Lions and Angels

Quick post to show you 3 cards I've been working on. I just realized how silly that sounds...this isn't work, this is fun ; ) ! BTW, I was planning on sharing a gift bag tutorial today, but ran into some technical difficulty and will need to re-take a few photos, but I promise, I will share it as soon as possible. My first card was made with Our Daily Bread Design's newly released stamp set, Peace. I really like the contrast of the Copper Prism Metallic cardstock with the Lion image. You can see a little of the rich shimmer in the photo!! I got to do a little coloring with my Copics and used a Sakura White Glaze pen to make the lamb white and give him (her?) a little texture. Here are the Copics I used ~ Here's a fun, funky little card using ODBD's new Angel set. I had my Cuttlebug & Nestabilities out for these cards. Circles & Scalloped Circles everywhere you look, lol! I used some brand spankin' new SU Hawaii Papaya DP...You gotta love this color combo ~ Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango & Kiwi Kiss!! Speaking of love, what about that Kiwi Kiss/Vanilla Satin ribbon? And last but not least, here's the card I did for this week's SCS sketch challenge (SC190). Since this is a Christmas card I added some silver accents with Prism Metallic Silver cardstock and "Silver Bells"Dew Drops. I broke into my new pack of SU Holiday Treasure DP and some of the gorgeous new Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon. I just popped over to ODBD to grab a few links for this post and noticed Kelley is not only carrying the Scor-Pal (have it, love it!)...but she also has the new Scor-mat that fits neatly inside the Scor-Pal. So, one minute I'm minding my own business, getting a few links, and the next thing you know, I have a Scor-Mat in my shopping cart : ) ! My friend Cami was just telling me how much she loves her Scor-mat, and now, I'll have one of my very own!! Cami, you are SUCH an enabler, and I love ya for it {{hugs}}!
