Thursday, January 13, 2011-Sew What?




My images were colored with Copic's, the card stock is by MFP and the DP is Basic Grey. The ribbon was some I had left over from last year, I think I got it at Joanne's. This is a really fun set and can't wait to try different cards with it.

Another card using Tuesday's release " In The Forest"



After thinking about this bunny in that basket yesterday, I decided to play along with the sketch challenge over at SCS and try it out. I colored the bunny with Prisma Pencils .The basket weave stamp is also by MFP " Background Fun", I colored it with Copic's.

Here are more gorgeous sample the rest of the team has.
