2 cards for 3 challenges + an award

Warning! Long post!!

I made two cards using Laura's Sketch #38 for 2 Sketches 4 You.

This first card is also for the "Red Hair" challenge over at the Copic Creations Challenge Blog. I used E19, E09, E97 for Sayuri's hair.

I printed out some digital papers from the Splish Splash set created by Rhonna Farrer for this card. You can find her work here at 2Ps!!

This super cute stamp is called " Sayuri With Bear" by Chubby Pencil. I got the digital version from All That Scraps. I smiled big when I first saw this image! Doesn't her big toothy grin just put you in a good mood? I adore her!!

This second card was also made for the "Let it snow" challenge over at Club Anya.

I covered the dry-embossed piece with some Diamond Stickles.

I used some Tulip Glitter Dimensional Fabric Paint on Miss Anya's outfit and accessories.

Now on to the blog award... I received this MeMe Award from the lovely Donna and Hannah a little while ago... Sorry for the delaying of posting this, ladies!

The rules are that I have to share 7 secrets and pass this award to 7 people. I decided to share some lesser known facts about me rather than actual "secrets." Here they are:

1. I eye-ball everything when I make cards or scrapbook pages. I have learned that if I insist on making everything precise, I'll never get anything done...

2. I hate raisins. Grapes are ok, wines are better, but NO raisins for me!

3. I don't have a driver's license. That's true! I don't drive. My sweet hubby takes me places that I need or want to go! I have a Taiwanese driver's license, but I never got around to getting a California one... Hubby has a manual drive car and I am not comfortable driving it...

4. I eat French Fries without catchup. Nope! Don't like catchup either!

5. I don't stay in the same room with a (or any) cockroach. We never get along that well.

6. I love Project Runway!

7. I must multi-task. I can finish a card in between checking emails and hopping around in the blogland. I rarely do one thing at a time. While I am typing this post, I am also snacking and trying to come up with a design for my next card! Now that I think of it, maybe it's good that I don't drive! LOL!!

Phew! That wasn't easy! I am going to give this award to these 7 fabulous and talented ladies:
Please go and visit their blogs! You will be amazed by their creations!

Thanks for sticking around for this long post! Hope you all have a beautiful weekend!

Wow, what great coloring you did! I love both cards. And how fun to know tidbits about you. My mom doesn't drive either, but she seems to survive in Ca without one for 20+ years now.
