Card Making & Coloring...

I got a chance to play a little in my office yesterday.  Thought I'd share them here.

I created 3 different cards yesterday.  A thank you to one of my derby sisters and a set of cards that's a little harder.  We found out last weekend that a high school friend of our son who is also a neighbor was in a car accident.  This young lady broke her back and is still in the hospital.  I can't even imagine what her parents are going thru.  And though we don't know them all that well I wanted to offer our support.  I'll get these signed by Mel this evening and go leave them on the porch.

Here's the one for her folks.
Supplies: Patterned Paper - Basic Grey, Stamps - PTI, Die Cut - PTI, Coloring Medium - Copic (inspiration and coloring  from Debbie Olson)
I didn't want to include any kind of get well type sentiment on Miranda's card.  With not knowing her condition or the prognosis it just didn't feel appropriate.  And I wanted it to be bright and happy.
Supplies: Patterned Paper, Stamps, Die Cuts - PTI, Ink - Paper Co, Button & Floss - unkn, Glitter Pen - Spica
I also created this to work for one of the recent Papertrey Playhouse challenge.
And finally the thank you for my derby sister.  I tried to color it as much like her as I could.  I even included homage to both of the derby teams she plays on - the Bad News Beaters & the Tent City Terrors.  I hope she enjoys it.
Supplies: Patterned Paper - HGD, unkn, Coloring Medium - Copic,  Stamp - American Art Stamps

That's if for now.  Still trying to get pics of the layouts I did for the upcoming class at Paper Vineyard.  Look for them as soon as I can.

Have a beautiful day.
