Prickles is in Love and Sunny Day Rooster


I have several cards I made for Splitcoaststampers that I haven't uploaded so I think I'll do two or more at a time. Today, I want to show you Prickles. I think he is such a cutie. This was one of the items my sister gave me for Christmas.  I think he makes the cutest valentine.

I made this one layer card for a clean and simple challenge on Splitcoaststampers, CAS308.  I colored Prickles with Copics and did a shadow with the Copics. I just made my own grass with the Copic marker, also.

Recipe:
Stamps-Stamps by Judith/Prickles M-21, Stamps by Judith/AA-69 Bold Modern Heart, Stamps by Judith/Family Memories/SK-LG-209 (sentiment), Prickley Pear/Branch with Hearts (used partial stamp-heart he has in his hand)
Paper-PTI white cardstock
Ink-Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories-Copics, Glossy Accents

My next card was really simple and mostly designer paper. It was for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club Central Theme-January, 2015. I made a card for a chicken or farm theme, although mine is a rooster. It is also for someone feeling sick and hopefully will cheer them. It is already in the mail.



The only stamps used were for the sentiment and the sunflower.

Stamps-Make an Impression/Garden Fence Punch-In Stamp-used partial stamp (sunflower only), Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps/Bring on the Sun set (sentiment only)
Paper-PTI vintage cream cardstock, Graphic 45 French Country
Ink-Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories-Sassafras/In a Stitch Blossoms-Kraft, raffia, Copic E70, Gold Stickles 

I hope you're having a sunny day and looking forward to a great weekend.

Prickles looks precious and I love that your shadowed him and sat him in the grass. The sentiment is sweet with the script font. Your rooster is lovely as well and will certainly cheer up someone day. I hope you received that package of snow I sent to you the other day and you've been such a good girl I'm going to send you another one on Monday or Tuesday as soon as I can get out to the Post Office. LOL Enjoy your weekend.
