A weekend full of stampin'.....

Happy Sunday everyone!!!

I had a wonderful stampin' weekend.....

First I would like to share a card with you I made Friday is a *multi-task* card - LOL!!!

Here are the challenges I crammed onto this one....the original idea was for the fabulous CCEE ladies who were so sweet to feature my *sparklegirl* name as their Challenge - you can read about it right HERE. Next is the LSC243 - make a *girly girl* card (compliments the CCEEC), the layout is from the VSOCT09E Sketch (last one), and the square card idea is from the ssnotime110. This card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".

The super sweet *Dahlia* image is from The Greeting Farm.

I inked the image in Memento Black and colored it with Copic Markers. For my birthday my sweet hubby treated me to the Copic Airbrush Starter Kit and the square BG was sprayed with it!!! I definitely have to practice some more :)'s a very fun tool to play with!!!

The DP is from the Pawsitively Prints and I matched it with the Raspberry Fizz color. At last I added the Raspberry Fizz Ribbon, the Glitter and the fabulous Silver Pearls.

Oh...... before I forget my super duper awesome *BOWS* are easily done with the *Bow-Easy*....a must have tool!!!


Next are two card are a bit more serious....I made them both for the CAS37 - With Sympathy plus a few other Challenges.

For this card I used the CPS37 Sketch. The sentiment is from the ODBD Set Praying for You and I inked it in Chocolate Chip.

I used the beautiful *Blue Awning* DP from K&Company. The card base is a Textured Creamy Caramel CS. At last I added the halfback Pearls.


The layout for this card is from the VSOCT09B Sketch (second one). I used the ODBD Set With Deepest Sympathy. The sentiment was also inked in Chocolate Chip.

I used the same *Blue Awning* DP and my card base is Vintage Cream. I finished the card off with a matching Satin Ribbon and halfback Pearls.

Thank you for stopping by today!!!

Have a wonderful remaining weekend and I see you back shortly!!!
