Now onto the cards......

This first one is one I made to add to the collection I have going for Cards for Kids. My daughter and I have made quite a few and they will FINALLY be going in the mail this week.....
sending you happy everything full

I used the Be Happy Set by Hero Arts and that yummy Urban Prairie line by Basic Grey...just can't go wrong with these 2 companies! :)

Next up comes one I have been saving to post. I got the idea from Nichol Magourik. She made these darling coloring books and I wanted to badly to make some...you can see hers HERE.

Here is my version of it... (I apologize for the BAD pictures...my camera is on it's last (flash) legs...)
puffer full
and this one...
dolphin
I made 2 of each kind. The inside looks like this: I forgot to add that I used my Silhouette sketch pens on these.
coloring pages
couple of closer shots
puffer close
021
I used metallic water color paints on the waves. you can find them here
