Pink or blue?

I had to make a couple sympathy cards, but I thought it better to use "thinking of you" instead of "with sympathy", so if they want to display the cards longer, it wouldn't be a sad reminder.   This is an old Stampa Rosa stamp, which I've colored with prisma pencils and gamsol, and added lots of stardust stickles to the flowers, which you may have to get a close-up view to see.  
I've entered these challenges:
Allsorts - spring blossoms
Creations in Pink - lots of pink
Creative Knockouts - tic-tac-toe (glitter-image-dies)

Yay for sprinkles . . .

I needed a birthday card for this month, so this did double-duty, as I can also enter it into the Digi Doodle Studio challenge, as this is one of their adorable images.   I've colored with prisma pencils, then added stardust stickles to the sprinkles, confetti and her hair bow.   I did put drywall mesh behind the glitzy ribbon, although you'd have to get a real close-up view to notice it.   I added enamel dots to the upper corners, as well as a few on the cupcakes of the border punch.  And, now, you're excused to go enjoy a cupcake of your own - hahaha.

I'm pretty sure most of you out there recognize this as a Bugaboo image, and certainly one that makes you laugh.   Just a simple design, adding the die cut, flower, brad and gems to complete this creation.  I've entered these challenges:

Cupcake birthday . . .

This Bugaboo hedgie is just SO cute, and appears to have cupcake overload!   Then again, WHO can turn down a cupcake of any kind -- maybe he'll share one.

Tulip bunny . . .

Bunnies and tulips are a sure sign of spring.  I've used washi tape along the bottom of my card, and candi-dots at the top corners.   This card is one of several that was donated to the Bring Smiles To Seniors organization, dedicated to let senior residents know they're not forgotten.

Doggie thoughts . . .

This adorable image comes from the LOTV shop, and I kept to a simple design to keep the main focus on him.   Just a stitched die cut framing and a pretty bow to top off one corner.

Pondering . . .

This My Besties image looks as if she's pondering something . . . maybe her latest fashion statement of having her hair tinted pink!  I've colored once again, using prismacolor pencils and gamsol, adding stickles to a portion of her hair bows.   Otherwise, I think you can pick out all the other embellishments I used for my card design.   I just hope you all like pink!
