It's already Wednesday!

Can you believe it is already Wednesday??? Wow this week is flying by! I did get two challenges done last night during the baseball game. Oh something you may not know about me - I am a huge Yankee Baseball Fan! Never been there, have seen them here in Texas. I look forward to the season starting all winter, Love my Yankees.. he he especially Derek Jeter!

Ok I know your here to see the cards - The first one is for Ismaki #16. Great sketch this week, it was the "suggestion" to use 4 different pattern papers! That one was tough. I still don't know if it worked or not, but I was stressing so much about it that just had to finish it and let go. My 4 pattern papers are all from the Basic Grey Pheobe line. I layered them onto a pink piece of Bazzil. Yes there are 4 the birds, the flowers, the stripes and Tilda is sitting on a piece of "linen" looking green. I colored her with my Copics in the same green and pink as the paper. She is glued down at her feet and the pop dotted at her head. Scrap piece of pink ribbon, Adorn It glitter flowers and the sentiments are Deja View Wonderful Word Stickers. I stickled her wings and highlighted with white gel pen. I just don't know, it may all just be too much. What do you think?

Next is this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge, I also needed a birthday card for a friend this week... hope she isn't peeking here an will see it early! I knew I wanted to use my new Whipper Snapper Designs Donkey stamp. Is he the cutest or what!! I just love him! I colored him with my Copics then cut him out. I used a piece of Heidi Grace Shimmering Flocked Birthday Paper, man was it hard to cut this I love it so much! But this is a special birthday card! I hope you can see the shimmer and the flocking.. to bad you can't feel it! Anyway I used this paper as the focal paper, on a piece of forest green Bazzil. Layered with white card stock and a piece of DCWV Nana's Kids Embossed Green and White dot. I cut my circle with my extra large Fiskars squeeze punch. Stamped Happy Birthday with one of those $1 stamps from Studio G. I had a scrap velour green ribbon that just went perfect with the flocked paper... oh I wish you could feel this paper... sad when rubbing paper makes me happy huh! I stitched everything down with my Sakura Glaze Pens. I love this one. Is it the paper? Is it the donkey? Just love it! Hope you like it too!
Well off to go out and check on Rosie again. She was doing better this morning. Up and outside and actually came to me in the pen! Not bouncing around like normal yet, but improving and that makes me happy.
Have a great Wednesday!
