Forget Me Nots........

Hello .. trying yet another card. I cannot for the life of me remember where or whos digi this is.  I would need to go through all of my files.  It's a pretty bouquet of Forget Me Nots.   I had it printed and in my box of 'to do' stuffs.  Seemed fitting to use them at this time.    I used color pencils in my fav combo of purples, blues and greens.  I trimmed it down and framed it with a blue piece of scrap cs also in my 'to do' stuffs.
I found a scrap of white and used a pair of Fiskar fancy edge scissors that I unearthed from years ago in my cleaning and purging process.  That took me back. 
The background paper is from DCWV in a blue wood grain.  I added gold mylar hearts down the side and gold mylar braid along the bottom from a sticker set I had hidden.  The HB with stamped with black StayzOn.    All of this added to a black cs base which is top folded.  As a final touch, I added a purple bow using embroidery floss.  
Working through the kinks one step at a time.  It feels good to get my fingers inky again actually. 

I would like to add this card to the following challenges if I get them in on time

Hello everyone,
Trying to get back into the saddle again 
Going with a fav
I love me some Bugaboo.

My card today follows on the color scheme that seems to have my attention lately.
The image is from Bugaboo - Birthday Bird 01 and I used markers and glitter pens.  I framed it with a piece of pink cs.

I then found this amazing piece of DCWV cs stock that somehow managed to hide in my stash until today.
'Party' was cut with an MFT die out of lime green cs and everything was mounted on a black side fold cs base.  I added orange Neuvo drops in the corner.
Baaaa Daaaa Booom !!

I would like to add this card to the following challenges please:

 I haven't posted anything in 2020
It was a very crazy year ....

Covid kick my tail ... 
but I'm happy to say, I'm still walking the earth.
Even if it's a little harder to keep up and to breathe.  

Hopefully I'll get into my craftroom to find it again 
it's been used as the catch all room and currently 
I can't seem to find the floor.  
Baby steps.

I did do one project ... it was glass
I called them my covid twins 
 it took me forever it seems (multiple months) 
  a little bit here and there.

Here's to wishing 2021 has something better 

and here's to wishing everyone a healthy and happy New Year

Birthday Bear

This is my team card for

Pattie's Creations.

The theme this month is Bears.

For my card, I'm working with the image Bear with Balloons. 
I printed the image on kraft card stock and then colored the image with colored pencils.   I die cut the balloons and sentiment tag and then edged them all with Antique Linen distress ink.  The birthday sentiment was stamped in Antique Linen and clear emboss powder and lifted with foam adhesive.   The wood grain paper is from DCWV and everything was set on a side fold kraft cs base.  I added buttons and Neuvo drops to the top.
I hope you have fun playing along with this challenge this month.

Thanks for stopping by.
