Sunday Sharing

Sunday already! Have a few cards to share with you. The first one is for the sketch at Card Patterns this week. For this I have used some Core'dinations papers and a little My Mind's Eye. I just got some new Tim Holtz embossing folders and I'm in LOVE! Awesome - love this brickwork pattern . The card is for my favorite aunt, Sunny, who is turning 100 the 31st of July! WOW! Wish I could go to her party (in California) BUT it's also my husband's big 70! We are having a huge party for him so that came first.


The next card is for two challenges. The first is the sketch at Get Sketchy and the second is for the digitial image Faith has this week over at Delightful Inspiration. Papers are Basic Grey.


Ok sneaking back in and putting in another card to this post. Seemed silly to post just one. Here's my card for CPS this week. Alot of Core'dinations and embossing.
Then I did this page for the Inspiration Color Challenge at Color Combos this week. These are hard for me for some reason but I'm plowing through and determined to master it! The papers are all from the latest Noel Mignon kit and the little girl is my dh's great-granddaughter, Kayla, while we were down in Padre early this summer.


Then finally some pictures of all the flowers in my yard - well some of them. The early rain we had is giving Texas a beautiful colorful summer. This is a sage bush what just glows with purple flowers after rain.
This year my crepe myrtle are just blowing their hearts out. I have about 15 around my house from these dark pink/red to white to purple in the back. So far the pink/red and white are going nuts - the purple are just starting.

Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Fabulous cards Debbie. You did a great job with both challenges.
    I love Crepe Myrtle's. The purple is my favorite, then the pale pinks. They have been blooming here for over a month. :)
