Woo Hoo! It is May 1st and I have all kinds of cool things to tell you! First off the Copic Creations blog has a new challenge for you! We are using flowers, purples and lilacs to tempt you!! My card is a House mouse image that I picked up a long time ago and some clear flower stamps I found in a local craft store! I love purple so I loved coloring these flowers. Copics used on these flashy flowers were: V04,V06,VO9,V12,BVO8 and BV13. I also used an olive and a pale yellow for the middles with a little black for spots. Make sure to check out the blog to see everyones cool creations! Oh, and the cool lace on my card was a RAK from Angel, fellow dt member at ODBD! Check out her blog for some amazing creations there! Thanks Angel!
Next up is ONE of the new release sets for May from Our Daily Bread designs! This set is called "GOD BLESS AMERICA". IF THIS ISNT A GOOD MESSAGE FOR OUR COUNTRY TODAY ..I DONT KNOW WHAT IS!

I only hope that with all the "change" we are headed for we dont continue to kick OUR LORD out of our country!! I grabbed this verse to make my first card with this "Memory box " dp pack that I bought at ODBD. I know I keep mentioning all the cool new stuff at ODBD, but the dp is really so cool and I am loading up on it, trying not to hoard it! If you havent seen it yet..check it out! The pack I used here is called "Fernbrae". Also..ODBD is giving you a really cool sketch challenge to start with! Why dont you play along? Just label your creation ODBDSCO3 plus ODBD when you upload to SCS. This sketch is awesome! TFL AND HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

Our Daily Bread is carrying some awesome new dp and this is BG Wisteria.

I really LOVE LOVE LOVE this and had to make a card! I pulled out this old set and threw together the papers! They just go together sooooo nicely and I colored with Copics. The side is stitched with the vine stitch on my sewing machine with a few rhinestones popped on! Thanks for looking and have a GREAT week! :)

"Children of God" and "1 Corinthians13 "

Two cards made with 2 new releases at Our Daily Bread designs! I used the Memory box paper pad called Brandywine for each. I sure dont mean to enable here..however if you have not been over to the ODBD store for need to "click on over"!! Kelley has got some of the coolest new stuff there! The "Children" card is colored again with copics and the background paper I sewed using a vine stitch with no thread in my machine. Wish you could see it better! The flower is also from ODBD store and I just sponged it with SU burgandy. The Corinthians card was made to be simple so I cut the bottom of the verse out and popped it up on a cb piece of dp. I also cut a few of the flowers and put a pearl on them for dimension. tfl!
