Hello Card and Handmade flowers made for Copic Buzz's Challenge #2

I made handmade flowers for the flower challenge for the Copic Buzz Flower Challenge. It was so easy to do!
Cut out some flowers and color!

For the pink flower I colored the entire flower with R-81, then shaded in the middle with R-82. Last, I added a few feather strokes with R-85!
Whoola! A flower!

Colors used for handmade flowers:

I also made a card using a Sunflower stamp that I've had for years! The square in the card was cut out using my silhouette!
I colored all the images with my Copics. I didn't have any brads to match my card so I colored the top of the brad with my copics..Worked Great!
Here is my hello card:

Copic Colors I used for the Hello Card:

Pay it Forward

One of the members of the group I moderate (Copic Buzz) on Paper Craft Planet had this cool thing going. Her name is Stef and you can find her here! -
It is called "pay it forward". I have never seen this and thought how wonderful! So of course I signed up... now I'm passing it on!

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me, especially for you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make but I hope you will.

2- What I create will be just for you. I’ll be lurking around your blog to see what you might like

3- this will run until the end of July.

4- You have no clue what it's going to be and neither do I so it'll be a big surprise to both of us!

The catch? Oh yeah. There's a catch.... You must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog.

So the first five people who post, and are willing to pass it along, will get a handmade gift in the mail from me.

Once you receive the gift, please be sure to post a pic on your blog.

Now doesn't this sound like fun? I'm singing here...... make someone happy!

Please leave a comment with a link to your post!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Birthday Card for my daughter

Today I made a birthday card for my daughter. I also entered this card as my project for the Copic Buzz Challenge for the Copic Buzz Group.
The challenge was skin tones. I did pretty well, but if you look closely at the legs you can see I saturated the page a little to much when I was blending and it caused it to seep out of my stamped line. Oops!

Simple Thank You Card

I bought the Thank You stamp at Michael's in their $1.00 stamp bin. It's amazing what you can do with a $1.00 stamp!
