2S4Y and Tiddly Ink Challenge Cards

Happy Saturday everyone. It's been such a long week for me over here on my part of bloggland. I've been so sick with bronchitis and it's finally starting to give me some relief. Although I haven't been able to sleep much lately with all of the coughing. My throat's on fire and I feel like I have pulled muscles in my belly from the chronic coughing. Not to mention I don't have a voice right now. So this morning, which I've been up since about 1 a.m. , I was able to make a couple cards for some challenges and I wanted to share them .....Enjoy!!!!
This card I made for 2S4Y. It's Kazan's sketch #55...I found this really fun to play with. It's been awhile since I've been able to play with them over there to. I used a stamp that I had to dust off from Paper Artsy and layered it 3 times and added glossy accents to the top layers, added some feathers, a bow, flower and some star bling...the paper is from My Mind's Eye.....I have to say that I really do like how this card turned out to..
This card I made for Tiddy Inks embellishment challenge. We were to use lace or buttons or both. I used a couple of Christy's digi's on this and turned them into shrinky dinks. I just opened MS Word and made my images about 3 times bigger than they were. Because you know how shrinky dinks shrink after they have been heated. I also lightened the contrast before I printed them off, and colored in the images with chalk, added a cute little acrylic heart onto the froggie from Heidi Grace....
just a close view of Mr. Froggie and the teenie tiny heart....this was the perfect size too.....
and here's a little closer view of the digi going swimming. Isn't she just soo cute in her tire tube....this so reminded me of our little one so I just had to have her....if you have been over to Tiddly Inks you should. She have just the cutest digi's. Christy has a sale going on right now to....
Well that's all I have for today. I'm going to try and work on some more challenges. I hope you all have a wonderful afternoon....hugs from Charm City
