The Cottage

A Birthday Card for a friend - I chose this lovely cottage on a river scene.  The image is from Two for Tuesday; I printed it on some very soft pink and white DP from DCWV , a Wedding Print paper.  The flowered DP is from GCD studios.  The edge punch is from Martha Stewart, the flower from  Bazzill Basics, the ribbon and tiny rose are from my stash.  A nice change from using copics on all of my cards. ( But I really do love my copics!)
The scene looks so pleasant as we still have snow on the ground here!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:           Anything Goes          Ends  Feb 27 Anything Goes                   Feb 28                    Anything Goes                 March 31

Cupcake Party

A sweet Lili of the Valley digital image which I think is suitable for a female of any age!  Image Colored with copics.  The die cut is from Nellie's Multi Frame's.  The DP is from DCWV.  The sentiment is from Netty's Cards.  The pearls from Crafts.  The die cuts with the lace and ribbon are all from my stash.

Having another winter storm here, but not nearly as much snow as the last one.  Went curling the last two mornings, spared for two different teams -  lost one game, won the other - but always a good time!

Girl & Kitty

Outlawz Challenge for February 11th is to case a card from the DT  I chose a card of Sandra van Blaricum's to Case.  The card can be seen here -

I chose to do my card in a similar design, but used a different 3-D image by Christine Haworth Designs; a girl with a watering can and a cat instead of a dog.  I mounted the image on a die cut from Spellbinders.  Stamped a Happy Birthday Sentiment on the top of the card.  Instead of lace and shirred ribbon, I added a piece of cardstock with ribbon running through it.  Sandra had some beautiful stitching down the left side of her card, but I chose to add butterfly peel offs - Magenta Style on that side.  The DP is from My Minds Eye.
Think my choice of red may be a little overpowering, but I think the little girl I'm sending it to will enjoy it!

Started to make this post last night, but my company arrived for the weekend so I am just trying to complete the post - everyone else has gone to bed.
