Hello crafters, Hope you had a nice weekend, sad to see it go so fast.  On a good note I did get some crating time and so I thought I would share a couple cards I got to put together.

The first is a card I made, 6x6, using Close t0 My  Heart paper Kaleidoscope. I used the file form KaDoodle Bug Designs...Cutie KaToodles ~ Honey Wheelbarrow Bear..

 The second card I made using a digital image I think is a Whimsy stamp. which I colored with Spectrum Noir Markers. I last the paper with the marker  numbers I used though, sorry.


The stamp is from Close to My Heart and the flowers from my stash, and the papers are from CTMH and my stash of scraps/  

hope you like what I had to share, have a great weekend...what is left..
