It's Another October Birthday Card!

This is a quick and simple birthday card I made for my friend Lisa ... I had to be careful and not make it too "girly". I used my Gypsy to lay it all out. The argyle card base is from Wild Cards (Lisa loves argyle ... I be she has a hundred pairs of argyle socks), the ovals are from George and the dog and butterfly are from Paper Pups. I used some brown "pearls" for the dog's eye and to add a little detail to the butterfly. And, since I think no card is complete without ribbon, I added a little bow. This was a fun card to make and Lisa was tickled pink!

Another October Birthday

I made this little card for my friend Lori ... it actually kind of looks like her. The image is a digital from InStyle Stamps, colored with Copics. I used my Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch to make the "icing" and then covered it with a thin layer of Crystal Affects to add a little shine.
The card base, the striped layer and the oval frame were all cut on my Cricut using Gypsy Wanderings ... this is my first Gypsy card. I finished with a handwritten sentiment and a little ribbon. Hope you like it.

A Card for My Sister and Copic Creations Challenge #13

About the time I was learning to use my Copic markers, DeeDee sent me this sweet little Tilda image. I colored her and set her aside ... not sure how I wanted to use her. Then I came across this wonderful pumpkin stamp from Whiff of Joy and knew it would make a great little 'seat' for Tilda. I whipped up this little card for my sister's birthday, and, as luck would have it, the current challenge at Copic Creations is pumpkins. Perfect!!
