Cards & Pictures
Hello ladies (& gents)! Happy Sunday to you! Hope you all are having a fabulous weekend so far!
My card today is for the TGF's Farm Fresh Friday challenge of Spring Cleaning. Use up something you forgot you had or something that you were going to throw away.
I had totally forgotten about those special brad combos (forgot the name). They are from Making Memories. Thought the hardware is perfect for a 'boy' card.
This card is for my good friend, R. R & I have been friends since our first year of college. We had been best friends, in fact I called him my "Kuya" which means big brother. We shared interests in Japanese Anime, college life, and beginning our Nursing careers. We lost touch around Senior year, but had gotten to be friends last summer. Now we talk and share advice on our children, family life, and our Nursing careers :).
Thought I'd try my hand on including pictures in my cards again. That was my trademark before I discovered stamping last year. Here are pics of my thank you cards for my friends during my bachelorette in Vegas two years ago:
Right in the middle is JoBoogie (fun times, BFF!). I may do more of these since I miss incorporating pics!
And last, but definitely not least... here's International Ink's Round 3 submission. Tanya did such a beautiful scrapbook lay-out of her daughters.
The two Miss Anyas are just perfectly proportioned and colored. The ruffled trim & stitching are fabulous for the girly-theme. There are so many small details that I appreciate as well ... like the sayings running down behind the paper and pics. And the little jewels on the bottom left. Please vote for our team by leaving a comment here. (Thank you SOO much for the views and votes last week as well. I really appreciate it!)
And lastly, check out Tanya's awesome video on coloring skin tone at Practical Scrappers. Faces are the most difficult for me to color but her video has shed some light! I just need to get more Copics... LOL!
