PPA 197 - Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone!!!  Exciting news to share!!  I'm in Seattle visiting my daughter Amanda for Spring break!!!  It's been so wonderful seeing her!!!  I've missed my girl!!!  It suppose to rain the entire time I'm here, but that makes no difference to me.  We have just been dashing here in there and catching up sitting in the amazing coffee houses all over downtown!!

Today's sketch offers so much for the imagination!!  I can't wait to see the creations you offer us Pals!!!  It's incredible the works of art you create!!!   Today's card is in honor of fabulous Seattle area with it's fresh seafood and amazing coffee!!  What do you think?

The fish netting in the back is actually cheese cloth to represent the two panels in the sketch.   The crab was so much fun to make!!!  I found several punch art tutorials online.  The tutorial that inspired me most was from Mercedes Weber.  Her blog is HERE.  Wow!!  What an amazing job she did!!

PPA 195 - Color Challenge

Hi everyone!!!  It's Spring break here in Texas and around most of the state!!  It's just been gorgeous here the past couple of days!!!
Don't you love these colors today?  These couldn't have come at a better time!!  I'm so ready for gardening and cool evenings on the patio.  Today's card was completely inspired by these past couple of gorgeous days.    Here's my card below:

This Saturday is my sisters birthday.  She has been dealing with a REALLY harsh winter in West Virginia....along with everyone else on the East Coast.  When I saw these colors, the Watercolor Wonder DSP and the over the top cute Vivid Vases; I new immediately I had to make a happy fun card for her.    I used the Banner Punch I got FREE from the Sale-A-Bration catalog to make the sun burst and the Honeycomb Embossing Folder to add texture for the background.  So much fun!!!!!
