Geez, I Suck!

Well, I guess I only suck a little since I did have to hide pack all of my crafty stuff so that I could clean up for company. We celebrated my grandmother's 92 birthday last weekend, and with her two of her three children, four of her grandchildren, six great-grands, and six great-greats all in this house, leaving my stuff out was so not an option! :D

Now that it's quiet again, I stayed up late with my cousin making cards. Here's mine for the Sketch Challenge at The Outlawz this week:

You know I HAD to get Charlotte Chic from The Greeting Farm! Her hair looks like mine!
I feel like it's been a minute since I reminded you of the awesome prizes we have at The Outlawz. The Sketch Challenge is sponsored by SheryK Designs this month, and we have site-wide prizes from Oozak, Paper Temptress, Jellypark, Rick St. Dennis, Squigglefly, and Touched by a Butterfly! Here's the sketch if you're interested in joining us:

AND... Here's my lovely cousin's card!
She was going for a 4th of July look, and I think she nailed it!

Happy Father's Day!

Hope you're all out there having a great Father's Day whether you're a dad or not! Here's the card I made for my daddy:

Love You Daddy digi from Mo's Digital Pencil Too. Colored with Copics.
He came over for late lunch and movies, and because we're silly we decided to re-create the scene from the card! :D

I guess I should have cropped this at his waist so it would really match, but then you wouldn't get to see that big smile on his face!

**Thanks for the gift certificate, Colleen!!! I thought I'd bought this digi for Father's Day last year, but thanks to you, I have it now!  :D  HUGS to you, sister!

Graduation Time!

Some of the ladies on Scrap of Color decided we needed a challenge on Monday. We were busy chatting when we all wanted to and should have been crafting. So, Tina and Karen decided that our challenge would be to make a graduation card with embossing and an image. Well, I'd already printed out some graduation digis to prepare for the graduates I know, so this challenge got me going! I used Sassy Graduate from Sassy Studio Designs; the digi is currently free for a progressive challenge in the SSD group on PCP.

Here is my first card:

And here's the second one that I actually embossed (and didn't make until Tuesday after the "challenge" was over):

And a close up since easel cards are a beast to try to photograph...

Doodlebug Cap & Gown paper, Stampabilities sentiment, Congrats stamp from Hampton Art

Anyway, I colored these two girls (and another) with my Copics at the same time. In case you want to know, they were colored about the same way with E13/15/17 but the one on the top has a base coat of YG41 while the second was colored first with YR21.
