Guest Designer at CTB (Photo Inspiration, Lady in the Garden) & Thinking of You Card

Do you like a photo inspiration challenge? We have it at  Catch The Bug this week can join us and you will have a chance to win some lovely and cute Images from Bugaboo Store. I made this card. Yeah, to coloring the Image I need time :-) also to make my card simple and fast to make I choose my old collection of design paper :) Normally I love to design my own DP :) 

I used this Photo Inspiration:

I choose this image named JJ Gardening for my card and colored it with my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor. My printer is an old one also after I colored the black line on the image some are gone also I drew it again with my black pen :)

Challenges for my card are:

Sister Act Challenge #103: Anything Goes(sdh a. p.)

Loves Rubber Stamp #148: Add Flowers(sdh a. p.)
Penny´s Challenge #224: Used Spooled Items (Ribbon, Baker Twine, etc) (sdh a. p.)


My Second card is for my Blogland friend...her lovely dog (Rosie, last news about here you can see here) just passed aways :'( .......I feel also how sad is she (her blog is empty till 6 days today).....hope I am near her home and I can hug her...I pray for you Asha, that you have much power through this sad time.

Here is the card for you:

Using this inspiration from Tag You´re It #20:

I choose yellow, green and blue color from my Distress ink, Sponged it and use the lovely dandelion DIE CUT from Neva my lovely friend (many thanks dear Neva) and use the sentiment from Hero Arts, also stamped the yellow, green and blue Bokeh Dots from Julie E. on the white cardstock. Here is the stamp I used:

  11. My dear friend, you've made two lovely cards, as always. Thank you so much for thinking of me at this time. I am having a hard time coming to terms with Rosie's passing. She was such a part of our family and we loved her so much. Losing her, although we knew was inevitable, did not make it easier. Your card and your thoughtfulness is very much appreciated. I am very blessed to have you in my life. Thank you so much for your hugs and prayers. Much love to you, Asha
