It's been awhile...

I've been feeling icky the past few days.  Going to the doctor on Monday to see if I have strep throat. :-O  Let's hope not...

Anyway, I've got two cards to share with you and I know it's been a long time since you've seen anything but a DT post so don't faint! ;)  Just joking--I appreciate all of you!

I've also got a little piece of news.  I was asked the join the DT at For Your Inspiration and I've accepted--so get ready for two more cards a month from me!  I like the flexibility of bi-weekly challenges and I am so grateful for the chance to be on another bi-weekly DT! :)  They also have 6 months planned in advance which helps my crazy OCD habits and need for structure.  Can you tell that I work with children with special needs, lol?!

So, now that's out of the way...let's get to these cards, shall we?  Like I said above, I've got two coming your way!!!

Here's the first one~

(pink ink, patterned paper, pink gems)

This is an image that I wouldn't usually use, but I won it after this past round of the Link Up For Pink challenge.  I decided to stamp this little doll, named Camila, in dark pink ink and stamp her onto some floral paper.  I then added some shimmer with a glitter gel pen.  I think she turned out well! :)

Card two~

For these fabulous challenges~





This was a fun card to make.  I got to use my brand new Martha Stewart punch to make my little heart and scallop punched pieces and added a bit of pizzazz with pearls and a glitter gel pen.  Sentiment is by Kaiser Kraft.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek--I hope to post again for "fun" really soon!  I appreciate all your kind words and I hope you come and join in these fabulous challenges!  Happy stamping! :)

These are both great Mynnette! I love the funky 60s style of the first and your neat CAS heart card is fab too. I do hope you feel better soon (am just back on my feet after a week-long humdinger, so you have ALL my sympathy.) Vicky x

Wow Mynette what an artsy and fab first card. Love those colors. Must admit that I couldn't figure out what the image was til you showed the close up and then then I was in awe over your creativity. Your CAS card is terrific too :o) Hope you are better soon. Hugs. D
