Hey out there! I have a few things to share with you today...

First, I got another card from my Secret Pal! She is a much better SP than I am because I forgot that post takes time and didn't make a card for my SP for Thanksgiving! My SP sent me a very cute Thanksgiving card. Thank you!!

Next, is a card I made today for my BF's mom. A few weeks ago we all went on a trip together. She saw me coloring and asked if I like those "big-eyed things." (I was coloring a page of Some Odd Girl digis.) I took that as a hint to not use any cartoon-y images on her card.  :)  The stamp on the card is from The Paper Studio's Botanicals & Birds set. I was amazed to see that it's the same butterfly on one of the pages in DCWV's Garden Party stack. For some reason I keep forgetting that I got a gang of Colorbox inks from eBay; I used it for the butterfly, CTMH mini hearts, and ticket edges. A ticket from Tim Holtz, ribbon from Michael's, and a Rose Quartz Love Letter flower from Prima round out the supplies used for this one... I think this is the first card I've made without coloring. And I found challenges! Top Tip Tuesday - Layer Upon Layer and A Spoon Full of Sugar - Anything Goes

The last card I made last week but wasn't sure if I was going to send it to my Secret Pal. I think I can manage to make a few of these since it's only a 3x3 card. The stamp is from the dollar section at Michael's. (I'll put the company's name later; I forgot to bring my notepad downstairs with me...) The angel is colored with Copics and a Sakura Star Dust pen. I used the pen to go over the stripes on the argyle paper too. (Paper from DCWV.) And challenges for this one too - Incy Wincy Designs - #69 Blue & White and Pollycraft Monday Challenge - #71 Blue.

Thanks for reading through all that! Don't forget the Elegant Challenge at Guylou's and the blog hop this weekend!
