A Margarita and a Couple of Frogs!

I'm out straight this week creating samples for Dave for the Rubbernecker Booth at the Stamping show coming up this weekend in West Springfield, MA at the Big E -  Anne Harmon and I will be working the booth. 

But I wanted to get some posts up on the old blog so you wouldn't be bored to tears coming by and seeing the same old post all week!!

Here are a few of the cards I've made.  You'll find all of the supplies used at the end of my post.

We'll start off with this cool cactus margarita glass - complete with a 'salt rim' of Crystal Ice Stickles!

 Now that we've been fortified with a beverage we can continue with two frog cards!   I colored this image with a combination of Copics and Ranger Distress Markers.
 And this cute little critter was colored with watercolor crayons and a water brush.
 If you'd like to see what SCS challenges I made these cards for - you can check out my gallery over at Split Coast.

Thanks for stopping by!  If you come to the Stamping Show in West Springfield, MA this weekend - please come by and say 'Hello' to Anne and me!!
