SFYTT and some NEWS!!!

I meant to make this announcement a yesterday, but I've had lots of posts to do and wanted to give each one their own blog post, lol! 
I am excited because Tab from 7 Kids College Fund chose me as one of her new DT members for the July-December 2010 Term! YEAH!!! I buy lots of my supplies from 7kids, you just CANNOT beat their prices! And she ships super fast, even to Okinawa! BONUS! So if you're ever in need of some supplies, I'd appreciate it SO much if you'd shop through my link! You can find my link on the right hand side of my blog under "good shopping". Just click on 7Kids and GO NUTS! Thanks so much:)

Okay, so today is SFYTT day and I made TWO cards! I made a girly one, and a masculine one! Here's the sketch!
First up, is my sweet Oliver card. Oliver is from My Favorite Things by TGF! He breaks my heart, he's SO durn cute!!! 
Didn't I tell you he was sweet? I love how he's cartin' around his little fish, lol! I colored him in with Copics and sponged some blue sky around him, though it's kind of hard to see in this picture!

The cardstock is a new color by SU! called Marina Mist and the dp is from Marracech by Basic Gray! I kept this card very simple, since most boys and men don't want a lot of fussin' on their cards, lol!

Okay, next up is my girly card, and I *LOVE* it!
Isn't she FABULOUS?????? OMG I am LOVING all the new mermaid images lately! I have all the ones from CC Designs and the Kraftin' Kimmie ones too! Just have to ink them all up. So many images, SO little time, lol!
This particular beauty is "Pearl" by CC Designs! She is simply gorgeous and SO fun to color. I can imagine a million different color combinations for her. Unfortunately, I forgot to write down my Copic colors, ARG! I hate it when I forget, which is almost ALWAYS! LOL! I always have a tornado mess of Copics when I'm done coloring so I have to put them away before I begin my card and then I forget to write them down. 

Anyhoo, the sentiment is from Moments in Bloom by Unity! I love that set!! So far, the sentiment is the only stamp I've used, but I plan on inking that set up in the near future!

The cardstock base and ribbon is Hawaiian Shores by PTI and the dp is from Green Boutique, also by PTI:)
I used a bunch more fabulous Prima Pearl flourishes on this card too, because her name is Pearl and she deserves some, lol! I painted some Lime Green Stickles on her tail for some sparkle and it's AMAZING irl!

Okay, well thanks for sticking with me as long as you have, lol! I know I've been chatty and probably overloaded you with pics but you have LOTS more to see! Head on over to see what the rest of the incredible SFYTT sistah's! 
Thanks for stopping by today:)
