Hey Chick

Happy Easter/Resurrection Day.  I hope y'all have had a wonderful day.  We had a great day celebrating the resurrection of our Lord Jesus.

I have a few cards for y'all today.  I am going to post them all in this one post so as I can get done posting and go watch the final installment of The Bible on the History Channel.  If you haven't been watching, you've missed a great series.

My first card uses a very cute image from Digi Darla.  I used my BIC Markers to color in this sweetie..

After printing out and coloring the image, I used my nestabilities to cut out the image and the scalloped mat.  I also cut a sentiment circle and mat.  I used Turquoise card stock from Recollections as my base and the mats.  The DP is from DCWV and I used the flowered DP to make the three roses uses my Sizzix rose die.  I also used a small 5 petal flower punch from EK Success for the base of the roses.  I added some Turquoise polka dot ribbon from my stash as an accent.  I hand wrote the sentiment.  I adhered my image using pop dots.

My 2nd card uses an image from Avadare and I also colored it with BIC Markers.  I printed out the image on Neenah Super Smooth White card stock.

I used the sentiment from Word Art Wednesday for this week.  I began this card with a 6" square Purple base from Colorbok.  I used Old Olive (SU) as my mats.  The DP is DCWV.  I followed a sketch from Friday Sketch Challenge to complete this card.  For the finishing touch, I used some circle bling from Jolee's.  

Word Art Wednesday--Isaiah 55:8
Friday's Sketch--#40

Card #3 uses the progressive freebie image from Imagine That.  It was very easy to add color to this one because it focuses on the sentiment not the images.

I used my BIC Markers to color in the flowers and the butterfly.  I also used a Glitter gel pen to highlight the swirls.  This is a 5x7" card in order to fit all the elements.   I used a premade base for the card.  I used Recollections Yellow as my mats for the DP which is from DCWV.  I added some Orange Gems from Queen and Co to add some bling.
