August FSOTM Pumpkin PigWit & Sketch #77 - From the Heart Stamps!

Happy Sunday Folks.

I actually, miraculously started and finished two cards.

I am going to link these up with the August Free Stamp of the Month @From the Heart Stamps AND the I {heart} Card Sketch with A Twist #77. Both of these cards were made using Pumpkin PigWit. Isn't he the CUTEST??? And the Twist is "think flowers power".



This first card is colored with Copic Markers. I sponged around the image with distress ink. The Circles were made my dipping a toilet paper roll in gold and silver ink and stamping them on the black card stock (PTI). I embellished with Prima Flowers & Washi Tape.



I colored this with colic markets. And sponged on some distressed ink. I cut a circle out with my Creative Memories Circle Maker AND cut the circle in half. HA!   I embellished with Prima Flowers and ribbon by PTI. Brown Card stock is also PTI. The striped DP is from American Craft (it was in my scrap box).

Here is the sketch that was created. I'm editing this in after the fact because I left it out.



I am not very good at Circles. I am unsure why.  Making a card with circles makes my head hurt. Again - not sure why. lol  So I think my circles, though unique, still meet the requirement. I hope so. lol

I hope to be more active in posting on this site. I hate how neglected it is.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs & Prayers,



Em
