CAS-ual Friday challenge- CFC19

Yay!  I had time to make a couple of cards this week.  I was hoping I would be able to make one to enter into a challenge, so I looked over on the CAS-ual Friday blog.  The challenge was to use paper piecing on a fall-themed clean and simple card, so I gave it a whirl. 

This is what I came up with:

The stamp I used is from EK Success, and I used paper from KI Memories to paper piece the chicken.  I wasn't sure how I would like the card considering there is really nothing around the chicken and it's a white background, but I really like it!  Chickens can be considered fall, right (work with me here... ;)...)?  I mean, you wouldn't "turkey in" on someone... (bad, I know... oh well- I tried!!)  This little chicken makes me smile every time I look at it.  I think I'll use this stamp a little more often!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Please feel free to leave a comment- I enjoy hearing from everyone who stops by!

Another Birthday Card

Wow- it's been a while since I have been able to get any crafting done!  But, school is over for a while and I have a good friend celebrating a birthday this Friday, so I got to make her a card!  I used the new Oliver and Amelia set "Surprise" to make the card, and I used her favorite color, purple.  Here's the card:
I colored Amelia with copic markers and then cut her out so I could place her inside the circle.  Here are the copics I used:
skin:  E00, E000, R20
hair:  E57, E55, E53
dress & bow:  V15, V12, V01, atyou spica lilac glitter pen (on bow)
tights:  V01, V000
shoes:  C3, C5, C7
gifts:  B32, B34, R20, R21, BG15, BG11

I had a lot of fun making this card- I just love using my copic markers!  I know the coloring isn't perfect, but I think I'm getting a little better :).  And I think my friend will like the card, too.  Now I need to make her and her husband a Congratulations card since they just had a baby girl yesterday morning!!

Well, I'm off- got lots to do and it won't get done on it's own!!  Thanks for stopping by!  Feel free to leave me a comment- I love hearing what you have to say!
