A Card for my sister/Giveaway

Hello Friends,

Two of my favorite people were born today!  My sister and my husband.  My other big news?  I am on a new design team.  Called International Art & Soul.  It is a group that sprung from another design team that I was on for years.  This group is super laid back and just for the art of creating and learning from each other.

The theme was "stitching".  Here is my card created for my beautiful sis.

I don't know if you can see the stitching but it is there.  I am really into layering and distressing paper right now.  I received a distresser for Mother's day and I have really enjoyed using it.  I used my copic markers to color this scene and also added some stickles glitter in certain spots.

Here are the sentiments on the inside. 

I even decorated the envelope.

Okay, let's have a little giveaway.  As some of you know, we are very "crabby" here in Maryland, we are extremely proud of our blue crabs.  So here is a little stamp collection by Pink & Main.

So how do you win this prize?  Just stop by International Art & Soul and leave a comment for me.  This is gonna be a very quick giveaway, I will post the winner on Wednesday, May 31st.  I am not posting this giveaway anywhere else, this is just for my faithful followers.

Puppy Thanks

Good Morning my friends,

Just a quick post to show you this (kinda) CAS card that I made.  Notice the puppy paw embossing on the card.

I love coloring animals with my Copic Markers.  I also used my circle stitched dies.
