Challenge #9

Well finally I got some to time make a card this week.  I am still fighting a nasty cold and not happy about it! :)  Anyway I had some fun playing with Yellow over at the Copic Challenge Blog.  I also decided to use the sketch at Mojo Monday's for some inspiration!
Paper - left over bits
Stampin Up Embossing Folder
Yellow bling
Flower Y00,Y13,Y15, Y18,Y28,Y26, Y28,YR09, Gelly Roll White
Leaves YG11, YG13, YG17
Airbrush in Y38

I was happy with the flower once I added some airbrushing to match the background lacy circle.  I found the white was just to stark.

Well I managed to make a card today... not letting this cold ruin my entire week! :)

What I Learned
Apparently I do not have many pastel colours in my card stock pack!
Making a spring bunny with some white and some brown is interesting! :)
Working with pastels can be so much fun!

Today as my boys were back at school my daughter wanted to craft with me as well.  So she made a card for Dad on the left and for the Easter Bunny on the right.  It was her first time using Brads (I better hide my stash now!)  She is addicted to tape right now so there is no stopping her!  She played with my punches as well. I think she had fun, but she wouldn't wait until Easter to give Dad her card!

Silhouette Fun!

Well other than my silly cold I had fun showing off some silhouette techniques with vinyl at a local store last night!  I do love my electronic gadgets and when you throw in some crafting I am really happy!  Now hopefully feeling good enough to make some cards tomorrow!
