Wedding Bells and Lucky Randy

Hello, and Happy St. Patrick's Day!!  Today I'm sharing two   cards!  The first one is for the first ever Busy Beauties Challenge, and we're supposed to "Think Green".  I made this one using Wish You Luck Randy from The Busy Beauties Boutique.  He's such a cutie!  There are so many great images at BBB, so check them out if you haven't already!!   I colored Randy  with Copics, and the paper is from my scrap stack.  There's a little of this and a little of that, which I tried mixing and matching.  The sketch for the Randy card comes from Card Patterns Sketch #55.  I also think I'll enter this for the red hair technique, in the Copic Blogaversary Celebration.

The second card is one that I made for my nephew and his sweetie for their wedding shower.  I missed the actual shower a couple of weeks ago, because it was a bit too far for me to travel, but my thoughts and well wishes were with them, nonetheless. 

I made this card with one of the wonderful new digital images from Sweet -n Sassy Stamps.   Korin is releasing new digis almost daily, so check in often to see what's new!!   This image was a dream to color, and I love the versatility with the sizing of digital stamps.  This card is a long one, and can be mailed in a regular letter size envelope.  I colored the image with Copics, and added some rhinestones to both the image and those cute little acrylic swirls from Bo Bunny, which just happen to match the swirls in the paper.  The gorgeous paper is from K&Co.

Thanks for visiting me today, and I wish you a glorious day filled with happy stamping!

Love Ya,

You have gone and done it again...left big mouth me utterly speechless! I have so very many adjectives floating around in my head, but there doesn't seem to be one powerful enough to express just how awesome your "Green" card is. I feel like Randy could just hop off the page...and how did you get his hair to look so incredibly real?!?! I need lessons!!!! I feel like I could run my fingers right through it...looks a lot like my Randy's hair before it started falling out...don't tell him I said that;o) All I keep saying is WOW!!! You are amazing!!!!

Your wedding bells card is equally as fabulous!!! How I wish I had a smidgen of your talent!! You can do it all with such gusto!! If you ever decide to teach an online class...sign me up!!!

Much love!!
Carolyn
