Shy in the Sky

Hi friends, I'm posting today with a card using Shy in the Sky from Sasayaki Glitter Designs, I chose this image because our grandson will be turning 1 in a couple weeks and his daddy is a pilot, thought this would be perfect!  Not that he will know, but I do and at this point.....that's good enough!

I paper pieced the airplane, used distress ink and a hand made cloud stencil for the sky, the cityscape is a stamp from Paperie Ink and I used a silver ink pen for the stripe on the plane.  I tend to wait until I know for sure what occasion I want to use a card for before adding a sentiment, but I think Celebrate or Happy Birthday is going to go on the top somewhere.

I hope you all have a great day, hop over to join a challenge or two at Sasayaki Challenge Blog or FB group!

I like your face

When I saw this darling little panda from Gerda Steiner Designs, I had to get it and play!

I love pandas and Gerda's designs, I love the cute and whimsy, love using fun colors, papers and patterns.  I colored this with distress inks and prisma pencils and then used my copic in BG10 and BG11 for some color and interest around the panda and to make him pop a little.  I think he's adorable and had fun coloring him up!

New Beginnings...

Happy New Year to everyone!!  I hope this year brings happiness, joy, adventure and comfort to us least that is what I am hoping for! :)    We have a couple grandbabies coming this year, so that's definitely going to bring some joy and adventure!

This is my first post of 2018 and I've got a card to share for a very special occasion.  I used the image Stella for my card today from Sasayaki Glitter Designs and wanted to make a pregnant/congrats card for my daughter who is due with her first baby April 18!

I colored with copics and used paper from the Garden Party paper pad from Pebbles, added some flowers and sequins.  I LOVE the colors and patterns in this paper pad, so feminine and pretty!

I hope you like my card and will also join us at Sasayaki Glitter Designs for challenges on the blog and FB group!!
