Colour Dare #82

Hello Crafty friends,
   I haven't played along with the Color My Heart dare in a bit but this week I had some flowers stamped from before and thought they would work for this challenge....thank you for the motivation to get the images coloured!! I have 3 now so I think I will make them into a gift set :)
Here is my card...

The stamp set is called Enjoy every moment, its retired but a great image for practicing my colouring :) I hope you like it!

skylark sympathy

Hello Crafty friends!
    I just LOVE the new skylark paper pack don't you? I had to make a sympathy card so this is what I came up with
I used the Damask embossing folder and sanded it. then lots of Art philosophy cuts and rolled flowers and glass beads. retired juniper ribbon, a bit of lace and ta da :)
I am entering this card into the Heart 2 Heart Challenge for their challenge to make something shabby chic. I think it qualifies :)
Hope you get to craft today

Thank you… now on to our hop! 
If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop. If you came from Arlene's blog then you are in the right place!
My focus was on the supper cute mini stamp sets! I used 3 of the new sets on page 119 of the new book. I coloured them with markers after embossing them for more emphasis. I also embossed the back ground paper with dots (you can find them on page 130) and Ivy lane paper on pg 25.
For this card I cut the cloud shape out from the cricut and embossed them with the dots, added shading with sky markers. And I used the new balloons and the happy birthday mini from the last book its number is m1033 in case you need that $2.95 its easy to have them all :)

I cut the shape for the perfect day banner out on the cricut too.. :)
Your next stop on the Team Braer Hop is on to Cindy's blog!
