I found this great free digi awhile ago. It's from Whimsie Doodles. There is also a similar girl styled for the 4th of July too. I hope you all get a chance to participate in this challenge. I am going to try and make another entry if Bryar will let me. :)

I am tired... and some new cards

Hello again!

Sorry I have been a bad blogger. I have been so tired from my not so great sleeping 5 month old (teeth ugh!) that I have not felt creative lately. So I have just been getting through each day the best I can.

Father's Day was coming up and I wanted to make a card for my hunny as it was his first official Father's Day. There was also a retirement a party upcoming, and since being on mat leave I am not financially able to contribute, I offered to make the card. So having a purpose to craft kinda got my mojo going. Here are the cards I made:

Father's Day
Stamps: Di's Digital Stamps "What a Catch"
Ink: N/A- Printed from my HP Printer
Papers: Recollections- Neapolitan
Cardstock: Bazzill (unsure of colour)
Colouring Medium: Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils
Embellishments: N/A

Retirement Card
Stamps: Technique Tuesday "Petite Posies", "Best Wishes" Created in Microsoft Word
Ink: Archvial Ink, HP Printer
Papers: Recollections- Neapolitan
Cardstock: Bazzill (unsure of colours)
Colouring Medium: Watercolour Pencils
Embellishments: N/A

So that is what I have been up to. I got a couple of new stamps from Some Odd Girl, which I am excited to colour. I showed them off and these cards in my latest YouTube video:

 Thanks for stopping by I hope to have more to share soon!
