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.

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.

Sing it Loud and Clear

I've finally returned to my blog after more than a month. I have been gone much longer than I expected to be. My husband was on a three week vacation and we both got sick the last week. I was sure I had the flu, but didn't. Then, we were in a head on collision while sitting at a traffic light. Yes, that was strange. The young man that hit us left the scene. Hmmmmm...  Someone followed him and got the tag number, thankfully. He knocked us into the van behind us. The only injury was a scraped knee I had. I guess it hit the dash board. Thank goodness for seat belts. My youngest son and his family didn't get here for Christmas (first time ever) so they came last week and we all exchanged gifts. They left Monday. So, that is what has been going on in my life.

I have made some cards for Splitcoaststampers while I've been away. I'll try to post them later. This is one I made this week for CAS309. The challenge was snowmen. Well, you know I had to get in on that one, being a snowman lover.

I'm entering my card into the challenge#143 at Merry Monday.  The theme is Caroller's Music.
My card was made using a digital image from Sprinkle N Sparkle/Singing Trio and the sentiment is from Prickley Pear/Fa La La La. Silver twine was added and the sentiment tag connected.

I have a Spellbinders die/Garden Weave I would like to give away to one of my faithful readers. If you leave a comment, you're in the drawing. I will choose a winner next Monday, Feb 2.-Groundhog Day.
