Card Patters - here we go!

Card Patterns Sketches are so great to follow - makes for an unusual and lovely card.  I had some creative moments here and loved putting green and pink together.  Hero Arts "Just a Note" and "Joy Ride" sentiment are perfect together.  It seems I'm always running.  I did do a second card, but after photographing and NOT liking it, I added a butterfly, so will get that up tomorrow or later today.   Have a great week!

A little fabric never hurt anyone

Not one, but two fabric butterflies grace this card for Lily Pad Cards challenge of using fabric or felt in a project.  And I'm getting ready for Christmas too.  I just wanted to keep this simple, no embossing folders, tags, etc.  I thought the butterflies were enough to pull everyone into the scene.

Lily Pad, Lily Pad...

Kathy's Lily Pad Palette - ooh, wonderful colors - see the colors first hand.  I had to try this new digital image from Digital Two for Tuesdays.  Here's where I got this sweet image and colored her with Copic markers.  Just getting some photos up on Flickr tonight too.  Have to hit and run!

Card Patterns Challenge # 127

I love the brickwork in this digital stamp, such a lovely scene too.  Check out Card Patterns for the sketch.  I am too late to enter - just had too much going on, but I do like this card    I'm not usually one for yellow, but I was just drawn to yellow for the image and took a Copic marker to color the Hero Arts white flowers.  The little girl just seems to emerge from the center.  I'm very pleased with her.

Kathy’s Color Palette

Give it a whirl at Lily Pad Cards - enter now.   I just really love this particular digital image.  You can do so much with it - the DVD is from Hero Arts Digital Design Kit, titled The Art of Style.  I'm not sure if it's still available, but I use so many of the images from this disk.  Unfortunately, I use the embossing folders far too little.  I think this particular one is so elegant.   Hope you like my entry.  Have a good rest of the week.

CCC - Lily Pond Cards - August

Getting ready for Lily Pond Cards Card Chain Challenge, (CCC).  Woohoo - the cards are beautiful and you know someone who receives your card will respect your artwork.  This is my entry for the August CCC.  Each and every month is a challenge and who are the winners?  Each and every one of us!... now how can you beat that?  The sun flowers are a beautiful Stamp set and I can't find the set number.  I swore it was a Hero Arts, but perhaps it isn't.  I hope you can see the sketch in this card.  See the CCC Sketch. I like the way this turned out.

There's a blog anniversary at Maureen's
