Krafty Krafts!

Hey there y'all. I have had a faboo weekend. Friday was my daughters 12th birthday and we had a blast at the Melting Pot. Saturday we went to The Dinner A'fare with my daughter and my mom and made up 6 meals each for Mom and Dad and for us girls for the next few days. My 12 year old had a blast and we cooked the first meal tonight and it came out great.

I did do quite a bit of crafting, but some of it has to wait a while... since one is for the Bombshell Blog hop on Wednesday and the other is for a special post on Sunday showcasing the new Bombshell Stamping Goodness!!! Yes Bombshell stamps has some AWESOME Asian themed stamps and profits from the sale of these sets go to help the Japan relief fund.

I did get this card completely finished. I am entering into both the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge, and the Sketch Saturday Challenge. I would have entered the ICopic challenge, but alas I was late. :-( BOO.

I used a Kraft cardstock that I had and cut it up to make the center square and the tag with the Sentiment. The DP is Graphic 45, and the copic colors used were YG61, 63, 67 and E23, 25, 27. The eggs are colored with light blue spica, then dark blue spica then gone over with the light blue again to pread out the dark blue.   The very center piece is not a cut out piece of Kraft cardstock. I had the image all done, and it just looked lonely. So I cut out a lacey square with the Nesties, and then cut the center and one edge of it off. YAY... showoff box. :-)

The flowers are Glimmer Misted, and little buttons added to their centers. I used the same DP for the edge "ribbons".

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you come back again on Wednesday during the Bombshell Blog hop (I may have some pretties before that, but I definitely will have some then!!).
