For the Kids

Good morning everyone!
Today I wanted to share with you a few cards that I made for OWH.  This adorable Giraffe is from Bugaboo Stamps and I think it's perfect for a little boy or girl!  My first two cards were colored with Spectrum Noir markers, the Turquoise and Yellow sets.  Joann's is selling them now and they are only $14.99 for 6 and I used a 40% off coupon... what a deal!! It's a great way to add more markers to your collection without spending a lot of money! :)
On my next card I used a fun technique called Ombre... graduating colors from light to dark.  It's the new challenge over at OWH.  I wanted to play along so I whipped up one more card showing my graduating  pink Fishtail Flags!    

These cards were so fun and easy to make!  I hope they put a huge smile on a child's face!  That's it for now... Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

These are so cute Tammy! I know they use the same image and layout but with the different colours, each one looks like a different card. Really cute!

Yikes, these are CA-UTE!!!! I'm loving the colors and dsp patterns and they all make me smile already! Great job on all of them!

Diane said...

Great job on all the cards! Love the different colors. Glad you got the spectrums at a great price. I have copics-- and bought my niece the SN for her birthday-- quite a price difference- and I like both markers! Buying SN for myself could have meant more paper and stamps! lol
