YNS May 2013 Hop Prize

And now on to the show!  Here’s what I came up with:

My first card uses the adorable Phoebe with a partial sentiment from Awesome Journal Words:


Phoebe was colored with Inktense pencils and the layout used Blueprints 1.

My second card uses the cute Dynamic Duo with matching sentiment:


The duo was colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS and I added a couple of little Puffy Clouds on foam tape.  Hope you like them!

Karen is also offering up some awesome hop specials so make sure you take advantage of these great deals!
