While I was at it, I made these next two using many of the same supplies 
to welcome baby girls at church.  
I used the same sketch design.

Oh Happy Day!

Sharing a card I made for a couple challenges.

Features stamps by Purple Onion. They are having a B-day challenge.

The balloons were colored with Copics or Spectrum markers, brushed with my Wink of Stella glitter pen and then covered with Glossy Accents.
 The glittery grass is glitter paper by DCWV.

The frog was stamped, colored with Copics, cut out and raised with foam.

I am also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Glitter It!

Baby cards and card drive update

HI there. 
 I have been very busy with my son's 7th birthday party.
I made a bunch of stuff for it and will share soon. 
It was a Skylander theme. 

Today I am sharing some baby cards I made for church.
I have been making cards to welcome new babies for several years.
I LOVE this Lawn Fawn airplane set for boy cards.
The papers are random extras from my stash.

I put a bit of Glossy Accents on the windows and brushed a bit
of glitter from my Wink of Stella pen on the outside of the clouds.
I made the banners by hand.


Stamps: Lawn Fawn and Paper Smooches
pens: Copics
Ink: memento

Fusion#5: You're Such a Deer

Played along with the current FUSION challenge #5.
I followed the sketch very closely and pulled the colors from my 
Simple Stories "Vintage Bliss" pad.
The deer stamp and sentiment is from The Craft's Meow.
I have been hoarding that ribbon and decided it was time to play! 
The deer was colored with Copics.


Thanks for looking.
