On a happy note, Sunday is always chore day here and the one day that Hubby is home, so it's our day to catch up on major cleaning, laundry and all those fun chores. Luckily, I've been keeping up lately and I had also totally cleaned my craft room this week, so thing went really easy. I'm also lucky because Hubby did all the laundry while I slept in! Yippee!
My first card was actually one I finished last night, but had not had a change to post and this cutie was a card I created for the Color Combo challenge over a The Outlawz. The colors for our Challenge this week are - Charcoal, White and Lime and I colored this sweet little StampFairy - Lenny Flowers to match that theme.
This cutie is being submitted to these new challenges - all are welcome to play along -

My second card was created for another challenge over at The Outlawz and it's today's brand new 'Clean and Simple' Challenge, which you can find HERE! This week the Girlz put together a fabulous sketch and I have copied it over to my blog to share it with you and hopefully inspire you to join in on the fun.
And this is the card I created, based on the sketch!
Paper Lace cartridge, which has some really pretty designs. I took three of the design I had cut and put them together on this card for the "circle" area. I embossed the first layer and inked the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. The second layer is a simple circle and the top layer is one of the lace layers.
My next card was created today for the new Sketch Challenge over at the Stars & Stamps Blog which you can find here. I also copied over this week's Sketch and hope you'll join me in this fun Challenge for Operation Write Home.
Sketch # 58

I always enjoy the Sunday Sketch and I print them all out and save them for the future. At first I thought this one looked hard, but once I started it went along very well. I used up some turquoise scraps from the card I had made above and that worked out perfectly to go with my brand new Bo Bunny 'Ad Lib' pack, that came in yesterday from Susana's with my new Copics. Oh, and I am in LOVE with the new colors and did some coloring with them last night. The two new V colors, (V20 and V25) and the three new RV colors, (RV55, RV63 and RV66) are already new favorites. I hope to have a card to share later that shows those colors!!
I am off now to work on that card and hope to have it done later! In the meantime, if you have been thinking of adding the new Copics to your collection, I highly recommend them and think if you like violets and pinks -- you'll be very happy with this set!!
