*****And now on to the show!*****
For my first card, I used Poppy the Groundhog:
The layout is from the February Sketch For You To Try and the papers are from the My Mind's Eye Six by Six - Happier paper pad. I colored Poppy with Copics, then fussy cut him out leaving a thin white border. The sentiment is included with him and the diecut behind is from My Favorite Things.
For my second card, I used the Large Postcard Stamp and Die set:
The kitty and sentiment are from the Basket Animals set, the papers are from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist - Life of the Party paper pad and the baker's twine is from Timeless Twine.
I colored the kitty a bit with Copics, then fussy cut her out leaving a thin white border. I also cut the sentiment out into a little flag shape. I tied faux French knots in each corner of the postcard and popped up the sentiment flag with a foam booster.
I hope you liked my projects and thanks for hopping along with us! Your next stop is the incredibly talented Veronica.
