Hey Cupcake was a image I received from a friend and I colored it in Copic's then mounted it on the marble technique paper and the Polka dot embossed folder paper with rick rack and waa laa.
My third card is again an image I received in the mail colored it in Copic's and then used TAC DSP on baroque burgundy SU cs. I cut out the caterpillar and mounted it on cut grass but you really can't see it since my photo is so bad. I used large eyelets to set off the other side of the paper.
I'm going to make a suggestion and I hope all of you will follow it: when you send images make sure you write on it in pencil the stamp maker and who is sending it. If you don't know the stamp maker at lease sign it so we can give credit where credit is due. I love all my girls on Stampin Trades & Treasured Friendships so I must say they give me so much inspiration. Thank you all for lookin at my blog.
God Bless and have a wonderful weekend.

My first card was my Piggy card I used pink SU texture cardstock, K& company paper, corkboard paper and piggy is on white SU paper. I colored the piggy with Copics E93, R30 and E31.
The second card is just as plain as my first card but I had fun with the image but it doesn't show well in the photo. I dry embossed the cardstock but then the image covered it up so you can't see it. I sponged the edge of the image then rounded the corners along with using the MS border punch. Of coarse I used Copic's on the girls one has gray hair, one has blond hair and the middle one has bluish hair so cute. I used a whole bunch: Yoo, Y18, C1, W1, E50, E51, E0000, R20, R000, V04, BG49, B000, B00 & Spica's. Well its been a long day and I'm bummed cause I couldn't play more so I'm headed to bed.
Good night and God Bless

My second card is all SU paper and cardstock and again for the Artful Sentiments challenge of Y67 - B23- E47. I used YG67, YG00, B21, B000, E40, E49 R24, R81 and C1, C3 & C5 I wish I new the stamp but it was an image given to me in an image swap. Wish people would write the names of the stamps on the back of the images when they mail them, I know Deedee is good at that thank you girlfriend. Anyway I used SU cardstock some generic DSP, rick rack , a clip from SU and the cutest brad from Eyelet Outlet that says "Don't Pick the flowers".

This is a image I got from Becky I think its a 'All that Scraps'. I used fake stitches, green sparkles and some of my mini brads (those buggers are hard to work with) but so adorable. I used my Copics E31, E33, E37, E51 & YG95. I use E31 and E33 constantly and had to buy refills for my Copics because I drained those puppies to the bone. So now I know how to do the refills also. But then I'm a certified Copic's instructor so I should know how to do it. Maybe one of these days I will import my Copic certification badge to the blog.
I've been a slacker lately the weather has been beautiful so I did a bunch of yard work transplanted my rose bushes to the front yard planted some petunia's then I mowed the grass. I was kind of nervous about it but hey the young man I was paying to do it didn't show up for 3 days and so since my grass grows 2 inches a day I had to mow. Now for those of you that don't know I had a total fusion of my lower back in January so I have been doing as doctors ordered until now. After all the yard work I felt fine no back pain and happy to acknowledge the surgery a true success. Yesterday I want to Chattanooga to visit an old friend and play with cuttlebug folders.
Is everyone ready for the 4th of July???? I just found out that our town isn't going to have fireworks this year because of the economy. Guess I'll have to watch it on TV and remember all of our soldiers all over the world serving our country and putting their lives on the line. To each and everyone of you have a wonderful 4th of July weekend.
God Bless the U.S.A.
