Fab Friday 53

Hello everyone!  I made this card for Fab Friday 53 sketch challenge....

I just LOVE this cute little station wagon with the tree on top!  It looks fabulous colored red, doesn't it?!!!  The Blendabilities markers are just the right thing to use when coloring in these, so easy!  First I stamped the trees, then added the sky in the form of chalk!  It's been forever since I used chalk!  It was super easy to get just the right amount of sky with a soft cotton ball.  Then, I stamped in the car and Christmas tree and colored those in. I used the color lifter to highlight the center part of the car.
 I don't have the Crumb Cake or skin color assortment yet, but those are next on my list, so I colored in the big trees with a Soft Suede regular marker.  It worked just fine for that. 

Here's a list of supplies that I used.....
Stamps: White Christmas
Paper: Marina Mist, Smokey Slate, White, Cherry Cobbler, Season of Style DSP stack
Ink: Memento black, Marina Mist,  Soft Suede marker, Cherry Cobbler, Smokey Slate, and Old Olive Blendabilites
Accessories: Chalk, Naturals designer button, Arrows EF, Linen thread

For Bob ~ Retro Sketches 138

I made this card for my great nephew, Bob, who turns 4 today!  I wanted to make something quick and easy and also something that would please a little boy.  I found this sketch over at Retro Sketches this week.....

I started out with some retired birthday paper that I had in my stash and pulled the colors from there.  I thought they were very boyish.  Then I turned to my go-to little boy stamp set, I Dig You.  
I added buttons and circles for embellishments, highlighting the number four.

I'm sure he'll enjoy his card....well just about as much as a four year old can, I guess!

Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: I Dig You, Flamingo Lingo
Paper: Just Add Cake DSP, Marina Mist, White, Garden Green
Ink: Marina Mist, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Garden Green
Accessories: Brights buttons, Circle punches, Large silver brads, Itty Bitty Banners die, bakers twine

Thanks for taking a peek!
