5 Cards to Share

I've got 5 cards to share with you today - I made 4 of them for the Dare To Get Dirty challenges held over on Split Coast these last two weeks - and one for last Sunday's Featured Stamper also from SCS.

I squeezed 4 challenges into this whopping 6x6 card using flowered DP - mostly in orange and a chicken coop from Rubbernecker Stamps for my image.
I made the sentiment with my Brother Label Maker - sometimes you just don't have the right stamp - KWIM???

I was inspired by these African Masks My Aliyah image, weed, and sentiment from Fashion Icon set #455 are all from Rubbernecker Stamps I clear embossed the weeds on the bottom panel. The image is colored with copics and I sponged the edges with Ranger Distress Inks. I colored her arm bracelet and earing with a gold spica pen so they are sparkly IRL!

I made a second card for Saturdays Inspiration challenge - inspired by the colors in this abstract sun painting. My card is also for 2 more DTGD challenges. I embossed the bg and frame with clear embossing powder. The feather is stamped with ink that matches the CS. The card is cut with a big scalloped circle nestie and the sentiment frame is cut with Labels Four.

Wow, you have been busy and I love all of them. But you are going to laugh - when I saw that clever chicken coop card, I had to do a double take because I thought I must have landed on Bonnie's Lucky Clucker blog by mistake, as I have both of you in the same folder in my reader! Hah!!!

Gosh Julia, these are awesome! I especially love the humor of the "Chicken coop" one - it just hit my funny bone, I think! They are all gorgeous - the Christmas card, the Birthday one (great colors!) and I also love the get well card at the end. It's classy.

You have been "uber" creative this past week or so! I'm very impressed and thankful for your inspiration!

Hugs!
