnesota Twins baseball game today! We are going with a bunch of friends, then out for the evening afterward! So excited to see this amazing new stadium! I've heard nothing but fabulous things about it. We are leaving a couple hours before the game just to have time to walk around, which everyone has recommended we do. I hope everyone's day is fun too! Thanks for stopping by! :)

Love your sketch card! Great use of that Branch stamp! The Jacqueline-inspired card is gorgoeus! It sure looks like one of her cards, but you made it your own! AWESOME work,Barb! Have a fantastic Labor Day weekend, my friend!
