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 cards! I love the bright colors on the last 2! The lay out on the first one is great too.

Sorry to hear about your son. Hope he's feeling better!
Great work in the meantime though! Love the first card :)
