One of two posts for today!!

Yep!! That's right - I finished not only that one card but another. These two have something in common. They are from the same stamp! I needed to post this so I could enter a drawing. But I have yet to even view my class. Have a million super important errands to run before I can even check out the class for today - that's the super part of doing it online. It's pretty much at your convenience, but if you want in on the prizes (this one gives prizes!), you have to stick pretty close to the dates - notice I didn't say time. So here is my take on two. The pinky one is colored in with copics (of course) and stickles (of course, again!). That greeting is from a brand new to me Hero arts stamp/die set and is heat embossed. I also punched an edge in a herringbone paper to give it some interest. The other card uses the diy stamp pad I made for the first card (yesterday) and is called offset stamping - cool, huh? I think the tiny bird adds a bit to the card and that sentiment comes from a new inchie type stamp set. I had to have it!Don't forget to look in this evening (I am on Eastern time).

These went together much quicker than the first one. Guess I was trying to do too much? Hugs to you all, Barb F

These are fabulous! Love how you colored in the first one, and the off-set stamping on the second one gives the background image a whole new look that is sooo cool! :)
