Two cards...

Well, I ended up changing my mind on one of my workshop cards (the Joy Forever one) kind of last minute (but before I cut the papers, thankfully) and created this one to make instead. I like this one much better and it's more likely to be used, since we all know someone who has a birthday... LOL.

What I used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Magic Moments B&T
Hollyhock, Cocoa and Colonial White C/S
Hollyhock and Cocoa inks
Building Block Alpha
Oct. SOTM Annotations
Just Blooms White Daisy Variety Pack
Garden Green brad
Hollyhock twill ribbon
Photo corner punch (SU)

This one is made from a Bella image that was sent to me sent by a fellow CTMH sistah. I don't have this stamp (yet), but pulled it out to use it on my Monday Crafting Day at my BFFs. When I was away at my Workshop in Grande Prairie, I went to Michaels and broke down and purchased a set of 72 Prisma Premier coloring pencils that I've been oogling for-like-ever! I had a 50% off coupon, otherwise I never would have paid the regular price of $120 for a set of pencil crayons! I still think I'm kinda crazy for buying them for $60... Anywhoo, I finally was able to try the Gamsol technique on this card. It will take some getting used to, I'm sure, but I am fairly happy with the way the coloring turned out. I need some more practice.

What I used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Notebook B&T
Bamboo, Hollyhock, Black, Desert Sand and White Daisy C/S
Black ink
Prisma Premier Coloring Pencils (Michaels)
Odorless Mineral Spirits (Michaels)
Blending Nibs (Michaels)
Treading Water Fiskars edge punch (LSS)
Prima flower (LSS)
Colonial White Bigger Brad
Pop-dots (other)
Uniball Signo White Gel Pen (SU)

I actually made this card to give to a friend of mine whom I had been going to Yoga with before school let out for summer break. We have intentions of going again now that school is back in, but she's pretty busy right now and it's okay with me. I ended up over-extending my arm trying a move and I think I popped my shoulder out last May. It's still bugging me daily... leave it to me to get injured doing YOGA! LOL :D
