Sentimental Sunday and Kaboodle Doodles

In an attempt to get a little caught up, I am combining these two challenge posts. The first card, is not a card but a bookmark! The challenge this week on Sentimental Sundays is Anything BUT a Card. Please be sure to stop by and check out the marvelous creations of the design team and meet all our new design team members while you are there!!!


The butterfly image is from a new (to me) digital company called Digi Design House. They have some wonderful images and I am having fun coloring them up. You'll be seeing much more from them here in the future. I colored the image with Copics and then covered it with Glossy Accents. It's mounted on a lacey scallop oval nestie in Lavender Lace (SU) and that is mounted on an oval of Cameo Coral (SU). I attached a white satin ribbon and stamped the sentiment using a little dollar alphabet set I got at Mikes.

This is my entry for this week's Kaboodle Doodles challenge which is to Show us Your Colors! I made this card in honor of Memorial Day which is the day every year when Americans remember all those who have served and continue to serve in our Armed Forces.


This image is from this week's sponsor on Kaboodle Doodles - The Paper Shelter. It is colored with a combination of digital coloring and Copics and is mounted on some scraps of blue and white. The card base is Cherry Cobbler (SU) and the sentiment is one I generated on my computer.

Well the sun is out (no telling how long it will last) and I am going to try to get a bunch of pictures taken while it does!

Thanks for visiting!
