Two For Tuesday...A Day Late!

Good Morning...Happy Humpday! Here's a couple of cards that I wanted to post yesterday and call it Two For Tuesday but because I wasn't sure that the recipients had received them I thought I had better wait. They are for our good friends Kathi and Bob. I knew when Bob's birthday was and when I was making his, I realized that I hadn't made one for Kathi because I didn't know when her birthday was. This is the one I sent Kathi with a note saying to accept this as either an early or belated card vowing to get it right next year. While I call them the Disney enthusiast, I really think that it's Kathi and Bob tinkers in trains

This one is for Kathi. Made with Disney Clip art, I used Copic markers for her face and paper pieced her bow and dress. It didn't photograph well, it looks a bit washed out---

Here is the recipe---
Card Size: 5x5 Square
Copic Marker/Paper Piecing
Stamp/Image: Disney Clip Art
Nestibilities: Circle/Scallop
Cuttlebug: Disney A2 Combo Die Celebrate
Punch: Stampin' Up Corner/Edge Scallop Trim
Font: Computer Generated-Minnie
Accessories: Ribbon, Brad, Craft Yarn, Heart Charm, Foam Pop Dots
Base Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: On Line Freebie
Other Cardstock: Metallic (brand unknown)

This one is for Bob but it didn't photograph well either. Each layer is pop dotted but it doesn't show in the picture and the coloring isn't right either. I love DCWV LaCreme cardstock but for some reason it never photographs well for me. I don't know if it's the lighting or the camera. I cut the image in 3 equal segments then layered and pop dotted each segment ---
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: 4.75 x 5
Stamp/Image: JenU Designs
Font: Computer Generated-Teletype
Accessories: Brads, Foam Pop Dots
Base Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: DCWV-LaCreme

That's it for today...Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit. Enjoy your day...I'll see you next time!

Beautiful cards as always, my Dad was a train nut, he would of loved that card!!! I love how you cut it into 3 sections, makes it really "pop"!! The Disney one is great, too, I really like the "mouse" balloon!!

Thank you for the nice comment...and the answer is yes I am, but I don't mention it much, I am not into it big time, economy here is just so bad, I do a few workshops a year, and have other stamp things at my house, I do love it, and love the product, just not motivated "yet", so I make my quotas so far and get by...aren't you glad you the fact that I use tons of other products as I love it all!!
