Happy Friday!


Two cards today!

Friends for Heifer! HA! I just love that sentiment. These stamps are from High Hopes, and this card is for Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog. The theme for the week is "It's a Mans World!" I don't think their is anything more manly than a boy and his cow! I colored this in with my Copic Markers I used two colors of Bazzill card stock and a scrap piece of Cosmo Cricket striped paper. (I know it is hard to see, I stacked over it). The branding iron stamp is one of my favorite background stamps from Cornish Heritage Farms. I also took a Maya Road Chipboard Buckle and inked it with the blue ink then sprayed it with my bronze Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist. I wish you could see how much it sparkles and looks like copper. Used my Sakura Glaze pens to doodle and stitch around the edges. I like how it turned out and think any "Guy" would love to get this card!

Then a Glittery "Welcome Home!". This card is for the Papertake Weekly challenge, with this weeks theme "All that Glitters". Check got lots of that! I started this one out with some bling Bazzill Card stock. The image is Magnolia City Houses I just love these, so fun to color in with my Copic Markers. I cut them out loosely and placed them on a light blue Bazzill Bling card stock. The green flower is something I have had in my stash forever I don't even know who made it. The heart is a Heidi Swap chipboard piece, I added some fine glitter to the top. The Key is from Maya Road, I colored it black then added fine detail Black Glitter to it. The letters were a last minute "OH yea!!" addition. I was going to stamp the letters and then remembered I had these red glitter Making Memories letters somewhere in my stuff. I dug and dug and found them. Man were they hard to use, they were really stuck to the packaging. But perfect for this card so they were worth the struggle! Again added some Sakura Glaze pen doodles and stitching. Really a sparkling card.
Hope you like both of these cards. And that you have some fun planned for the weekend. I have a Friday Night crop tonight, then a scrapbook layout class to teach tomorrow afternoon. Of course my life is on hold and all things postponed if Cheyenne looks like she maybe going into labor! She is my last Mini Donkey due this spring, and can't wait to see her baby! Of course I do hope she will let me get some fun cropping with my friends, but she is priority!
Have a Great Friday!
