3 TGF Cards

Hello again! I’m back today to post the 3 cards I completed last week for the CHA Relay contest at The Greeting Farm. The premise of the contest was to use a free digi stamp to create a project, submit that project by the deadline on the following day and receive the next image in the contest. In the end, you would receive 5 free digi stamps plus a bonus if you completed all of the challenges for the 5 days. It was a lot a fun trying to hurry to get the cards completed and uploaded on time. I even took some Copics and a few printed images to work with me two days last week to get the coloring done on my lunch break. I was sad to see the contest end, but happy that it got me out of my comfort zone and got my creativity flowing! Here are my cards:

Supplies (Happy Birthday):
Cardstock: American Crafts
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey Lime Rickey
Embellishments: Recollections- pearl; The Greeting Farm- stamp (Mer Ian); American Crafts- rubon sentiment
Tools: Spellbinders- Circle and Labels Two dies; Quickutz- large dots embossing folder; Copic markers

Supplies (*untitled*, but doesn't she just scream 'Hey Sugah!'):
Cardstock: DCWV & Recollections
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey Eva
Embellishments: Spellbinders- Labels Nine; Prima flowers & jewels; DMC floss; Stickles; button from stash; The Greeting Farm- stamp (Charlotte)
Tools: EK Success Curved Edge punch; Copic markers

Supplies (baby card):
Cardstock: Bazzill & Paper Studio
Patterned Paper- Cosmo Cricket
Embellishments: Spellbinders Circle & Scallop Circle dies; The Greeting Farm- stamp (Toby Cub); Tea Dye Distress Ink
Tools: Copic markers

I've really been trying to use my Copic markers more, but I think I'd better take a class from a certified instructor if I want to learn to use them properly. I'll look into that this week ;-) Anyhoo, that's all I've got for today. I'm still working on the layout for my 'Favorite Song' page in the 'Book of Me' swap that I joined. Hopefully, I'll have progress to report on that front later this week!

Thanks for stopping by :-)
