Double Feature

Good Morning!  Happy Saturday!  I'm excited to be off this weekend.  It'll be a busy weekend, but I am happy to just be home and with my kids.

I just finished up a couple of cards that I want to share with you.  The first card is for Inktegrity's Sketch Challenge blog.  This was a fun sketch and I was able to incorporate another great SVG cut from Penny Duncan Creations.



When I was on Inktegrity's design team, it was a great privilege to have access to Joni's awesome images.  Well, as the winter team was leaving we got to request an image.  I chose a unicorn, but fellow DT member Jeanette picked a flamingo.  This is actually my first opportunity to play with Rico.

Supplies:
Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pink Passion, Green Galore, Gable Green
Copics:  C8, E53, E57, RV000, RV02, RV10, RV13, YG00, YG03
Tools:  SCAL/Cricut, Spellbinders ribbon labels, Cuttlebug Folder Candy Stripes
Embellishments:  buttons

This next card is for several challenges.  I played along with Friday Sketchers (the sketch), Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge (Quote me), Raise the Bar (Color Me Happy).


I followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers, using a wonderful quote by John Leonard "It takes a long time to grow an old friend," and my favorite color is purple.... and polka dots. This card features Nora on a Swing from CC Designs.

Supplies:
Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Lavender Lace
Paper:  Colorbok
Copics:  BV00, BV02, BV04, B000, E00, E02, E37, E53, E57, Y11,
  Y15, YG03, YG95, YR20, YR61
Prismacolor Markers:  Goldenrod, Colorless Blender
Tools:  Nestabilities, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder
Embellishments:  Pearls by Recollections

I hope you enjoyed by double feature today.  Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hey Melissa! Thanks for coming around to play with our new challenge blog! I truly appreciate when past DT members so us some support.

I love Rico! I too have recently started working with SVG files and Penny Duncan has the best nestabilities files around (and you can't beat the price!). I love them! Another website to check out is:

Mary has lots of freebies and her files are very reasonable too! I have a page on my blog called Places to Get Digital Cutting Files. Check it out, there may be some that you have not discovered yet!

Anyways, thanks for playing along with Inktgrity's Hump Day Inspiration!
