Miss you

Here are the Miss you cards I made for the Military card drive.

I first started off with the paper, it just said sunflower to me so I made one to go with it. When you die cut the flower the center portion falls out, so I used that for my sentiment below, it fit perfect with the design in the paper.  The embossed image in the middle is part of the die set.  I inked the flower.



Spellbinder - Sunflower set 2
Stamps of Life - minis4circles stamp

The next two cards I used some watercolor background papers that have a design already on them, all you do is color them.  I added some images from my coloring calendars to them.
This first card I used Spectrum Aqua markers to do the water coloring.



Spectrum Noir - Simply Beautiful toppers, colored with Spectrum Aqua markers
Coloring for calm daily coloring calendar - image, colored w/markers
Die Versions - Miss you die cut 3 times and layered


This last one I colored the background using my Distress Oxides.

Spectrum noir = Easy toppers, colored w/Distress Oxides (Background)
Lang, Cheerful Journey daily coloring calendar image - colored w/markers
Pawsitively Pawesome designs - Mini stitched squares die
My Favorite things - Label maker sentiment

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Connie

Three lovely cards!! Oh yes, that bright and happy paper certainly shouts Sunflowers. Love bright and zingy Sunflowers. This will put a warm ray of sunshine into someone's winter's day.

Wowza. Your top card is welcoming me with a bang! I love the bright orange and yellow with a touch of brown. I've been thinking of bringing out my sunflower die. Thanks for the much-needed push.

Your second card has a lovely background design. I'm loving the lime green.

On your third card I love your distressed bg and that stamp is awesome. Something I'd buy for sure.

Have a great day. It's wing night with the gang tonight. I love Thursdays.

Hello Connie! I enjoyed seeing your work! They require a lot of taste and skill, congratulations! I started to follow her because I was aware of her blog through a friend blogger who presents pieces of porcelain. As Connie says she appreciates porcelain, I invite her to visit my blog where I show my painting works on porcelain. If you like try try following it. Good week

These are cheerful, wonderful cards for the card drive. I especially love your colored images. So cute! You could have fooled me with the background on your last card. Nice job, Connie! Looks like designer paper!
