Unidentified Image Swap April 2018

It’s time for the next round of my Unidentified Image Swap over at SCS. Vickie was our hostess this time and she picked a Stampin’ Up image from a set called “Fairies”.

I love the way this image turned out! I decided to use up a few of my retiring Stampin Up colors on this one. I have so much paper and I need to get rid of some! I love the Rose Red and Wild Wasabi combination!

I’ll see you again in June with our next image.

Christmas CRAZY Swap

I feel so sorry for my poor Christmas Crazy partner this round! I”ve been so busy at work and I didn’t get my image out very promptly…I”m sorry Janet!

But, Janet sent me an adorable image and great set of papers. LOVE it!

I used the Sunday Stamps sketch for this one (#176).

I’ll be back in a few months with another Christmas Crazy card! See you then.

 

Dueling Darlings – April 2018

It’s the 15th again…okay, yesterday. But, I’m close!

It’s time for my Dueling Darlings post and Team Diva was sent by Barb this month. The chosen theme she and her partner in craft came up with is April Showers (love!!) and she sent a Whipper Snapper Design, Umbrella and Slicker for us to play with.

Here’s my card:

This is a 5×7 card. Bigger than I usually make, but I need to send some photos to someone and wanted a larger card!

Thanks for a great kit, Barb! I’ll see you next month.

My work of art is the background. I’ve been looking for a chance to play with my relatively new distress oxides, so I sponged up a colorful background!
