Post #101!

I can’t believe I'm starting on my next hundred posts! Don’t know why I was afraid of blogging for so many years. It's fun and not nearly as techy as I'd thought (Thanks, Blogger!)  Now, on to the cards for posting #101. 

Wanted to make another card using this sweet image that I recently won from Di’s Digital Designs. For this card I colored Izzy with my new alcohol markers and chalks (for her face) plus added polar flower soft to frame her beautiful little face and add some depth and texture.

My next creation was inspired by Pinterest (http://www.stampingyearround.com/2012/03/pyramid-card-basic-construction.html)  Cut the base from white swirl vellum then added assorted glittery snowflakes (although you can't see that bling in this photo, but I think they will sparkle a bit when the tea light flickers inside.) Developed the sentiment on my computer printed it off on vellum- with blue ink- cut it into a circle and mounted onto snowflake scrapbook paper. (You can see the snowflakes if you click the photo to enlarge it). Will be sending it to my sweet MIL when winter arrives. (That gives me time to buy a battery operated tea light for her to tuck inside.)

For this week’s Simon Says Wednesday Challenge I used a  6x6 book of Disney paper and pocket cards. Paired the background paper, “Wish upon a star” sentiment card, a silhouette that I fussy cut (a bit of work, but I do like the result) with a bow and little silver charm. Ahhh… magic!

Have loved the Summer challenges during these past few weeks. This time I used an old Hero Arts stamp (still mounted on wood so I know the company name!). I stamped and colored a few of the images. So tried them out on different colored backgrounds. I think I like the black one best because the contrast with the bright red strawberries makes them pop!
