For my card I used images from the Sunshine and Rain stamp set and sentiments. I colored the images using Promarkers and Copic markers. The background papers are from Stampin up and Jillibean Soup; cardstock is Stampin Up. the sentiment is punched using a circle punch and then layered onto a Martha Stewart doily. raindrops are gems falling from the clouds! I enjoy resizing, layering, and grouping the images such as I did with the clouds and sun before inserting over the girl image.

It's Wednesday and TIME for this week's Simple Salutations Challenge at Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps! The theme is TIME!
For my card I chose an image and sentiment from the Timeless Friendship stamp set. I love the look of black and white together! I used some black polka dot paper tape from Creative Memories to add some texture to my CAS card. I fussy cut the watch and layered it onto the card base using dimensionals. A Martha Stewart punch was used to create a border.

The Crafting When We Can Challenge is to create a card using an anniversary theme. The challenge sponsor is Sassy Studio Designs. I chose the Martini Pin Up Sassy image to celebrate the anniversary theme! I used Peach and White as my main colors, which is also the color combination we used for our wedding 28 years ago! However, no martinis were served!
