Darlene's Card Kit - 2023 Catch Up

 Hello my friends.  Happy Saturday. I'm finally getting the chance to post some cards I made with card kits I received last year. I'm one of six members of the Creating and Making Fun Card Kits. We each have two months during the year when we get to choose the theme for the card kits we want to receive. Each month we will either send out a kit to the person who's month it is or we will receive a kit from the other five members of the group. Sadly, I have not posted some of the cards I made with kits I received last year. Sometimes Life gets in the way. 

These are two cards I made with a kit sent by Darlene. My theme for the month was masculine cards. These images were perfect.

What guy doesn't like cars. Thanks Darlene for the great kit.

Thinking of You With Roses - CCC Monthly Challenge

 Hello, my friends. I hope you are having a great week. It's been crazy weather down here in H Town. One day warm, next day cold, next day stormy, next day sunny, etc. You get the picture. It's always something different here. 

Today I have a card to share with you for the Creative Card Chicks Monthly Challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers. Each month we have a hostess who either sends each member a card kit to work with or gives us a challenge and we use our own supplies. This month our hostess was VikkiJo and she sent us a lovely set of images of various flowers. So far I've only made one card using her kit, but I know I'll be making more using the rest of the flower images. I love working with flowers. I also love butterflies, and Vikki Jo including some really cute little golden butterflies in the kit. 

The butterflies really pop out except for the tiny one on the leaf down in the lower right corner. I used SU Blushing Bride for the card base. The image is from PSX and it says "Rosa" on the image. Not sure who the designer paper came from. I checked SU and didn't see it there. It's very pretty and very bold. My sentiment came from Whiff of Joy (retired) General Sayings II. I used Copic markers to color my rose - R20, R81, R83, G21, and G24. That's it for now.
