CCEE1513 Out like a lamb

Anne is completing her round for hosting the March challenges, and this week as March is making its way to its final week, she has asked us to use a lamb or farm animal on our cards. As the old saying goes, March "goes out like a lamb.:  I used a little stamp I found in the $1.50 bin at Michael's last spring. I loved the detail on the lamb and it even has on a little bow. I chose lots of spring colors to go along with it and the sentiment is from Sweet and Sassy stamps.

I hope you will check over at the CCEEStampers' blog to check out all the other cards from the other DT members. Hope you find the time to play along, and have your little sheep join the flock by linking it over at the blog. If you load it to SCS, please use CCEE1513 as your keyword.

This card is for the sketch challenge today over on Splitcoaststampers. I don't really care for this shade of yellow (crushed curry), but I toned it down some using peanut brittle ink from Memento and stamping the matching background stamp that coordinated with this set from Our Daily Bread Designs. I stamped the verse in bamboo leaves and found this butterfly design paper in my stash of pads. Just so the circle was not so glaring white, I stamped just a subtle portion of that background stamp on it as well. I used my new MISTI on the butterfly and it made it a breeze to line up these two layers. Hope you are enjoying a glorious spring. We have had a lovely week here on the Gulf coast of Texas.

Here's my card for the Just Us Girls Challenge this week. I used gold as my choice color. I used an old SU sentiment, a rose image from Inkadinkado, and the lace from Paper Inspirations. I shaded the rose with a pale yellow copic marker just to add a little dimension to it. The gold is some fancy cardstock I probably got at Michael's or Hobby Lobby. Trying to reduce paper stashes and this gold has been stashed for a while. I used a gold gel pen to outline on the lace.

CCEE1512 Weather

Ann's challenge for us this week is to use some form of weather. I am using a digital image from Sassy Cheryl Designs. I thought these clear dewdrops looked like rain drops, so I placed a few on my card. I didn't have a sentiment that seem to fit, so I freehanded one.
Please check out all the fabulous weather ideas from the rest of the team over on the CCEEstampers blog. Play along and add your card to the linky over there too. If you post on SCS, please use CCEE1512 as your keyword.

CCEE1511 Green

Thanks, Anne, for this fun challenge this week. I love doing this technique with an embossing folder. I don't even remember what it is called, but it looks great in green with this pretty embossing folder. I used the sentiments from an Our Daily Bread Design set I have. The shamrock is a great symbol for the Trinity. I am so lucky to have my faith in Christ, the love of God, and the hope of the Holy Spirit in my life. Have a blessed St. Patrick's Day everyone!!

If you want to join in on the fun this week add CCEE1511 as your keyword for SCS and make sure you link your card over on the blog site:

{Glory Art} Challenge #2 Representative

This is for the {Glory Art}Challenge #2 - Representative. I love this scripture from1 Peter. I draw my zentange with a black fine tip Sharpie, and then color it with my Copic markers.  How excited I am to have found these challenges!

{Glory Art} Challenge} #1 - Trust

I just ran across Patter Cross' {Glory Art} Challenge she started back in January. It was so inspiring that I have decided to play catch up and try to complete them all up to today' s date. These are some scriptures that have spoken to me about TRUST. I love zentangling, so that is the art form I choose to create in for my challenge journal.
