Back in the Saddle

Hi Everyone!

Wow it's been a while since I've posted. It's been a busy week with my mom in town visiting, and my son has had pneumonia while being on Spring Break! I did have a chance to do some crafting so I thought I'd share those with you. I think a couple of them meet some challenges from this past week; but I'm not entirely sure which ones, so I'll leave it to you to recognize them!
The first one is Kraft, Chocolate Chip and Sage Shadow. The stamp set I used is Zinnia by Little Yellow Bicycle which I stamped with SU Basic Brown ink.

The second card is a bit brighter and more cheerful. I used Real Red, Green Galore and some pattern paper that I had in a pack I picked up from the dollar store a long time ago. I used my "Cheers to You" set which I colored with markers and then covered with a layer of Crystal effects. Each white circle is mounted on a small scallop circle nestabilities.

The last card features a Paper Pretty Stamp that I haven't used in a while. I used Celery, Apricot, Cameo Coral and Tempting Turquoise. I used my heart CB embossing folder because I thought it would look nice with the heart in her shirt. I colored her in withe Copics, and SU markers.
Speaking of Copics, I just got a new set in the mail yesterday. I can't wait to start experimenting with them and I plan to order some more too!
So, that's all for me today. Just a few things to get going again. See you tomorrow!

Great work in the meantime though! Love the first card :)
