Paper Smooches and Memory Box…

PamSparksPSDeerBirthday

Hi everyone!  I’m behind posting cards… so there’s a few in this post… then Tilda coming for Tilda’s Town and then a Printworks snowman!   So hang on but don’t worry, I’m not going to start posting everyday all the time!

I wanted to get in on the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge Blog Anything Goes post.  This is a birthday card I made for Tim.  I saw one of the PS designers using this flourish for a snow look so I had to do it too! Stamped with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  Perfect for a January birthday! Colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  Right now ‘deer’ aren’t so ‘dear’ to me though.  Hit one with my car in July and did a lot of damage.  I just like the stamp and paper cute ones now!!!

A little Wink of Stella Glitter marker on the flakes and flourish too!

Happy Day!  My Deer card was one of the featured cards for this challenge!  YAY!

Paper Smooches
