Its A 2 for 1

Here is a two for one for you! TSSCs 95 & 96.

Here is #96. This layout was easy to work with. I changed the layout from portrait to landscape so I could use a larger image. I was not sure about the color combo, but it worked itself out and the card turned out beautifully. I achieved the look of the dove flying, by stamping the image and embossing the image twice. On the second layer, I cut the wing all the way down to the body of the dove and adhered the body except for the wing. I then decided to take a glitter pen and went around the outline of the wings.

Here is #95. Each night last week, I sat down to make this card, but got caught up playing Bejeweled2! I am hooked on this game. Anyway, since I had such a lovely Sunday doing absolutely nothing, I decided to backtrack and make this card for last week's challenge. Hope you like it.

TSSC94 - MDS Christmas

I've neglected this blog for a while. Lots have happened since my last post. Almost the last half of the month of September was spent partying. We celebrated many birthdays, including mine. We partied some more, we celebrated my Grandmother's home-going, and we partied some more! I haven't got much stamping done since my last entry, but create a card for MJ's lunchtime sketch challenge. This card was made using Stampin' Up's MDS (My Digital Software). It was easy-peasy! Let me know your thoughts.
