Thank you cards

This entire week has been teacher appreciation week. These cards are to say thank you to some of my parents. Thank goodness I teacher special education and I have only have 6 students this year.
The stamps are from Quatros - Hero Arts set colored with my prismacolor pencils and blended with Stampin' up pen. The design around the edge of the circles is from Dear Lizzy + American Crafts Warble set. The paper is DCWV the glittered all dressed up matstack. The ribbons are from my stash. The flowers are form Recollection Boutique Fleur. The ink is Stazon Jet black. The glitter on the women is Stickles in various colors.
I love all of them but my favorite is the one with the animal print.

Birthday card for my son-In-law and for the PK challenge

The plaid background is from the All ABout Boys Stack (DCWV). The stamps  are from Stampin' up Loads of Love and the accessory set that goes with it.  The road on the bottom is from Hot Off the Press Stamped Stitches set. I colored the gifts to go with the paper.  The decorative brad is from Making Memories Antique copper round 1. I have been holding on to them for what seems like forever. As soon as I started this card they just seemed perfect for this card.

Peachy Keen Challenge

Ok so where to begin. The background is a red orange shade metallic paper from the Safari Kids cardstock matstack. The flower strip of paper is from the All Dressed Up matstack(DCWV).  The stamp is Quatres from Hero Arts. The circle is from Me & My Big Idea - Sassy Icons. The ribbon is Martha Steward's from the green Elegant Ribbon pack. I colored her with my Prismcolor pencils and blended the skin tone and the cheeks with my blender pen from Stampin up and I colored the red flowers on her hairband and on the circle with a red Sharpie permanent marker. The gold on her hair  is from a metallic set of markers and of the black dots are stickles. The Embellishments are from various companies. Personally I love it, hope others do as well.
