Thinking of you

Happy Saturday - I'm out of sync on blog posting this week, my Mon., Wed., Fri. went out the window!  I have a couple of cards for you that I made yesterday afternoon.  I checked in with Bug A Boo stamps blog to see Jodie's freebies and couldn't wait to acquire them so I could color them. 

I've also been getting ready to go to Phoenix for the Copic Certification class, I've been organizing and cataloging my Copic markers so if I have the opportunity to shop for any I won't  come home with duplicates.  Do you ever like something so much you buy it twice?  

I used Y38, Y35, Y32, C8, C3, C0,YG17, YG13 & YG11 to color this image because the yellows go beautifully with Papertrey Ink Summer Sunrise and Stampin' Up! Barely Banana card stock.  I also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder, Papertrey Ink ric rak die, sentiment from PTI Spring Take Three and some black half pearls.  The sketch is SC249 from Splitcoaststampers. 

My second card is also SC249 and the only Copic markers I changed were BG11, BG13 & BG18 for the flower.  I used the Papertrey Ink medium scalloped border for this one and I think it's too big for the card but it's attached so there is no going back.  I also used one of their embossing plates for the SU Taken With Teal panel.  I combined Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist and Stampin' Up! Taken With Teal card stock for this sample, I like the combination but in the future I'll use the ric rak die for the border! 

I'm not sure if I'll have a blog post for you Monday, I do plan to take my laptop with me.  It all depends on if I have time to make something fun to show you!
