Jack & Piper, Simply Betty digi Stamps

OMG I am sooooo glad I can finally post these cards! I made both of them this past week but couldn't post them yet as I hadn't given them to the people I had made them for! I made the "I HATE MONDAY'S" for my twin sister that is ALWAYS complaining about Hating MONDAY, she got it in today's mail! I made the Birthday card for a very good Friend of mine "BARB" we celebrated her Birthday on Friday!
For Barb's card I merged Jack and Piper together for more effect.... just LOVE being able to do that.. For Piper on Irene's card I just cropped her to what I wanted and then colored both of them with my Copic Markers.... Found some AWESOME papers to go with both of them...
If you haven't checked out her Digi's and rubber stamps you don't know what your missing..

Make it Crafty first ever DT call...

Good Thursday Morning everyone...:-)
so as you can see I have made another entry for the Make It Crafty DT call... only a couple days left to get your entry in.. click on that link if you would like to give it a don't know if you don't at least TRY!! So I am trying....:-)

So for this one I decided to use Zoe Celebrates... she is so fun and full of energy...
I started with Coloring my image will my Copic markers, yes I color first then pick out my papers. I used :
V01, 05, 06
and my colorless Blender
then I picked my paper which is My Mind's Eye Carefree "Precious" Baby Blanket / Lush Lilac paper & Carefree "Graceful" Elegant Print/ Poised Purple paper
I think it is just Gorgeous... then I picked out my Postage stamp nestabilities so that I could get ALL of her.. Was hoping that my chipboard pieces from Make it Crafty would come in in time, but they didn't so I had to grab out my Memory box dies to use.. used the fancy flourish and the butterfly. Added some diamond Stickle for a little sparkle for her. then I made a Triple bow and found that AWESOME jewel to add to the bow.
I hope you like her.

Now I have to answer some questions for Make it Crafty
1. Country you reside in (DT is open to everyone worldwide) Ohio, United States
2. What style of creations do you like to make? I love to make cards and layouts
3. What do you enjoy most about crafting? giving them away to people
4. What are your favourite products at Make it Crafty? Digi stamps are my current favorite, have ordered some of the chipboard pieces but they haven't come in yet.
5. Why would you like to be on the Make it Crafty team? I would LOVE to be on your team as I just "LOVE" your products and love the play with them....
