Four Card Bonus!


Good morning friends~  I hope you don't mind if I play a little "catch-up" here.
I've been super busy with life and have found very little time to spend in my craft room until the other day, so I made up some cards for challenges that I wanted to play along with.  

Let's start with this cute little fella:  
I think these little gnomes from MFT are so cute and I've always wanted them but never bought them.  Kara brought lots of MFT stamps to Kansas and this set was among them so I couldn't resist stamping a bunch of these guys out to color at home using Copics.
This card is being entered into The Paper Players ~ CAS Challenge.
Next up is a card for the PTI Make-It Monday Challenge.  
Lexi had a great idea for creating Graffiti Word Art.  My first attempt at the word art ended up in the trash and this one almost did but I persevered and decided that I'd at least try to finish the card.  My word didn't come out as artsy as Lexi's but overall the card is kind of cute so I'll use it.  I used Birthday Balloons, Bold & Beautiful Sentiments and Watercolor Wonder.

Next up is two cards for the Twofer Card Challenge and the key word is
I used Altenew's Modern Cats to make a vibrantly colored birthday card and an "Encouragement" card.

The colorful birthday card is being entered into the Seize the Birthday Challenge where the topping is "Vibrant Colors" and AAA Cards ~ Perfect Day
 

 I'll also be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

Thanks for sticking with me and thanks for stopping by!

  2. What a purrfect cat image that is! She looks regal and gorgeous in both rainbow colors and pretty black and white! Both cards are wonderful designs, Birgit, and, as usual, all your cards are impeccably executed and colored! They all made me smile hugely! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #4! Hugs, Darnell

  11. Your gnome card is just too cute, great coloring of it, love the little scene you made with him and he mushrooms :) Very cool job on the graffiti card, I liked what she did on the video but didn't know if I would be able to do it. I love your rainbow of cats, so fun, and your sunshine card both have great sentiments to go with each!!

  22. These cards are all wonderful. Truly a work of art. Thank you for joining our previous Challenge and would like to invite you back to our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I would like to leave you with one of the greatest verses in the Scripture from Romans 5:8 which says, "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Have a wonderful day!
