Since I have been busy busy drawing all new releases for this hop I have not had much time to do the challenge for this week over at Paper Cupcakes, but I love to join in when I can. So, since I seem to have everything out and have a small breather here I decided to make a few cards today the first one for the challenge over at Paper Cupcakes. Nilla Berglie brought us this weeks challenge and it was create a card using the thought of "Strawberries & Cream" and the freebie image by Paper Cupcakes "Party Cake". So, here is my creation. I actually have some cream color on my cake, but you really can't see that too much in this picture. I used mostly my Bic Mark-its to color my cake. Made my layer flower, Martha Steward punch for the leaves and marvy punch for my little dragon fly. The pp is DCWV. I added the punch of green color, because I love the green top to strawberries and thought it would set off the red and pinks and the cream and white. Really pretty simple, but I loved how it turned out.

The second card I made was using the image by Paper Cupcakes "Summer Swim". I wanted it to be bright, cheerful and sunny. I used my Bic-Mark-its to color the image, chalk for my soft sky. My sun is on a pop-up dot and I wish I would have placed the chick on one as well, but oh well... the rest I think you can figure out! I think it one turned out super cute as well, or maybe it is just it feels good to be making something so it all looks good to me! lol

Well, I have one more, but I have to send it out to someone and will post it after they have received it. So, guess that is it for today, hope you are staying cool. Have a great weekend!
