Yay for Thursday!!

I'm so glad it's Thursday...I feel like this week just dragged on (I'm dealing with a cold so things seems to move slower when I'm not 100%). Hope everyone else has had a good week though!! I just wanted to share a couple of cards that I made this week.

The first card is for my bf's meme's birthday (she loves the colour red, so that's what I chose to go with for this card). I decided to use Cuppcakeabella (I really like this stamp and I find that I use her a lot for birthday cards). I inked her with Versafine ink in Onyx Black and embossed her with shimmer detail powder. I coloured her in with my Tombows and added some liquid applique as the cupcake icing and also used some Glossy Accents on the cherry and on the polka dots on the dress. I also brought out my Cuttlebug and used my scalloped rectangle Nesties on the red cardstock and used my new paisley cuttlebug folder on the main body of the card. I also used my new threading water punch on the textured paper at the bottom of the card. I really liked how this card turned out and Meme was really happy when she received it. I just want to say a BIG THANK YOU goes out to my Bella Sistah, SHANNON ROBERTS, for sending the paisley cuttlebug folder and the threading water punch my way!!

My second card is a get well card for my step-sister...she was in a pretty bad car accident at the beginning of this week, but is doing pretty well now. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to go visit her in the hospital due to my cold, so I wanted to send her something to show her that we were thinking of her. GET WELL SOON MARIANNE!! The image I chose is actually from an image swap that I did with Jacquie (THANKS AGAIN JACQUIE!!). I coloured it in with my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I also used my Stylized Flowers cuttlebug folder and added some copper baubles and a bit of ribbon to finish the card off. I wanted to keep the card simple but pretty and I think I managed to do just that.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my cards. Hope you all have a great night!!
