Tart and Tangy Emma

Hello friends hope you are having a "cherry" good day!LOL!! Keeping true to my promise to myself I pulled out some retired SU dp to use this weekend. I loved Jens sfytt from Sat so I sat down and colored up this Cherry Emma. I think this dp is called Summer Picnic but I know its dp that goes with the SU set Tart and tangy. Anywho I forgot how much I liked this dp and Jens fun sketch was great for using different designs. I pulled out some lovely crocheted flowers Anne was so nice to send me. Ive been hoarding these beauties but finally decided to use the red one! Thanks so much Anne! I may just have to send her this card as a thank you! Okay thats it for me today short and sweet. Im looking forward to a relaxing weekend since I know the last week of school is going to be killer!LOL!! Have a good one!

Sugar Rush Tomboy

I adore this TGF image! Shes so cute with her little tongue stuck out!LOL! I thought she would be cute paired with the fun designs in the BG sugar rush dp. Of course I had to color her clothes mismatched since she probably doesnt care if she matches or not!LOL!! Kinda like my girls! This totally looks like something my 7 year old would get up on and put on to wear to school!LOL! I think the sketch I used was last weeks Sweet Sunday sketch. I wanted to keep this card pretty simple and this sketch was perfect for a simple layout. I even jotted down my copic colors I used on this one. I think I'll slip this card in my little girls bookbag the last day of school. Have a great one!

Copics: yg13, yg25, g21, g40, c3, c5, c7, b60, b63, b66, y32, y35, y38, r24, r27, r29, rv10, rv11, rv32, e21, e25, e29, e27, e00, r000, r20, r22

ESS Daisies

If you visit my blog often you know I tend to do more cutesy cards. Im not too big on flowers except daisies! I love this set from Flourishes Gerbera Daisy. I also finally got my hands on some BG Origins dp with I think goes perfect for daisies. Of course the daisy image is colored with copics and sponged with antique linen. I also added some chocolate pearls to the image. I used Tracy's ESS sketch for my layout which I think was also perfect for this image. I just love when my cards fall together so easily!LOL! Im really happy with how this turned out! I even pulled out some SU garden green cs! I cant tell you how long its been since I used that color!LOL!! I also paired the dp with SU chocolate chip and crushed curry. I even finished the inside of this card mainly because I knew the occassion I wanted to use it for. Im bad about not stamping a sentiment on card so I can have it if I need a last minute card.
I hope all you Mothers had a great day yesterday!! I spent the day with my Mom, sis, and 3 kiddos. I have made the mistake of teaching my kids how to play Skip-Bo and now thats all they want to do!LOL!! Have a great one!
