VSN and Friends Forever...

I have a quick card to share today! I made two today, actually, among tons of coloring! I find coloring to be very relaxing lately. It used to stress me out beyond belief but now the more I practice, the more I love it:)
Anyway, here's my first card, it's for one of the VSN challenges, to fade color from the left to the right, like the winter fading into spring:) This card is pretty CAS for my liking, but it still came out decent I guess:)

We also could only use one embellishment, one sentiment, or one piece of patterned paper. Not one of each...ONLY ONE! OMG I totally grazed over that rule, lol! My subconcious wanted to rebel before I could even see it, ha!  The sentiment is from Verve's Sweet on You and all cardstock (except for the white PTI) is by SU! and the buttons are by PTI!
**********************************************************
This next card is for the Club Anya sketch challenge! The sketch actually had the focal image being a circle, but I'd already colored Chibi Cupcake in and couldn't fit a circle on the small scrap of cardstock, so it had to be rectangle!

Please be gentle, I'm trying to practice coloring hair black, it's much harder than it should be, ha! I used a whole crap load of "C" copics, probably all of them, lol! I just love this sweet Chibi, isn't she too cute? TOTALLY fun to color too! She's digi, so if you love her and want her, go get her now and color in 5 minutes:)

The pp is all from Thrift Shop by OA (except for the book print, that's from an actual book I bought for just such applications!) the sentiment stamp is from Artful Elegance by Verve and the ribbon/button/twine are from PTI!

If you're lookin' for a Memorial Day sale, the WHOLE Verve store is 20% off through May 31st!!!
