Thank You


Another thank you for a friend who took care of my cat and watered my plants 
while I was away for back surgery.
I was inspired by Day 2 of My Favorite Things Summer School, with a focus
on primary colors. I had just made some "dragged paint" backgrounds using
red, yellow, and blue, so I used the leftover pieces for my flowers on this card.

Flower dies - My Favorite Things
Acrylics - Delta and Plaid
Ink - Ranger Distress Oxide
Thank You die - Sizzix

Just Be You


My granddaughter in all her glory!
I was inspired to do this layout by the Pinkfresh Studio May Challenge.
I used most of the colors and lots of puffy stickers!

Just about everything is from these Pinkfresh collections:
Dream On, Let Your Heart Decide, and Felicity.
I've colored the circles on the left with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks.

Cousins


These are my grandson's brothers and cousins on his mother's side. (He's the young guy on the left.)

I was inspired by a layout I saw in Scrapbook and Cards Today
and entered it in the Scraplift Challenge at the SCT blog.

All materials except the washi tape are from Pinkfresh Studio.
