Soft Pencil Thursday!

Hello all! I can't believe it is Thursday again already! Do these weeks just fly by, or what? They do for me, busy busy! Well, it is Soft Pencil Digi day today and the image that we were asked to work with is called "Good Friend", and we were asked to make a friendship card. So, here it is:

I printed the image out two times, because I wanted to do a little layering. So, I colored all of the fist image with my Stampin Up markers, then I colored the snail and the bird again on the second image. I cut out the second bird and snail, and set aside. Next I cut out the entire first image with my Rectangular Spellbinder's Nestibilities, and matted it with some SU Taken with Teal card stock and a scalloped rectangular Nestibility. I used some Foam Dimensionals to pop it up a little bit on the mat. Then I layered my second bird and snail with some foam dimensionals and added a little blue glitter to the bird wing, just because I love glitter. Tee Hee. The card layout is this weeks card sketch over on Splitcoaststampers web site SC277. I used designer paper that I received as a gift from a 6x6 pack of DCWV Nursery Baby Boy. Good for more than just baby boy stuff, don't you think? The sentiment was printed out from Microsoft Word, and punched out and matted with my Stampin Up Oval punches. Of course I had to add some sticky gems in one corner just because I love those too!

Next month is the anniversary month for Soft Pencil Designs, so Elizabeth has asked me if I would stay on the Design team a while longer to help out with a big Blog Hop. We design team member are working on some projects to show off on May 6th! I heard a rumor that there will be some prizes given away, so tune into the Soft Pencil blog and here of course on May 6th for all the fun. Also, take a few minutes and go over to the soft Pencil blog and store, because Elizabeth has just released some more new images, some relating to mothers and mother's day! They are absolutely adorable.

In the meantime, while we are waiting for May 6th, I have some Mother's Day cards and others in the works using Stampin Up Stamps, Punches, Die-cuts, etc. I will be posting those between now and the Blog Hop day.

Until Next time.........Blessings, Lisa
