Hello Monday

Here's my card for the SNSDC66 to use the colors of purples & greens. I used a Doodle Pantry digi image and sentiment, coloring with Copics and adding a bricked pattern panel done with an EK punch. I used green galore card stock with purple from a Paper co stack, and added a snippet of ribbon and a tiny matching brad.

Here's my CAS square card for the CAS-ual Fridays challenge CFC65. I used an image from the Cuter by the Inch stamp set, adding some Spica yellow glitter pen accents along with a square of yellow card stock and black ribbon.



Finally, here's my card for the the Sweet Stop Sketch challenge SSS171. I used a SNSS digi image along with some echo park dsp. The sentiment is from a SNSS clear stamp set and I added some stickles to Cocoa's party hat just for a little fun. Gemstones from Want2Scrap.

I'll end this post on a very sad note. Our dear neighbor passed away last night at the age of 53 after a freak accident yesterday afternoon at his home. We're all devastated, as he was the kind of neighbor everyone should be blessed to have. He was always kind, generous and so willing to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. We'll miss him terribly and I think we're all in a daze with the terrible news. I consider us extremely fortunate and blessed to have known him and lived next door to him for nearly 20 years.
