Friendship

Happy Sunday! I hope it's as bright and cheery where you are as it is here. The sun is hot though and I am opting for the air conditioning for the moment. Our weekend didn't quite go as planned. I had not planned to be home this early. We had an inch of rain Thursday evening into Friday morning so we had to cancel the gravel we were supposed to get for the driveway. So sadly, our driveway is still not finished but we'll try again next Friday and with fingers crossed the rain won't come again on Thursday evening. Tom was afraid the heavy trucks would rut the new driveway with that much rain. So instead of working on the driveway, we cut down a tree that had broken off and was hanging. I did take some pictures of that huge tree. I will post those a little later.
I have two cards this afternoon. I had  a blast making them mostly while it rained. What better way to pass the time.

The image in this card is from Floppy Latte Designs. I colored the image with Copic markers and used Spellbinders large circles to cut out the image. I backed the image with Spellbinders Scalloped Circles and then added pearls along the edge. The green background is embossed with the Victoria embossing folder. Then I added two ribbons and one piece of cardstock stamped with a sentiment. I added three pearls on the edge of the cardstock.
I am entering these challenges:
And my second card:


So this card was really fun! At Clearly iStamp, the challenge was to lift the person before you. So the person before me was Debi at That Might Look Good on a Card. And this is the card I decided case from Debi.

I didn't quite have the border embossing folder so I used a full embossing folder. The image and sentiment are from Clearly Digi Stamps called Sweet Stuff. I used the pre-colored image from the set but there are outlined images also. I just love the sentiment. The embossing folder is called Spots and Dots. I used a crap of ribbon to give the card a bit of embellishment and the image is popped up to accommodate the ribbon. I also inked the edges with So Saffron. I was trying to keep the yellow theme that Debi had but wanted to give it a bit more definition. Besdies entering the Clearly iStampchallenge I am also entering:
Well, that's it for today maybe. I am hoping to get some more play time in today. Thanks for stopping by and spending some time with me. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Two great cards with wonderful copic coloring. What a cool idea to "lift" the person before you. I've always love the colors of gumballs in a machine. I have two machines but I put M&M's inside since I don't chew gum...haha
