Quick Post

(Edited Version)
Hi Everyone:

Since my last post I have been dealing with a sinus & ear infection and been feeling rather terrible. So that is the reason for my disapearing act. So today I have a few things to share with you and to catch up on my posting for this month, which is going way to fast.

I have been trying to play along with my friend Barb's Challenge and finally felt up to it. I started this card about a week ago and never got to finish it until yesterday. Barb's challenges were based on her photography pictures which are beautiful by the way and her blog button was in my sidebar if you noticed it. I hope that some of you got to play along.

Join In The Fun!
My first card was based on the yellow flower picture, but later I saw that she had a picture of these beautiful yellow-red roses. I knew just what I had to do for this card creation. I feel in love with this picture immediately. Her picture is breath taking to say the least.

I was smiling from cheek to cheek because I had a Hero Arts new stamp that was a rose. So I just had to use it, but I actually stamped it and then increased the size to make this beautiful rose flower below. The sentiment is from their new release as well. The flower was coloured with STAEDTLER products and will be listed at the end of this post.

This card is being submitted to the following challenges:

Anything Goes Challenge.

My next card was made based on this beautiful picture. Isn't it amazing! 

This card was created using a digital stamp from MyGraphico and I really am happy with how it turned out. I also used STAEDTELR products here as well, but added a rustic feel with Ranger Distress Inks. My go-to products, can't create without them.

Being Submitted to the following challenges:

The image was printed on watercolour paper and then distressed with watercolor Marsgraphic markers and distress inks. Moon/sun was added with a punched out circle die and shaded with STAEDTLER watercolor pencils and markers. 

Thank you for dropping bye today. And tomorrow there will be an exciting post! I am having a Fimo give-away, along with a special Valentine's Day project to share. Be sure to check back later tomorrow to read more about this give-away.!

Wishing You Health & Happiness

Sorry to hear that you have been under the weather, dear gal! These cards are stunning, so you must be doing better. Love that rich flower, but those birdies on the wire have my heart. Thanks for sharing and take good care!

Simply breathtaking cards, Dana! Your colouring is so vibrant, and the dimension created by your shading...wow! This is my first time visiting but I'm a brand-new follower :)
I really hope that you're on the mend - hard to feel up to much of anything when you're fighting off germs!

I hope you're feeling better! Both my husband and I battled terrible colds the past 2 weeks. Saw both of your creations on Flickr and was blown away! I didn't realize until now that the flower is from the new HA Etched Flower stamp!!

Oh my goodness, these are both GORGEOUS, Dana! The flower one especially, just breathtaking! I'm sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well, and am praying that you are now on the mend! HUGS!
