World Card Making Day.

I made three cards today! Two were the same designs, though. I finally got around to making my Just Magnolia card. I've been dying to play, because I got in some new Magnolias that I haven't had time to ink yet! They had a fun challenge with making your own flowers. They have a tutorial up, so if you need help with that, they got it! I had remembered seeing a tutorial using the scallop punch from Stamp Happy with Sgt. Stamper a few months back and decided to try it. Mine is not nearly as pretty as hers, but it looks good enough to be a flower, so I'm happy! I also did the sketch off Friday Sketchers. I really enjoyed this layout! I think I still had some challenges in my mind from yesterday, because the colors are so alike! On top of that, two holiday cards in a row! Today's paper line was the new Basic Grey line Eskimo Kisses. Such fun paper!Than I needed two sympathy cards. I've been putting them off for awhile, because those are just no fun to make. I grabbed my With Sympathy set from PTI. I kept these simple, and clean. I do like how they turned out, but I wish I would have used blue with the sponging instead of the creamy caramel. The sentiment is from SU. PTI's set is a lovely set for this occasion. The sentiments are so nice.

Supplies: copics, nesties, glimmer mist, Martha punch, SU rose red, creamy caramel, close to cocoa, cranberry crisp, SU cranberry crisp, regal rose cardstocks, PTI white cardstock, stickles,

Well, your first card is just adorable! Love your little lady and her DP is just perfect. Your second card set is elegant and a perfect CAS card. Sympathy and masculine are the two hardest categories in my humble opinion, and you aced these!
