Abracadabra!

Hi there,
I'm back with a quick post to share 2 cards ~ First up is for Freshly Made Sketches with a sketch by Jen T. and since this is the first time I'm inking up this stamp set, I am also entering my card into Darnell's NBUS Challenge ~


I pulled out my Copic markers to color this sweet MFT stamp set called "Magical Day" and added a few soft clouds in the background. 
Darnell's challenges (and regular posts) are always fun and this time, she is sharing a humorous card or two with us each day of the challenge. If you haven't been over there lately, be sure to visit her Here!

***********************************

My 2nd card is also for Darnell's NBUS Challenge as well as CAS on Friday (use a die cut on your card) and Just Us Girls Challenge who are having their 
‘Wild Card Week’ and the theme is “Word Die Cuts”.


This is the first time I'm using this MFT die. I stamped the remainder of the sentiment from the 'Grateful' set and added a pop of color with 'Distressed Patterns' and a few splatters. 


Thanks so much for stopping by ~ Have a great week!

Your fantastic creations are spot on for these challenges, Barb! Your take on the sketch is MWAH and adorable and your use of the word die is a winner in my book for the die cut challenges! I especially love the design of your Blessed card!! Thank you so much for the shoutout and for playing in my NBUS Challenge #12! Hugs, Darnell

A couple of CAS beauties, Barb ... that little bear really does have a sense of magic about him, and he's so cute with the tiny rabbit ... love the cool graphic style of your second card ... the soft colours and scripty sentiment are a brilliant contrast to the straight stripes! Hugs, Anita :)

Kay Miller said...

Such cuteness!! That first one with the little bear is just darling! The second one with the silver sentiment is so pretty and elegant! Beautiful work Barb!! ((Hugs))

Karren said...

Wow! These two cards are both gorgeous. That wee bear is too cute and I love how you've used him with our sketch. And your "blessed" card was so deserving of the win at Just Us Girls. Well done, my friend!
