My First Post !!!

Good Morning ,
This will be my first post of many. I hope everyone has a wonderful day.  :)

I am hosting over at the Mod Squad Challenge Blog. I was inspired by a wonderful card maker and new friend Judy Woodland. Judy Woodland,  Nancy Leppek & I were picked for the April Guest Design Team at Gina K Designs - StampTV. Both of these Ladies are fabulous designers. What a pleasure it has been working along side of them, not to mention to get the chance to create and design cards with the wonderful sets that the illustrators created, and the so talented Design Team.  It truly has been a wonderful Journey.  Ok, now these are the cards that I made for the challenge.

First the Challenge was to create a card using a image that one would use to make a masculine card, but make it feminine…


I Love My Gina K Design products, so everything I use is GKD, Pure Luxury Card Stock, Inks, & ribbons. 
***If I do not use GKD I will make a note of this in the description.*** 

On this card I used Kraft, Innocent Pink, & White card stock. The Image is from a set by Theresa Momber "Country Roads". I used Navy Ink to create the color around the truck and to stamp the sentiment. I also used Innocent Pink ink on some grass and flower at the bottom of the sentiment. You probably can't seen it to well, it is very light. I colored that awesome truck in copic markers. I also used spellbinders dies for the oval and the pretty frame thing, added some bling. 

  


This is the second card for that challenge. I used another set by Theresa Momber "Follow Your Dreams". I used Warm Cocoa, Black Onyx, and White card stock, I also used a piece of DP from my stash. I liked the dots. The inks I used were Sweet Corn, Sweet Mango, Innocent Pink, Ocean Mist, Black & Warm Cocoa. Colored the boat, water and grass under the boat, and the dragon flies in copic's.  
Added some ribbon and dots. 


I hope you like them and have a great day.  :)
