Sunflower playdate

Good morning! This weekend I was playing with sunflowers and snowmen and I had a great time. I think I really needed sometime to color and just pray for some friends while I created. Do you ever have times when you just come away and think wow, I feel great? Could just be me who knows... Well here is one of the first sunflowers I colored trying to get back into the swing if things. This is from In Praise Of Sunflowers stamp set. Marcy has a variety of sunflower digi's  in case you don't have the actual stamp set. 

I took the large sunflower in the set and stamped it about 2 inches apart all across the bottom (length side) of a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper and cut them partially and kept full image. This will make sense later when I show the others. Colored with various Copic markers and layered onto the base. One of the new to me embossing folders for the colored layer. My sentiment punched on a circle and some sparkle and enamel dots to finish it off. Voila! 
See you back here tomorrow as I have the new Dirty Dozen Challenge with the snowman I mentioned I played with.  :-)  Have a great day!

Mini release at Power Poppy

Morning! How about a little mini release to get your weekend started? Marcy has been drawing and these Freshly Squeezed Scents new digi's are sure to get your scent and coloring juices flowing. Welcome Aloe and Oranges today. 

I bet the first you thought was why is there lemons on this card. Well... I started coloring with my Prisma colored pencils and forgot that it was oranges and went with lemons. What can I say this set is versatile? HA! HA!  It really could be as Aloe, as my grandma used to call it "sav" goes with lemon tea when you aren't feeling well. Anyways... 

Simple design as I played with the image on kraft cardstock again and added a few layers of papers. Some textures to the base layer and some strips of kraft paper. Added some brads that have been in the jar for ages. Stickles on the aloe plant and my sentiment at the top. Voila!

 Pretty simple with the image colored with various Copic markers. The designer paper is from a new pack I have from ODBD. Embossed the base layer for some texture. Added some faux stitching down the left edge, the fish edge and sentiment top. A few enamel dots for accent and sparkle on the water. Voila!

A few scattered jewels and some sheet ribbon that I have had forever. Some sparkle and voila! Thanks for stopping by today.
