Girl Talk

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! :) I'm so glad the weekend is almost here. I have a massive amount of work to get done today but if I can get through that, I'll be able to get some R&R this weekend :) I had a lovely day off yesterday and got to spend some time in the craft room. I have two cards to share with you today.

For my first card I decided to use this adorable stamp illustrated by Elisabeth Bell and available HERE at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. I had so much fun coloring this one. I colored her with copics and then lightly inked around the image with purple ink using my Tim Holtz blending tool. Next I created my card base using SU cardstock. My DP is from DCWV. For some finishing touches, I added ribbon, a bow (which I tied with my Bow Easy), Primas, roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, pearls, and a cell phone mini charm that I got at JoAnn's. The fun sentiment is from an MFT set. What do you think?

For my second card today, I decided to use my paper scraps from my first card to create a new Cricut Card using the Forever Young Cricut cartridge. I cut the image out at 4". Next I created my card base with SU cardstock. I added a black ribbon and some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. Just a super simple but fun card. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you all have a wonderful day. Thanks so much as always for stopping by.
