Ewe Okay? CCC

 Hello, friends. I hope you are having a great day. We have finally started having some warmer weather. So happy for that. I hope it lasts now that February is almost over. Yikes!! I can't believe we are two months into the new year.

Today I have a card to share with you. This is for the SCS Creative Card Chicks forum. Each month we have a hostess who either sends a card kit to the other members or gives them some sort of a challenge to do. This month it was my turn to be hostess. I decided to do a challenge. It is to honor our team member, Debby, who passed away last year. She was really into livestock shows and 4H and loved animals. The challenge is to make a Thinking of You card using any kind of animal image (NOT one with wings) that you want to use. It would be great if it were some kind of livestock animal, but that doesn't have to be the case. I decided to use this cute Ewe image from SU Farm Fever.

This was pretty simple. I used Lili of the Valley (retired) Nit Wit Enchantment collection designer paper and just a small piece of ribbon. The couple Copic markers were E00; N7, and W2.

Playing Catchup - Barb's Cards

 Hello, my friends. I hope you are having a great Sunday. So far it is good here where I live although there is stormy weather off to the North of H Town. It's hard to believe that it is almost the middle of February and I only have a week and a half left in one of my classes. Then just one for another seven weeks. 

I've been working on purging my craft room of a plethora of crafting supplies. As I've been going through things, I've pulled out some that I'm hoping to sell, some things I just trashed, but the majority I'm taking to a donation center and hope that everything will find a new home. In addition, I'm going through all my old photos from when my children were born until the beginning of digital photos. That's going back quite a few years since my daughters have both reached the big 50. I'd like to start scrapbooking some of them, but in the meantime, I want to get them digitized to save them. I'm surprised that they are still in pretty good shape except the color in the really old ones is not so good. I hope the computer will help clear them up a bit. 

In the meantime, I have been working on some cards. These are mostly for the Card Kit group I belong to. There are six of us and each month one of us is the recipient of card kits from the other five members. We each got to pick two months that we wanted to receive cards and then we are able to pick the them of the card kits we receive. I had April (Masculine) and October (Thinking of You). I still have card kits from 2023 that I have not posted all of the cards that I made from the kits. Today I have four cards from two kits that I got from Barb (barbaralynn). Sadly I don't have all the information for how I made these cards. The first two card shown here are from last April (masculine). I think Barb did a great job with the kit that she sent me for these. The top one did not need any coloring. I did use Copics and a gold gel pen for card #2.

This second set of cards was for last October (Thinking of You). I love flowers, so both of these were so perfect. I also love coloring. I used Stampin Up Blushing Bride for the card base and mat and the Nestabilities 25 Label die. The Copic markers were R81, R83; G21, G24; Y15 and Y17. I added some ribbon and a couple of enamel dots along with the sentiment using SU window punch.

For this card I used Stampin Up Raspberry Ripple for the card base and sentiment mat. I love this designer paper that Barb sent. I finished it off with some gold dots and a piece of ribbon tied into a bow.

Such fun and still playing catch up with a couple more kits. Be back later.
