Swingin By with some awards!


Happy Wednesday : ) ! I have a couple of cards and some blog awards to share with you today . The cards were both made with the new OCL set, Swingin' By. This set includes a variety of SUPER fun images and sentiments. You seriously have to see the entire set.... check it out right HERE.
Over the past 2 weeks, I've received a few blog awards...


KellyJean, Dancing with Stamps, sent me this "Exalting Christ" blog award! I'd like to nominate Angel and Lori, Jami & Taylor for this award. These girls inspire me with their amazing creativity, but more importantly, in their relationship with Christ. Thanks girls, for all the inspiration you provide :) !!!
And...Beth, Big Sky Paper and Design, gave me this "Makes my heart smile" blog award! And Deb at Bee Bug Creations did too :) !! I'd like to nominate Kyla, Lorri, Silke, Debbie (this week's SCS feature stamper plus she designed the stamp set that I used today...she's pretty much a super star!), Judy & Lorelie (btw... she has some awesome blog candy up for grabs!) for this award. These girls all have fun and amazing blogs that I KNOW you'll love to visit!!! And a HUGE thanks to KellyJean, Beth & Deb for these awards...you girls have been a real blessing to me...these past 2 weeks have been extra busy weeks and these awards encouraged my heart in a special way.
Back to some cards :) ... You gotta love this clever sentiment, "You'll Owl-ways be my friend". This card was also made with the Swingin By set...I had colored the owl and planned on using him on the first card, but he didn't fit, so I punched him and a sentiment out and whaa-laaa....another card!




















I used these Copic colors for my cards today:
BG72, BG78, YG03, YG95, YG11, YG13, E25, E27, E31, E34, BG000 and, of course, a blender pen.These fun DPs are by My Mind's Eye...Eclectic Paperie has a great selection of MMI DPs as well as Copics - you can find 'em all right HERE.
Whew, that was a long post! There are links to a ton of fun blogs and shops & I'm sure hope you'll have a fun time visiting each and every one :) !!! Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day !
