Looks like a trend now...

...so I'm knocking on wood!

Hey there and good morning! Wow...I can't believe it's already June...the smack dab in the middle of the year! I know where most of my half year has gone...do you? Anywho...I wanted to show you a couple cards today of stuff I made while MIA...I'm still working on some new stuff and hope to update real soon on the newer stuff! Expect Bombshells! *wink* Today's cards were made for my friends Cheryl aka DJ Cher for a Riley/Sophie swap. As you can tell...the cards were when I was at my mad woman peek because they honestly do not reflect my style. Still...I couldn't back down from the swap...I can't do that to a HO...especially my sweet Deej! LOL! BTW...I am SOOOO jealous of her! Guess who she got to meet AND STAMP WITH??? None other than Miss Hanna STamps herself...Kristi!!! SHUT UP RIGHT??? Check out her blog header! Jealous much? YES PLEASE!

Ok so this first card is Sophie Ballerina. I saw a card on SCS (I'm sorry I forgot who...but I'll search to credit...but I'm sure it was Jeanne) that had a banner and so I had to copy the idea! I was in a dire loss of my muse...so I had to "copy" from somewhere just to pull out the cards. She was colored using Hanna Stamps Riley Copic set. I hope she wasn't too blah...like in simple blah!

Copics used:
C3 & RV11
CS/DP: PPirrouette, CChip, & Bright White
Ink: BBlack & Copics
Stamps: Ballet Sophie
Embellishments: flat back pearls
Others: Giga scalloped punch, Mega circle punch, SU scalloped punch, 1 3/8 punch, 1 1/4 punch, & piercing tool

Now comes Sleepy Time Riley! I had initially chosen Sleepy Time Riley because I wanted to use my Glow In The Dark paint...but OMG I could not get it right to fit into those small moons for the life of me!!! This card was also a copy (or CASE) only I flipped it. This is the card I CASED. Once again...not one of my favorite work...but I had to pull them thru so I wouldn't fail! This is also for DJ's swap. I used Copics on him too...only I didn't take a picture of those! YIKES! Distraction takes over my brain sometimes! So...whatcha think? Be brutaly honest...lol.

CS/DP: CChip, BBlue, Bright White, & unknown DP vendor
Ink: BBlack & Copics
Stamps: Sleepy Time Riley
Embellishments: brads
Others: crimper & piercing tool
