We are celebrating "Earth Day" here at Michelle Perkett's Studios
We were to create a card from recylced elements it also had to contain the color green.... I had lots of fun trying to think up what I could use....Here is what I came up with, hope you like it!!
The flowers are made of used dryer sheets that I  colored with ink..... I used a piece of tshirt cardboard for the card itself and also for the other cardboard elements ....... I then put them throught the Cuttle Bug and embossed....The birthday greeting is from an old birthday card..... the yellow and green paper are left over papers from another project. HERE is where you can get this cute image.

Sassy Cherly's

I had such a wonderful Easter Break ......I got to play more play. So I made quite a few cards .... I will  share them with you all in the coming days.
The first one I would like to share is an image from Sassy Cherly's she has so many cute and funny digital stamps.... you can get them at her Online store Here .Be sure to go and visit her. The paper I used was a combination of Cosmo Crickett...DCVW... and paper I have had for quite and button were things I have in my stash and I don't recall from where.
I have been coloring with a mixture of Copics and Triart markers and I have to say that I am loving both brands. I like the Triart because it has a bullet point that I can get into small spaces and the colors blend really well ... they also blend with copics.Triart only has a limited number of colors but I really like them alot.
