DTGD Day 6

I moved way slower today, I want to enjoy this process- not worried about whether or not I can do all of the challenges....  rather, enjoying the process and still on a mission to 'use unused stuff'!!!

I made a card from Day 5 and have a person in mind to send it to, she will get a huge kick out of it...
The background is very shimmery- wish it showed up.  The stamps are Sweet Stamps- nice to open them up.  Colored with Copics.

  Next, I found a Die-Version die I had not used (but loved), and made up a wedding card that I need in November. The cardstock is Paper Temptress- beautiful shimmer to it : )  except the black. I embossed the SU sentiment with black EP. The corner dies are Cheery Lynn. The panel under the couple is simply put through an embossing folder. There is a sheet of Vellum over the Ivory cardstock backing- it is old, old SU.

Back to the beach for the next card. I just got these seahorses from Michael Strong Stamps. I made this background in Turquoise, and added a little white with bubble wrap. The sentiment is Create with TLC. I added a little sea weed in Wild Wasabi using a Cheery Lynn die.

 Lastly, I made a card that is so not my style, but like doing this alot- and made 2 of these.  Another unused Die-Versions and a Sweet Stamps stencil.

 My Mother is back at my house, so we will be having some Friday fun- but not too much- she is tired from her adventures in Mass. and NH with my brother and sis!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh Shelly it looks as though you are having a ball - love all your cards, and that final one is really stunning - love the contrasting colour palette and texture. Enjoy your having your Mum home with you.

What a wonderful group of cards. They are all so lovely but I like the last one the best. It is interesting to see that pop of green. Glad your mom is back safe and sound. Have a nice weekend.

These are marvelous, Shelly! I really like the first one and the last one with the die you'd never used before. Beautifully done. :-D

You learned a valuable lesson. I try to do too much and end up not enjoying the process as I just want to get it done in time. Your cards are beautiful!
