2 for 2


I wanted to support the "A" Team for Kenny K's Krafty Girlz challenge this week. As most of my followers know I send cards to my grandsons. They love getting their own mail and I always make them cards that are alike but also different. I really had a lot of fun with these cards. I love the image which I colored with Copics. (I will admit I did not color the soccer ball correctly in either image. LOL!  I used my new die on the blue card and recycled twill ribbon on the green card. Both cards were made with scrap paper.I also did some hand stitching on both cards and add spiral brads on the green card. I also used embossing folders on both cards for texture. You can enter this weeks challenge at:

You always come up with the most innovative embellishments. It takes me an hour to place a darn flower! and everytime I see your cards I think how nice the embossed paper looks but I always forget to do that too. Must be that old age thing again!

Brilliant cards - I'm sure the boys will love them. Your embellishments and the texture on the base cards really finish these off.

Thanks for joining us over at Pear Tree Designs.

I agree with Amanda, I'm in awe of you for how you can create these little cuties & make them up so fast. It takes me forever to decide which ribbon, paper & flowers to use ... The boys are so lucky to have you to send them mail ... Love your cards Patty & always enjoy seeing what you come up with next.
Hugs, Janie
