Froggie Birthday-Masculine

I am trying really hard to make several boyish or masculine cards since I tend to only make girly ones. This froggie is a digi from all that scraps and I love him! fun, plus can be for girls or boys or men! Yea for versatile!
pale yellow green CS base is from Papertrey ink along with the tag die/stamp from tiny tags.
Froggie is colored with YG 17, 3, 1 copics along with the balloon too. print paper is from colorbok "english moss' that I just got from Joannes on Thursday.
That paper had been sitting with a few other items bought with birthday money on my desk....mocking me....waiting for me to play, but I couldn't get away till today to actually create something with my new stuff! Still haven't broken in my punches, but I will get to those very very soon!
No....the balloon is not like that. My printer went crazy...don't know what happened, but another printed normal, but I colored the frog so nice that I wasn't going to do it over again.

Halloween card

This card is for the Kraftin Kimmie Challenge of spooky cards...well, I don't have any of the halloween stamps, so I had to improvise. Since Drucilla here is a little crazed with her little Pins in her friend, I figured she would work out nicely for the halloween card. I never make halloween this brought me out of my comfort zone. I had the skull/crossbones paper from Hobby Lobby a long time ago....and had even had this stamp in mind when I bought it! The Orange cs is embossed with my cutting plate for my cuttlebug (yep, weird, but makes a nice texture without being overly strong) Distessed the edges of both cs. I used a spellbinder label die and the out of box technique.
The Layout is based on the Sketch on Sketch Saturday.
copics in YR's and C's

Negative Space Baby Boy Card

My Friend just had a baby boy on Tuesday morning and I needed a card! I used the challenge over at Charisma Cardz challenge for the use of negative space where at least 2/3rds of the card is to be blank. This ends up being perfect because in order to get my husband to sign it, the card did need to be nice and plain.
BG copics colored the Hippo from a TAC stamp set that starts with silly, but I can't remember the rest of the name. The sentiment and tag die comes from Papertrey Ink tiny tags. The Grey ribbon is SU taffeta from forever ago! I also entered this into the Blue Greens Challenge at the Copic creations challenge.
